What is Fat-Freezing Technology?

You may have heard terms like “fat-freezing” or “coolsculpting.” But what exactly do these terms mean? Coolsculpting is a fat-freezing method that involves attaching vacuum-like paddles to various areas of the body. These paddles suction to fat areas and cool them, eventually making these areas of your body feel numb. Coolsculpting sessions can require you to sit with these suction paddles on your body for up to two hours and can cause mild discomfort. One treatment causes very minimal differences and coolsculpting requires multiple sessions to see results.

A Better Way to Freeze Fat

Since coolsculpting and fat-freezing hit the market, science has been looking for ways to improve it. The product of these improvements is Cryoskin: a treatment system that is faster and more effective than coolsculpting. In a battle of Cryoskin vs. coolsculpting, consumers are finding Cryoskin as the standout winner. So what is Cryoskin? Cryoskin fat-freezing treatments are faster than coolsculpting and are more customizable. Cryoskin technicians hold an instrument that gets cold, then they move it around your targeted areas. Not only can they customize the areas and intensity of the treatments you want, they are able to switch in between two settings on the Cryoskin machine. One setting, CryoToning, targets skin and cellulite by increasing circulation and collagen production. The second setting, CryoSlimming, freezes and destroys fat cells. Pretty cool, right?

So How Does it Work?:

So we know that Cryoskin can freeze and destroy your fat cells. But what does that mean for you and your results? When the Cryoskin technician runs the the Cryoskin wand over your targeted areas, the cold temperature begins to freeze your fat cells. When the fat cells freeze, they die and are no longer viable cells. After the treatment completes, your body will begin to detect the dead cells and dispose of them. Basically, your body gathers the dead fat cells and you pee them out as waste! Quick, easy, painless, and highly effective. Unlike coolsculpting, nearly all clients are able to see visible results after their first treatment. You may wish to undergo multiple treatments until you reach your desired result.
