Cryotherapy is the science of exposing the body to sub-zero temperatures in order to stimulate physical and mental health benefits. It reduces inflammation in the body by boosting an anti-inflammatory chemical.
Cryotherapy also boosts blood circulation throughout the body which results in a higher metabolic and caloric burn rate. The treatment also increases the level of endorphins which can elevate mood and reduce stress.
In terms of beauty benefits, cryotherapy increases collagen production, which in turn tightens the skin, and brings forth a youthful glow.
Localised cryotherapy is the application of cryogenically cooled air to specific parts of the body. It can be used for two main categories:
Beauty treatments such as Cryo Facials or Cellulite reduction use localised cryotherapy technology. The facials increase the collagen production in the skin and leaves the skin visibly smoother with a restored youthful glow.
Localised cryotherapy can also be used to alleviate pain, inflammation and speed up recovery from injuries through cryogenically cooled air penetrating deeper into the layers of tissue and increasing blood circulation.
Using cold temperatures in treating pain and inflammation dates as far back as 2500BC. A science that has been long tested to deliver results to blood circulation and the central nervous system is now made easily accessible with our CRYO Penguin, a modern device that treats localized tissue damage in athletes, induces cell rejuvenation, improves skin tone and reduces the effects of ageing.
