CryoSkin Q & A
What is CryoSkin?
CryoSkin is an FDA-cleared, noninvasive body-sculpting procedure that uses cryolipolysis to help you get rid of stubborn pockets of unwanted body fat. CryoSkin uses innovative technology to freeze your subdermal fat – without harming your skin – which damages the cells so your body can process and remove them with other waste products. Dr. Allingham uses CryoSkin on a variety of trouble spots, including your:
- Sides, including muffin tops and love handles
- Inner and outer thighs
- Upper arms
- Double chin
CryoSkin treatments are safe and effective. In clinical studies, it has been shown to remove 20-25%* of the targeted fat cells.
How does CryoSkin work?
Dr. Alllingham uses the CryoSkin equipment to deliver controlled cooling to freeze your unwanted fat cells. Your fat crystalizes when it’s frozen, which kills the fat cells. Then over the weeks following your CryoSkin treatment, your body processes and removes the dead fat cells, leaving you with a more slim and toned appearance.
Who is a good candidate for CryoSkin?
If you’re in good health and close to your desired body weight, but struggling to remove belly fat, tone your stomach or other trouble spots on your body, you are probably an excellent candidate for CryoSkin treatments. CryoSkin is designed to get rid of unwanted pockets of fat. It’s not a weight-loss procedure.
Dr. Allingham provides consultations before recommending CryoSkin body fat-removal procedures. In addition to performing a physical exam, he explains the treatment in detail and can answer any questions you have about how it works and what to expect.
What should I expect during a CryoSkin treatment?
During your CryoSkin procedure, you relax in a comfortable treatment chair. Dr. Allingham applies a gel pad to the part of your body you want to target and attaches the CryoSkin applicator device. After Dr. Allingham turns on the CryoSkin device, your skin will get cold, and you might notice a mild suction on your skin. After five to 10 minutes, most patients go numb.
Depending on your needs, your session may take 35-60 minutes. CryoSkin is usually well tolerated. You can read, work on a laptop computer, or even nap during your treatment. The procedure is noninvasive, and you don’t need to take any time off to recover when your treatment is complete.
