There are several types of cryo freeze therapy available in the Corona, CA area. Cryotherapy can be whole body, localized or facial cryotherapy. They all use the same underlying principle of treatment with sub-zero temperatures. The temperatures used in the therapies is between -200 degrees Fahrenheit and -256 degrees Fahrenheit. It may sound unbearable, but you’ll find that it’s not nearly as bad as you think. In fact, some people love that exhilarating feeling, especially since it’s for such a short time.
The super cooled chambers are a three-minute experience.
You don’t even have to stay in the chamber for that long, but most people don’t mind it. Yes, it’s cold, but it feels so amazing that you’ll probably want to do it again. You’ll probably shiver a bit, but that’s your body trying to warm itself. That’s good. It’s a boost to circulation and burns hundreds of calories. The blood retreats from the surface areas and goes deep into the body to keep it warm, where it continuously filters and picks up oxygen and nutrients. When you leave the chamber it quickly flows back to all areas of the body, bringing a feeling of pleasure from the endorphins created in the process.
Cryofacials use the cold for beauty.
Just like a cryochamber, cryofacials use the cold, but only on the face and neck. It’s pressurized liquid nitrogen vapors that stimulate the skin cells to help the skin look better. It can help eliminate the appearance of large pores, while reducing the fine lines and wrinkles in the face. It helps boost the production of collagen and tightens the skin. It works well as a treatment and soothing aid for psoriasis and eczema. You’ll notice your complexion is more vibrant since it improves circulation.
Localized cryotherapy is used for specific areas of the body.
Just like cryofacials, localized cryotherapy is for specific areas of the body that need extra attention. It’s been used to help speed up the recovery of muscles, help reduce pain, lower inflammation and even reduce cellulite. It’s often used in conjunction with whole body cryotherapy and takes five to ten minutes. It uses the healing powers of the body by enhancing them in a localized area by increasing circulation.
