The Cryoskin machine is capable of causing thermal shock due to its ability to alternate rapidly between periods of skin warming and cooling. First the heat is applied for 2 minutes on the treatment area. Heating allows for the fat cells to rise to the surface which are then quickly targeted during the 12 minute cold treatment of each area. The CryoToning treatment only uses cold temperatures – the cold creates vasodilation in the treated area. This increases the production of collagen which helps to break down cellulite. NOTE: cellulite may return if there are no changes in diet or exercise.
