Body Contouring and Facial questions & answers

How does cryoslimming work?

The treatment lasts for 30-45 minutes and is done manually through a massage technique. The session begins with 4 minutes of heat and then a decrease in temperature to -8 degrees for the duration of the session. The purpose of the treatment is to lower the temperature of the fat cells enough to reduce fat without harming surrounding tissue.

How long do results last?

Wood therapy is most effective as an ongoing treatment, similar to how regular massage therapy works. The more consistent you are with it, the more noticeable and longer-lasting the effects will be. However, the results that you experience will usually stick around for about three months after your last session

What are the benefits of Cryocontour?

The benefits are measurable fat loss and improved skin appearance. As with most techniques, the results vary from one individual to another. The expected effect is usually rapid, results should be visible immediately and many people continue to see improvements over a 2 to 3 week period.

What should I do before and after every treatment?

For best results following a CryoContour session, do not eat sugar 2 hours before and after the session. This applies to all kinds of sugars-- fruit, pasta, rice, bread, cereals, etc-- and simple starches. the cold weakens and retracts the adipocyte-- the fat storage cell. Consuming sugar will return immediate energy to these cells, so the apoptosis (cell death) effect will be less efficient and can even be canceled. Avoid exercise directly before a session. It will be harder to cool the body down and complete the slimming effectively.

Where do the fat cells go?

Your body absorbs the fat and it passes through the liver and comes out as waste. The fat cells are broken down but the cells have the capacity to grow again with a high calorie diet. Thus, it is recommended to pair the treatment with one of Executive Medical’s weight loss programs.

How long until I see results?

Most people will have a noticeable reduction in their measurements after the very first treatment! The fat removal process continues for up to one week following treatment, so it may decrease further a few days afterwards. Note that results may vary due to differences in metabolisms.
