FAQ

 

WE UNDERSTAND YOU MIGHT HAVE QUESTIONS.

WE'RE HERE TO ANSWER THEM.

 

CryoSkin

what are the benefits?

The thermal shock given from the treatments is restorative for tissues by significant increase of local microcirculation and collagen.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

By triggering apoptosis of the fat cells, intracellular electrolytes of the fat cell are the first to crystalize. Crystallization is information brought to the cell to program self destruction.

HOW DOES IT FEEL?

Rather pleasant. The start of the treatment is done with a quick skin warming and then a gradual but rapid decrease of temperature. Towards the end of the treatment, the thermal shock appears quickly, giving the feeling of warmth and lightness.

ARE THE EFFECTS PERMANENT?

The effects of the CryoSkin 2.0 are not permanent, as your skin and body will continue aging after the treatment. This does not freeze you in time like Captain America. You will notice the effects of the treatment decline over the next couple of years.

ARE YOU LICENSED?

The CryoSkin 2.0 is similar to a massage, so we are licensed in massage therapy per the MBLEX (Massage & Bodywork Licensing Examination)

WHO SHOULDN'T USE THE CRYOSKIN 2.0?

There are few reasons to not advise this treatment. They include Raynaud's Syndrome, allergy to cold, pregnancy or breastfeeding, severe diabetes, cancer, and kidney or liver disease.

are there side effects?

Localized redness, minimal local pain, and some itching due to cosmetic products used by the client are a few of the known side effects. If you experience any of these, they generally disappear within 2-3 hours.

Can clients use the cryoskin 2.0 after a cryotherapy treatment?

We advise the client to wait a day after their CryoTherapy treatment to ensure overexposure to the cold on localized areas is avoided.

CAN I GET A TREATMENT WHEN I HAVE AN OPEN WOUND?

Yes, as long as the wound is covered with plaster. In this case, treatments should aid in healing due to increased blood flow.

i just GOT a facial. can i still get a treatment?

Yes, treatments after dermatological procedures are compatible after 72 hours. This does NOT include Botox and Fillers.

HOW ABOUT WAXING?

We advise at least 1 week between a wax and a treatment to make sure treated areas are fully healed.

Why is this effective for cellulite?

The vasocontriction and vasodilation of blood vessels increases blood flow which results in collagen and elastin production. Collagen breaks down cellulite.

WHAT'S WITH THE GEL?

The gel we use is used for ease of gliding and will not crystalize between -30° up to 60°. This avoids the risk of stopping the gliding and protects skin from burning by the cold. There are no active ingredients in the gel. Inform your technician of any allergies before use.

 

CryoTherapy

What is Cryotherapy?

Cryotherapy is a fast and healthy process that accelerates the body’s natural recovery while improving overall well-being and energizing the body.

Cryotherapy is a completely dry, noninvasive, hyper-cooling process that can lower a person’s skin temperature by 30ºF during a session of up to 180 seconds. While inside the TITAN CryoCabin™, the entire body is enveloped by hyper cold air pulsating at a temperatures below -220ºF.

How Safe is Cryo?

Specifically, when using a ClubCryo CryoCabin you will have the safest experience possible. We’ve taken great measures implementing advanced technology for client safety. In fact, no other equipment on the planet is as safe! For additional safety, protective gloves, socks, undergarments, and slippers are worn to protect sensitive areas. During a session, a client’s head is above the top rim of the cabin to allow constant communication with the cryo-tech.

Does cryotherapy hurt?

No. Where an ice bath has direct contact with the skin and can be painful, cryotherapy is a dry, indirect contact. Due to the session only being three minutes max, the session is very tolerable. Towards the end of the session, you may get a ‘pins and needles’ sensation which disappears immediately after the treatmen

What do I wear to my appointment?

Cryotherapy is a dry, cold process, so upon checking into your appointment, you will enter a changing room and disrobe. ClubCryo provides socks, slippers and gloves for our clients to ensure no residual moisture is touching the skin. Gentlemen are required to wear undergarments, and everyone is required to wear the socks, slippers and gloves provided by ClubCryo

How many treatments should I do?

It is recommended that you come 5 consecutive days each month to experience the maximum recovery benefits. After those 5 consecutive days have been completed, your treatments should be spaced further apart to maintain and improve on your results (twice every week). The usage depends upon your reasons for utilizing Cryotherapy .

How do I feel after a cryotherapy session?

Your external skin temperature warms up within five minutes of exiting the machine. The immediate effects from each session typically last for six to eight hours. Cryotherapy stimulates the body to release endorphins, which are the hormones that make you feel good and energetic. Most clients report a better night’s sleep after just one session!

Who should not use Whole Body Cryotherapy?

What are the risks of whole body cryotherapy?

There are minimal risks associated with Whole Body CryoTherapy, ClubCryo provides all guests with clean socks, slippers and gloves that protect the more temperature-sensitive extremities such as your hands and feet, which eliminates the risk of frost bite. Additionally, moisture-stripping wipes are provided to remove any moisture or lotion from our guests’ body before starting the session, which prevents rashes or freezer burn. Guests may experience some redness on their skin, but this will subside shortly after the treatment.

 

Compression Therapy

How does it work?

ClubCryo compression technology speeds up your body’s natural healing processes by enhancing blood flow to your muscles to facilitate cellular repair and protein synthesis, boosting lymphatic drainage to relieve inflammation and reduce swelling, and mobilizing waste products such as lactic acid and excess fluids. What you’ll notice is less stiffness and soreness, as well as increased mobility and flexibility.

It’s important to note that the speed at which you recover involves several factors, such as your age, level of fitness, sleep, and diet. No matter your situation, however, the Rapid Reboot recovery system utilized by ClubCryo can significantly cut down your recovery time. Rapid Reboot was based on existing medical technology that employs dynamic compression. Years of medical research and application have proven the benefit of dynamic compression. As a result, intermittent compression devices are ideal for athletes who must constantly recover and heal as they push their bodies to new limits.

When should I use it?

Rapid Reboot is ideal right after a workout, race, or event, especially after a long, arduous one. However, you can use the boots after a long day, anytime your legs are feeling sore, or whenever you feel you need to reboot!

Another important thing to remember is that while Rapid Reboot can help with recovery after one use, helping your body recover is an investment of time and requires consistency. In other words, make a habit of using Rapid Reboot! Also, remember to eat well and get enough sleep. Dynamic compression is an important part of recovery, but it’s not the only part.

How long do I use it?

Rapid Reboot is offered in 20 minute sessions.

How often can I use it?

Rapid Reboot’s dynamic compression systems are safe to use multiple times a day, including before and after training sessions. For medical applications, consult your doctor on treatment protocols best suited for your medical needs.

What are the indications?

Our dynamic compression technology is ideal for post-workout recovery because it enhances blood circulation, removes lactic acid, and reduces swelling and inflammation. At the same time, Rapid Reboot has a variety of medical indications, including lymphedema, venous insufficiency, and venous thromboembolism prophylaxis. It can also be applied to other circulation-related issues that stem from varicose veins, diabetes, surgery, injury, etc. If you are interested in using Rapid Reboot for a medical condition, please talk to your doctor first about the benefits of intermittent pneumatic compression for your specific needs.

What are the contraindications?

While Rapid Reboot is safe to use for a variety of applications, please consult your doctor before using Rapid Reboot if you know or suspect you may have the following: deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism (blood clot) or edema, thrombophlebitis, inflammation of the skin (e.g., erysipelas, cellulitis), ischemic vascular disease, severe peripheral neuropathy, or related issues and complications.

Who can use it?

Rapid Reboot is ideal for every athlete at every level in every sport: triathlons, Crossfit, weightlifting, cross-country, track, cycling, gymnastics, marathons, basketball, football, baseball, golf, etc. However, because the system promotes healthy blood flow, a wide variety of people can use it, from teachers who are on their feet all day to truckers who sit all day. Although devices like Rapid Reboot have a variety of medical applications, consult your doctor if you have concerns or if you have had a blood clot or stroke. He or she may advise you to use Rapid Reboot differently based on your individual medical needs.
