Local Cryotherapy

Tired of being in pain? Body Wise Cryotherapy can provide precision pain relief in minutes utilizing local cryotherapy to reduce pain, decrease inflammation, and rejuvenate sore muscles.

Local cryotherapy is the oldest and easiest way to treat injuries. It focuses on one specific body part, using air that has been cryogenically cooled to sub-zero temperatures. In less than 30 seconds, this cold air is able to penetrate into layers of skin tissue. As soon as the cold source is removed, blood circulation increases, helping to alleviate pain, boosting recovery times, and restoring and rejuvenating the treated area. 

A localized cryotherapy session can be beneficial for many different conditions, including:

  • Allergies
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Dermatitis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Insomnia
  • Lupus
  • Migraines
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Tendonitis

Our localized cryotherapy hand-held unit uses CO2 systematically and provides a quicker, condensed form of ice compression to targeted areas. The rapid cooling to the treatment area activates anti-inflammatory agents that are sent to the injured area to promote healing.

Localized cryotherapy takes just minutes. There is no downtime, it’s non-surgical and non-invasive, and is especially good for addressing pain in the following body areas: neck, wrists, shoulders, lower back, elbows, quads, hamstrings, ankles, and knees.

Localized cryotherapy is an innovative treatment that accelerates healing for those suffering from joint and muscle pain, boosts metabolism and weight loss, reduces anxiety and depression, relieves swelling and inflammation, and reverses the signs of aging. 


Localized cryotherapy offers a host of beauty benefits, too. It can reduce cellulite, tighten the skin, and reduce wrinkles. The application of cold CO2 works to contract the skin, which encourages microcirculation bringing fresh oxygen rich blood to the dermis and epidermis layers, and encourages collagen production.

The appearance of fine lines and blemishes have also shown visible improvement when cyrofacials have been implemented.

Cyrotherapy is not a weight-loss method, but a body sculpting method used to remove stubborn fat that prevents the visible appearance of muscle definition. The systematic use of cold CO2 to stubborn areas of fat can help you reshape your body by activating your body’s ability to break down fat cells which are then flushed out through the lymphatic system. 

This process is called CyroLipolysis and the short applications of cold to target areas trigger the body to destroy fat cells without damage to outer tissues and skin. The surrounding nerves and tissues remain safe from harm because these types of cells are more resistant to cold than fat cells are.

A healthy diet and exercise plan in conjunction with cryotherapy will help make the results of your hard work more visible by removing stubborn fat.

Repeated treatments for both body sculpting and facials have shown improvement over multiple visits with the proper time allotted in-between treatments to allow the body time to complete its natural processes for achieving results.

Local Cryotherapy FAQs

What is local cryotherapy?

Local cryotherapy is basically cold therapy delivered with a hand-held device that targets cold air treatments to a specific injured area. The treatment only takes minutes to complete and leaves the client with benefits that far exceed what traditional icing can provide.

Is local cryotherapy safe?

Yes! Our device uses CO2, which is commonly used with minimally invasive procedures, and is fitted with an array of safety features.

Is local cryotherapy painful?

During a local cryotherapy session, the temperature of the vapor may reach as low as -108 F. While the vapor is very cold, it is definitely comfortable and relaxing. Remember that each individual’s pain threshold is different. 

While cryotherapy can reduce unwanted pain and nerve irritation, it sometimes can leave the affected tissue with unusual sensations, such as numbness or tingling, and can cause redness and irritation to the skin. However, these effects are generally temporary. 

How many treatments will I need?

A single session is used to treat acute symptoms of an affected area and there should be immediate relief of the area after 1 session. The severity and chronic symptoms of the injured area will dictate the number of treatments necessary. 

How long does a session last?

A typical session takes minutes to complete and varies depending upon what area is being targeted. For an example, a facial treatment may take from 30 seconds to 2 minutes, while a full abdominal sculpting may take 6-8 minutes. 

What should I wear?

For your session, the area of your body being treated will need to be dry and exposed. Wear loose clothes to your appointment, or bring shorts, tank top, or t-shirt to change into for treatment.

What to expect after treatment?

Blood vessels at the targeted area begin to narrow, reducing inflammation and swelling,. In addition, tissues are flushed of waste and fluid. Once the body begins to warm up, the affected area will return to a high range of motion. 

Who should not try local cryotherapy?

Although not an exhaustive list, generally local cryotherapy should not be considered by those who are pregnant, have a history of cardiovascular diseases and circulatory disorders, cancer, have open wounds, suffer from cold intolerences, have metal implants or pacemakers, and under the age of 18. Some variables are allowable. If you are unsure, please contact us for a full listing of contraindications.
