To help you better understand the Cyro T-Shock process, we answer some of your most frequently asked questions!
How Does Cryo T-Shock Work?
We did a deep dive into the slimming and cellulite treatments for the removal of cellulite and undesired fat. In our recent blog, we explain not only what the T-Shock does to kill fat cells, but also how those cells are eliminated and why the skin isn’t damaged.
According to the U.S. supplier of the device, Skin Science Solution, “Where the application of cold alone - as in cryoliposis - has been shown to break down fat cells which can contribute to the unsightly appearance of cellulite, thermal shock goes a step further in eliminating the cells from the body through lymphatic drainage for more immediate and effective results. Using alternating cycles of hot and cold, thermal shock kills fat cells and reverses the signs of cellulite by increasing blood flow and circulation, stimulating the production of collagen, and improving overall skin elasticity.”
For applications like the anti-aging facial, the program promotes skin firmness and helps with micro circulation, increasing the blood flow to capillaries by as much as 400%, which increases collagen and elastin production while tightening muscles.
Skin Science Solutions goes on to add, “Skin ages due to a reduction in collagen and elastin. By increasing oxygen and nutrient supply to the tissue, thermal shock promotes a more youthful appearance. When applied to the face and neck, consistently, this contrast therapy stimulates the production of collagen and improves skin elasticity, effectively smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.
Other benefits include: reducing puffiness around the eyes, give the impression of reduced pore size on the face and neck while lessening inflammation. Not to mention that while skin vessels and capillaries undergo a period of vasoconstriction to break down toxins stored in skin layers; an alternating cycle of vasodilatation efficiently expels the toxins from the body. This process paves the way for healthy skin cells to emerge for a taut, more supple appearance of facial skin.”
What Will a Treatment Appointment Be Like?
We make you as comfortable as possible! You’ll settle into a private room on a slightly heated massage table. There is soft music in the room and low lights so that you can totally relax.
Cryo T-shock treatments use precise combinations of warm and cold temperatures delivered to the surface of your skin. The technician uses a wand with a smooth metal disc that glides over the gel applied to your skin. The temperature ranges of each treatment are dependent upon the type of appointment and are precisely programmed to even the body part being addressed to garner the best results. A certified technician delivers the treatment and ensures that the appropriate ranges are maintained.
During fat and cellulite reduction treatments, there’s a prolonged period of cold, so it’s common to experience some numbness in the treated area. Any numbness will quickly subside following completion of the treatment. Some clients will experience a period of “bloating” following the treatment. This is due to the body sending blood in an attempt to warm the treated area. This too will quickly subside.
How Can You Achieve the Best Results?
At ReSet, we have a few requirements to help you achieve superior results:
- Drink water, especially if you are having Fat and Cellulite reduction.
- Please remove all make-up for Facial treatments.
Post Treatment Requirements
Fat and Cellulite reduction clients are required to facilitate lymphatic drainage within 4 hours of the treatment. A lack of facilitating lymphatic drainage following a treatment may negate many of the benefits. Suggestions include:
- A 30-minute cardio workout
- A massage or compression on the treated area
- 20-30 minutes in our infrared sauna
- 10-15 minutes on our whole body vibration plate with a lymphatic drainage setting
· In general, use the T-Shock treatments as a compliment to other healthy lifestyle choices like good diet and exercise. If you are interested in more support in these areas, we have plenty of options including:
o Personal Training
o Naturopathic Wellness Support
o Diet and Nutrition Support
