WHAT IS LOCALIZED CRYOTHERAPY AND ITS BENEFITS?

Localized cryotherapy is an exhilarating service that can reduce inflammation and swelling while stimulating collagen production. Our state-of-the-art device uses drycarbon dioxide vapors, safely and effectively, to lower the skin's surface temperature from 90 degrees Fahrenheit to approximately 45 degrees Fahrenheit as quickly as possible in a specific and targeted area. This action triggers the body's natural reaction that causes the blood vessels in that area to constrict. As soon as the cold source is removed, the body warms the area by expanding the blood vessels, approximately four times their original diameter, and flooding the area with blood that has been enriched with oxygen, hormones, nutrients and activated enzymes. At the same time, by-products and waste are removed from the area via the lymphatic system. When using localized cryotherapy for pain management, benefits can include accelerated healing and recovery from: an injury, inflammatory condition, or simply overuse when used in conjunction with other rehabilitation treatments. Our Certified Cryotherapy Specialists can also use this same device, using specialized attachments and techniques, for esthetic benefits. For example, clear acne, rejuvenate hair growth, tighten and brighten the skin with a cryo facial, and more.

FAQS

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I COME IN FOR A TREATMENT


We wish we could give you a definitive answer, however, the number of sessions and frequency needed will vary based on the individual and their goals. During your first treatment, our CryoSpecialist will chat with you at length about your goals, history, means, and schedule. Together you will develop a plan that works towards achieving your goals without becoming an additional stressor in your life. Balance is key.




WHAT DO I WEAR?


We suggest wearing loose fitting clothing. Depending on the location you'd like to target, we may offer you a robe to change into for better administration of the service.




WHAT TYPE OF ESTHETIC SKIN CONDITIONS ARE SUITED FOR LOCALIZED CRYOTHERAPY?


Our localized cryotherapy device has been shown to slow down the production of skin cells, reduce inflammation and take out the itchiness and soreness related to Psoriasis and Eczema. The stream of cold CO2 has also been shown to alleviate acne by exfoliating the dead cells on the surface of the skin, while the cold reduces the inflammation. Using just the right technique, the prominence of rosacea, stretch marks and other types of scars may also be reduced.




HOW LONG IS A TYPICAL SESSION?


Your initial appointment will be for 30 minutes (45 minutes for a Cryo Facial) whereas follow up sessions will range from 15 minutes to 45 minutes in length depending on treatment type.




HOW DOES LOCALIZED CRYO REJUVENATE HAIR GROWTH?


For patterned baldness or thinning hair, it is suspected that the body has too much "DHT" which results in an overproduction of sebum. The sebum and the hair follicle share the same space, so this increase in sebum production causes the hair follicle to become blocked. Localized cryotherapy has been shown to reduce the production of the oil in the sebum gland and increase in blood flow to the hair follicle. This in turn can allow for an increase in the production of hair. This typically happens 2 weeks after the first session. However, If the hair follicle has been killed, or wasn’t a hair follicle there to begin with, new/increased hair growth is not possible; ex. laser hair removal or skin grafting was performed. Alopecia on the other hand is an auto immune condition where the immune system is attacking the hair follicle and the hair falls out. By reducing the inflammation, calming the immune system and increasing nutrition to the hair follicle via increased blood flow, localized cryotherapy has been shown to increase hair growth.




WHAT ARE THE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS IN PLACE?


Your safety is our highest priority in all that we do! Only a trained and certified cryotherapy specialist can conduct your session. It is the responsibility of the cryotherapy specialist to ensure that you are appropriately prepared, dressed and have the correct settings in place for your session. Our localized cryotherapy device uses CO2, just like a fire extinguisher, and has automatic shut off features if the device is too close to your skin or your skin temperature drops below the appropriate temperature. Additionally, the device can only be used in increments of 30, 60 or 90 seconds. Thereby requiring the cryo specialist to be present, alert and monitoring at all times to continue your service.




IS LOCALIZED CRYOTHERAPY COMPARABLE TO "ICING" AN INJURY?


Yes! Yet it is much more powerful and efficient.




CAN I COMBINE WHOLE BODY CRYO AND LOCALIZED CRYO IN A SINGLE SESSION?


Yes! Using Whole Body Cryotherapy to heal from the inside out and localized cryotherapy to heal from the outside in, is the ultimate combination.




WHAT IS THE AGE REQUIREMENT?


14 years of age with parental consent.




ARE THERE ANY HEALTH CONCERNS TO CONSIDER?


Anyone with the following conditions may not experience localized cryotherapy: History of blood clots Allergy to cold Pregnancy Raynaud’s Syndrome History of cancer Disease of the blood vessels Uncontrolled seizure disorder




DOES IT HURT?


Absolutely not.




BEFORE AND AFTER PICTURES





WHAT IS A CRYO FACIAL?


Our skilled CryoSpecialist will use our localized cryotherapy device to tighten the skin, accelerate circulation and promote oxygen rich blood to the dermis and epidermis which stimulates the production of collagen. Further, the CO2 vapor that is used will gently exfoliate the dead cells on the surface of the skin. Multiple sessions have been linked to firmer skin, visible improvement in skin quality, a reduction in wrinkles and fine lines, as well as a more youthful appearance. Note that collagen and elasticity take time to produce, therefore, a treatment and maintenance plan is always recommended for this service.
