The cryotherapy is a one of kind treatment, non-invasive and non-surgical cosmetic therapy that lowers body temperature up to -110 degrees (based on the patient). The icy treatment involves three whole minutes inside a -110 celsius that shocks the body into a range of benefits including muscle relaxation and pain reduction, skin tightening, collagen production and calorie burning. Less than three minutes of the procedure can result in a flood of benefits, so many that it’s not possible to list down.
Our Lifestyle-Editor Majid experienced CRYO at Iwona Speciality Clinic in Jumeirah.
After a warm welcome in this well-decorated house where you dont feel in a clinic I met a very profesional physiotherapist with who I filled out forms about my health condition.
Afterwards, they introduced me to the CRYO machine by explaining everything about the process and benefits of the procedure. The Cryoair by Mecotec is a double room where you can fit up to 3 people.
I entered a first room where the temperature was -60 degrees where I stayed for 1 minute, then I entered the second room where I could stay 2 minutes maximum at -110 degrees. As it was a first time I only managed to be in for 1min30.
I really loved the fact that you can chose the music to play in the room and ensure you are dancing and moving for a better blood circulation.
Inside the chamber, the effect wasn’t as harsh as you would expect, there isn’t the ‘pain’ or shock of an ice bath but you do get the extreme cold experience, just in a more pleasant way.
+ : The clinic, staff and quality of service are amazing. After the treatment I left feeling energized, revitalized and refreshed.
– : I could not find much except the fact that you have to commit long term for optimal results.
