Cryoskin Vs. Other Fat Freezing Options


How is Cryoskin different from other “Fat Freezing” Options?

What is Cryoskin?
Cryoskin is a non-invasive session used for slimming, cellulite reduction, and toning of the skin. Fat cells are brought to apoptosis, in which fat cells are bursted and the body then rids the fat deposits through the lymphatic system. Treatments are safe with no down time before or after sessions.

How do other therapies conduct the procedure?
Other competitors use a cosmetic treatment to remove areas of body fat. It works by freezing the fat cells from specific parts of the body by using a suction force in specific areas of the body.

What can I expect in the Cost of procedures?
Cryoskin Slimming or Toning session will be $375 per session- 5 Sessions will be $1500
Other Competition ranges between: $750 per session or $2,000 to $4,000 with multiple treatments

What are side effects associated with Cryoskin?
Temporary Redness in the area that was worked on- only because of exposure to both heat and cold for the duration of the session
Some common side effects of other therapies include:
Tugging sensation at the treatment site.
Pain, stinging, numbness, or aching at the treatment site.
Temporary redness, swelling, bruising, and skin sensitivity at the treatment site.
Paradoxical adipose hyperplasia at the treatment site.
“Shark Bites” from over aggressive or misplaced suction.

WBC First Timer!

My 3 minute experience at -220F.


I’ve always heard that it is important to recover your body after an intense workout. After completing whole body circuits as part of my daily workout routine, I find myself sore and tense. My normal recovery methods of stretching post workout were not enough to ease my aching muscles. Working at Cryotherapy Advantage, I had the opportunity to try out for Whole Body Cryotherapy for the first time. While I had read about the many benefits of Cryotherapy and seen videos online, I had not previously tried it. I am not going to lie, I was definitely intimidated after seeing the futuristic looking chamber and the screen flashing -220 F. I began wondering how it was even possible to be exposed to that amount of cold for 3 minutes and questioning how I would survive since I was already complaining of the cold weather that day. But I knew that the benefits were there and surely my new coworkers wouldn’t stear my down the wrong path, right?

After a quick rundown of the safety procedures I anxiously put on my gloves, socks, and the fuzziest/warmest looking slippers. I rang the doorbell to signal that I was ready upon which Meredith and Hayley excitedly entered the room. They opened the door and led me into the chamber, I could immediately feel that the temperature was dramatically colder. Once the machine started, I could hear and feel the pumping of the nitrogen, filling the space around me.  As the temperature continued to drop, I felt all of the blood rushing from my extremities to the core of my body. Naturally, I began to shiver which they assured me was normal. I also felt that the parts of my body that hold the most pain, particularly my sore legs were getting colder. In the last thirty seconds I felt as though I had been in there for a lifetime, but we chatted about my new role at Cryotherapy Advantage and my plans for the weekend which made the time pass faster. Once the session was over I hopped out of there as fast as I could and immediately began to feel my blood flowing back to my extremities bringing a warm tingling sensation. I no longer felt exposed to the frigid temperature and my body continued to warm up. A rush of energy consumed my body, leaving me exhilarated and proud. I survived and was loving how I felt! I couldn’t feel any pain or soreness despite my killer workout the day before. I was excited to share my experience with my family and friends! There is no need to struggle through muscle soreness any longer, in just 3 minutes I can give my body what it needs. With the help of Whole Body Cryotherapy, I found it easy to bring my muscles, joints and blood pumping again. I can’t wait to help clients recover from muscle soreness, injuries, and chronic pain.

Train Harder- Recover Smarter

NormaTec Recovery

NormaTec is one of my favorite ways to recover after crossfit classes, strength training, or simply after a long day of being on my feet. This product started as a way to reduce swelling, aches, and low circulation and is now the go to for professional athletes and those who follow a healthy workout routine! NormaTec’s patented Sequential Pulse Technology sets it apart from any other massage compression device by synergistically combining three distinct massage techniques. Using pulsing, gradient hold, and distal release which is proven to speed the body’s recovery process.

Pulsing action of the equipment mimics the muscle pump of the arms or legs, greatly enhancing the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the limbs after intense use.

Gradient hold utilizes constant pressure to keep the body’s fluids from being forced to one end of the limb while the Pulsing continues.

Distal release prevents any backflow of fluids by releasing the hold pressures in each zone as soon as possible allowing each limb to gain maximal rest time without a significant pause between compression cycles

In recent years, professional and recreational athletes are training harder and more frequently than ever. Users include members of elite NCAA programs, the majority of NFL, NBA, and NHL teams; the US Navy Seals; and the US Olympic Committee for recovery. Clients will notice a reduction in swelling, pain and an increased range of motion. Normatec sessions range from 30-60 minutes and can be used daily to promote healthy blood flow.

Choose how you want to recover with 3 options for attachments- legs, hips, or arms- and 7 levels of pressure. Then, relax in our large reclining chairs, enjoy a cup of coffee, or take a power nap!

How Cryotherapy can improve your sleep!

How Whole Body Cryotherapy Helps You Sleep Better
11/19/18 By Meredith

Did you know that cryotherapy also benefits you while you sleep? One of the greatest benefits that you can derive from whole body cryotherapy is improvement in sleep quality. On days that I utilize Whole Body Cryotherapy, I get the best night’s sleep and I wake up feeling refreshed and tend to never hit my snooze button. Here’s a look at some of the benefits that whole body cryotherapy has for helping you to get a good night’s rest.

Benefits of Sleep and Cryotherapy
If you are having trouble sleeping because of any kind of pain, inflammation, or soreness in the body, cryotherapy will help ease pain while you sleep. Exposing your body to extremely cold temperatures in the whole body cryotherapy chamber will help diffuse inflammation and pain in the body, which will make you less restless while you sleep at night.
Cryotherapy can also benefit your sleep patterns because it creates positive hormone responses in your body. When your body is exposed to the extremely cold temperatures in whole body cryotherapy, your body produces hormones that are directly related to sleep and relaxation.
The intense sensation of cold will trigger your body to release the endorphin norepinephrine, which helps you feel relaxed. This also acts as a mild sedative to help relax you and, in turn, help you get better sleep at night. And who doesn’t like a better nights sleep? It also affects your mood, level of energy, ability to focus, and your sleep-wake cycles.

How your body directly responds to the intense exposure to cold temperatures causes your body to physically and mentally relax. This positive endorphin and chemical response of your brain will help reduce pain and inflammation, and will also help you clear your head and keep your mind from wandering so that you can sleep more soundly at night.

Moving Forward With Cryotherapy
The best aspect of cryotherapy is that it is a totally natural way to relax and put your body and mind at ease for better sleep quality. Let us help you feel the difference and sleep better at Cryotherapy Advantage!

February is American Heart Month

We’re all love this month! February is a time for letting the ones you love know how you feel – but rather than just letting them know how you feel, what about making sure they are living their healthiest life possible to ensure they’re around for many decades to come?

Heart health is important and recent studies have shown that exposure to prolonged cold improves your Cardiovascular health! Whole Body Cryotherapy helps to boost freshly oxygenated throughout the body, which causes the heart to pump harder, thusly increasing your cardiovascular health! Additionally, Whole Body Cryotherapy burns up to 800 calories within 3 minutes, helping to reduce fat and increase weight loss – which can also improve your cardiovascular health too!

 

In addition to Whole Body Cryotherapy, some simple things you can do to help your cardiovascular health are:

  • Reducing your daily intake of sodium/salt
  • Exercising more frequently and incorporating more cardio intense workouts
  • Cooking more meals at home
  • Going for a short walk after eating
  • Eat at least 5 servings of fruit and vegetables a day
  • Limit consumption of alcohol
  • Quitting smoking

Take a look at some of the statistics below regarding heart health:

American Heart Month Statistics At a Glance

  • The overall rate of death attributable to CVD (Cardiovascular Disease) is 220.8 per 100,000 people.
  • On average, someone dies of CVD every 40 seconds. That is about 2,200 deaths of CVD each day.
  • On average, someone in the US has a stroke every 40 seconds. This is about 795,000 new or recurrent stroke each year. On average, someone dies of a stroke every 4 minutes
  • 85.7 million, or 34.0% of US adults are estimated to have hypertension.
  • 28.5 million, or 11.9% of US adults are estimated to have high cholesterol levels greater 240 mg/dL.
  • 23.4 million, or 9.1% of US adults are estimated to have diagnosed diabetes.
  • 1 in 6 males and 1 in 7 females in the United States are current smokers.
  • On average, 1 in 3 adults, or 30.4% do not engage in leisure time physical activity.

If you or someone you know needs help improving their cardiovascular health, talk to your doctor, join a local gym, and stop by for a session of Cryotherapy and educate yourself on how collectively we can reduce the prevalence of CVD and improve heart health not only in America, but worldwide!
