WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LOCALIZED CRYOTHERAPY?
For many years, people have utilized cold temperatures to address a wide range of health, beauty, and recovery concerns. Cryotherapy (cold therapy) is a safe, comfortable, non-invasive treatment that has been demonstrated to have various benefits, such as:
PAIN RELIEF & RECOVERY
During local cryotherapy, the rapid and controlled cooling of specific areas of the body constricts blood vessels, numbs nerves and reduces inflammation, resulting in decreased pain. This is made possible by the cold temperatures which activate the body’s natural healing processes, including the stimulation of collagen production. Collagen is an important structural protein found in connective tissue and it is used by the body to repair muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments. Additionally, the procedure triggers a response in the nervous system, releasing endorphins, which are natural pain-relieving chemicals in the body. After the treatment, as the body returns to its normal temperature, the blood vessels dilate, increasing blood flow to the area, providing a nutrient-rich, regenerative blood supply that aids in the healing process.

Research indicates that local cryotherapy, which involves exposing a specific area of the body to extremely cold temperatures, can effectively reduce inflammation, itchiness, desensitize nerve endings, and decrease redness. This can lead to improved symptoms of inflammatory conditions such as psoriasis, rosacea, acne, and eczema.

Cryotherapy has gained popularity for its anti-aging benefits. The application of cold temperatures to the neck and face constricts blood vessels, reducing inflammation, puffiness, and pore size. This in turn triggers the skin’s natural repair mechanisms, such as accelerated collagen production, promoting tighter skin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and improving overall appearance of the skin. As the skin returns to its normal temperature, the increases in blood and oxygen flow makes the skin look more vibrant.
