CryoSkin...What you need to know

Cryoskin is a trio of noninvasive treatments for slimming, toning, and cellulite reduction. Developed in Paris by Pagani, the treatments all harness a type of cold therapy (cryotherapy), using sub-zero cold temperatures to stimulate new collagen production and fat loss. According to the manufacturer, a clinical trial of 18 subjects, ages 18 and 68, showed "an average loss of 1.64" around the waist, an average weight loss of 8.16 lbs and a 4% overall BMI decrease" after 6 sessions of Cryoskin

.CryoSlimming In this cryolipolysis (fat freezing) body contouring procedure, your provider will use a handheld wand to warm the treated area for two minutes, bringing subcutaneous fat cells toward the surface of the skin. The skin is then rapidly cooled—down to -4 Celsius—for 12 minutes, triggering cell death (aka apoptosis) without harming the surrounding tissue. The thermal shock of the cold can feel uncomfortable, but side effects are usually limited to redness and soreness in the treated area for a few hours after your treatment. Over the next two weeks, your lymphatic system naturally flushes the destroyed fat cells through your lymphatic system. You may also feel more thirsty, have loose stools and have to pee more often. While you may see some improvement after your first session, at least six CryoSlimming treatments are recommended for the best results. The treatments can be done every 7-15 days. This "lunch break treatment" can be done in about 30 minutes. You'll see your initial results within two to three weeks of your first treatment and optimal results about three months after your last session. Results are considered permanent, as the destroyed fat cells won’t return. However, if you gain weight, the remaining fat cells in the area can expand. RealSelf Tip: Cryoskin Slimming is similar to CoolSculpting, as both treatments reduce fat via cryolipolysis. However, CoolSculpting uses paddles that suck in the excess fat, while CryoSlimming uses a wand that your provider moves around in a massage-like motion. CryoFacial During a Cryoskin facial treatment, a technician uses an extremely cold wand on your face in upward our outward motions. This treatment boosts blood flow and collagen production, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin tone. You can expect some results after a single session—decreased puffiness and inflammation, improved pore size, tighter-looking skin—though these may last for only a few weeks. The treatment can be done every seven days, and 3–5 treatments are recommended for optimal results. With repeated sessions, you’re more likely to notice long-term effects in skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, and increased elasticity due to the development of new collagen over time. RealSelf Tip: The manufacturer recommends abstaining from the facial for three months after having Botox injections. However, doctors on RealSelf seem to agree that a cryofacial is a relatively superficial treatment that shouldn't have any bearing on the effects of Botox. Talk with your provider if you've recently had Botox or dermal fillers. CryoToning Cellulite The device used for Cryoskin toning for cellulite is similar to that of CryoSlimming. Just a different technique. The cold causes vasodilation, or widening of the blood vessels, which stimulates blood flow. This improves what the manufacturer calls "microcirculation" and accelerates metabolism, which stimulates collagen production. Over time, increased collagen can thicken the skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite, making dimpled buttocks or thighs look smoother. Both CryoToning Cellulite and CryoSlimming are effective on the same spots—legs, buttocks, and abdomen—and there’s no downtime with either treatment. Still, it’s important to keep in mind that neither of these is a weight-loss treatment. They work best on people who are close to their optimal weight but have a few areas that may be resistant to diet and exercise. RealSelf Tip: While increased collagen production can help smooth mild cellulite, moderate to severe cellulite needs more intensive treatment to break up the fibrous bands that pull down the skin to create deep dimpling.

How much does CryoSkin treatment cost?

  • Average Cost:

  • $997

  • Range:

  • $300 - $1,500

The price you pay will depend how many Cryoskin sessions you have, your provider's level of experience, and a few other key factors. You can finance your treatments.

How long does Cryoskin last? Results with CryoSlimming are considered permanent, as the destroyed fat cells won’t return. However, if you gain weight, the remaining fat cells in the area can expand. CryoToning Cellulite treatments are said to last up to five weeks. CryoFacial results from one treatment are seen immediately and last a few weeks, though repeated treatments can create longer-lasting results (from increased collagen production) that may last up to six months.

Is Cryoskin safe? All three Cryoskin treatments use essentially the same technology, the only difference being the setting to which the wand is programmed. The wand has built-in sensors that help keep the treatments safe.

The treatment is not recommended for people with severe Raynaud’s disease, poor circulation, severe diabetes, and cancer. It's also not advised for women who are pregnant.

Can you lose weight with Cryoskin? Like all body contouring treatments, CryoSlimming is not intended to be a weight loss treatment. It's best suited for people who are already near their ideal weight who wish to subtly slim and tone specific body areas.
