All You Need To Know About Cryoskin


Remember the days when you used to eat whatever you wanted and not gain weight or notice an inch of difference in our waistline? Those days are long gone. But it doesn’t mean that our toned, more youthful-looking bodies need to stay completely in the past. Advances in science and technology have brought forth efficient, convenient ways to restore our youth and help us to look and feel like we’re back in our late teens or early 20s. Well, you guessed it right, yes; we are talking about Cryoskin here.

What is Cryoskin?

Cryoskin is non-invasive technology which uses cooling technology to freeze and destroy fat cells and reduce fat instantly. It is pain-free and more effective than Botox. It is used to burn fat cells, boost collagen production and improve the skin’s appearance.

There are three types of Cryoskin treatments:


CryoSkin slimming is quite commonly used in areas like the stomach, thighs and arms for visible slimming decreases. This treatment focuses on one area of the body at a time. It starts with 2 minutes of heating at 40ºC, then 12 minutes of cold at -8ºC are applied to problem areas. This combination of heat and cold helps in destroying fat cells.

It consists of a three-phase thermal shock that can naturally destroy fat cells. If you’re looking to lose fat on your thighs, stomach, and arms or back in a quick and painless way, this is the solution for you. A typical CryoSkin slimming treatment lasts for 28 minutes.


A CryoSkin Facial treatment is commonly used for cold therapy facial treatments as well. These popular treatments widen blood vessels in the face (called vasodilation), which allows increased blood flow leading to more collagen production that decreases signs of aging or wrinkles. These treatments are known to improve the elasticity of the skin.

With this non-surgical facelift, you can see the results immediately after one session. The aging process is continuous, it does not stop, but the CryoSkin 3.0 facial can still help you. It can stimulate primary collagen production, lifts the face, and visibly reduce wrinkles to make you look younger and fitter.


CryoSkin Toning focuses on a single area at a time, although unlike Slimming, multiple areas can be targeted in a single session simultaneously. CryoSkin Toning leverages cold to improve microcirculation. It results in the boost in the production of collagen, which helps in eliminating cellulite & thus reduces some inevitable signs of aging.

If you’re looking to slow down the aging process or to remove cellulite, this is the treatment for you. It also speeds up your metabolism, which ultimately boosts your collagen production. CryoSkin is typically a 20 minute cold therapy treatment.

What Are the Benefits of Cryoskin?

CryoSkin treatments offer three main benefits – Slimming, Toning & Skin Rejuvenation.

Slimming occurs by freezing fat cells by targeting specific areas in your body. When those fat cells go below freezing temperatures, they die and get absorbed by your lymphatic system. You can say that it is a natural, advanced non-invasive treatment and a non-intrusive way of losing fat instantly.

Toning happens as a result of thermal shock, and it also benefits you by improving circulation and producing healthy collagen. Even with a single CryoSkin Toning session, you can have anti-aging effects that are easily visible to the naked eye.

Finally, Skin Rejuvenation happens as a result of improved circulation, and stretch mark reduction, decreased cellulite, smaller/closed pores, etc. It is generally considered an overall benefit of Cryoskin and will result in whether you book a slimming or toning session.

When will I see results? Is there anything I need to do?

Like most body treatments, the best CryoSlimming and CryoToning results occur after around 5 sessions. The first results are generally visible from the first session, though, and are often very encouraging. Results continue to appear from 2 to 3 weeks after the start of treatment and extend for many months.

This is due to the loss of fat mass and a healthy diet & an active lifestyle. Lymphatic drainage techniques, which should be done once or twice a week between sessions, also has a part to play in it.

For even better results, our experts recommend that you should not consume sugar 2 hours before and after the session (up to 5 hours if possible), and it goes for all sugars, including slow-digesting ones found in rice, bread, pasta, cereals, etc. As you know, sugar is a vital power source for fat cells, and for successfully losing weight, sugar should be cut from your diet.

If you are wondering how it works, we’ll spare you all the technical terms and keep it simple. In the most basic sense, fat cells happen to be more sensitive to changes in temperature than other cells in your body. So when they are cooled, the water in the cells expands and breaks them. And when these cells die, they are passed out of the lymphatic system.

Are the Cryoskin treatments permanent?

Cryoskin Slimming/Fat Loss

It depends on person to person (especially on their lifestyle and diet), the result can be permanent! It is advisable to have 2-3 sessions 6 months after the end of treatment for maintaining the best results. Some people also choose to repeat the treatment every few years or as needed.

Cryoskin Toning/Slimming Cellulite Reduction

The treatment is more temporary for cellulite reduction and toning. The sub-freezing temperatures create vasodilation in the treated area, all the while boosting the production of collagen, which helps in breaking down the cellulite. Still, cellulite will return if there is no change in diet and exercise.

Cryoskin Facial

The results will last for several months, with only a few sessions. The treatment increases help in boosting collagen, which helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines/wrinkles, close pores, and increases the elasticity of the skin, which gives you the ‘Cryoskin glow.’ However, as the aging process continues, the effect does not remain permanent.
