Apart from these minor treatments on a localised scale, Cryotherapy Manchester clinics offer different treatments for the relief of muscle pain, sprains and swelling to soft tissue following damage or surgical procedures, enabling a range of treatments including ice packapplicationor total body immersion in ice baths – this is sometimes called cold therapy, up to the use of an actual cryotherapy chamber UK. Whole-body cryotherapy treatment involves exposing the client to extremely cold dry air at a temperature below −100 °C for a period of time of two to four minutes only. Two methods may be used to achieve these sub-zero temperatures, either liquid nitrogen or refrigerated cold air. The client stands within the chamber and wears only light clothing, shorts for males and shorts and a crop top for females, with gloves, ear covering and a mask to protect the nose and mouth, plus dry shoes and socks. These coverings are worn to minimise the risk of cold-related injury.

Not every clinic or spa has these full facilities, it is easy to check via the PamperTree listings whether there is one in your locality, enter the town name or area if you are searching for “cryotherapy chamber near me”. Athletes and sportspeople sometimes use cryotherapy as often as twice a day, but the average client may use it once and then visit regularly for a series of treatments. For use of the cryotherapy chamber, cost may vary, averaging at around £50 per session and sometimes considerably cheaper for two people using the chamber together, a group of sessions booked in advance will bring the cost down and some clinics offer a monthly subscription, from a single session to unlimited usage.

As with all types of therapy, the client needs to discuss with the practitioner their full medical history to ensure that this is a safe therapy for them, clients who suffer from diabetes or any other condition which affects their nerves are not suitable for cryotherapy as it is likely that they may not be able to fully feel the effect, which could potentially result in further nerve damage.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Cryotherapy in Manchester

What is cryolipolysis?

Cryolipolysis is a non-surgical weight loss procedure. While performing cryolipolysis, the therapist will make your body get rid of excess bad through controlled application of cooling. He will break down the fat cells by exposing them to extremely cold temperatures. You can get cryolipolysis to destroy over 90% of fat cells over three to four weeks without undergoing surgeries.

How does cryolipolysis work?

Cryolipolysis makes you lose weight by breaking down fat cells using cold temperature. While performing this non-surgical weight loss procedure, the therapist will destroy the fat cells by exposing them to extremely cold temperatures for 35 minutes to 95 minutes. The cold temperature will destroy the fat cells without affecting your skin and tissues. Your body will get rid of the destroyed fat cells naturally through the lymphatic system. 

Why should I get cryolipolysis as an alternative to fat reduction surgeries?

While undergoing fat reduction surgery or liposuction, you have to focus extensively on reducing and managing a slew of health risks – bleeding, infections, fluid accumulation, skin sensitivity, and damage to muscles, lungs, nerves, and blood vessels. You can easily avoid these side-effects and complications by breaking down fat cells through a non-surgical procedure like cryolipolysis. While performing cryolipolysis, the therapist will destroy fat cells using cold temperature without affecting the skin and tissues. Also, cryolipolysis, unlike fat reduction surgery, does not have any serious or long-term side-effects.

Does cryolipolysis have any serious or long-term side effects?

Cryolipolysis helps you to get rid of stubborn fat by destroying fat cells without causing any harm to the skin and tissues. But the therapist will expose the targeted areas to extremely cold temperatures for several minutes during the nonsurgical weight loss procedure. Hence, you will experience swelling and soreness during and after the cryolipolysis session. Also, some people experience mild pain after the cryolipolysis session. 

What aftercare instructions shall I follow after the cryolipolysis session?

Several studies have highlighted the effectiveness of cryolipolysis in reducing excess and stubborn fat by 10% to 15%. But you can make the nonsurgical weight loss treatment more effective only by following simple aftercare instructions like keep your diet balanced, drink plenty of water, exercise regularly, and reduce alcohol and caffeine intake.

Will my weight reduce immediately after the cryolipolysis session?

While performing cryolipolysis, the therapist destroys or breaks down fat cells using extremely cold temperatures. The fat cells destroyed permanently during the nonsurgical procedure are eliminated from the body naturally and gradually through the lymphatic system. Hence, the shape of your body will change and your weight will reduce gradually over the next few weeks. You will notice the results of cryolipolysis only after about three to four months.

How often should I get cryolipolysis?

You must remember that the efficacy of cryolipolysis varies from one person to another. A patient normally needs one to three sessions of cryolipolysis to get rid of unwanted fat from various parts of the body. However, you will notice a decline in your weight only after three to four months after the cryolipolysis sessions. It is always important to decide the frequency and schedule of cryolipolysis treatments by consulting the therapist.
