How Often Should You Do Cryotherapy?

So, we all know that Cryotherapy is the ice cold therapy taking the world by storm. But for those who are Cryotherapy addicts, and those who are total beginners, there’s one looming question… How often should you do Cryotherapy?

Technically, you could do Whole Body Cryotherapy every single day, as it’s a safe and extremely beneficial treatment. However, many things such as budget, travel, life commitments and location can make it totally unrealistic to undergo this kind of Cryotherapy schedule. A number of sessions you need also depends on why you are doing Whole Body Cryotherapy in the first place. Starting Cryotherapy for pain, injuries or inflammation needs a completely different number of sessions to treatments for sleep loss, weight loss or energy boost.

How often in the beginning?

No matter what you’re stepping into that CryoChamber for, it’s advisable to give you treatment a kick-start’! Most Cryotherapy specialists will recommend you do 5-7 sessions of Whole Body Cryotherapy for the first two weeks in order to boost your treatment. Doing a large blast of Cryotherapy in the beginning like this cleanses your body of toxins, boosts your metabolism and sets you up for maintenance sessions in the future.

How many maintenance sessions?

Even after just one Cryotherapy session, you will be feeling more energised, you will burn unto 800 calories, have reduced inflammation and pain, and will feel a surge of endorphins. Having said that, doing Cryotherapy is a bit like going to the gym, if you want optimum results, you have to go more than once, and preferably on an ongoing basis.

How often you need to go will depend on the problem you are trying to treat. A selected injury or recovery from an operation will need a few sessions in a short space of time, whereas if you simply want to increase your overall energy and health, then you should do fewer sessions spaces over more time.

The list below will give you a good guideline of how many sessions and how often you should do Whole Body Cryotherapy.

Overall Energy Boost – 1 to 2 times a week (or whenever you’re needing a pick-me-up)

Inflammation Maintenance – 1 to 2 times a week

Workout Recovery – 2 to 3 times a week (depending on workout schedule)

Recovery for Athletes – 2 to 5 times a week (in season)

Chronic Aches & Pain – 3 to 5 times a week

Recovering from Surgery – 3 to 5 times a week

Recovering from Injury – 3 to 5 times a week

Chronic Illness – 3 – 5 times a week (Arthritis, Fibromyalgia etc)

Please note that the above list is just a guideline. The actual amount of sessions you will need will depend on your personal problem or goals.

What is a Cryofacial and Does it Hurt?

Cryofacials are a Cryogenic treatment, developed by the highly talented Dr Kuehne in Los Angeles.  The process uses a controlled stream of liquid nitrogen vapours, which is passed over the entire face and neck. This below zero stream comes from a probe like ‘Cryowand’ and is used to ‘freeze’ the outer layer of skin, leaving your complexion looking brighter, more vibrant and with fewer fine lines.

As soon as the vapour passes over your skin there is an instantaneous tightening of the skin’s surface and pores, which effectively fills in fine lines and wrinkles. However, it’s underneath the skin that the true magic happens. The Cryofacial instantly triggers a steady dilation of blood vessels and lymphatic capillaries, allowing the blood to carry more oxygen, nutrients and even collagen to the skin’s surface. This quick rush of goodies causes the production of collagen to increase, leaving you with a truly glowing and even complexion.

If you suffer from puffiness around your eyes or red patches on your face and neck, having a Cryofacial could be the answer to all your problems. The liquid nitrogen vapour relaxes muscles and reduces swelling and inflammation, which can drastically reduce puffiness and uneven skin tones.

The whole process only takes around 10 minutes, and unlike most other facial treatments, there’s no irritation or reddening afterwards. You can step straight out of the clinic and onto the red carpet after a Cryofacial treatment, which is what a lot of celebrities do.

Does a Cryofacial hurt?

Many people worry that they won’t be able to handle the freezing cold air, or that the process will be extremely painful. The Cryofacial process, when done by a professional, won’t cause any discomfort at all. Most people describe the experience as extremely relaxing and soothing, likening the sensation to having a hand fan blowing on your face on a hot summer’s day. Many Cryofacial experts have actually had clients fall asleep in the chair during the process as they were so relaxed.

There’s also absolutely no chance of freezing or damaging the skin in any way. The stream of liquid nitrogen vapour is passed over the surface of the skin in a gentle circular motion and is never left in one place long enough to cause any damage at all.

What are the long-term effects?

From the second you get out of the chair, you’ll notice a dramatic change in your skin’s appearance. Fine lines will be reduced, and your skin will look healthy, vibrant and glowing. However, when used on a regular basis, Cryofacials can have a wide range of amazing Benefits.
