Whole body cryotherapy is one of the most technologically advanced procedures available for treating the entire body. Whether you’re treating an injury, helping your body recover after intense exercise, or managing the aches and pains in your muscles and joints, cryotherapy provides instant treatment and relief in just a few minutes.
The science behind the cryotherapy process and the technology that goes into the cryosauna are the keys to the success of the process. Understanding how the science and technology work together can give you a better understanding of what whole body cryotherapy can do for you
The cryosauna is composed of aluminum, Alucobond, and cryogenic materials. These cryogenic materials are built to withstand and retain the immense cold produced by the cryosauna to ensure that the machine runs smoothly and that your body gets the full effects of the treatment.
The cryosauna uses the most advanced spray nozzles available to disperse the nitrogen vapor into the cryosauna. Smart pressure technology is used to make sure the system is running efficiently and to guarantee the safety of the patient.
Whole Body Cryotherapy Session
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Lu-Jean Feng will have access to all temperature displays and software controls, which gives her complete control over the cryotherapy process to ensure that the treatment is running smoothly and the patient is safe.
Whole body cryotherapy is accomplished through several simple steps. First, the patient will enter the cryosauna with as few clothes as possible; gloves and socks are provided to the patient in order to protect the extremities from the severe cold. Next, a specialists will adjust the settings on the cryosauna to reach the ideal temperature for your treatment, ranging from -90 Celsius (-130°F) to -120 Celsius (-184°F).
Once the settings are in order, the process will begin. The spray nozzles in the cryosauna will release nitrogen vapor into the cryosauna chamber, exposing your body to the extreme cold. This extreme cold stimulates a natural immune system response in your body that provides instant pain relief in the joints and muscles through the release of endorphins. The cold also improves blood circulation throughout the body, which relieves any inflammation.
The session lasts from one to four minutes, depending on the patient. Most patients feel instant results after just a three-minute session. Whole body cryotherapy can be performed on a daily basis. Most patients find that a daily routine yields the best results.
