Why do Celebrities love Cryotherapy so much?

Cryofacials have become the new red carpet trend, with celebrities such as Demi Moore, Mandy Moore, Lindsay Lohan, Alicia Keys, Demi Lovato, Jessica Alba and Jennifer Aniston having a quick session before the big event. After just one Cryotherapy session, fine lines and wrinkles will be reduced and your skin will have a beautiful youthful glow, we always wondered how Jennifer stays looking so young!

Another health benefit of cryotherapy is a boosted metabolism, which when used with a healthy diet and lifestyle, can result in weight-loss and a smooth, toned figure. Celebrities like Hugh Jackman, Justin Bieber, Daniel Craig, Shaquille O’Neal, Tony Robbins and Kevin Heart have been using Cryotherapy as part of their fitness regime to get in shape for movies, photo shoots, music videos and even just to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Whole Body Cryotherapy also leaves you feeling simply great. When your skin’s surface temperature drops below freezing, your heart begins to pump more blood around your body, so your cells are getting an energising boost of oxygen. During this immune response, happy little endorphins are also released, flooding your body with their feel-good factor. People who use Cryotherapy regularly have stated that they have more energy throughout the day, and simply feel healthier all-round. This could be the reason why some unassuming celebrities like Dr, Oz, Bobbi Brown and Yoko Ono also frequently use Whole Body Cryotherapy.

The COLD Hard Facts About Cryotherapy and Weight Loss

It seems like something out of a futuristic Sci-Fi movie… Stripping down to the bare essentials and jumping into a chamber that will basically freeze the surface of your skin, all in the name of weight loss. However, there’s a reason that Cryotherapy is fast becoming the go-to treatment for star athletes and celebrities all over the world.

Whole Body Cryotherapy works by passing liquid nitrogen vapor over the skin, causing the surface temperature to drop dramatically. This triggers an immune response in the body resulting in reduced inflammation, decreased pain and an increase in metabolism, something that could help with your weight loss goals.

That’s right, Whole Body Cryotherapy can be a fantastic calorie burner. After a 3-minute Cryotherapy session, your body will burn up to 800 calories, that’s the equivalent of 45 minutes of rigorous cycling! However, it should be noted that sessions of Whole Body Cryotherapy alone won’t make you lose weight. These treatments should be used as an aid in weight loss, to be used alongside a healthy diet and exercise regime.

So, how does it work? Due to the freezing cold nitrogen vapor, your brain triggers your body’s survival mode. This results in the secretion of adrenaline and an increase in blood and oxygen to your skins surface, causing a boost in immunity, rapid cell renewal and an increase in metabolism. As your body is tricked into thinking it’s beginning to freeze, it will start breaking down that stubborn brown fat in order to raise your core temperature. Using a large amount of energy like this to heat up the body is what burns those pesky calories.

Following your treatment, for around 8 hours, your body will keep on burning around 2000−3300 Kilojoules of energy. So you can see why, in conjunction with a healthy diet and active lifestyle, Cryotherapy can help you with your weight loss goals.

Not only will Whole Body Cryotherapy assist in burning extra calories, but it will also improve sleep and boost your energy, leaving you in the best possible mindset to do your usual exercise routine. Also, while working out, our bodies can become tired and even injured. As Whole Body Cryotherapy decreases inflammation and pain caused by sports and rigorous exercise, it can help get you back to your workout much quicker, and make those rest days so much more beneficial.
