You work hard to stay in shape, but despite eating a healthy diet and going to the gym regularly, you’re still bothered by problems like cellulite and stubborn, unwanted fat. This is a common problem for men and women of all ages due to a combination of factors such as genetics, age, hormones and lifestyle, all of which can affect how our bodies store and burn fat. When diet and exercise don’t do the trick, many are turning to body contouring treatments such as CryoSkin. Now offered at Lucienne Salon Spa Boutique in South Jordan, Utah, CryoSkin can help you achieve your body goals with no downtime or recovery.

What is CryoSkin?

CryoSkin is an innovative body contouring device designed to help patients reduce cellulite, improve the appearance of the skin or target stubborn fat for a slimmer figure in just 30 minutes. CryoSkin uses advanced thermoelectric cooling technology that is monitored in real-time to safely eliminate unwanted fat cells without affecting surrounding tissues. CryoSkin also utilizes the Peltier effect, which allows for precise temperature control and highly personalized treatments. CryoSkin treatments include:

CryoSlimming — Body contouring treatment used to destroy unwanted fat cells in common problem areas such as the stomach, hips and thighs.
CryoToning — Cellulite treatment that uses cold temperatures to improve blood flow, increase oxygen supply and boost collagen production for smoother skin.
CryoFacial — Works similarly to CryoToning, but when applied to the face reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for radiant-looking skin.

At Lucienne Salon Spa Boutique, your CryoSkin treatment will be customized to address your specific areas of concern, whether you want smoother, radiant skin, or a slimmer figure. Based on your aesthetic goals and desired outcome, our dedicated specialists can help you decide which treatment is right for you and craft a personalized plan that meets your needs.

Who is a Good Candidate for CryoSkin?

CryoSkin treatments are ideal for both men and women who have areas of stubborn, unwanted fat that don’t respond to diet or exercise, want to reduce the appearance of cellulite or desire smoother, younger-looking skin. CryoSkin is safe for all skin types, but should be avoided by patients with the following conditions:

  • Raynaud’s syndrome
  • Lymphatic disorders
  • Kidney or liver disease
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Circulatory disorders
  • Skin infections
  • Allergy to cold temperatures (cold urticaria)
  • Inserts or implants in treatment areas

At Lucienne Salon Spa Boutique, we can help determine if you’re a good candidate for CryoSkin during your consultation. During this time, we’ll ask about your medical history, aesthetic goals and any concerns you may have before proceeding with treatment. If CryoSkin is right for you, our specialists will then develop a treatment plan that will help you achieve your desired outcome.

What to Expect During Your CryoSkin Treatment

When you arrive for your CryoSkin appointment, one of our experienced specialists will apply a gel to your skin to protect it and help the device glide smoothly. CryoSkin’s thermal effects are delivered in alternating cycles of warming and cooling and your treatment will begin with a few minutes of heat before rapidly switching to sub-zero temperatures. Not only does the warmth allow fat cells to first rise to the surface for easier targeting, but the stark contrast between the hot and cold temperatures also helps to shock targeted fat cells for even better results. The device reaches temperatures between -8 to -10 degrees celsius, and while you will notice the cooling effect, you will experience little to no discomfort during your treatment. Most patients find the procedure to be comfortable and are able to read or watch TV during their session.

Depending on the size and scope of your treatment area, your session may take between 20 and 40 minutes. Many patients are able to schedule their CryoSkin appointment during their lunch break and immediately return to work afterward. Although you may experience some redness or localized soreness after your treatment, these side effects are minimal and quickly subside. CryoSkin is noninvasive, so you can immediately resume all normal activities without any downtime or recovery.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect?

Some results will be visible immediately after your CryoSkin treatment, which will continue to develop as your body naturally eliminates destroyed fat cells over the next few weeks. Targeted fat cells will be processed and permanently disposed of through the body’s lymphatic system, leaving you with slimmer contours, smoother skin and flattering curves in treated areas. Due to CryoSkin’s revolutionary thermal shock technology, most patients notice dramatic results after just one treatment but may need three to six sessions to achieve their desired results. At Lucienne Salon Spa Boutique, our experienced team will develop an individualized treatment plan designed to help you reach your aesthetic goals.

How Long Will My Results Last?

Once fat cells are eliminated from the body, they cannot regrow or regenerate. This means that your CryoSkin results will be permanent as long as you pursue a healthy lifestyle. Extreme weight fluctuations can affect your results, but any weight gain will be evenly distributed and treated areas will remain slimmer and more contoured than before.
