The unique technology to freeze only superficial fat cells during a session begins by warming the skin, thus bringing the fat cells closer to the surface. The cooling heads then deliver regulated temperatures through an on/off process that keeps the surface of skin just above 32 degrees, freezing level. A special gel is applied to the skin to prevent frostbite to exterior skin cells. Within the set time frame of about 30 minutes during this phase of the treatment, the fat cells crystalize causing apoptosis, or cell destruction to only subcutaneous fat cells which are then carried away and eliminated by way of the kidneys through the lymph system over the next two weeks. This therapy has been highly tested and proven to be able to effectively target only the fat cells within the skin and not below that during the slimming process.
A CryoSkin Facial is a toning process that does not destroy fat cells. The toning process uses warm and cool temperatures to create thermal shock to the skin stimulating collagen, elastin and increasing circulation, all of which have proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. By this process of building the substructure of the dermis, aging or scarred skin plumps up similar to youthful skin making it appear smoother and more even textured.
When a light source from this therapy comes in close proximity to the skin, photons penetrate the tissue where it then interacts with chromophores located in the cells resulting in photophysical and photochemical changes that lead to alterations in the molecular, cellular and tissue levels within the body. The specific wavelengths of light used in PBM are not dangerous and in fact increase tissue strength, resolves inflammation and relieves pain.
