Cryoskin 2.0 Information & Frequently Asked Question's

How is it getting rid of my cellulite?

It should be remembered that it may be important to add drainage treatment once or twice a week between sessions.

Do I lose weight with this treatment?

It is very common that there is a loss of weight during the treatment. This is
due both to the loss of fat mass but also to the drainage techniques (exercise,
etc) and the diet and lifestyle required.

How is it helping me look younger?

The Cryoskin machine is capable of causing thermal shock
due to its ability to alternate rapidly and automatically between periods of skin
warming (up to 40°) and cooling (up to -8°). This phenomenon causes a very
strong increase in the local metabolism and an acceleration of the
micro-circulation which are both responsible for the production of collagen. The
collagen thus brings elasticity and toning to the skin and makes it possible to
visibly and durably combat skin aging.

What is the difference between this and other Cryo treatments (i.e. Cryo facial) -Same for cellulite

There are other manual cryotherapy machines. But tests and experience have
shown that no other machine is currently capable of an inertia as strong as the
Cryoskin. This inertia is due to the fact that the device does not only produce
cold. It works by heat exchange with the body and the ability to descend very
strongly and very quickly the temperature of the tissues by absorption of
calories, accumulation of calories and evacuation by a system equipped with a
ventilated hydraulic radiator.

Why can I only have a treatment every 2 weeks?

The phenomenon of apoptosis is a natural phenomenon. A programmed natural death of the fat cell. The latter is not destroyed by a phenomenon of cavitation which would make it explode and create cell waste which would be
very difficult, or impossible to eliminate. This is a self-destruction specifically for fat cells, whose ingredients are going to be removed slowly and naturally from the body at the rate of metabolism.

What happens if I come back before the 2 weeks?

As said before: aided by complementary drainage methods the treatment can
eventually be reduced to 10 or 12 days. Otherwise, the results may be
thwarted by the natural cycle of waste disposal and thus increase the risk of
clogging the pathways. This does not represent a significant risk but would
compromise the harmony of the results.

Why can I only have 2 areas done at one time?

Again, to not overload the circuits. On the other hand, there is a strong internal cooling of the tissues and the treating of more zones at the same time could cause in extreme cases hypothermia, but in many cases a phenomenon of
great fatigue.

What if I want to do my face, tummy, arms + legs in one session? Can I do the different options?

In our opinion and advice: NO
- Face and arm in a session for example
- Belly and legs in another session
In general, it is always advisable to practice treatment on the upper OR lower
body in a session.

Do legs count as 1 area or 2?

The legs would count as one area because you would divide the time between each leg (14 mins on one leg, 14 mins on the other).

Why is it only 10 minutes?

10 minutes is the time to be sure to get a result (although please note that certain treatments will be longer (i.e. stomach etc). It is not an issue to prolong this treatment for a few minutes if necessary. This also depends on the morphology of the person being treated and it may be useful to treat twelve to thirteen minutes in cases of larger fat content. The high performance of
CRYOSKIN renders a longer application unnecessary and thus avoids any risk of deterioration of the surface tissues and in particular the surface nervereceptors which are irreversibly destroyed by the freezing of the suction machines. This in some cases causes severe chemical burns.

Can I do an area for longer?

Working manually as well as on-screen displays make it possible to
continuously monitor the condition of the treated tissues. However, there is no
need or interest to work longer than expected, except when there is a larger
area you are working with (i.e. in the case of body mass). Pre-programmed
treatments were performed on average body surfaces so are effective across
a variety of body types.

Why can't I? What will happen?

The treatment could become a little irritating and local hypothermia could
cause some transient (not serious) pain.

Can I do this if I'm pregnant?

Like any external treatment, this is not advisable and of course forbidden on
areas such as the tummy, breasts or even the hips. The safest is to abstain
from treatments altogether.

If not, why can't I?

Because we do not know the effects of the acceleration of the local
metabolism on the fetus.

What are the side effects?

There are few. Sometimes localized redness that disappears after a few
hours. Sometimes some local pain that rarely exceeds 2 to 3 hours. There
may also be some itching without consequences and often due to the reactions of certain cosmetic products used by clients. Hence there is interest in asking clients to not use anything before coming to do the treatment
because some products can crystallize to the cold and cause discomfort.

Are there any risks?

The risks concern only people with contraindications mentioned and remain
minor and temporary.

Is there a certain person who is best suited for this treatment?

The best profile does not apply to "fat" or overweight subjects. The treatment
is not for clients requiring weight loss but rather for the vast majority of those
who have unsightly cellulite or fatty areas (often due to poor diet, poor lifestyle
or a static workplace, for example). The treatment is a treatment to
re-harmonize the body's curves and not a slimming cure.

How quickly will I see results?

The first results are generally visible from the first session and often very
encouraging. However, it should be noted that the best results appear from 15
days to 3 weeks after the start of treatment and extend for several months
after the end of treatment.

How long do these results last?

Depending on the individual and depending also on their lifestyle and diet, the
results last several months or several years. It is advisable to practice 2 or 3
sessions 6 months after the end of treatment to maintain results.

Can I do anything that enhances the treatment?

By implementing a healthy lifestyle and a good diet first. But also by the
addition of a powerful drainage treatment in depth. We can not advise you
enough to consider adding a DRAINSKIN device which has been developed
for this purpose. It utilizes a specific current capable of considerably
accelerating the velocity and flow of the returning liquids (blood and lymph),
thereby increasing exchanges, increasing the eliminating of organic waste and
enhancing the tone of vessels and capillaries.

Why is there such a significant immediate effect on the Face?

The cold temperature causes vasodilation in the blood vessels in the face, this
extra blood helps collagen be produced reducing wrinkles. It also reduces
pore size and improves the elasticity of the skin - which is why you get such a
significant immediate effect. The face treatment lasts a few weeks and is not
really permanent - it needs maintenance.

How is this treatment different to a Cryo Facial (using a local Cryotherapy machine)?

The cold temperature goes to a deeper level due to the way it’s applied to the
face (Fibrotic layer instead of just subcutaneous). This is why you get a more
significant effect with Cryoskin 2.0 as it’s stimulating more Collagen production
AND increasing skin elasticity AND reducing pore size.
Cryo Facials are nice but they just increase skin elasticity and reduce pore
size - which are more superficial effects than Cryoskin 2.0.

Why is this effective for Cellulite?

The treatment causes vasodilation in the blood vessels. This increases blood
flow which results in increased Collagen production. Collagen helps to break
down Cellulite.

How should you treat someone who is overweight AND has Cellulite?

You should do slimming one week / lifting next week and repeat - as this will
reduce fat and also stimulate collagen production which breaks down fat.
Ideally after the slimming treatments customers would do Drainage (Drain skin
OR lots of water and walking OR Compression with legs elevated).

Why do you need a 2 week break between Slimming treatments?

The 2 week break is needed for slimming as the waste is processed by the
liver and kidneys and it could create (minor) issues if people don't have this
break. This 2 week is the average people need which is why this the rule.

Why should you always use the gel supplied with the machine?

Many gels have been tested and this is the best for conducting the cold. It
reduces any air bubbles between the device and the skin which helps to
transmit the cold. It also lacks any active ingredients reducing the likeliness of
any allergic reaction to the gel.

Why can’t you just use Normatec type compression for Drainage?

For that type of compression to work you really need to put on the boots, wait
for the compression to start, heat and put the legs of the clients in upward
position. As no-one really does this we have created the Drainskin product
which is more effective for drainage.

What does the Drainskin do?

***CHECK - Low level micro-pulses of electricity opens the veins and
stimulates the blood flow, this stimulates the production of noradrenaline -
produced by the body which improves circulation.
The machine was tested by medical specialists which established 20 mins of
Drainskin is equivalent to 5 hours of walking. It was also tested on older
people who can’t walk due to circulation issues - many were able to walk again
after having this treatment.
This will last longer if you have a course of treatments.

For more Permanent effects of Cryoskin 2.0 do we have any evidence of this for Fat Loss?

From the testing most people got more lasting results after 3-6 sessions - it
depends on the person. 1 person had to stop after 1 session as they lost too
much fat.

For more Permanent effects of Cryoskin 2.0 do we have any evidence for Cellulite?

The treatment is more temporary for Cellulite. The cold creates vasodilation in
the treated area. This increases the production of collagen which helps to
break down Cellulite. Cellulite will return if there are no changes in diet /

For more Permanent effects of Cryoskin 2.0 do we have any evidence for the Face Lift?

The treatment is more temporary for Face Lifts. The cold creates vasodilation
in the treated area. This increases the production of collagen which helps to
reduce the appearance of fine lines / wrinkles. The treatment also closes the
pores and increases the elasticity of the skin which gives you the “Cryoskin
glow”. However the aging process continues unfortunately so the effect is not

What testing has been done to know that these are the right number of minutes to deliver hot/cold for the fat loss / collagen treatments?

You can treat each area for up to to 20 mins per area.
14 mins was set as the standard for the machine as appointment times in
France are usually 30 mins (2 areas x 14 mins per area = 28 mins).
We will be adding a 20 min setting for the US which US retailers can charge a
higher amount for.
20 mins is more effective than 14 mins.
You should never go over 20 mins as it can lead to areas of the body freezing
- this stops the treatment working (as the cold is conducted by the blood /
lymph) and can be disconcerting for clients.

How was temperature levels for each body part decided?

Different temperatures were tested on different body parts. The most effective
temperatures was selected. If the impact stopped when you got below a
certain temperature the highest effective temperature was selected. For
example if -8 degrees Celsius was as effective as -12 -8 was selected as
higher temperatures are better as some people’s skin is more fragile than
others and lower temps could freeze the skin.

Why is it important to have a machine which can precisely measure the temperature it’s administering (which is the case with Cryoskin 2.0 but not with some cheap imitations)?

You have nerves in the skin and they can get damaged at lower than -8
Celsius and if these get damaged you can’t recover.
Somebody put an ice cube on their knee which was colder than it should have
been and kept it static. In this case this damaged the nerve and the person
was paralyzed in the foot (this didn’t happen with Cryoskin 2.0 - but is a
reason why exact temperature control is important).

How does Cryoskin 2.0 heat and cool the wand and why is this able to be precise in terms of temperature control?

The cold/hot is delivered by something called the Peltier effect - which is
where you pass current between 2 layers of ceramic. The coolant in the
machine conducts this heat/cold to make it more effective. This allows you to
be very precise about the temperature you give someone. This is very
important as if you can't control the temp you could damage people's nerve
endings and in extreme circumstances this could lead to paralysis (which is
why people shouldn't buy cheap machines!). More about the Peltier effect here
if you are a real geek.

How many layers or mm of the skin does this treat?

4cm (about 1.5 inches) - but you need 14 minutes to get there.

Does this target subcutaneous or Fibrotic fat?

Subcutaneous is the easiest to reach so it reaches this layer easily.
Fibrotic is more difficult to reach but the gel conveys the cold very well by
removing the bubbles of air on the skin to help conduct the cold and this
allows you to reach this.

If there a specific BMI (Body Mass Index) range where this works most effectively?

Don’t treat people classed as “Obese”. It would be too difficult to reach the
whole area and they won’t be able to bear it for 5-6 hours and the liver and
kidney can’t process that level of waste.
Obese people have to diet first.
“Obese” is usually BMIs over around 30 - but you can use your discretion
based not the fact that you need to be able to treat an area which is half a
sheet of A4 page.

How should you treat the neck?

For lifting/toning the neck you should use the toning setting for the face (if it's
double chin you use the slimming setting for that area).
We also have a new radio frequency machine coming (SkinRF) which is very
good for skin tightening.

What is Prodesign vs Aesthetic vs Pagani?

Prodesign and Aesthetic are owned by the same person (Laurent Chevalier)
Aesthetic sells directly in France via a catalogue.
Prodesign sells via Distributors globally.
Pagani manufactures machines for Aesthetic/Prodesign.
The IP (Intellectual Property) for Cryoskin 2.0 is owned personally by Laurent
Chevalier and Bernard who works at Pagani.

What is the difference between the 3 treatments that the machine can provide?

The programmed temperatures depend on the desired effects and the zones
being worked on. When the effect sought is more superficial (for example to
cause hypervascularization of the epidermis and the dermis), the
temperatures employed will be cold but positive because the tissue is more
superficial and does not require that the phenomenon of apoptosis be caused,
but rather acceleration of microcirculation and collagen production. On the
contrary, when the desired effect is deeper (belly fat layer, for example), the
temperatures employed will be aimed at causing apoptosis by crystallization of
intracellular electrolytes and therefore the temperatures employed will be
largely negative.

What is unique about the Facial treatment using Cryoskin 2.0?

Cryolipolysis is the use of below-zero temperatures to eliminate fat in the body
whereas thermotherapy is the use of cold temperatures to rejuvenate and
smooth the skin. Used for massaging the face and the body, CRYO SKIN 2.0
delivers temperatures between -2°C to +4°C with the following effects:
✓ Accelerates biochemical reactions, increasing the oxygen and nutrient
supply to the tissue, obtaining a draining effect.
✓ Stimulates the production of collagen, improving the elasticity of the skin.
✓ Firms muscles which retract with the cold.
✓ Lasts for several months with only a few sessions.
CRYO SKIN 2.0 is the only thermotherapy device on the market offering facial
rejuvenation treatments.

Is there anyone that can't do the treatment? E.g. Medical reasons? Needs to be a certain age?

The treatment is not recommended for children. It is not a problem for
adolescents of age 15 or older.

Is there anyone you would advise not doing it for other reasons? i.e. Just won't work for them?

There are few failures. But sometimes some morphologies and metabolisms
do not give the expected results. It is also very often observed that these
partial failures are due to very poor diet/lifestyle or to undeclared medical

Why do you need the gel?

The gel has been specially designed to retain all its qualities of gliding and
protection from -30 ° up to + 60 °.

Why is it a certain gel?

It does not crystallize and therefore does not risk to stop the gliding of the
treatment head and especially protects the skin against the risks of burning by
the cold. WARNING: Do not use any non-conforming product - that could
cause skin damage. (same gel for all treatments)

What happens if you do it without the gel?

Apart from the fact that the treatment head will have difficulty sliding on the
skin, the heat and especially the cold will be much less penetrating and the
risks of spontaneous freezing of the water contained in the surface tissues will
be increased, therefore increasing the risk of alteration of these tissues. The
treatment will thus be much less effective and much less pleasant or even
unpleasant. The results will not be there and this is one of the few causes of

Is there a certain technique for the machine?

Yes you need to receive training.

What if the machine is not applied properly?

This treatment, if properly applied, is safe. This is no longer true in case of
misuse – although the risks involved are very limited and contained. The
major risk is to not obtain the desired effects and to dissatisfy a customer.

What is the science behind the treatment?

Technology and technique must be distinguished. The technique used is a
medical technique that has seen its birth in part by the use and application of
rather high temperatures on certain elements of the body to fight against
serious cell damage. Then on the contrary the use of intense cold to cause the
destruction's of certain cells. In a different and surgical way, we are familiar
today with the ambulatory use of cold in the tumors of the liver or the kidney
and the spectacular results obtained by the apoptosis of these and their
self-destruction. The same goes for fat and cellulite which are also infected
with more benign tissue of course.

Some customers wanted the treatment on their neck. Is there a reason we can’t do this?

You can treat the neck (Toning/Lifting OR Slimming for double chins)

What is the basis of the Cryoskin 2.0 machine?

It was built based on a medical device called Cryo T-Shock.
Cryo T-Shock is used to help people recover from injuries - it reduces
inflammation and pain in infected areas.
This device has won awards for effectiveness and has been used for over
30,000 treatments.

Why can’t we use the Cryo T-Shock machine to do the same treatments as Cryoskin 2.0?

Cryo T-Shock is only set up for 5 minute treatments. This will not be effective
for slimming / cellulite / Face lifts.

Why does reducing the temperature of the body destroy fat cells?

Cells crystallize when reduced in temperature and fat cells crystalize before
the other cells. So if you get the temperature right you damage the fat cells but
not any other cells in the body. This is why the Cryoskin 2.0 slimming
treatment works.

What makes the Cryoskin 2.0 device unique?

It is the first device which applies the cold temperature to fat in this way
(instead of the “suckers” used by CoolSculpting which can create significant
side effects like disfigurement).
The machine is very well manufactured by a company which makes over 40
different medical devices and has been doing so for the last 70 years.
It uses an effect called the “Peltier Effect” to precisely control the temperature
of the Wand (how the cold/heat is applied to the body).
There are some significant safety measures to stop the coolant mixing with the
electric circuits. This is very important as some cheap alternatives don’t have
these features and this could lead to electrocution of clients. The safety
mechanisms are:
1) The liquid is double sealed within the machine
2) The liquid part of the machine is separated from the electrics by a plastic
3) If the box is not kept level a ball bearing blocks the cable so liquid doesn't
pass through the cable. This ball bearing can be ejected by going through a
program on the front screen

What is the % of fat reduction? Do we have any data on this?

Cryoskin 2.0 was tested on over 100 people at different temperatures and
treatment periods.
There was an average of 38% of fat loss on the treated area over 4 sessions
in 6 weeks
The maximum fat loss was 45% in the treated area.
Some women only lost 15% of fat in the treated area.
Men’s abdominal area was particularly effective - with a good sample losing
45% of fat in that area.

How long does it take to work?

There is usually not an immediate reaction as it takes time for the fat cells to
be destroyed.
Drainage makes a difference as you can do another treatment sooner - it
accelerates the clearing out of the damaged fat cells through the lymphatic

Has anyone had any serious side effects / been burned?

No. (100 people tested + over 300 machines in use in France)

What about water retention?

Volume can be fat or water retention - some women have more water than fat
- so more need to do more drainage in those cases.

How should you demonstrate effectiveness of slimming to clients?

You should measure the area before and after.
When we treated a client in France her leg sized reduced by 1 inch after one
This really works - so show it off (although bear in mind it can take a few
treatments to work).
