Cryoskin Q&A

What is CryoSlimming™?

The CryoSlimming treatments by Cryoskin use cold temperatures to reduce fat in a process known as cryolipolysis. In just one session, you lose as much as a half-inch from treated areas.

CryoSlimming lowers the temperature of fat cells so they can no longer survive. The treatment doesn’t harm the surrounding tissue, however. Your body rids itself of the destroyed fat cells through its natural waste-removal process. The fat cells are gone for good — they can’t regenerate.


A session takes just 30 minutes and requires no downtime. It’s noninvasive and painless — just effective in reducing fat. Anyone who has stubborn areas of fat can benefit from the sculpting and contouring provided by Cryoskin.

Is Cryoskin effective?

Cryoskin technology is absolutely safe. It’s temperature-controlled so it won’t harm your skin but will effectively destroy fat cells. The treatment is used throughout Europe.

Cryoskin technology treatments can also include CryoToning™ treatments that can also reduce the appearance of bumpy cellulite so you get a smooth look to your belly, thighs, and buttocks.

You’ll notice some visible results immediately. Your best results will appear over the course of 2-3 weeks as your body continues to flush away fat cells. Even several months after your Cryoskin treatment, your body continues to get rid of fat cells and reveal your new, slimmer physique.

Do I need to schedule downtime following Cryoskin treatments?

One of the greatest benefits of Cryoskin is that the technology is noninvasive. You can go right back to work, exercise, school, or daily tasks after a session. This makes Cryoskin effective and convenient.

How often can I undergo Cryoskin treatments?

Cryoskin slimming treatments can be done every two weeks or so. It takes your body this time to flush out the destroyed fat cells.

Your results are permanent provided you don’t gain weight due to diet or lifestyle habits. Cryoskin destroys some fat cells but not all, so remaining ones can plump back up if you take in an excess of calories.
