It’s hard to believe, but true: the hottest solution for pain is provided by treatment delivered at temperatures far below zero. The Skin Care Clinic offers Whole Body Cryo Therapy to individuals suffering acute or chronic pain. The cryo therapy process uses supercooled liquid nitrogen vapor to trigger the release of endorphins and reduce inflammation throughout the body.
I hate the cold! That’s why I moved to Scottsdale! Why should I consider Cryo Therapy?
The Whole Body Cryo Therapy process doesn’t put you in a deep freeze! Although patients are treated in a chamber that uses liquid nitrogen vapor chilled to -184 degrees Fahrenheit, the vapor does not actually come in contact with your skin.
What kind of conditions can benefit from Whole Body Cryo Therapy?
A short list of conditions that can be treated by Cryo Therapy include:
- Joint pain
- Anxiety and depression
- Conditions worsened by muscle inflammation
Who benefits from Cryo Therapy?
The treatment is also useful for athletes and the fitness minded, who can slash their recovery time from intense exercise periods by up to 50 percent, due to dramatically reduced lactic acid levels, increased circulation, and the oxygenation and detoxification of the blood.
What is Cryo skin therapy?
Our Cryo Facials use the same supercooled liquid nitrogen vapor as Whole Body Cryo Therapy to revitalize your face, hair, and lashes. Cryo Facials are medically proven to activate collagen production deep within the dermal layers.The facial is delivered via a controlled vapor of pressurized liquid nitrogen, which is passed over the scalp, face, neck, and décolletage.
This treatment increases the skin’s elasticity, diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, decreases pore size, and undereye bags and discoloration. Hair and lash follicles are activated, accelerating hair growth and the production of thick, lush lashes. This treatment lasts from eight to 10 minutes and results are seen within a handful of sessions.
