Apoptosis is the natural process of programmed cell death. It’s something our bodies do naturally, allowing them to balance out old and new cells, and remove any unwanted cells, for example, the body would try to remove any pre-cancerous cells via the process of Apoptosis.
The Apoptosis process happens with fat cells when they are exposed to controlled thermal reduction. It is the cold temperatures that encourage the process of Apoptosis to begin in fat cells.
With Cryostar technology via cryostarbeauty.com, 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.
Once the temperature is reduced, the fat cells can no longer sustain life. As fat cells are more susceptible to cold temperatures than other cells, fat freezing activates Apoptosis in the fat cells only, achieving the desired result without causing any collateral damage to the skin or other cells.
