Frequently Asked Questions
Is The Cryo T-Shock Safe?
The device is very safe. The cooling system is controlled by an electronic temperature sensor located in the processing head of the device and the temperature is controlled in real time by the machine and figures displayed on the screen. Pagani created the Cryo T Shock five years ago and has sold hundreds of units throughout Europe. This exact machine won the most innovative device award at Gicare 2014 International Expo in Paris.
How Does It Work?
The body contouring treatments last for roughly 30 - 60 minutes and are done manually employing a massage technique. The session begins with 2 minutes of heat and then a prolonged period of cold (22-26 minutes) and then back to heat for another 2-3 minutes. The purpose of the treatment is to lower the temperature of the fat cells enough to cause what is known as the phenomenon of apoptosis. This phenomenon is triggered when the temperature of the fat tissue is between 12 and 17 C which causes these cells to die. The cells are then naturally passed through the body’s lymphatic system and excreted through sweat and urine.
What Are The Benefits?
Clinical studies have shown that this technology naturally destroys fat cells, but as with most techniques, the results vary from one individual to another. The expected effect is usually rapid: part of the fat cells are destroyed during the session while most will be eliminated within 2 to 3 weeks. It has also been proven to help with micro circulation and a significant increase in collagen due to the thermal shock that is caused by the hot and cold.
Frequency of Treatments?
Fat freezing treatments can be performed once every 15 days. There is a physiological reason for this: when apoptosis occurs and some fat cells die, waste is formed. This will be eliminated by natural routes (blood, lymphatic system and urine). Metabolism must therefore be allowed to evacuate this waste without overloading the system. Other treatments can be performed more frequently as there is not the same waste removal required. The number of treatments needed per client is undetermined, everyone responds differently.
What Should I Do Following A Treatment?
Choose one of the following: A vigorous 20-30 minute workout, dry brushing, dry heat suana, massage or compression will accelerate the benefits.
What’s The Difference Between Cryo T Shock and Other Contouring Treatments?
There are other manual cryotherapy machines. But tests and experience have shown that no other machine is currently capable of such dramatic results as the Cryo T-Shock. These results are due to the fact that the device produces both heat and cold. The exchange within these temperatures has a dramatic effect on the body’s tissues causing them to drop to 12 °. When fat tissues reach this temperature they die and are passed through the lymphatic system.
Possible Side Effects?
There are generally no side effects apart from the amount you urinate will increase slightly over the 3 days following the treatment along with the appearance of your urine in color. Any localized redness will disappear after a few hours. In rare cases, localized pain may occur but will dissipate within 2-3 hours. Itching may occur however this is generally due to the reaction of certain cosmetic products used by clients.
How Long Do The Results Last?
Depending on the individual and depending also on their lifestyle and diet, the results last several months to several years. For fat loss treatments, the change is permanent much like liposuction but must be maintained with proper lifestyle as ALL fat loss treatments can be reversed if weight is continually being gained. For Cellulite and Skin Tightening an ongoing monthly maintenance schedule is recommended.
How Quickly Will I See Results?
The first results are generally visible in a week following the first session and sometimes immediate however, best results appear in 2 to 3 weeks after the start of 1st tx and extend for months after the last.
If you have any of the following, treatments are not recommended:
Kidney disease, undergoing dialysis or chemotherapy, pregnant women, and diabetes.
Are B12 shots safe?
Yes, taking Vitamin B12 is very safe.
There is a small risk of developing redness at the injection site but it can be minimized by using proper techniques and making sure to use an antiseptic prior to application.
Vitamin B12 is a water soluble vitamin which means that high levels in the blood will be urinated out. There is no real risk of developing Vitamin B12 toxicity unless you have chronic and severe kidney function (meaning your urination isn’t normal). Outside of these issues vitamin B12 shots are very well tolerated.
Is Botox expensive?
It is a cost-friendly and non-invasive alternative to a surgical procedure. Botox is generally used to target these cosmetic challenges:
Moderate to severe forehead lines, Crows feet, Frown lines, Lips, Chin, Neck, General wrinkles
