Here are just a few of the questions clients have when considering undertaking a course of cryotherapy treatments.

If you have a question that isn’t answered below, please email Karen at cryohealthandbeautyuk@gmail.com or call/text 07816 840920 to discuss any queries or concerns you may have.

How does cryotherapy work and what equipment do you use?

At Cryo Health and Beauty UK, treatments are carried out using the Cryo T Elephant, a state-of-the-art localised device, to apply a liquid nitrogen vapour reaching below -1600 centigrade to specific areas of the body for short periods of time depending on the area and treatment.

Applying the vapour triggers a natural reaction to cold temperatures, sending messages to the brain that stimulate the regulatory functions of the body, forcing it to increase blood circulation which speeds up its own natural healing process.

How many sessions will I need to get the best results?

The number of treatments needed will depend on your condition and the goals you are looking to achieve. You’ll be advised on the optimum number and timescale required to maximise your results during your initial consultation.

What should I wear for my sessions?

Just wear loose comfortable clothing that can be removed depending on the treatment you are having.

Because the treatments are completely dry, there’s no need to take a shower afterwards or bring a change of clothes.

How will I feel after my sessions?

In a word, you’ll feel good! Not only will you be able to see or feel the results, you’ll feel more energetic as well, thanks to the endorphins your body releases during the sessions.

This feeling generally lasts at least six to eight hours and increases with the number of sessions you undertake.

Are there any risks associated with cryotherapy?

In most cases, the treatments are well tolerated and risks are minimal. Fluctuations in blood pressure do occur during sessions, an effect which reverses afterwards as circulation returns to normal; and, very rarely, there may be an allergic reaction to extreme cold.

Before beginning a course of treatments, you’ll be asked to complete a Consent Form confirming that you’re not aware of any issues concerning your medical health which might inhibit your use of the treatment. During the initial consultation, you’ll also have the opportunity to discuss any concerns you may have in this respect.
