How Does Cryostar® Technology Work?

“How does ‘Cryostar’ work?” This has always been one of our most commonly asked questions on Social Media and initial client consultations.

The answer to that question in one sentence would be: Cryostar® is a revolutionary aesthetic device that uses precision temperature technology through the process of Neocollagenesis.

What is Neocollagenisis?

Neocollagenisis is a process in which new collagen is produced in response to inflammation and is a natural component of the body’s natural wound-healing mechanism.

Inflammation stimulates an increased production of fibroblasts and new collagen deposits, and this process of collagen remodeling leads to an increase in procollagen and matrix metalloproteinase.

With Cryostar® technology, this process works when a trained Cryostar® technician applies a wand directly to the area of the body they would like to treat, after applying a gel to protect the skin. The wand bounces between warm and cold temperatures. The warmest temperatures used are up to 4c and the coldest can be -4c. The range of temperature used is dependent on what area of the body is being treated and the results desired.

Neocollagenesis aids in strengthening the extracellular matrix while increasing the density of the dermis, which in turn creates a sustainable “collagen corset” effect. Additionally, this new production of collagen aids in improving overall skin health, firmness, and toning.

CryoToning® & CryoSlimming®

Both of these treatments use the same Cryostar technology and trigger the neocollagenisis process. However the procedure for each treatment uses different techniques, timeframes and temperatures that produce different outcomes in results.

CryoSlimming® treatments use precise heating and cooling technology applied to targeted areas in a safe, non-invasive and pain-free way. During the treatment, the massage wand is applied using a specialized technique in a localized area, such as the abdomen, thighs, arms, back, chin, or hips to naturally and painlessly shape and tone your body. You will experience a warming sensation followed by a cold massage. This immediate drop in temperature will stimulate the body’s natural processes. Due to the cooling of the skin, you should see a tighter appearance and should continue to see results in the following 14 days. Longer-lasting results can be seen after five treatments, although some clients might require more treatments depending on their body composition and goals.

CryoToning® treatments use cold massage to smooth, lift, and firm skin, reducing the appearance of imperfections and improving the skin’s overall texture. The application of cold temperatures helps to improve tone and smoothness and shape. We typically recommend clients receive a minimum of five CryoToning® treatments for best results. These treatments should be performed once per week for clients with minimal signs of aging + skin laxity, or twice per week for clients with more pronounced signs of aging + greater skin laxity, with a minimum of 48 hours between treatments.


Maintain a Balanced Lifestyle

Cryostar® treatments are best used as a part of an overall health and fitness program, not as a replacement for.

An ideal scenario would be if a client is maintaining a balanced and healthy lifestyle – eating well, taking regular exercise and wanting to focus on a specific area of their body to sculpt or focus on an area of the body.

A big factor to the success of the treatments and getting the results you desire come from a good aftercare routine.
