Before you proceed with a cryotherapy treatment, though, you may have a bunch of questions. To give you a better understanding of this treatment, what it entails and how it can benefit you, here is a look at the answers to some frequently asked questions regarding cryotherapy.

How does cryotherapy work?

During a cryotherapy treatment session, the surface temperature of the skin is safely lowered using gasiform nitrogen. Your body will be enveloped by the cold air that is created by the nitrogen for a period of up to three minutes. Temperatures can range between -140°C and -180°C.

Where is Cryotherapy Done?

Long Island Cryotherapy treatments are done in a CRYO Sauna. This metal chamber consists of a door, which is used to enter and exit, an opening at the top, and a platform at the bottom that adjusts to your height. Once inside the sauna, it will be filled with gasiform nitrogen, which will instantly create icy cold temperatures in the air inside the chamber, and on your body. Your skin surface temperature will lower in less than 60 seconds, and your body will slowly be turned so that the subzero temperatures can evenly envelope you.

Is it dangerous?

The gasiform nitrogen that is used in cryotherapy does not make contact with your skin, and it is not hazardous to breathe in. In fact, the air that we breathe is 78% nitrogen. Also, during treatment, a trained cryotherapy operator will always be present. This operator will control the temperature inside the chamber, ensuring that you are comfortable during your entire treatment.

Is it uncomfortable?

Cryotherapy huntington treatments are limited to three minutes. This short period of time ensures that you receive optimal exposure to subzero temperatures so that you can reap the maximum benefits, and it also ensures that you are comfortable with the sudden change and drastic change in temperature. To put the experience in perspective, during a cryotherapy treatment, you will feel as if you are placing your bare skin inside a freezer on a hot day.

What should I wear?

Prior to entering the CRYO Sauna, you will be required to dress in protective clothing, which includes a pair of cotton socks, which you will be provided with, and your undergarments. Only the hands and face are visible during the treatment, which ensures that your modesty will be preserved.

What will I feel like after the treatment?

After a treatment, most clients say that they experience a sudden rush of energy and that they feel very awake and alert. These feelings are the result of the endorphins that the body releases when it is exposed to the extreme cold temperatures. These effects can last up to 8 hours and usually increase with the number of treatment sessions.
