We’re a premier medical spa with two beautiful locations in the Bay Area, and proud to specialize in various wellness services to benefit both men and women of Northern California.

Sculptology always strives to be transparent to our clients, so read on to understand the potential dangers of cryotherapy.

What is Cryotherapy? 

Cryotherapy is a treatment that involves exposing the body to freezing temperatures for a short period. At Sculptology, we use a state-of-the-art cryotherapy chamber. While it’s a revolutionary treatment, the science behind the benefits is based on centuries and centuries of knowledge about the power of freezing temperatures to treat illness and ailments and improve health because it causes increased circulation.

Cryotherapy often treats conditions like arthritis, psoriasis, migraines, fatigue, fibromyalgia, and muscle pain. Still, it can boost your metabolic rate, improve sleep, stimulate collagen production, strengthen your immune system, and release endorphins to improve your mood. Studies have also shown that it can help improve skin tone and cellulite appearance. There are indeed so many benefits to cryotherapy at Sculptology.frosty ice cubes

What Are the Dangers of Cryotherapy? 

There are also some risks when it comes to cryotherapy, which is why it’s important to go to a trusted provider like the team at Sculptology.

>Here are a few of the dangers of cryotherapy.

  • Cryotherapy can cause frostbite. The temperatures used in cryotherapy are often below freezing; if you are not careful, you can sustain frostbite. Frostbite is when the skin and tissues freeze, leading to permanent damage. Be sure to follow the instructions of an expert cryotherapy technician carefully to avoid this.
  • There is a risk of asphyxiation. When you undergo cryotherapy at Sculptology, you will be enclosed in a chamber where the temperature is controlled. There is a risk of asphyxiation if the chamber is not ventilated properly, so if you go somewhere other than Sculptology, be sure to ask about the chamber’s ventilation.
  • You may experience adverse side effects from cold temperatures. Some people may experience negative side effects from exposure to the cold temperatures used in cryotherapies, such as headaches, shortness of breath, and nausea. Be sure to discuss your concerns with our team before undergoing treatment.
  • There is a risk of burns. The temperatures used in cryotherapy are often very extreme, and there is a risk of sustaining burns if instructions are not followed carefully.
