Fat freezing explained

Cryo T-Shock Body Contouring

Cryo T-Shock device delivers non-invasive, non-surgical, body contouring treatments using
award winning thermal shock technology, ergonomic handpieces, and pre-programmed
protocols. The protocols have been formulated through rigorous clinical trials.
Thermal shock technology alternates between hot and cold temperature variations and
sequences to:
reduce fat cells
reduce the appearance of cellulite
tighten loose skin which has lost its elasticity
increase collagen and reinvigorate the skin
improve the condition of the skin by increasing oxygen and nutrient supply to the skin
reduce the overall signs of ageing
benefit the lymphatic system by flushing away built up toxins

How thermal shock can help reduce fat cells

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 cells) are unable to reach the fat cells and therefore the fat
cannot be broken down.

Cryo T-Shock treatments cool 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 Cryo T-Shock treatments induce lipolysis 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 weeks and 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 Cryo T-Shock treatments 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.

Cryo T-Shock body treatments are not suitable

for people who suffer from:

kidney or liver disease or are on dialysis
severe allergy to cold
lymphatic disorders
circulatory disorders
severe diabetes where sensation has been lost in the extremities
active cancer or chemotherapy or chemotherapy within the last 12 months
progressive diseases (MS, ALS, Parkinson’s, Neuropathy, Polyneuropathy)
untreated abdominal hernias
varicose veins in the area being treated
pregnant or breastfeeding
