How Quickly Will I See Results?

The first results are generally visible within a week following the first session – sometimes instantly. However, it should be noted that the best results appear from 15 days to 3 weeks after the start of treatment and extend for several months after the end of treatment.

How Long Do The Results Last?

Depending on the individual and depending also on their lifestyle and diet, the results last several months or several years. For Cellulite and Skin Tightening an ongoing monthly maintenance schedule is recommended for the first few treatments.

Where does the fat go? Can it come back?

The CryoContouring fat-freezing procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in treated areas by about 20% to 25%.

The body naturally flushes the fat cells out through the bloodstream and the lymphatic system in a few days to weeks after treatment, so they won’t migrate to another area of your body. And, unlike what happens with other procedures, there’s no change to fat cells in untreated areas.

Is CryoContouring Safe?

Yes. The treatment is completely safe. It is a non-invasive treatment of adipose tissue to induce lipolysis – the breaking down of fat cells. It reduces body fat without damage to other tissues. It consists of a special developed technique of controlled heat and cold used and applied to the client’s skin.The treatment requires no anesthesia, and has no risk of scarring or neuropathy.

The system is technologically advanced all but eliminating human error. The cooling system is controlled by an electronic temperature sensor located in the processing head of the device and the temperature is controlled in real time by the machine and figures displayed on the screen.

What has clinical research demonstrated?

Clinical studies have shown that this technology naturally destroys fat cells, but as with most techniques, the results vary from one individual to another. The expected effect is usually rapid: part of the fat cells are destroyed during the session while most will be eliminated within 2 to 3 weeks. It has also been proven to help with micro circulation and a significant increase in collagen due to the thermal shock that is caused by the hot and cold. Research is ongoing.

What are the contraindications?

Anyone with the conditions below should not do this treatment:

  • Kidney disease or dialysis
  • Pregnant women
  • Severe diabetes
  • Undergoing chemotherapy
  • Inflamed, infected, or swollen areas of skin

Should you have any questions, you should consult your doctor

What side effects may occur?

There are generally no side effects apart from an increased urination over several days following the treatment.

What is the maximum number of areas that can be treated simultaneously?

Two plus a facial. Consisting of one large and one small. This is to not overload the body’s pathways. There is also strong internal cooling of the tissues and the treating of more zones at the same time could cause in extreme cases hypothermia and fatigue.

How does it feel?

The treatment is painless, with some clients describing it as rather pleasant. This is due to the massage technique and the session beginning with skin warming transitioning into the instantaneous decrease of temperature.

How does CryoContouring differ from Cool Sculpting?

Cold Sculpting typically costs around twice as much as CryoContouring. CryoContouring is a very affordable, noninvasive and painless process. It requires no anesthesia, has no risk of scarring or neuropathy, and only requires 30 to 60 minutes. CryoContouring incorporates a cycle of heat-cold-heat to facilitate in the body’s pathways to eliminate “waste”. Coolsculpting utilizes a 2 min massage after cold therapy of the target area.

How does it differ from other fat removal methods?

Other methods of fat removal primarily involve a necrotic cell death by damaging fat with heat, high-intensity focused ultrasound or chemical injections. Each of these other approaches pose a potential technical challenge, particularly with respect to targeting the right adipose tissue depth and unintended damage to other structures close or within the fat layer.
