Is Cryo FATSHOCK safe? The device is very safe. The programming and electronics are computerized and the cooling system is controlled by an electronic temperature sensor located in the processing head of the device. The temperature is controlled in real time by the machine and figures displayed on the screen for the clinician to monitor accuracy.
Is Cryo FATSHOCK the same as CryoSkin and Cryo T-Shock? YES! This is the same machine. We just personally loved our drastic results so much that we decided to name our procedure FATSHOCK to really highlight what this procedure does. We think FATSHOCK says it all!
How Does it Work?
The body contouring treatments last about 30 minutes, beginning with 2 minutes of heat, followed by 22-26 minutes of cold and then back to heat for another 2-3 minutes. This lowers the temperature of the fat cells enough to cause apoptosis (cell death -- triggered when the temperature of the fat tissue is between 12 and 17 C). After the cells die, they 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 with most targeted fat cells destroyed during the session and eliminated within 2 to 3 weeks. The "shock" from the transition from hot to cold to hot has also been proven to help with micro-circulation and to increase collagen production. 
How Does if Feel?
The treatment is mostly painless, with no downtime. Most clients describe it as pleasant (especially the heat treatment), while a very few feel a slight (but very tolerable) discomfort from the cold for usually less than a few minutes of the total cold treatment time. 
Who Should Not Receive Cryo FATSHOCK Treatments?
Clients who are pregnant or have Severe Diabetes, Kidney Disease or are on Dialysis or undergoing chemotherapy should not be treated.
How Often Can I Do This?
Fat freezing treatments can be performed once every 15 days and lifting treatments can be performed every 7 days. Why? When apoptosis occurs and some fat cells die, waste is formed. This will be eliminated by natural routes (blood, lymphatic system and urine). Your metabolism needs 2-3 weeks to evacuate this waste without overloading your system.
What Should I Do After the Treatment for Best Success?
Very Important: Please drink extra water before and after and avoid carbs and sugars for 24 hours prior and 48 hours post treatment.
To achieve maximum results we recommend following up your Cryo FATSHOCK treatment with increased circulation such as brisk walking, jumping on a mini-trampoline, massage therapy, compression therapy, or the gym.
What's the Difference between Cryo FATSHOCK and other Body Contouring Treatments?
Clinical studies and client trials have shown the alternating combination of heat and cold to produce superior results to those of other cryo and thermal modalities, which use only one therapy -- hot or cold.
What is the Maximum Number of Areas That Can Be Treated at One Time?
Two. Consisting of one large and one small. Again, to not overload the body’s pathways. There is also strong internal cooling of the tissues and the treating of more zones at the same time could cause in extreme cases hypothermia and fatigue.
  • Arms and Legs
  • Arms and Stomach or Love Handles
It is also okay to do a Toning Session on the same day as a Slimming Session because these are different settings.
Who Should Consider This Treatment?
Anyone who is looking to lose weight, reduce cellulite, tighten saggy skin or treat stubborn areas of fat they are looking to remove.

How Long Do the Results Last?
The fat that is killed is gone! Now...you can't overeat and expect to not gain more fat! So, if you're eating a healthy diet (with occasional splurges) and getting some exercise, you'll have lasting results. If you're looking for a miracle that allows you to eat all you want and stay slim forever? Let us know when you find that :). Slimming is most successful in people with around 20 lbs or less to lose that want to take off stubborn fat deposits in targeted areas.

For Cellulite and Skin Tightening an ongoing monthly maintenance schedule is recommended. With Facial and Neck Toning ask us about CO2 Fractional Resurfacing as part of your maintenance protocol.
What Are the 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 disappeared after a few hours. In rare cases when 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.
Will the Toning Treatment Cause Fatloss in My Face?
No, the toning setting is a different temperature than the slimming setting and will not cause fatloss. 
How Fast Will I See Results?
The first results are generally visible within a week following the first session. However, it should be noted that the best results appear from 15 days to 3 weeks after the start of treatment and extend for several months after the end of treatment.
