Cryoslimming: What to Expect

Among the different types of cryoskin treatments, cryoslimming can help reduce fat in targeted areas of the body. This month, we’re diving into what cryoslimming is, what to expect, and how to prepare for an appointment at Peak Recovery


What is Cryoslimming?

Cryoslimming is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses a switch of hot and cold temperatures to reduce fat in specific body areas. The procedure is based on the principle that fat cells are more sensitive to cold temperatures than other types of cells. So this means they can be selectively targeted and eliminated without damaging surrounding tissue.

Cryoslimming is typically used to target areas such as the face, abdomen, hips, and thighs. It’s effective in reducing fat in these areas by approximately 20-25%. This procedure focuses on contouring the body by reducing pockets of stubborn fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.

What to Expect During the Procedure

The procedure typically involves the use of a device that applies a suction cup to the skin. This cools the underlying fat cells using a controlled cooling system. The cold temperatures used are typically between -5 and -10 degrees Celsius. Depending on what areas you plan to treat, an appointment will typically range from 35 minutes to an hour or more. Cryoslimming is painless, but patients can expect a slight pulling sensation in the treated area, like a massage technique. This is usually well tolerated! Some also state that this feeling is rather pleasant!

How to Prepare

In preparation for the procedure, it’s vital to inform your practitioner about any medical conditions you may have. This includes things like cold sensitivity or numbness, as well as any medications you are currently taking. It’s also important to avoid drinking alcohol and smoking for at least 48 hours before the procedure. For an appointment with us, you don’t need to bring anything with you, just yourself!
