Cryotherapy For Fat Loss – How It Works

Cryotherapy has quickly become one of the go-to techniques for fat loss among fitness professionals and many consumers alike, being one of the few techniques which simultaneously burns calories, lowers body fat levels and enhances muscle tone – not to mention being safe, painless and more effective than many other techniques. But to maximize its efficacy during treatment sessions it’s essential to understand its workings so you can maximize results.

Cryotherapy for fat loss is an easy process. Cryotherapy involves subjecting certain tissues in the skin and body to extremely cold temperatures – whether whole body cryotherapy (WBC) or targeting specific areas such as the chin, waistline, hips/flank (“love handles”) and upper arms. Cryosauna therapy treatments take place inside a tube-like device known as a Cryosauna. As you lay in this machine, room temperature air is pumped directly into your body while nitrogen mist spraying reduces temperature even further – the entire process should last no more than three minutes and average skin temperatures typically decrease by 10 deg C. A trained medical grade therapist remains with you during the session to monitor it all and help manage core temperatures that remain steady during treatment.

Cryotherapy not only aids weight loss, but it can also reduce inflammation and swelling in the treated area – an excellent choice for individuals suffering from rheumatoid arthritis or other diseases.

Studies demonstrate that whole-body cryotherapy significantly decreases BMI in both healthy and overweight women, likely through increasing plasma irisin concentration and decreasing interleukin-6 production – two components associated with improved metabolic syndrome.

Cryolipolysis, commonly referred to as fat freezing, is a noninvasive procedure designed to eliminate localized fat deposits in areas such as the stomach, flanks, hips, thighs and neck. This technique freezes fat cells before disintegrating them for natural flushing away in one to three months by the body itself.

Cryolipolysis treatment starts by applying an allergy-friendly gel onto your skin that can tolerate cold temperatures. Once applied, a technician uses a hand piece designed specifically to isolate fat cells in targeted areas. You will feel pulsing sensations similar to high-pressure massage during and after this process; once complete you may return to normal life.

Cryotherapy treatments should be scheduled over multiple sessions to achieve desired results. The number of treatments will depend on the size and quantity of fat that needs to be lost, though most clients need between 2-6 treatments to see visible progress. It’s best to combine your treatment with regular exercise and healthy diet for maximum effect; Muscle Lab clients have reported regular cryotherapy sessions helped them lose up to 5 pounds every month!
