How does it work?

All forms of cryotherapy treatment work on the same principle of reducing the temperature of the skin’s surface.

Unlike whole-body cryotherapy, localized cryotherapy focuses on a specific part of the body.
It is based on the impulse of a thermal shock in contact with a nitrogen mist at temperatures as low as -162°C.

This process stimulates and triggers natural reflexes to fight the cold.
Physiological chain reactions respond to this thermal shock, the main effects of which are :

– Anti-inflammatory
– Improved blood flow
– Accelerated tissue repair
– Healing
– Neuropathy
– Analgesic reaction

How does a localized cryotherapy session work?”

First of all, the practitioner takes a full medical history with you when you come in, in order to make a precise diagnosis and propose a protocol tailored to your needs.

The treatment can vary from 5 to 15 minutes, depending on the pathology and the desired effects. The frequency of sessions is determined by the assessment carried out. (from 4 to 15 sessions).
During a localized cryotherapy session, the practitioner sweeps the area to be treated, and thermal sensors constantly measure the skin temperature during the treatment to ensure a safe and effective session.

The main effects of localized cryotherapy

Analgesic (pain-relieving) effect:

Exposure to cold acts on the nervous system by reducing the speed of transmission of nociceptive voices (pain voices). It’s a very powerful analgesic, so it’s part of treatment protocols for chronic pain (over 6 weeks). Or in the treatment of acute pain (sprains).

Anti-inflammatory effect:

Cold reduces the main inflammatory symptoms (redness, swelling, heat and pain). Vessel vasoconstriction due to exposure to cold reduces blood flow to injured or inflamed tissues. This reduces the inflammation cascade and, consequently, all symptoms associated with this metabolic reaction.

Precautions for localized cryotherapy?

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as Ibuprofen should not be taken for 24 hours after the session, and the skin must be free of all creams and lotions before treatment.
