Unlike Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC), Local Cryotherapy is typically used to target specific pain areas, rather than the body as a whole. It delivers all of the benefits of WBC, but locally. Patients frequently combine the Whole Body Cryotherapy with this treatment. This is the way used to treat specific problem areas. Local Cryotherapy uses temperatures as low as -240 degrees F. A Local Cryotherapy treatment targeting a specific part of the body only needs to be conducted for about 5-10 minutes.

Local Cryotherapy is beneficial when used for reducing inflammation, cellulite reduction, and athletic recovery for specific injured areas. It can relieve many types of pains caused by things such as a swollen injury or even the effects of a surgery. While Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) treatments are effective at relieving inflammation resulting from acute pain. Some parts of the body may require more treatments than the others, due to the seriousness of the injury. These are the situations in which Local or “Spot” Cryotherapy can be of a tremendous benefit to an injured patient.
Local Cryotherapy is often used to treat very specific pain points. It can provide a very relaxing, wrinkle-releasing facial. Localized Cryotherapy is effective in skin rejuvenation, minimizing pain, treating wounds and swollen joints, as well as for promoting healing. Even after just one or two treatments, many of our patients observe wrinkle reduction and smaller pores. It has also been effective in relieving headaches. Local Cryotherapy can be applied to any particular injured part of the body such as necks, ankles, feet, shoulders, elbows, and knees.
