Karen | Operations Director
We asked Delaney, Head of Training & Development which Cryostar treatment is her favourite to have and CryoToning was a firm winner! Carry on reading to find out how it works, the benefits and what she uses the treatment for.
What is CryoToning?
CryoToning treatments utilise the application of cold temperatures to tighten, smooth, and shape areas lacking elasticity by increasing the microcirculation - oxygenated blood flow - to the treatment area. This in turn helps to increase collagen and elastin production, both of which are key proteins in the skin. This treatment is best used to address loose skin, cellulite, and signs of ageing.
Who are the ideal candidates?
Ideal candidates for the CryoToning treatment include individuals with cellulite (in which case combining CryoSlimming and CryoToning is typically the best approach), individuals with loose skin, individuals with skin lacking evenness in texture or tone, and individuals with signs of ageing.
CryoToning is also the perfect option for clients who are athletic, with not enough pinchable subcutaneous tissue to be considered CryoSlimming candidates, but who still want to increase definition and tighten the skin.
What does the treatment feel like?
The treatment is very consistent from start to finish. Many clients report it feels like an ice cube moving across the treatment area for 30 minutes. CryoToning, while still employing subzero temperatures in some cases, is applied with a more gentle technique than CryoSlimming due to its intended penetration of the tissue (i.e. reaching simply the epidermis and dermis). The warming from the technician’s hand also produces a relaxing effect.
What can I expect from the treatment in terms of results?
A treatment programme of 5 sessions, performed once or twice per week, is recommended for best results. Some clients may require 10 sessions, or a combination package of CryoSlimming and CryoToning depending on their concerns and desired treatment outcomes. We typically recommend that clients over the age of 45 come in 2x per week for best results.
Most clients start to see sustainable results from CryoToning around their third or fourth session, as the treatment does have a cumulative effect in the body where microcirculation and collagen production ramp up over time.
Our clinical study demonstrated that 100% of those studied experienced improved skin quality. See the results and read testimonials on that clinical study for yourself.
How can I achieve the best possible results?
CryoToning, like CryoSlimming, is not an alternative to diet and exercise, and thus a balanced exercise routine and healthy diet should be maintained throughout the programme. In order to achieve the best possible results, it is encouraged to increase water intake during any CryoToning treatment programme to help improve skin quality.
Maintenance is essential for CryoToning treatments, so be sure to schedule your maintenance package with your Cryostar provider after your initial programme.
How long will my results last?
Collagen production and microcirculation are mainly determined by age, genetics, and various lifestyle factors, so the results of these treatments will not be permanent.
For clients over the age of 45, we recommend starting with a treatment programme of 5 sessions, 2x per week, then maintaining every 1-3 months as needed.
For clients under the age of 45, we recommend starting with a treatment programme of 5 sessions, 1x per week, then maintaining every 2-3 months as needed.
How is CryoToning different from other skin-tightening modalities?
CryoToning is a completely natural and non-invasive modality. While other modalities risk necrotic injury and trauma to the skin, CryoToning is a safe and gentle treatment that packs an effective punch.
