Localized Cryotherapy

Localized Cryotherapy is commonly used for spot treatments to reduce pain/inflammation, repair tissue damage, aids in post-surgery recovery, improves blood circulation and skin tone.

When utilized alongside WBC, Localized Cryotherapy (LC) proves to be a remarkably efficient approach. LC becomes particularly advantageous for individuals who might not have the physical mobility or health required for WBC. This treatment method is precisely tailored to address specific areas of discomfort, aiming to alleviate pain in those targeted regions.

This treatment can be performed on a body part or face.



  • Alleviates pain, inflammation, and swelling in specific targeted areas.
  • Exhibits greater efficiency, potency, and comfort compared to traditional "icing" methods.
  • May reduce cellulite and fat deposits.
  • Combine with WBC to treat problem areas both from the “inside out” as well as from the “outside in”.


  • Promotes the production of collagen, resulting in firmer, smoother, and more elastic skin.
  • Enhances blood flow and circulation within the treated area.
  • Potentially reduces fine lines, pore size, and wrinkles.
  • Could lead to improvements in acne and superficial scarring.
  • May contribute to the amelioration of skin conditions such as psoriasis, dermatitis, and eczema.
  • A fine mist of chilled air vapor is applied to the body part or face for about 5-10 minutes.
What is Localized Cryotherapy?

Localized cryotherapy involves subjecting specific areas of the body to extremely cold air for the purpose of pain and inflammation management, along with the utilization of cryofacials.

Localized Cryotherapy In Physiotherapy
In the realm of physiotherapy, LC treatments are employed to diminish pain, inflammation, and swelling by inducing constriction in blood vessels within a designated region.

Unlike WBC, which triggers an internal systemic anti-inflammatory response in the body, Spot Cryotherapy is comparable to “icing”, but is much more powerful and efficient.

Localized cryotherapy for Cryofacials and Beauty
A Cryofacial is a localized cryotherapy treatment using a non-invasive technique that uses gentle bursts of pressurized, hyper-cooled air to rapidly lower the surface temperature of the clients scalp and skin on both the face and the neck.

The cold temperature instantly causes the skin to tighten, which helps fill in wrinkles and fine lines.

Is localized cryotherapy safe?

LC is a safe treatment that only exposes targeted areas of the body to the cold at any given moment which the operator has full control over.

It is also often considered an entry treatment for doing WBC which can help detect if the client has a cold allergy.

Our LC equipment offers several safety features for clients and operators:

  • The laser feature indicates the ideal distance between the nozzle and the clients skin surface.
  • The temperature indicator shows the temperature on the client’s skin surface and signals the level of tissue perforation.
Are you COVID compliant?

Yes, we have conducted complete COVID risk assessments, follow all the government guidelines, use the appropriate PPE and sanitize after each session.

How many sessions should I have?

You may book a one-time session, but long-term results normally come after multiple sessions. A plan of 10-12 sessions, close together over 6-8 weeks, will accomplish most long-term goals.

How many Localized Cryotherapy sessions can a client do in one day?

There are no limits to the number of sessions per day, but a single area of the body can only be treated once every 12 hours and is limited to physiotherapeutic applications.

Beauty treatments for a specific area should be at least 24 hours apart.

How long can a localized cryotherapy session last?

LC is subject to the client’s level of comfort and the operators limits on session duration. The main limitation for a localized cryo session itself is not overexposing a single area.

A LC session generally lasts between 5 to 10 minutes.
