What is Cryotherapy
Cryotherapy treatment involves exposure to cold air. The liquid nitrogen does not come into contact with your body. It is used to cool the air before entering the chamber. Temperature ranges are from -156 degrees Celsius to -196 degrees Celsius. Targeted Cryotherapy skin is cooled not frozen. Several different Cryotherapy treatments are available, targeting specific parts of the body for pain relief, full body treatments for fat loss, and even facials.
As your body feels the sudden drop in heat, emergency signals are sent to the brain, reducing the blood flow to the area being treated. As the treatment stops, the body naturally begins to warm, sending blood to the treated area. This blood is more oxygenated, helping the body reduce the build-up of toxins in the affected area.
After the therapy, the body’s metabolic rate will increase, for a period of 5 – 8 hours after the treatment, aiding in fat loss and muscle recovery.
Targeted cryogenic treatment is effective in providing pain relief. This can be used in athletes to prevent inflammation and muscular soreness, or as a pain management treatment for people suffering from conditions such as arthritis.
At CRYO1 we also offer cryo facials; the outer skin is briefly frozen, which activates an increased production of collagen in deeper layers of the skin. This helps reduce blemishes and wrinkles, giving your skin a clearer, tighter appearance and helps reduce pore size and toxin intake. This can also help with skin conditions, like eczema and psoriasis.
