We offer Cryotherapy Stimulation treatments for a myriad of applications from skin conditions, weight loss and regular weekly relaxing massage. Utilizing low temperature to encourage the body to become more active and is used as a modality to stimulate a beneficial physiological response from the body.
We start with a consultation and skin analysis to determine the health and condition of your skin and the purpose you are seeking to use Cryotherapy. This treatment is appropriate for the following conditions:
CRYO STIMULATION – Uses the cooling power of carbon dioxide (CO2) – the same as the contents of the fire extinguishers seen on office and clinic walls. The CO2 is in liquid form in the cylinder and, as it leaves, expands and cools to a very chilly -78oC (-108oF), providing a stream of cooling vapor which is applied to the skin.
The technology allows a localized area of skin (the abdomen, a thigh, shoulder etc.) to be cooled quickly from around 35oC/95oF to 4oC/39oF in less than 30 seconds, using a targeted spray of cold vapor. This temperature shock causes blood vessels in the underlying tissue to constrict (vasoconstriction) as a way of protecting the body’s core temperature.

CHANGES WITHIN YOU – As soon as the cold source is removed, the body warms the area quickly by expanding the blood vessels to around 4 times their original diameter (vasodilation). A rush of freshly oxygenated blood saturates the tissue, bringing with it, hormones, neurotransmitters, and nutrients. At the same time, unwanted by-products and waste produced from natural body processes are removed from the area to be processed by the lymphatic system.
The effect is for the localized tissue to receive all it needs to rejuvenate and restore its optimal functions:
- Massage Injured muscle tissue is relieved of inflammation (at the optimum time as some inflammation is useful in the healing process) and fed with all the goodness and nutrients they need to recover faster
- Ageing and thinning skin (FROTOX) is able to repair the basal cell layer to restore the supply of collagen, elastin and hydration to regain a smoother, tighter appearance
- Fat tissue breaks down and is eliminated from the body, while other surrounding tissues are not damaged.
