Cryotherapy Q & A
What is cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy is the use of freezing temperatures to destroy fat cells and stimulate collagen production. Dr. Allingham offers several cryotherapy options to help you get rid of unwanted fat and improve the appearance of your skin on your face and body.
Cryoskin 3.0 is a cutting-edge procedure that Dr. Allingham can adjust to tone the skin on your face, destroy pockets of stubborn fat, and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Cryoskin is noninvasive, and the applicator device delivers precisely controlled temperatures to your skin to ensure your comfort and safety.
Cryolipolysis is the use of extremely cold temperatures to freeze and destroy your unwanted fat cells. At Cryo Body Doc, Dr. Allingham uses CoolSculpting equipment to help your body remove stubborn bulges of fat on your abdomen, sides, thighs, arms, and chin.
Who is a good candidate for cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy is suitable for almost everyone who wants to get rid of fat or tighten their skin. Cryolipolisis is a fat-removal treatment that is most effective on small pockets of stubborn fat when you’re close to your target body weight.
If you’re overweight, Dr. Allingham offers customized weight-loss programs to help you achieve your goals. If you’re in good health but are frustrated by your muffin top or a bulging belly, schedule a consultation with Dr. Allingham today to learn about the cryotherapy options available to help you reach your goals.
What happens during a cryotherapy treatment?
If you have cryotherapy to get rid of stubborn fat, you can expect to spend 30-60 minutes at Cryo Body Doc for your treatment. During your cryotherapy 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 either attaches a CoolSculpting applicator or manually guides the Cryoskin 3 device over your trouble spot. After Dr. Allingham begins your treatment, your skin will get cold, and you might notice a mild suction on your skin. After 5-10 minutes, most patients go numb.
