Cryotherapy

Experience the cutting-edge technology of True Cryo-Stimulation, where targeted cooling transforms your body's potential in seconds.

What is True Cryo-Stimulation?

The technology allows a localised area of skin (the abdomen, a thigh, shoulder etc.) to be cooled quickly from around 35oC/95oF to 4oC/39oF in less than 30 seconds, using a targeted spray of cold vapour. This temperature shock causes blood vessels in the underlying tissue to constrict (vasoconstriction) as a way of protecting the body’s core temperature.

How does it work?

As soon as the cold source is removed, the body warms the area quickly by expanding the blood vessels to around 4 times their original diameter (vasodilation). A rush of freshly oxygenated blood saturates the tissue, bringing with it, hormones, neurotransmitters, and nutrients. At the same time, unwanted by-products and waste produced from natural body processes are removed from the area to be processed by the lymphatic system.

The effect is for the localized tissue to receive all it needs to rejuvenate and restore its optimal functions:

  • Injured muscle tissue is relieved of inflammation (at the optimum time as some inflammation is useful in the healing process) and fed with all the goodness and nutrients they need to recover faster.
  • Aging and thinning skin is able to repair the basal cell layer to restore the supply of collagen, elastin and hydration to regain a smoother, tighter appearance.
  • Fat tissue breaks down and is eliminated from the body, while other surrounding tissues are not damaged.

Treatments

The extensive range of treatments appeals to many different clients of all ages, shapes and sizes:

Cryo Body-Sculpting

Also known as cryo-lipolysis and “fat freezing”. The skin’s surface is painlessly cooled to 0-4°C (39°F) in seconds, permanently destroying underlying fat cells (apoptosis) which are then digested by the body’s waste management system without damaging any other tissue. Clients often see an instant ‘inch-loss’ leaving them ecstatic and returning for more treatments. Full abdominal sculpting takes 6-8 minutes and can continue for up to 6-months.

Cryo-Facials

Smooth out fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, nose, mouth and neck. Stimulation of the basal cells in the skin rejuvenates the production of collagens, elastin and hydration in the epidermis, smoothing, filling out and invigorating the skin. Facial treatments take from 30 seconds to 2 minutes.

Skin Tightening

Increased production of elastin and collagens in the skin pulls ageing and loose skin tighter.

 

Cellulite Smoothing

Cellulite is reduced through a combination of apoptosis and increased collagen production. This has a plumping effect, smoothing the skin and reducing the appearance of cellulite.

Psoriasis and Eczema

Treat the symptoms and signs of these autoimmune conditions. Redness, dryness, itchiness and pain can all be significantly reduced without any side effects.

Massage

The cold compress attachments are ideal for use as a massage compress. At -40°C (-40°F), the cool compresses provide a soothing and effective therapeutic modality for relaxing and softening tight muscles.

 

Mood and Energy Boost

Applying cold vapour to the scalp and areas of the spine stimulates the vagus nerve – part of the body’s “rest and digest” system. Vagus nerve stimulation has proven benefits for depression and mental wellbeing. Clients often report euphoria as well as feeling more awake and energized.
