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.

Ideal candidates:

  • Individuals with a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle looking to lose the stubborn fat that does not improve with diet and exercise alone;
  • Individuals under 35 BMI;
  • Individuals who have pinchable subcutaneous fat (“pinch an inch”);

Contraindications for Slimming:

  • Active Cancer or individuals taking post-cancer drugs
  • Lymphatic Disorders or removed lymph nodes
  • Severe Diabetes (unmanageable by medication)
  • Pregnancy/Breastfeeding
  • Severe Kidney or Liver Disease
  • Severe Raynaud’s Syndrome
  • Severe Allergy to Cold
  • Progressive Diseases (MS, ALS, Parkinson’s)
  • Irremovable body piercing(s) in treatment area
  • Implants in treatment area

Toning / Facial

Interchangeably referred to as a “Lifting”, this session utilizes the application of cold temperatures to tighten, smooth, and shape areas lacking elasticity by increasing microcirculation (oxygenated blood flow)/collagen and elastin production. The Toning works through the application of cold which produces vasoconstriction, then the opposing hand which follows creates vasodilation. This session does not use thermal shock as a factor (it uses exclusively cold) and therefore does not remove any fat cells. This session can be done once a day, but is recommended once per week for best results. The difference between the two available options should be thoroughly discussed with a client before proceeding with the session.

Ideal candidates:

  • Individuals with cellulite;
  • Individuals with loose skin, or skin lacking elasticity/evenness in tone;
  • Individuals with signs of aging (fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, etc);

Contraindications for Body Toning:

  • Pregnancy/Breastfeeding;
  • Severe Raynaud’s Syndrome;
  • Severe Allergy to Cold;
  • Progressive Diseases (MS, ALS, Parkinson’s);
  • Irremovable body piercing(s) in treatment area;
  • Implants in treatment area;

Contraindications for Facial Toning:

  • Botox injections in the past 30 days;
  • Filler injections in the past 90 days;
  • Severe Raynaud’s Syndrome;
  • Severe Allergy to Cold;
  • Implants in treatment area;
  • Progressive Diseases (MS, ALS, Parkinsons);
  • Irremovable body piercing(s) in treatment area;

Pre / Post
Session Instructions

  • If possible, avoid all kind of sugar or carbohydrates 4- 5 hours before and after the cryo session. 2 hours is a must pre and post treatment.
  • The cold weakens and retracts the adipocyte (fat storage cell)
  • Consuming sugars will return immediate energy to these cells, so the apoptosis (cell death) effect will be less efficient and can even be canceled.
  • The lymphatic system takes 15 days to complete an entire cycle. Results will improve over 2 weeks following the session. Additional slimming sessions can be completed 2 weeks after a treatment.
  • Avoid exercise directly before a session. It will be harder to cool the body down and complete the slimming effectively.
  • For best results, maintain the best possible diet and lifestyle to accompany the treatment (drink plenty of water).
