What is it?

Here at Aurum Wellbeing, we have several types of devices to treat body fat and the signs of aging. Among them is the Cryoskin®.

Cryoskin® is based on cryolipolysis, a non-invasive treatment that uses cooling technology to provide various benefits to the body. In short, it uses a device that applies cold to the area to be treated.

This treatment has proven to be effective in reducing localized fat in specific areas of the body. It uses controlled exposure to cold to freeze and destroy fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissues.

However, it should be noted that the results of cryolipolysis may vary depending on the individual and the area treated. Some people may experience more noticeable fat reduction than others, and multiple sessions may be necessary to achieve the desired results.

This treatment has been the subject of numerous studies, considered a safe and effective option for the reduction of localized body fat in specific areas of the body.


Body fat is a form of adipose tissue. It is an essential component for the proper functioning of the body. Body fat has several important functions, such as energy storage, regulation of body temperature and protection of vital organs.

Adipose tissue is distributed throughout the body, but is concentrated in different areas. The percentage varies according to gender, age, genetics and the level of physical activity of each individual. Maintaining a healthy balance of fat in the body is critical to promoting overall wellness.

The accumulation of fat in the body can be influenced by several factors:

  • Consuming excess calories: by consuming more calories than your body needs to maintain its daily functions, those extra calories are stored as fat.
  • Hormonal imbalance: Hormonal imbalances can affect metabolism and the way the body stores and burns fat.
  • Genetics: Some people may have a greater genetic predisposition to accumulate fat in certain areas.
  • Sedentary lifestyle: Lack of physical activity and sedentary lifestyle can contribute to fat accumulation, as it does not burn calories and therefore also contributes to weight gain.
  • Emotional factors and stress: Psychological factors can influence our diet, eating habits change as we turn to food.

Cryoslim® Body fat reduction

CryoSlim® is a function based on controlled cold. This causes a reaction in the body, which helps to destroy the fat cells without damaging the other tissues in the area. This body fat is then naturally eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system.

Lasers in Surgery and Medicine in 2009 obtained data on the effectiveness of the treatment. He concluded that cryolipolysis resulted in a reduction in subcutaneous fat thickness of up to 25% in the treated area.

In the application of the device, controlled cold temperatures are applied through a process of repeated cooling and heating.

  • First heat application: The first step in the treatment is a heat application, which prepares the skin and stimulates blood flow.
  • Cooling effect: The controlled cooling during the Cryoslim® session has several effects on the body. First, the cold induces vasoconstriction, which reduces blood flow to the treated area. This can help slow the metabolism of fat cells and make them more susceptible to being eliminated.
  • Second heat application: After a cooling period, heat is applied to the same treated area to generate a vasodilation effect. This helps eliminate waste and destroyed fat cells through the lymphatic system.

The number of Cryoslim® sessions required may vary depending on the individual target and the area to be treated. Generally, a series of sessions is recommended to achieve the best results. Results may include fat reduction, improved skin tone and a more contoured appearance.

Cryoskin®, to treat orange peel skin

Orange peel skin, also known as Adiposis edematosa, affects the appearance of the skin, especially in areas such as the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen.

This body fat is characterized by the formation of dimples, bumps or irregularities on the surface of the skin, which is why it is similar to the appearance of orange peel skin.

All this is due to a combination of factors:

  • Subcutaneous fat accumulation: Subcutaneous fat accumulates and pushes up against the connective tissues of the skin. This can create visible bulges or bumps on the surface of the skin.
  • Weak connective tissues: Connective tissues, such as collagen and elastin, provide support and structure to the skin. If these tissues are weakened, they can allow subcutaneous fat to bulge and cause the appearance of orange peel skin.
  • Compromised blood and lymphatic circulation: Poor blood and lymphatic circulation can contribute to the accumulation of fluids and toxins in the tissues, which can aggravate the appearance of the skin.
  • Hormones: Hormonal changes, such as those occurring during puberty, pregnancy or menopause, may also influence their appearance.
  • Genetic factors: There is a genetic predisposition, which means that some people may be more likely to develop it due to hereditary factors.

Cryo Cellullite

Cryo Cellulite is a specific Cryoskin® treatment that focuses on treating orange peel skin. Controlled cooling stimulates blood circulation in the treated area, which triggers collagen production. This can help improve skin elasticity and promote a smoother, more toned appearance.

In this case, subcutaneous fat accumulating and pushing body fat against the connective tissues of the skin, this exposure to cold causes vasoconstriction, followed by vasodilatation. This process stimulates vascular remodeling and increases the perfusion of oxygen and nutrients in the tissues, favoring collagen production.

Likewise, to obtain a better result, it can be combined with other treatments such as radiofrequency. Electromagnetic energy to heat the deep tissues of the skin, thus stimulating the production of collagen and improving the appearance of orange peel skin. Here at Aurum Wellbeing we make use of radiofrequency thanks to our INDIBA® equipment. Deep tissue massages are also very useful, as they can help break up fat accumulations and improve circulation.

It is important to remember that the results and effectiveness of treatments may vary depending on the duration and frequency of treatment, as well as the individual’s body fat, metabolism and level of orange peel skin.

Cryoskin®, to treat the signs of the face

Cryo Double Chin

Cryoskin®, to treat the signs of the face

It is characterized by the presence of a visible crease or lump in that area, which can affect facial appearance and jaw contour definition.

Double chin can have different causes, among which are included:

  • Fat accumulation: Excess fat in the submental area may be due to factors such as being overweight, genetics, aging or an unhealthy diet.
  • Skin sagging: Over time, the skin may lose elasticity and become more lax, which can contribute to the appearance of double chin.
  • Incorrect posture: Poor posture, such as frequently holding the head forward or slouching, can put additional pressure on the neck muscles and contribute to the formation of double chin.

Cryo Double Chin. This procedure uses controlled cooling technology to reduce body fat, specifically facial fat, and improve the appearance of the area under the chin.

During the session, a Cryoskin® device is used to apply localized cooling to the jowl area. The controlled cooling helps to lower the temperature of the fat cells in that area, which can lead to the gradual elimination of fat cells and a reduction in jowl volume.


Cryolift is a facial aesthetic treatment. It uses Cryoskin cooling technology designed specifically for facial treatment.

During a Cryolift session, the therapist uses the device to apply controlled cooling to different areas of the face, such as the forehead, cheeks, chin and neck. Controlled cooling can help improve blood circulation, stimulate collagen and elastin production, and improve the overall appearance of the skin.

Cryolift results can include firmer, toned and rejuvenated skin, as well as a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

It is important to note that results may vary from person to person, and a series of sessions is recommended for best results. Each Cryolift session usually lasts approximately 20 to 30 minutes.

Cryoskin®, For firming

Skin sagging is a natural process that occurs with aging and is influenced by several factors. It is important to keep in mind that skin sagging is a natural process of aging and cannot be completely avoided.

Some of the reasons why the skin may become flaccid are:

  • Loss of collagen and elastin: Collagen and elastin are proteins that provide structure and elasticity to the skin. Over time, the production of collagen and elastin decreases, leading to a loss of firmness and elasticity in the skin.
  • Subcutaneous fat reduction: Subcutaneous fat acts as a cushion under the skin and helps maintain its smooth appearance. With aging, it is common for a decrease in the amount of subcutaneous fat to occur, which can contribute to sagging.
  • Genetic factors: Genetics play an important role in skin quality and firmness. Some people have a genetic predisposition to have skin that is more prone to sagging.
  • Sun exposure: Prolonged exposure to the sun without sunscreen can damage collagen and elastin fibers in the skin, which can accelerate the sagging process.
  • Changes in body weight: Rapid changes in weight, either loss or gain, can stretch the skin and cause it to lose its natural elasticity.
  • Lifestyle and environmental factors: Factors such as smoking, poor diet, lack of physical activity, stress and exposure to pollution can also contribute to sagging skin.


Cryoskin® is also used for skin tightening, especially in areas such as the face, neck, arms and legs. The controlled cooling provided by Cryoskin® stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, two key components in maintaining skin firmness and elasticity.

By applying the Cryotone® treatment to these areas, the cold stimulates blood and lymphatic circulation, which can improve the appearance of the skin, reduce sagging and tone the skin. In addition, the cooling can also help to contract the tissues, which can give a feeling of tightness and firmness to the treated skin.

It is important to keep in mind that results may vary according to each individual and the initial condition of the skin. To obtain the best results in skin tightening with Cryoskin®, it is recommended to perform a series of sessions, which may vary depending on individual needs and the practitioner’s recommendations.

Scientific procedure

Cryoskin® performs the function of cryolipolysis, which is a procedure used in aesthetic treatments for the reduction of localized body fat. The pioneering study on cryolipolysis was developed by researchers at Harvard Medical School in the United States, a study led by Dr. Dieter Manstein and Dr. R. Rox Anderson, in the 2000s.

The cryolipolysis procedure is based on the concept that fat cells (adipocytes) are more sensitive to cold than other surrounding tissues. During treatment, a specialized device is applied to the target area. This device uses suction to selectively remove and cool the fat cells to near freezing temperatures, around -10 to -12 degrees Celsius.

Controlled and prolonged cooling causes damage to fat cells, while surrounding tissues such as skin, muscles and nerves remain unscathed due to their increased resistance to cold.

Fat cells undergoing cryolipolysis undergo a process called apoptosis, in which they are gradually broken down and eliminated from the body naturally through the lymphatic system and metabolism.

After treatment, the damaged body fat is gradually removed some time later, leading to a reduction of body fat in the treated area. Final results are usually seen after several weeks, and a noticeable decrease in fat in the treated area can be achieved.


How to achieve a better result?

To maximize the results of cryolipolysis, it can be combined with other treatments or complementary approaches.

  • Lymphatic drainage massage: After cryolipolysis, a manual or mechanical lymphatic drainage massage can be performed on the treated area. This can help stimulate the lymphatic system and accelerate the elimination of damaged fat cells.
  • Radiofrequency: Radiofrequency is a treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deep tissues of the skin. By stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, as well as promoting tightness and firmness in the treated area.
  • LED light therapy: LED light therapy uses different wavelengths of light to stimulate cellular activity and promote tissue regeneration. It can be helpful in improving skin quality, reducing inflammation and accelerating the healing process after cryolipolysis.
  • Ultrasound: Ultrasound treatments, such as ultrasonic cavitation, can help break up fat cells and facilitate their removal after cryolipolysis.
  • Shockwave treatments: Shockwaves are high-energy acoustic waves. They have been shown to improve blood circulation, stimulate collagen production and promote fat removal.
  • Laser treatments: Some laser treatments, such as lipolaser, can complement the results of cryolipolysis by helping to eliminate the treated fat cells and improve the appearance of the skin.
  • Healthy lifestyle: Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is essential. This involves eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly and maintaining healthy lifestyle habits in general.

Recommended lifestyle

In addition to combining aesthetic treatments and procedures, adopting a healthy lifestyle can help optimize the results of cryolipolysis.

  • Balanced diet: Opt for a diet rich in nutritious foods, such as fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains and healthy fats. Limit intake of processed foods, refined sugars and saturated fats. Following a balanced diet can help keep excess body fat at bay and achieve a healthy weight and improve the results of cryolipolysis.
  • Adequate hydration: Drink enough water to keep your body well hydrated. Adequate hydration is essential for skin health and optimal functioning of the body in general.
  • Adequate hydration: Drink enough water to keep your body well hydrated. Adequate hydration is essential for skin health and optimal functioning of the body in general.
  • Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol: Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can have a negative impact on skin health and the fat removal process. Try to reduce or eliminate these substances to improve cryolipolysis results.
  • Adequate rest: Get enough sleep and make sure you get quality rest. During sleep, the body recovers and regenerates, which contributes to healthier skin and above all to the optimal functioning of the metabolism.
  • Stress reduction: Chronic stress can negatively affect overall health and skin appearance. Look for ways to reduce stress in your life, such as practicing relaxation techniques, meditation or activities you enjoy.


Recommendations before undergoing the procedure

It is always important to follow some recommendations to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the procedure.

  • Do not expose yourself to intense sun exposure: Avoid intense sunbathing on the areas that will undergo treatment for at least two weeks prior to treatment. Sun exposure may increase the risk of complications such as hyperpigmentation or burns on the treated skin.
  • Do not apply creams or lotions to the area to be treated: Avoid applying topical products such as creams, lotions or oils to the area to be treated prior to the procedure. These products may interfere with the cooling ability of the machine and reduce its effectiveness.
  • No hair removal in the area to be treated: Avoid waxing, tweezing or any other method of hair removal.
  • Do not perform aggressive skin treatments: Avoid subjecting the skin to aggressive treatments such as chemical peels, lasers or deep peels on the areas to be treated. These treatments can sensitize the skin and increase the risk of irritation or damage during the procedure.
  • Alcohol: It is recommended to avoid alcohol consumption at least 24 hours prior to cryolipolysis treatment. Alcohol can dilate blood vessels and increase the risk of bruising or bleeding during the procedure.
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs): Medications such as ibuprofen, naproxen and aspirin have anticoagulant properties and may increase the risk of bruising or bleeding. It is recommended that NSAIDs be avoided at least 24 hours prior to treatment.
  • Foods with diuretic properties: Diuretic foods, such as coffee, green tea and beverages with high caffeine content, can increase urine output and fluid elimination from the body. This could affect the water balance during cryolipolysis treatment.
  • Foods high in sodium: Foods high in sodium can cause fluid retention in the body, which could affect the results of cryolipolysis.
  • Inflammatory foods: Some foods can trigger an inflammatory response in the body. It is suggested to avoid processed foods, refined sugars, saturated fats and fried foods.

When is it not good to have Cryoskin®?

Cryolipolysis is generally a safe procedure, as it only targets body fat, but there are some medical conditions that may contraindicate its performance.

  • Skin diseases: If you have open wounds, burns, eczema, dermatitis or other skin conditions in the area to be treated.
  • Presence of protrusion: This implies a weakness or an opening in the muscle wall of the affected area, the treatment could have an impact on the herniated area.
  • Cryoglobulinemia: This is a condition in which certain proteins in the blood solidify at cold temperatures.
  • Cold illnesses: Some people may have an increased sensitivity to cold or extreme temperatures due to conditions such as cold urticaria or Raynaud’s disease.
  • Liver disease: Cryolipolysis may affect liver function, so caution is advised in people with liver disease or who are at increased risk for liver problems.
  • Pregnancy and lactation: Cryolipolysis is not recommended during pregnancy or lactation due to lack of safety data at these stages.

It is important to keep in mind that this information is general and it is always advisable to consult a physician or specialist before undergoing any cosmetic treatment.
