Frequently Asked Questions
1.How does whole body Cryotherapy work?
Whole body cryotherapy safely lowers skin temperature for a period of up to three minutes. Stepping into a Cryo Sauna, your body is briefly enveloped with extremely cold air, with temperatures ranging between -140 degrees celsius and -180 degrees celsius. When you step out of the Cryo Sauna, your skin temperatures are returned to normal levels.
2. Is cryotherapy dangerous?
Cryotherapy treatments are not dangerous, the liquid nitrogen that is used as a chilling agent does not come into contact with your skin. A trained operator is always present during the treatment so to control the temperature levels and monitor your comfort.
3. Are there any reasons why i shouldn’t do a cryotherapy session?
Anyone who has unmanaged hypertension or a pacemaker, has a history of or is being treated for cancer, has a deep vein thrombosis, has a cold allergy, or is pregnant should not use cryotherapy. If you have questions about whether you have any risk, you should first ask your healthcare provider before using a Cryo Sauna.
4. Is it comfortable?
Our temperatures are limited to three minutes, this gives you the optimal level of exposure to see maximum impact. It is cold but painless. The best way to describe the feeling of a Cryo Sauna treatment is like standing in front of a freezer cooler naked.
5. How long does a cryotherapy session last?
Whole body Cryotherapy is a 3 minute session in the Cryo Sauna. Any Cryo local treatment as in a facial or specific body part can last anywhere from 6 to 12 minutes. Any Cryo Sculpting treatment lasts 30 minutes.
6. I’m claustrophobic. Can I still use the Cryo Sauna?
The Cryo Sauna is open at the top and your head sticks out. The height can be adjusted depending on each individual. The Cryo Sauna is also equipped with a door that is closed but not locked. You are ALWAYS in control while in the chamber.
7. What do I wear during the treatment?
Due to extremely low temperatures that the body is exposed to our clients must wear undergarments or bathing suit to protect intimate body parts. All other clothing and jewelry is removed leaving the cooling air to penetrate the skin.
8. Is 1 Cryo Treatment enough?
While every Cryo session can be beneficial, we recommend our clients consider one of our packages containing 10-20 sessions over the course of a month. As a maintenance program, we suggest that the series be completed every 3 months. Professional athletes will often do a session a day to achieve peak performance.
9. How does a Cryo Facial work?
Cryo Facials help to close pores on our face and in the process can tighten the skin. During a treatment the surface temperature of your skin will drop to around 7 or 8 degrees celsius, a process that increases production of healthy collagen. A Cryo Facial takes around 12 minutes.
