Localized Cryotherapy, or “Spot Treatments”, are used to reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling in specific targeted areas. This allows us to focus on a very specific area without having to freeze surrounding areas as well. This can include but not limited to specific joints such as knees, elbows, shoulders or specific muscle groups such as hamstrings and quads. A single localized treatment will last only 5-10 minutes and is perfect for all sports from rugby players to CrossFit athletes. It is also a great tool for enhancing the recovery process post injury/surgery or to relieve aches in pains due to overuse and abuse from daily work and activities.
Cryo Facials are a face-focused type of cryotherapy, also known as “Frotox.” Here’s how it works. You sit back and relax, just like getting a traditional facial, except instead of exfoliating creams, fancy peels and aggressive attractions, your face is frozen. Deep-freeze temps and beams of vaporized liquid nitrogen instantly shrink enlarged, oily pores and increase the circulation of clean, fresh blood to your face. Leaving you looking fresh faced with a cool glow.
