Freezing for Beauty


Cryotherapy has been gaining popularity with athletes, celebrities and spa clients, as cryo-centers are popping up everywhere. People are willing to stand in -240+ “space portals” for a two to three-minute session to drop their core body temperature. I am sure you are asking, “but why?”

The cold triggers blood vessels in the skin’s surface and muscle tissue to constrict, forcing inflammation away from the surface tissue and revving the body’s immune response. In simple terms, this process reduces inflammation, and less inflammation slows down the aging process. That is why this treatment makes a great addition to any spa menu.
