Your Initital Localised Cryotherapy Questions?
What is Localised Cryotherapy?
In some cases, direct cooling of a specific area may be more beneficial for client concerns than whole body cryotherapy. Using cooled gas streams, consisting of mainly liquid nitrogen vapour, the CryoBLO can be used on an area of skin without affecting the surrounding tissues. The treatment takes as little as 1-2 minutes and up to 15 minutes for larger areas, the effect on the area is most spectacular. The extreme cold provides stimulus that activates physiological processes within the body, it can significantly help relieve pain and repair damaged tissue.
How Will You Benefit from Localised Cryotherapy?
The treatment is excellent as a supporting therapy that is used directly on an area for improving chronic pain, inflammation, itching, an array of skin conditions and sports injuries. It’s also great for general vitality and rejuvenation, giving the skin a fantastic glow, improving scar tissue, stretch marks and cellulite. Also, the use of cryotherapy after an operation is quite common as it accelerates the healing process and improves any pain without high levels of medication and the accompanying side effects!
Professional athletes recover faster and perform at higher levels when cryotherapy is applied. Particularly over a direct injury using the CryoBLO.
It’s great for looking amazing as it improves the skins tone, texture and tightens if you have a special occasion or an event to prepare for. For the body it can even help you lose weight while simultaneously good for reducing cellulite as mentioned earlier.
How Does Localised Cryotherapy Work Its Magic?
The practitioner will move the CryoBLO nozzle (the low-temperature air stream) in smooth scanning movements/motions, keeping the nozzle at a distance of 2-4 cm from the skin. A typical area of 10×10 cm is treated approximately for 1 – 2 minutes, at a maximum intensity level of the air stream. You will be sat down or led down and you can relax while you feel the cool air touch the surface level of your skin.
How long will Your Treatment take?
Anywhere between a few minutes and half an hour. This will vary and depend on the area being treated, the size of area, and the what we are treating, for example if it’s for pain due to Injury or a cellulite treatment on a larger area.
Will You Need to Take Time off Work?
No, you can go straight back to work afterwards, there is no downtime following treatment.
Is Localised Cryotherapy Safe?
Firstly – Cryotherapy has been safely used for over 30 years.
Secondly – We wouldn’t personally use it ourselves every week if it wasn’t! Everything that we offer we have on ourselves as we think it’s that fantastic!
Is it Uncomfortable Being That Cold?
The very first time we had Cryotherapy we were a touch nervous and were thinking what must it feel like to be that cold but really oddly it doesn’t feel that bad! A temperature of -120˚C seems cold, however, remember the air is extremely dry. Therefore, you do not really experience the cold as unpleasant. Due to the fact the localised cryotherapy is actually reducing pain and inflammation in a typical treatment area, its actually a very nice relaxing sensation over the skin during delivery.
How Often Should You Have Localised Cryotherapy?
Obviously, this really depends on each individual person! However, once a week is a good starting point. For sports stars they may need to come in daily to speed up recovery and enhance strength and endurance. A course of treatment can usually be arranged if you are having localised cryotherapy for body contouring and skin conditions, similarly with pain and inflammation treatment spacing can be advised upon with your practitioner.
Who Can’t Have Localised Cryotherapy?
There are no absolute contraindications to localised cryotherapy, however there are precautionary contraindicators to consider, some of these are listed below;
– Presence of arterial vasculitis or thromboembolism of vessels /obliterating endarteritis
– Any Cancers or undergoing Chemotherapy
– Raynaud’s disease and any other Circulatory Conditions
– Impaired Skin Sensation
– Under 18 years of age
– Pregnant/Breast Feeding
– General Health and Wellbeing of client to be considered including medications if any.
When Can You See the Results from a Localised Cryotherapy Treatment?
What is the Difference Between a Localised Cryotherapy and Whole-Body Cryotherapy?
Localised cryotherapy specially targets a certain area, keeping the rest of the body and skin in tact protected from the cold. It is direct and you will often have a course of treatment, its used more for skin rejuvenation, tightening and speicific injury points to combat inflamation. Whole body is more intense, and much colder tdue to the nature of the treatment and the experiecne within the chamber or sauna, full body repair is enhanced rather than localised skin repair in a speicific area.
What Benefits Do You & Your Customers Get From Localised Cryotherapy
The main reason for this is the huge reduction in inflammation (the body’s natural healing process) after having cryotherapy. All in all this allows you to return to training quicker and in turn train harder to become even faster, stronger and win more.
Faster Healing After an Injury…
For the same reasons as above, you can heal much faster from an actual injury as well as just intensive training. It can also help to reduce the pain associated with an injury.
Boxing, MMA and UFC are all extensive users of cryotherapy and vocal about its benefits and advantages it’s given them as professional fighters. Other sports that suffer from repetitive strain injuries such as tennis and golf are also fast beginning to realise its benefits and the competitive advantage it gives them over their rivals.
Its not just sports stars that benefit from injury recovery, anyone can! You will also experience less muscle spasms, fast and effective removal of excess heat from the point of injury, and finally for the same reasons as to why hyperbaric oxygen therapy is very effective you are increasing the blood flow of oxygen rich blood cells again speeding up the recovery time.
Cryotherapy is fantastic for stimulating the bodies immune system, via the improved production of hormones triggered by exposure to cold temperatures. This in turn increases your bodies immunity to day to day infections and colds.
Beauty & Skin…
One of the key components to amazing looking skin, is collagen. Cryotherapy increases your production of this wonder protein. Collagen is arguably the most important factors in great looking skin.
This helps to make your skin thicker, tighter with less wrinkles and fine lines.
The reducing of inflammation also makes your skin look brighter and more radiant
Women have reported its helped the reduction of their cellulite.
Improving Rheumatic Complaints…
Though Cryotherapy is excellent for pain relief and living with rheumatism, what it can’t do however is cure it. A course of 10 to 20 treatments in rapid succession will have a great effort on your quality of life and this can in some people last for months afterwards.
