What is Cryo T-Shock?
The Cryo T-Shock by Pagani has been in premium spas throughout Europe and we are proud to be the first in Kansas to offer the the Cryo T-Shock. Cryo T-Shock is the most innovative and versatile anti-aging device on the market to treat localized fat, to reduce cellulite, and to tone and tighten the skin. It uses state-of-the-art thermography and cryotherapy (thermal shock) to reshape the body. This is the first cost effective body contouring solution and won the Most Innovative Device at the Gicare 2014 International Expo in Paris.
What are the benefits?

Stimulates collagen and elastin
Speeds up cellular activities and repair
Reduces pain and inflammation
Improves blood circulation
Is it safe?
Yes, it is safe. It is a non-invasive treatment of adipose tissue to induce lipolysis – the breaking down of fat cells – to reduce body fat without damage to other tissues. It consists of a special developed technique where warm and cold are used and applied directly to the client’s skin.
How does it work?
Cryo T-Shock uses the technology of Peltier cells by safely and quickly generating heat followed by transdermal cryotherapy. The 20-20-minute session starts with a warming phase followed by sudden cooling. Temperatures are pleasant and not painful.
Skin and fatty tissue are subjected to triple thermal shock (heat-cold-heat) which optimizes the results. The heat influences triglycerides by making them unstable and therefore attacks the contents. Adipose cells or adipocytes (fat cells) are particularly sensitive to heat and cold and this very important variation in temperature allows for a more efficient and faster elimination of adipocytes by modifying their crystallization. The cold accelerates the apoptosis (a natural controlled cell death) of the adipocytes. The synergy of the thermal shock leads the destruction of fat cells. The adipocytes cannot survive the cold temperatures and some adipocytes are even eliminated directly during the session. The rest will be eliminated gradually over a few days or weeks.
This technique leads to a reduction of fat mass in a targeted area and is not a weight loss solution. holding the deposits together. Repeated remedies will slowly take away upper layers of fat. The cells which have been destroyed are pulled into the bloodstream and are subsequently naturally disposed through the lymphatic system.
Cryo T-Shock is the ultimate anti-aging treatment by eliminating unwanted fat cells, reducing cellulite and toning and tightening the skin.
Where can I do the treatment?
CryoSlimming: stomach, love handles, under arms, bra-line, glutes, double chin, inner or outer thighs
CryoToning: face, arms, legs, stomach
How often can it be done?
The CryoSlimming treatments can be performed once every 2 weeks and the CryoToning can be performed once per week. There is a physiological reason for this: CryoSlimming causes apoptosis and when this occurs and fat cells die, waste is formed. This will be eliminated through the blood and lymphatic system. The waste will eventually be eliminated through the kidneys and waiting every two weeks ensures that the lymphatic system and kidneys are not overloaded.
The CryoSlimming results may be comprised by the natural waste cycle and risk of clogging of the pathways if the treatment is done less than every 14 days. This does not represent a significant risk but could compromise the results.
What does the session feel like?
The 20-30 treatments are executed manually through a slow massage over the selected area of the body. Each session will begin with cleaning the skin followed by a light gel application. The session will then start with heat followed by cold.
It is a non-invasive and painless treatment that feels like a light massage.
Are there any side effects?
There are generally no side effects apart from an increased urination over several days following the treatment.
In minimal cases there were the following side effects:
Localized redness that disappears after a few hours and in rare cases there is local pain that does not exceed 2 to 3 hours.
There may be soome itching without consequences and is often due to the reaction of certain cosmetic procedures used by clients; to avoid the chances do not use anything before coming in for treatment.
Some experience delayed onset muscle soreness from treatments on the stomach due to unintentionally engaging the abdominals, which disappear later that same day.
How does this compare to other cold sculpting treatments?
This is very affordable, noninvasive and painless process that requires no anesthesia, has no risk of scarring or neuropathy, and only requires 10-30 minutes.
Other methods of fat removal primarily involve a necrotic cell death by damaging fat with heat, high-intensity focused ultrasound or chemical injections. Each of these approaches pose a potential technical challenge, particularly with respect to targeting the right adipose tissue depth and unintended damage to other structures close or within the fat layer.
Can I do anything to enhance the treatment?
Yes, implementing a healthy lifestyle, good diet and increasing blood flow after the treatments. Adding massage compression like NormaTec and whole body cryotherapy is recommended to enhance the results.
When can I see results?
CryoSlimming may require 3-5 sessions over several weeks and months to see the best results. CryoSlimming sessions are done once every 2 weeks as to allow for proper lymphatic drainage.
CryoToning results are more immediate and also may require multiple sessions to achieve optimal results.
How long do results last?
Depending on the individual and depending on their lifestyle, the results last several months to several years.
It is advisable to continue 2-3 sessions once every 6 months to maintain the results.
Are there any contraindications?
- Severe Raynaud’s Syndrome
- Very poor circulation
- Severe Diabetes
How does it help with cellulite?
Cellulite is caused by subcutaneous deposits of fat primarily in the legs and glutes. The CryoToning uses below zero temperatures that penetrate below the skin. The Cryo T Shock triggers the fluids that bind the fat cells together to crystalize. This crystallization destroys the fat cells and the bonds holding the deposits together.
Repeated sessions will slowly take away the upper layers of fat. The cells which have been destroyed enter the blood stream after which they are disposed of via the lymphatic system.
