Yes, the Cryo T-Shock is a safe, non-invasive treatment of adipose tissue to induce lipolysis—the breaking down of fat cells – to reduce body fat without damage to other tissues. It consists of a specially developed technique where warm and cold are used and applied directly to your skin.
The 30 – 60 minute treatments are executed manually through a slow massage over the selected area of the body. Each session will begin with clean skin followed by a light gel application. The treatment begins with heat or cold, alternating between the two at varying times and temperatures. It is a non-invasive and painless treatment that feels like a light massage.
Cryo T-Shock uses the technology of the Peltier cell by safely and quickly generating heat or cold. Each session starts with a warming phase followed by rapid cooling. The combined effect literally “shocks” the cells which has a far more profound effect on the results vs. using only warm or cold.
Temperatures are pleasant and non-painful. Skin and fatty tissue are subjected to triple thermal shock (heat-cold-heat) or (cold-heat-cold) which optimizes results.
T-Shock Slim is best for your stomach, love handles, under arms, bra-line, glutes, double chin and inner or outer thighs. T-Shock Slimming treatments can be performed once every two weeks and T-Shock Tone treatments can be performed every 2-3 days. Use T-Shock Tone for your face, arms, legs, and stomach.
T-Shock Slimming causes fat cell apoptosis or cell death of the fat cells alone. Beneficial cells are not affected. The dead cells are evacuated through the lymphatic system and will eventually pass through the kidneys. Waiting every two weeks ensures that the lymphatic system and kidneys are not overloaded.
T-Shock Slimming may require 5 or more sessions over several months to see the best results. T-Shock
Toning results are more immediate and also may require multiple sessions to achieve optimal results.
There are generally no side effects apart from increased urination over several days following the treatment. In very few cases, there was localized redness that disappeared after a few hours and in rare cases, there was local pain that did not exceed 2 to 3 hours. There was some experience of delayed onset
muscle soreness from treatments on the stomach due to unintentionally engaging the abdominals, which disappeared later that same day. Anyone with the following conditions should not receive Cryo T-Shock treatment: severe kidney disease or dialysis; active cancer / chemotherapy; severe Diabetes
and pregnancy. Anyone with an open abdominal hernia should not receive a fat reduction in that area. Botox and fillers should not be used two and four weeks respectively in advance of facial treatments.
Each treatment time will vary between 30 and 60 minutes, depending upon body region and type of service provided.
