While whole body cryotherapy is applied to the entire body, localized cryotherapy focuses on specific areas of your skin. Localized cryotherapy targets smaller, painful or inflamed areas to cold temperatures between -240°F to -256°F for about 5 – 10 minutes per location.
Localized cryo has been used for cellulite reduction, inflammation reduction, athletic recovery for specific problem areas, and relief of any form of pain, like post-surgical pain, for example. While whole body cryotherapy treatments are excellent at relieving general inflammation, some parts of the body may require more attention than others due to acute pain. This is where localized or spot cryotherapy comes into play to treat the most affected areas.
Localized cryotherapy is used to minimize pain, promote healing, treat wounds and swelling, and for skin rejuvenation. Even after just one treatment, many of our clients observe smaller pores and wrinkle reduction. Others have reported headache alleviation. This type of cryotherapy can be applied to any specific injured part of the body such as the ankles, shoulders, feet, elbows, knees, and neck.
