What is cryotherapy?

It is an innovative technique that subjects the body to low temperatures in order to react the organism. This treatment claims to have a clear impact on the strengthening of the immune system. More medical and beauty centers in the world use it for healthy purposes.

The machines designed for that therapy, work with liquid nitrogen whose temperature can range between eighty degrees below zero to one hundred ninety degrees below zero, depending on the treatment chosen. The exposure in the cabins, do not last more than 3 minutes and the sudden contact with the cold, causes the body temperature to increase and the internal immune system is reinforced, so it is practically impossible to get sick during the short time that the session lasts.

Main effects of cryotherapy

Cryotherapy achieves a series of chemical reactions within our body that stimulate cell feeding, as well as an increase and an improvement in blood circulation. These are some of its effects in our body:

First, it makes the heart muscle work by increasing its volumes, especially diastolic filling, but not its heart rate.

Secondly, it favors the action of insulin by improving simple blood sugar levels. In addition, it increases the correct secretion of pancreatic enzymes, such as insulin, or liver, such as transaminases.

In third place, it helps the circulation of gastric substances and, therefore, their stomach digestion. It also improves the intestinal muscles.

In fourth place, it promotes the absorption of food substances in the small intestine, as well as the absorption of type B vitamins at the intestinal level.

Last, it improves the circulation and transit of the substances of the portal system, with which the body manages to eliminate better toxic substances accumulated in soft tissues such as muscles, tendons or joints.

Due to its numerous benefits, cryotherapy can have various applications both in the world of sports and in the world of beauty.

Cryotherapy in the world of sports

Cryotherapy is indicated for many people, although perhaps one of its star applications is in the world of sports medicine. This is because it helps to treat sports injuries of different kinds, since it is indicated for fibrillar micro-fractures, tendonitis, tendinosis or, even, muscle overloads.

But, specifically, what are the benefits of cryotherapy in sports?

1. Increase performance

Blood flow is increased and chemical substances are released that make the athlete achieve greater power. In addition, greater top speed and greater resistance to fatigue.

2. Recovery after effort

Applied after great efforts, cryotherapy enhances muscle recovery. Which implies great benefits in periods of high physical demand. Especially designed for preseason, competitions, tournaments or championships. Its relaxing action causes a significant reduction of discomfort and muscle fatigue.

3. Injury recovery

In addition to preventing injuries it helps your recovery. It considerably reduces the time of convalescence due to inflammations caused by blows, trauma and overexertion. It also reduces pain and promotes muscle regeneration.

4. Mental balance

Promotes the release of endorphins. They are neuropeptides that create a state of well-being, feeling of happiness and relaxation. In addition, it provides emotional stability to the athlete and increased motivation.

Cryotherapy as a beauty treatment

The use of cryotherapy as a beauty treatment is called aesthetic cryotherapy. In fact, one of the fields in which whole body cryotherapy has entered strongly is that of aesthetics.

Since its origin, cryotherapy has had various applications in aesthetic medicine treatments thanks to its anti-inflammatory, vasoconstrictor and analgesic effect, but why?

Controlled exposure to cold activates metabolism and circulation, in addition to favoring a series of reactions that rejuvenate the skin.

It is clear that the anti-inflammatory effect is one of the main keys of the process, because it produces other effects that favor its use in beauty treatments. That effects are four:

Vasomotor effects. Applying cold on the body surface produces a cutaneous vasoconstriction. The reduction of blood flow that has also been observed at the joint level.

The metabolic effects. There is a decrease in oxygen consumption and a decrease in metabolism in the affected area. This causes a decrease in the secretion of the mediators of inflammation and also of pain.

Sensitive-motor effects. The cold raises the painful threshold of nociceptors and decreases the speed of nerve conduction.

The neuromuscular effects. The cold causes a decrease in spasticity. It is produced by two mechanisms. On the one hand, due to the decrease in gamma hyperactivity. And, on the other, by the decrease in afferent discharges of the neuromuscular spindle.

In summary, the benefits of cryotherapy in aesthetics can:

  • Promotes calorie burning and cellulite reduction
  • Helps to control overweight
  • Rejuvenates and improves skin quality
  • Helps fight various disorders of the epidermis (spots on the face)
  • Eliminate toxins
  • Oxygenates the cells
