CRYO T-SHOCK is a device designed for wellness and aesthetics. Cryotherapy hyper stimulates the skin and tissue, greatly speeding up all cellular activities. It has proven efficacy in aesthetics for slimming and body sculpting. The results that it achieves also applies to the skin. A Cryo T-Shock treatment causes blood vessels and capillaries to expand by up to 400%, which in turn increases the production of collagen and elastin. It relaxes facial muscles and larger targeted muscles, providing immediate improvements to the appearance by tightening skin and giving a healthy glow.
CRYO T-SHOCK improves the general condition of the skin by increasing oxygen and nutrient supply which results in skin tightening and the reduction of wrinkles. During a CRYO T-SHOCK treatment the skin vessels and capillaries undergo a period of vasoconstriction (constriction of blood vessels) followed by vasodilatation (dilation of blood vessels) upon finishing the session. This causes toxins stored in the layers of the skin to be broken down and flushed away. The intense cold activates collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin, leaving the skin firm and tight. After several applications, clients have noticed their skin becoming smoother and more even toned with regained elasticity and an improved overall youthful feeling.
Provoking a shock by cooling and or shocking (alternating cold and warm) the skin with CRYO T-SHOCK around the face and neck, triggers deep layers of collagen and elastin into production. This will smooth out facial lines, reduce blemishes, wrinkles and result in an overall tighter appearance.
Cryo T-Shock treatments will naturally begin to renew production of collagen and elastin. Consequently, the results of a course of treatments will deliver:
a more youthful, glowing and even toned skin appearance.
reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
production of collagen and elastin resulting in fuller, more youthful and rejuvenated skin.
reduction in puffiness around the eyes.
reduction in the size of the pores on the face and neck, limiting the intake of toxins, dirt and grime.
lymphatic system benefits including the flushing away of built up toxins and soothing inflammation and irritation.
reduction of the severity of skin conditions like Dermatitis, Eczema, Acne and Psoriasis.
metabolic rate increases and stimulation of Endorphin levels.
The different functions and processes which take place in the body are caused by chemical reactions occurring between hormones and receptors. These are carried through the body through the blood stream. The areas of the body which have a lot of adipose tissue (fat) tend to have a poor blood supply. This means the blood borne hormones which trigger lipolysis – the breakdown of fat – are unable to reach the fat cells and therefore the fat cannot be broken down. CRYO T-SHOCK stimulation cools the surface of the skin very rapidly. The body reacts to this extreme cold by turning up its metabolic rate to produce heat. The blood vessels in the area expand, leading to an increase in blood flow, allowing the hormones in the blood to reach the fat cells and break down the fat.
The temperatures that are delivered by a Cryo T-Shock treatment induce lipolysis – the breaking down of fat cells – to reduce body fat without damage to surrounding tissues. Subcutaneous fat cells are naturally more vulnerable to the effects of cold than other surrounding tissue. Exposure to cooling causes fat cell apoptosis – a natural, controlled cell death, which leads to the release of cytokines and other inflammatory mediators that gradually eliminate the affected cells. Inflammatory cells gradually digest the affected fat cells in the months after the treatment, reducing the thickness of the fat layer. Lipids from the fat cells are slowly released and transported by the lymphatic system to be processed and eliminated.
The controlled thermal shock delivered by the CRYO T-SHOCK is fundamentally different from other non- or minimally invasive modalities. Other methods of fat removal primarily involve necrotic cell death by damaging fat with heat, high-intensity focused ultrasound, radio frequency, gases or chemical injections. Each of these approach poses potential technical challenges, particularly with respect to targeting the right tissue depth and unintended damage to other structures close to or within the fat layer.
Cellulite is the changes in skin texture that result in an “orange peel” appearance to the skin. Cellulite is much more common in women than men. Studies show 85-98% of women have some cellulite. Men and women organize their fat differently. In men, the connective tissue fibers that organize and support fat run primarily parallel to the skin. This means that men have minimal pulling down of the skin by fat deposits and therefore smoother skin. Unfortunately for women, their fat is organized perpendicular to the skin. This results in a pulling down of the skin by the connective tissue support structure and an uneven surface.
Cellulite is a normal process in women. Only in the last few years have any studies been done to identify the cause of cellulite. Effective treatments are an even more recent development. Cellulite forms in the superficial fat layer. All fat is not cellulite, only the part present in the superficial layer. The superficial layer is the last area to be affected by weight loss.
Therefore, exercise and weight loss do not eliminate cellulite. Even women who exercise regularly and follow low-fat, nutritious diets may still have cellulite. This makes weight management and cellulite treatment completely different issues.
The first cause of cellulite is a hardening of the connective tissue support system of fat. These are referred to as connective tissue (fibrous) septae. These are made of collagen. Over time, these septae harden and contract. The contraction results in most of the dimpled appearance that characterizes cellulite. Additionally, the contraction leads to a blockage of the blood vessels and lymphatics. The blood vessel blockage further hardens the septae. The lymphatic blockage leads to thick, swollen appearing skin.
The second major cause of cellulite is protrusion of fat cells into the lower part of the skin known as the “reticular dermis”. This protrusion results in worsening of the dimpling.
Cryo T-Shock treatment for cellulite addresses both of these issues – cold and warm temperatures are transmitted to the subcutaneous tissue and promote lipolysis, increase microcirculation and improve local blood flow to the areas being treated enabling lymphatic drainage and stimulating the production of new collagen which helps to break down cellulite. The micro massage of the treatment also reduces fibrotic tissue.
There are structural differences between a man and a woman’s skin. Cryo T-Shock has taken care of this by creating pre-set programs specifically designed for men.
A man’s skin is about 25% thicker than that of a woman’s, the texture is tougher and regular shaving stresses male skin leading to sensitive, irritated skin. During a Cryo T-Shock treatment, the skin vessels and capillaries undergo a period of vasoconstriction followed by vasodilation causing toxins stored in the layers of the skin to be broken down and flushed away. The intense cold activates collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin, leaving skin firm and tight.
Pre-set programs specifically designed for men help to:
Reduce the appearance of crows feet and forehead lines
Lift and improve jowls and muscle tone
Sculpt and refine the jawline
Reduce double chin
Smooth deeper set wrinkles along the face and neckline
Tone the chest and abdomen
Reduce belly fat
Improve muscle tone and tighten the skin
