The Slimming session uses a three phase thermal shock to initiate apoptosis, or programmed cell death, a naturally occurring sequence aided by the lymphatic system. During a Slimming session, you will experience a localized warming sensation, followed by a cold sequence and particular massage technique. The immediate drop in temperature will initiate apoptosis once the fat cells have cooled to the temperature at which they can no longer sustain themselves. Once this cell death has been initiated, the fat cells will convert to cellular debris, to be cycled through the lymphatic system over the following fifteen days. You may see some immediate “slimming”, which is simply tension in the session area that will hold from subzero exposure. An optimal, longer lasting result will be seen at the end of three to five sessions.
This session can be done at a maximum of once every 14 days, so as to not overload the lymphatic system. Also remember you are not to have sugars or carbohydrates in the two hours prior to the slimming and two hours following the session. Presence of either close to the session time can interrupt the processes necessary to produce a desirable result. It should be noted that Slimming is strictly contraindicated on the breasts in both men and women as this is a glandular area.
