WHAT IS IT?
The Cryo T Shock by Pagani has been in premium spas throughout Europe and is the most innovative and versatile anti-aging device on the market to treat localized fat, to reduce cellulite, and to tone and tighten the skin. It uses state-of-the-art thermography and cryotherapy (thermal shock) to reshape the body. This is the first cost effective body contouring solution and won the Most Innovate Device at the Gicare 2014 International Expo in Paris. Cryo T Shock offers CryoSlimming and CryoToning. CryoSlimming safely and effectively uses thermal shock to naturally destroy fat cells without any damage to the skin. The Cryo T Shock breaks down fat cells, which your body naturally flushes out through the bloodstream and then the lymphatic system in days to weeks following the treatment. It is a safe, painless and a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. It is most similar to “Cool Sculpting” but is cheaper, painless and more effective. CryoToning helps reduce the appearance of cellulite, fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen and elastin production while tightening muscles.

IS IT SAFE?
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Cryo T Shock uses the technology of Peltier cells by safely and quickly generating heat followed by transdermal cryotherapy. The 20-20 minute session starts with a warming phase followed by sudden cooling. Temperatures are pleasant and not painful. Skin and fatty tissue are subjected to triple thermal shock (heat-cold-heat) which optimizes the results. The heat has an effect on triglycerides by making them unstable and therefore attacks the contents. Adipose cells or adipocytes (fat cells) are particularly sensitive to heat and cold and this very important variation in temperature allows for a more efficient and faster elimination of adipocytes by modifying their crystallization. The cold accelerates the apoptosis (a natural controlled cell death) of the adipocytes. The synergy of the thermal shock leads the destruction of fat cells. The adipocytes cannot survive the cold temperatures and some adipocytes are even eliminated directly during the session. The rest will be eliminated gradually over a few days or weeks. This technique leads to a reduction of fat mass in a targeted area and is not a weight loss solution. holding the deposits together. Repeated remedies will slowly take away upper layers of fat. The cells which have been destroyed are pulled into the bloodstream and are subsequently naturally disposed through the lymphatic system. Cryo T Shock is the ultimate anti-aging treatment by eliminating unwanted fat cells, reducing cellulite and toning and tightening the skin.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CRYOSLIMMING VERSUS CRYOTONING?
WHERE CAN I DO THE TREATMENT?
CryoSlimming: stomach, love handles, under arms, bra-line, glutes, double chin, inner or outer thighs.
CryoToning: face, arms, legs, stomach
HOW OFTEN CAN I DO IT?
WHAT DOES THE SESSION FEEL LIKE?
The 20-30 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 session will then start with heat followed by cold. It is a non-invasive and painless treatment that feels like a light massage.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
HOW DOES THIS COMPARE TO OTHER COLD SCULPTING TREATMENTS?
This is very affordable, noninvasive and painless process that requires no anesthesia, has no risk of scarring or neuropathy, and only requires 10-30 minutes. 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 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.
CAN I DO ANYTHING TO ENHANCE THESE TREATMENTS?
Yes, implementing a healthy lifestyle, good diet and increasing blood flow after the treatments. Adding massage compression like NormaTec and whole body cryotherapy is recommended to enhance the results.
WHEN CAN I SEE THE RESULTS?
CryoSlimming may require 3-5 sessions over several weeks and months to see the best results. CryoSlimming sessions are done once every 2 weeks as to allow for proper lymphatic drainage. CryoToning results are more immediate and also may require multiple sessions to achieve optimal results.
HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST?
Depending on the individual and depending on their lifestyle, the results last several months to several years. It is advisable to continue 2-3 sessions once every 6 months to maintain the results.
ARE THERE ANY CONTRAINDICATIONS?
Anyone with the following conditions should not do this treatment:
- Severe Raynaud’s Syndrome
- Very poor circulation
- Severe Diabetes
HOW DOES THIS HELP WITH CELLULITE?
The CryoToning uses below zero temperatures that penetrate below the skin. Cellulite is caused by subcutaneous deposits of fat primarily in the legs and glutes. The Cryo T Shock triggers the fluids that bind the fat cells together to crystallize. This crystallization destroys the fat cells and the bonds holding the deposits together. Repeated sessions will slowly take away the upper layers of fat. The cells which have been destroyed enter the blood stream after which they are disposed of via the lymphatic system.
