WHAT IS THE LYMPHATIC SYSTEM?
The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that help rid the body of toxins, waste, and other unwanted materials. Lymph is a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells. The lymphatic system is responsible for transporting this fluid throughout the body using the body's movement, breath, intestinal activity, and muscle, pushing toxins out of the body.
The lymphatic system removes toxins through:
- Bowel movements
The lymphatic system interacts with:
The cardiovascular system
Lymphatic vessels return body fluids to the blood after killing foreign organisms. They also control the body's fluid balance.
The immune system
The lymphatic system plays an integral role in the immune functions of the body and is the first line of defense against disease. Immune cells are also produced by the lymphatic system.
The digestive system
The lymphatic system absorbs fat and fat-soluble vitamins from the digestive system and transports these dietary lipids to the circulatory system.
CRYOSKIN + THE LYMPHATIC SYSTEM
Using knowledge of the lymphatic system, Cryoskin is able to target fat cells using your body's natural systems. This is done by triggering apoptosis, and relying on the Peltier Effect.
Apoptosis, also referred to as "programmed cell death" is a process which naturally occurs in the body all the time. Cold temperatures, when applied to fat cells, trigger apoptosis. Cryoskin is able to induce apoptosis to target fat cells and eliminate body fat.
The Peltier Effect
The Peltier Effect gives Cryoskin precise temperature control, creating the perfect conditions to reduce fat without damaging the surrounding tissue. The body calls on the lymphatic system to send macrophages (large white blood cells) to come and 'eat up' the fat debris after the cold temperature has destroyed the fat cell.
Some fat loss treatments can actually damage your skin. Cryoskin is completely non-invasive and uses since that works with your body's natural systems. That's why your Cryoskin sessions will be every 2 weeks, to ensure that your lymphatic system has time to recover between sessions.
