Is Cryoskin Right for Me?
Is This Treatment Right for Me?
Say hello to Cryoskin in Clearwater! Our goal at Trim Studio is to educate our clients on the power of this technology and what role it can play in making your goals a reality.
CryoSlimming and CryoToning treatments are a great opportunity to address trouble areas, diet and exercise-resistant fat, skin sagging, cellulite and other signs of skin aging without surgery or other invasive, painful procedures. During your private, one-on-one consultation with our staff we will go over your lifestyle, aesthetic goals and general health to make sure it’s a good fit all around.
Although these treatments are widely recognized as being safe, there are a few contraindications to keep in mind. The application of Cryoskin technology is not appropriate for clients with any of the following conditions or circumstances:
- Raynaud’s syndrome
- People who suffer from very poor circulation
- Pregnant and/or breastfeeding mothers (Exception: CryoFacial)
- Severe diabetes and/or neuropathy
- Liver disease
- Kidney disease
- People who have had Botox or Fillers in the last month (This relates to CryoToning of the face only)
If any of the above apply to you, please let us know before commencing treatment.
Ensuring a Good Fit
CryoSlimming is a permanent fat loss tool, most appropriate for people who experience diet and exercise-resistant fat in localized areas like the tummy, love handles, arms, thighs, etc. Though this technology is not a weight loss treatment nor a substitute for healthy lifestyle choices, it is an excellent tool to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Though not a perfect measure of lifestyle and treatment candidacy, at Trim Studio we use the Body Mass Index (BMI) scale in the creation of personalized treatment plans for our clients. As a general rule of thumb, the closer you are to your goal weight, the more effective Cryoskin treatment is likely to be. Clients with a BMI of 35 or more are not appropriate candidates for treatment.
CryoSlimming vs Weight Loss
CryoSlimming (cryolipolysis) freezes, destroys and thus reduces the number of fat cells in the area(s) treated. After being exposed to extreme cold and frozen, they die and are naturally eliminated from the body.
CryoSlimming is not the same as losing weight. In the process of weight loss, fat cells shrink in size but the number of fat cells you have in your body is maintained. During CryoSlimming, fat cells are eradicated, thus affecting the overall number of fat cells which remain in the body.
The Importance of Lifestyle
During CryoSlimming, the number of fat cells in a treatment area is reduced. The cells that are destroyed will not come back. It is possible, however, to gain weight, thus causing remaining fat cells to expand as a result of poor lifestyle choices (diet, exercise, etc.) Thus we encourage our clients to protect their investment and commit to applying simple, healthy choices.
While we don’t need you to lose weight for this treatment to be effective, gaining weight while receiving treatment will make it hard to see any visible changes.
Most of our clients find themselves feeling extremely motivated to take care of their health during treatments, and we love this. We also highly encourage activities which support your body’s natural lymphatic system in eradicating the dead fat cells. Lots of water and some form of light exercise, even if just a brisk walk, will help this process along.
CryoToning & Maintenance
Skin sagging, cellulite and other signs of skin aging are a result of a number of factors, one of which is the decreased production of collagen and elastin in our bodies as we age. CryoToning improves micro-circulation gives collagen production a boost.
Because these factors are ruled by the process of aging, CryoToning is best recommended in an ongoing maintenance series. By regularly improving the circulation of fresh, oxygenated blood to the treated area, we are able to increase collagen production, restore elasticity and tone to the skin, combat sagging and diminish the appearance of cellulite as well as fine lines and wrinkles
