A common question we get here at CryoStudio Sarasota, is “How is Cryoskin different from CoolSculpting?” Both treatments use a “fat-freezing” method called cryolipolysis to destroy fat cells. The main differences are: how the treatment is applied to your body, the price and the comfort level of the client.
The CoolSculpting device has applicators that look similar to the nozzle of a vacuum cleaner, and when applied to the targeted area, administer suction and cooling. This process can take 1-3 hours and can be very painful, often causing feelings of pulling and pinching during the treatment. Some of the side effects include, redness, bruising, sensitive skin, stretched skin, numbness, and skin deformation. This treatment produces something called “the CoolSculpting butter stick” (that is what is pictured in our comparison photo). Results can be visible and measurable in 3-4 months, requiring multiple sessions to achieve this.
Cryoskin is faster, more effective and more customizable, and it’s important to note that it costs at least 50% less than CoolSculpting. The device uses a wand that glides over the targeted areas and is quick, painless and offers measurable results after just one treatment. Treatments take anywhere from 20 to 34 minutes.
The Cryoskin machine not only performs slimming treatments to freeze and destroy fat cells, but does toning treatments and facials as well that lift the skin to tighten, smooth and shape the skin and reduce cellulite by increasing elastin and collagen production. These sessions also address loose or sagging skin from normal aging or weight loss, fine lines, wrinkles and crepey skin. Facials can also help to restore youthful volume, reduce inflammation caused by a number of skin disorders and help to shrink oversized pores. Toning of women’s neck/cleavage area tightens skin and promotes collagen production. The fresh supply of collagen keeps the neck and cleavage looking smooth and youthful. You can even reduce the appearance of a double chin in just 14 minutes.
A popular treatment is the Brazilian Butt Lift - a 10 series of alternating slimming and toning treatments to accentuate the butt and slim the upper thighs and back of the legs. Cryoskin is not just for people looking to lose inches, but also for those wanting to tone and sculpt for a photo shoot, wedding or other important life events.
