Cryosauna is a sauna in reverse. In it, the effect on the body is carried out not by heat, but by cold.
Cryosauna is not only one of the most effective methods of dealing with the cosmetic problems of our body, in particular, cellulite. This is a storehouse of «usefulness» from various fields of medicine.
What it is?
The procedure goes as follows. The patient is placed in a special cabin (the whole body up to the neck with a minimum amount of clothing), where the surface tissues of the body are briefly exposed to liquid nitrogen (cold). The temperature during exposure drops from -20°C to -160°C. The decrease is carried out within 15 seconds, and after that the temperature remains unchanged. The duration of one exposure period is about 1-3 minutes.
The effectiveness of the procedure is achieved only if the surface of the skin is cooled to 0°C. For the skin, such hypothermia is safe, but at the same time, nerve endings give powerful impulses to the brain. Accordingly, blood circulation increases, the tone of the whole organism increases, and the existing disorders of the body are regulated.
When carrying out the cryosauna procedure, it is necessary to follow the following rules:
- the procedure is carried out at least two hours before meals
- maximizing the area of exposed skin (minimum clothing)
- the interval between visits should be ten to twenty minutes
- it is not recommended to inhale nitrogen vapors
After a properly performed procedure, a blush appears on the skin, a slight burning sensation may be observed. The feeling of coolness smoothly flows into warmth throughout the body.
Cryosauna is repeated up to 4 times per session. It is recommended to carry out from 10 to 20 procedures, the cycle is up to 25 days (depending on the goals and indications).
