Already a well-known staple in the Cleveland area since 2005 for offering holistic laser therapy, AcuLaser Treatment Centre is thrilled to be the first in Cleveland to introduce Cryoslimming.

“Developed by a leading Italian medical device maker, the Pagani Cryo T-Shock system, or Cryoslimming, is painless, effective and a fraction of the price of other cold-temperature body sculpting services,” says Luciana McCartney, owner of AcuLaser.

After hearing about the innovative treatment from others in the laser therapy community, Luciana traveled to Milan, Italy, where the system is manufactured to research it and see the results firsthand.

“This non-invasive service is popular all over Europe,” she says. “It eliminates fat cells and cellulite, smooths and tightens, lifts and tones. After several treatments, our clients are seeing a noticeable difference.”

In a study conducted by the Journal of American Plastic Surgeons, the average fat loss in targeted areas, after six months of treatments, was 21.5 percent.

“The ideal candidate would be between five to 30 pounds overweight,” she says. “And to achieve optimal results, I recommend multiple sessions.”

A Gentle Glide Away From Eliminating Fat
During Cryoslimming, the client relaxes on a soothing spa treatment bed. Gel is applied to the targeted areas, and a hand-held instrument that resembles an ultrasound implement gently glides over the areas, which can include the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, back and arms. An average treatment takes about 60 minutes.

There are numerous scientific reactions going on, but, in layman’s terms, the device produces temperature shock to the body, alternating very cold, or cryotherapy, with very warm, thermal therapy.

Fat cells are eliminated and leave the body naturally through the lymphatic drainage system. No other tissues are affected.

A little more interesting intel on fat cells…when you lose weight, you do not lose fat cells, they shrink and remain in the body. Even after you lose weight, fat cells are still there to potentially grow again if you gain weight. With Cryoslimming, fat cells are permanently eliminated. Once they’re gone, they’re gone. If a client follows a healthy diet and exercise regimen, the results will last forever.

She reports there is zero downtime or side effects, and clients can squeeze in the service on their lunch hour.

“The perfect follow-up to this treatment is several minutes spent in vibration therapy, standing on our vibration plate, since it kicks the lymphatic drainage system into high gear,” says Luciana.

Luciana McCartney is the first to introduce Pagani Cryo T-Shock system to Northeast Ohio. She trained in Italy.

About Face
“We also offer a Cryo Facial using an instrument that firms the face, reduces pore size, and softens fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating and restoring collagen and elastin, which is the supportive structure underlying skin,” says Luciana. “Plus, the increased oxygenated blood flow helps restore tone and texture, and lends a glowing appearance.”

Along with Beth Murray, a fellow technician who provides Cryoslimming and Cryo Facials, Luciana says they have tried out the treatments themselves and both have noticed a significant improvement in their skin’s appearance.

“For the past 14 years, we’ve been passionate about offering our loyal clients safe and effective paths to look and feel their best that are alternatives to pharmaceutical or surgical intervention,” says Luciana.

“Cryoslimming is the perfect complement to our laser services, which address weight loss, smoking cessation, stress relief and sugar addiction.”
