Everything You Need To Know About Cryotherapy In Singapore



How Cryotherapy Can Help You Recover Quickly

Regular cryotherapy treatment can help reduce injury swelling and muscle inflammation, thereby relieving muscle pain. It can also improve recovery time, allowing you to get back to exercising sooner. But how does cryotherapy work? 

When the body is exposed to extremely cold temperatures, a natural survival mechanism is triggered within the body. This emergency response restricts blood flow to the injured area, which reduces swelling and muscle spasms, as well as functions as a natural anaesthetic to numb the pain. 

This also causes the body to release a host of body chemicals, including endorphins and adrenaline, which results in the heart pumping harder and increased blow flows, thereby helping with the healing process. While all this is happening, the cold temperature helps slow the athlete’s metabolism. Hence, decreasing the damage caused to the muscle and tissue.

Furthermore, continued usage of cryotherapy after exercise can enhance the concentration of Interleukin 6 (IL-6) – a protein known to stimulate the immune response – resulting in faster recovery times.

Lastly, it has been discovered that cryotherapy reduces Tumour Necrosis Factor alpha (TNF alpha), a substance which induces inflammation. When the presence of this protein is reduced, it minimises inflammation after a sports injury.

Benefits Of Cryotherapy For Sports Injuries

Expose your body to extreme cold so that its natural survival mechanism kicks in for:

  • Instant Pain-relief: At sub-zero temperatures, nerve signals are intercepted so that pain from injury or chronic conditions is alleviated.
  • Accelerated Recovery: Blood circulation is accelerated, and inflammation is reduced. Your blood is infused with oxygen, nutrients, and powerful healing enzymes.

Cryotherapy Effectively Treats:

✓  Muscle soreness

✓  Joint pain

✓  Back aches

CryoLift (Body Contouring)

What Is It?

CryoLift, and other forms of Cryolipolysis, utilise extremely cold temperatures to freeze and eliminate fat cells in your body. Rest assured that the cryotherapy treatment is safe and does not damage other cells and tissues in your body.

The aim of the treatment is to reduce the adipose tissue within your body by inducing cryolipolysis – the process of using cold temperatures to reduce fat deposits in specific areas of the body. These cryotherapy sessions are non-invasive and painless, so you will not require anaesthesia for the treatment. You also do not have to worry about neuropathy or scarring.

How does it work?

The cryotherapy sessions help reduce fat within your body by speeding up your metabolism. When you are exposed to extremely cold temperatures, your body is forced to consume the stored fat within to produce warmth and counteract the cold.

This process is referred to as cold-induced thermogenesis, and it has proven effective in reducing fat tissues in the long run, especially when combined with a well-balanced diet.

While these cryotherapy sessions alone are insufficient to trigger dramatic weight loss, they remain effective in helping the body burn calories. Studies have shown that the human body can burn up to 800 calories in 3 minutes thanks to the enhanced metabolic rate induced by the treatment.

So tap into this cutting-edge cold therapy today to effortlessly achieve:

  • Instant Body Sculpting: Eliminate fat by freezing fat cells completely so that they can be permanently flushed out of the body.
  • Sustained Weight Loss: Prompt your body to produce brown adipose tissue (BAT) that converts fat into energy. Increased blood circulation also boosts your metabolic rate so that you naturally burn calories faster throughout the day.
  • Noticeably Improved Cellulite: Support your body’s elimination of toxins and fats, and boost collagen production to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Target stubborn fats and cellulite in the:

✓  Abdomen

✓  Arms

✓  Back

✓  Chest

✓  Thighs


CryoLift (Facial)

What Is It?

Cryotherapy facial is a safe and effective treatment that utilises cryogenically cooled air to expose your skin surface to extremely cold temperatures, thereby stimulating your skin receptors. The cool air stimulates collagen production in the body and tightens skin pores. Rest assured that cryotherapy facial is completely safe and suitable for all skin types. The treatment delivers noticeable results, rejuvenating your complexion and leading to brighter and healthier-looking skin.

How does it work?

During the cryotherapy facial session, a controlled stream of cold air is applied to your face and neck area to trigger collagen and elastin production in the dermis. This enhances your skin’s capacity to rejuvenate and regain elasticity, thereby helping to even your skin tone and tighten the pores.

When your skin is exposed to cold temperatures from the cryotherapy sessions, your body’s natural defence system triggers, releasing endorphins and boosting blood circulation. This helps accelerate skin repair and rejuvenation, leading to a refreshing and younger-looking complexion.
