Cold is the new hot! You may have heard… the ultimate beauty trend is being locked-up from 1 minute and 30 seconds to 3 minutes in a cold cabin, down to temperatures of -120°C and -180°C!
Cryotherapy is based on the principles of extreme shock: the idea is to flash-freeze your body so that it rushes blood to your internal organs in order to regulate temperature, eventually picking up nutrients that have lazily been kept in your body. Once you return to room temperature, oxygen-rich blood pumps through your entire system, stimulating your immune system and reducing inflammation.
Already popular with top athletes, this technique boosts blood circulation, relaxes muscles, eliminates pain and fatigue. And since in its fight against the cold, the body starts to burn calories, it can have the added bonus of a slimming effect. Only minutes after the first session , the muscle tone is enhanced, the skin is firmer and you are in a euphoric mood.
