Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is The Cryo Star T-Shock Safe?

    The device is very safe. In terms of programming and electronics, it is managed by a computerized Windows system. The cooling system is controlled by an electronic temperature sensor located in the processing head of the device and the temperature is controlled in real time by the machine and figures displayed on the screen. Pagani created the Cryo T Shock five years ago and has sold hundreds of units throughout Europe.

  • How Does It Feel?

    The treatment is painless, with some clients describing it as rather pleasant. This is due to the massage technique and the session beginning with skin warming descending into the gradual decrease of temperature.

  • How Does It Work?

    The body contouring treatments last for roughly 60 minutes and are done manually employing a massage technique. The purpose of the treatment is to lower the temperature of the fat cells enough to cause what is known as the phenomenon of apoptosis. This phenomenon is triggered when the temperature of the fat tissue is between 12ºC and 17ºC which causes these cells to die. The cells are then naturally passed through the body’s lymphatic system and excreted through sweat and urine.

  • Possible Side Effects

    There are generally no side effects apart from the amount you urinate will increase slightly over the 3 days following the treatment along with the appearance of your urine in color. Any localized redness will disappear after a few hours. In rare cases when localized pain may occur but will dissipate within 2-3 hours. Itching may occur however this is generally due to the reaction of certain cosmetic products used by clients.

  • Who Should Consider This Treatment

    Anyone who is looking to lose weight, reduce cellulite, tighten saggy skin or treat stubborn areas of fat they are looking to remove.

  • What Are The Benefits

    Clinical studies have shown that this technology naturally destroys fat cells, but as with most techniques, the results vary from one individual to another. The expected effect is usually rapid: part of the fat cells are destroyed during the session while most will be eliminated within 2 to 3 weeks. It has also been proven to help with micro circulation and a significant increase in collagen due to the thermal shock that is caused by the hot and cold.

  • Contraindications

    Anyone with the conditions below should not do this treatment:

    • Kidney disease or dialysis
    • Pregnant women
    • Severe diabetes
    • Undergoing chemotherapy

  • Maximum Number of Areas That Can Be Treated Simultaneously

    Two. Consisting of one large and one small. Again, not to overload the body’s pathways. There is also the strong internal cooling of the tissues and the treating of more zones at the same time could cause in extreme cases hypothermia and fatigue.

  • What is the difference between Star T-shock and Cool Sculpting

    Cryo T-Shock is more affordable & less painful than CoolSculpting. Unlike liposuction, it requires no anesthesia, has no risk of scarring or neuropathy, and has no downtime. Other methods of fat removal primarily involve a necrotic cell death by damaging fat with extreme cold, heat, high-intensity focused ultrasound or chemical injections. Each of these approaches have potential complications, particularly with respect to targeting the right adipose tissue depth and unintended damage to other tissues close or within the fat layer.
