Cryotherapy for Facials and Localized Areas
Have you tried a Cryo Facial or Localized Cryotherapy Session? You may have heard about the benefits whole body cryotherapy has to offer, but did you know there are cryotherapy benefits when utilizing cryotherapy for facials and in a localized manner as well? Let's take a look at what these uses of cryotherapy entail as well as what they have to offer.
The cryo facial is used to refine the skin's appearance on the face and neck. During your 10-12 minute cryo facial, the cold temperatures cause the blood vessels in your skin to contract and in turn dilate, which improves oxygenated blood flow to the surface. Nutrients provided by the increased blood flow start the restorative process of the facial. Your skin is left feeling cleansed and refreshed.
Through participating in cryo facials consistently, you may notice some benefits such as; stimulate collagen production, calm acne breakouts, reduce skin irritation, tighten skin, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It is suggested that for maximum benefits you should receive a cryo facial 2-3 times per week.
Celebrities such as Mandy Moore have found the use of cryo facials to be a beneficial addition in maintaining a youthful appearance to her skin.
A localized cryotherapy session is provided with the same equipment used for the cryo facial. By using a hose to target a specific area of the body, we are able to hone in on the inflammation you may be experiencing in a localized area. Sessions last 6-10 minutes on average.
Localized cryotherapy is used to reduce inflammation, swelling and pain in a targeted area. Unlike whole body cryotherapy, which stimulates an internal systemic anti-inflammatory response, localized cryotherapy is comparable to an 'ice pack approach', although much safer and efficient based on our experience. It is suggested to use localized cryotherapy on an as needed basis.
Guests frequently combine localized cryotherapy with whole body cryotherapy to target inflammation in focus areas such as a knee or ankle. Local cryotherapy can also be used to treat psoriasis, burns, acne, and local injuries.
