How Long Do the Effects of Cryotherapy Last?

Sculptology is excited to offer men and women of the Bay Area the option to be available to immerse themselves in our state-of-the-art whole-body cryotherapy chamber. Cryotherapy is an amazing alternative treatment option that can relieve various conditions, including pain, inflammation, and anxiety. But how long does the pain relief from cryotherapy last? Let’s take a look.

How Does Cryotherapy Work? 

Whole-body cryotherapy (WBC) is a brief exposure to frigid temperatures. At Sculptology, our cryotherapy chamber lowers the air temperature around the body to anywhere between -200°F and -320°F, and sessions last about 2-3 minutes.

Cold exposure triggers the release of endorphins, which can produce a feeling of euphoria. It also causes a release of adrenaline and other hormones that can boost energy levels and help the body burn calories.  Whole-body cryotherapy can treat arthritis, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, anxiety, and depression. Others use it for muscle soreness, inflammation, and even weight loss.

How Long Do the Effects of Cryotherapy Last?

It doesn’t take long to feel the effects of cryotherapy and to experience the benefits. With increased circulation, your capillaries will expand to deliver oxygen-rich and nutrient-dense blood throughout your body. Cryotherapy works by causing your body to go into survival mode because when exposed to such frigid temperatures, your body constricts blood vessels to preserve heat. This process causes a release of endorphins, which are hormones that block pain signals from the brain. As a result, you may feel an immediate reduction in pain and inflammation following a cryotherapy treatment. The energized effects of increased endorphins typically last between six to eight hours after treatment, but the more often you undergo treatment, the longer that endorphin lasts.

In addition, cold therapy triggers thermogenesis, which is when your body burns calories to produce heat. Thermogenesis boosts metabolism and can help you burn up to 500 extra calories daily for up to 2 weeks following a cryotherapy session.

When it comes to pain management, the length of time you feel the lasting effects of cryotherapy depends on the intensity of the treatment and the condition being treated. For example, if you receive cryotherapy for an injury, the pain relief may last a few hours. However, if you receive cryotherapy for arthritis, the pain relief may last a few days. In general, the more severe the condition, the longer the effects of cryotherapy will last.

To summarize, the lasting effects of cryotherapy are both short-term and long-term. You can expect to see immediate benefits like reduced pain and inflammation, as well as long-term benefits like increased metabolism. If you’re looking for a treatment that offers both short-term and long-term results, cryotherapy at Sculptology is worth considering!
