Cryotherapy Facial Rejuvenation

Cryotherapy has been around for centuries in many forms. The combination of a Greek term, cryo, meaning cold, and therapia, meaning healing, it was developed in Japan in the 1970s and popularized throughout Europe in the 1980s. Whole body cryotherapy was introduced as an alternative to cold-water immersion or ice packs. Initially used in more than 50 European hospitals and medical clinics, it transitioned to athletic training rooms and spas as the public discovered the effectiveness in relieving soreness, muscle pain and inflammation, while stimulating circulation and collagen development.  

As doctors in Europe prescribed cryotherapy for psoriasis and eczema, non-medical service providers in the U.S. adopted it for health as well as beauty treatments that consist of a chemical-free, 10-minute application of cold air, which targets cellular activity, clearance of toxins and the enhancement of collagen activation for a fresher and tighter radiance.   

Cryotherapy facial rejuvenation is a standalone option or it can be added on to three-minute full body or localized cold air therapy treatment. Cold air therapy in the whole body chamber uses dry, fresh, oxygenated air without moisture (humidity) or wind chill. It is not painful like an ice bath or immersion. The process rejuvenates the body, skin and mind.

US Cryotherapy is located at 2349 Vanderbilt Beach Rd., Ste. 504, in Naples. For more information, call 239-325-9050 or visit USCryotherapy.com.
