Revitalize your body and boost exercise recovery by chilling out—literally. Cryotherapy, also known as cold chamber therapy, is an excellent way to recharge your batteries and reduce inflammation. At Dr. Skin, you can receive localized or full-body cryotherapy, so you can immerse your body in the beneficial cooling effects and leave feeling refreshed.


What is Cryotherapy?

You know those people who take dips in freezing water? They are on to something. Cryotherapy is when extremely cold temperatures are used to reduce inflammation, pain, and other symptoms. There are localized and whole-body variations available.


What Does Cryotherapy Do?

Are you looking for a quick, easy way to boost muscle recovery and reduce pain? Then you may be interested in cryotherapy. When briefly exposed to freezing temperatures, your body receives some benefits. Your body is exposed to temperatures ranging from -130°F to -300°F. Such temperatures are achieved by pumping the chamber full of non-toxic nitrogen gas. While standing in the tank (or receiving a localized treatment), your skin temperature cools, blood is forced away from the peripheral to nourish the core more effectively, and the cold starts to ease various aches and pains.

You are not exposed to these cold temperatures for long. 2-4 minutes is really all you need to feel the revitalizing effects.

The Benefits of Cryotherapy

There are a number of reasons why you should consider trying cryotherapy, including:

  • Reduces inflammation and pain from exercise or injuries
  • Numbs nerve pain (generally with localized treatments)
  • Reduces migraine symptoms
  • Relieves arthritis pain
  • Helps relieve mood disorders
  • Aids in skin condition recovery
  • Zero downtime
  • Can be during your lunch break

Many athletes utilize cryotherapy to enhance their recovery and soothe aching muscles. Some even step into the cryo-chamber twice a day!

What to Expect During Cryotherapy

On the day of your appointment, come to the office ready to go. The Dr. Skin team will get you checked in and show you to either your room or to a cryotherapy chamber. Every session is conducted by a specialist who will remain close by throughout the duration of your appointment.


You will be asked to remove any excess clothing and put on gloves and socks to protect your extremities from the cold. When you step into the cryotherapy chamber, most of your body will be inside, leaving only your head exposed. It is fine to leave your hair down. Once the chamber is closed, cooled gas will be pumped in, super-cooling the interior in mere moments.


The cryotherapy will last about 2-4 minutes, depending on the level of coldness and what you are trying to treat.


Keep in mind that your first appointment may last a little longer, as you may have questions that need to be answered. Our team will also educate you on the entire process. After your initial appointment, sessions take a maximum of 10 minutes.

What Should I Wear?

The clothing you wear during your cryo session, the better the results. For that reason, we kindly ask that ladies wear a dry bralette or sports bra without any underwire or padding and underwear. For men, please wear dry briefs.

Additionally, please do not put on any body lotion or moisturizer one hour before your treatment. No metals or accessories can be worn below the neck.

You will be given thermal socks and gloves to be worn during the cryo session.

Are There Any Risks or Side Effects?

Cryotherapy is a low risk modality for soothing a variety of aches and pains. Most side effects are minor and consist of tingling, numbness, redness, or a slight irritation of the skin. However, these effects are temporary. Cryotherapy does expose you to very cold temperatures, and so you will need to be mindful of your fingers and toes (which is why we provide you with gloves and socks) to keep yourself from getting frostbite.

Cryotherapy should never be used for more than the recommended amount of time. In a cryo chamber, you should never be exposed to those freezing temperatures for longer than 4 minutes. If using localized cryotherapy, the time limit is 20 minutes.

Who is a Candidate for Cryotherapy?

Most people can utilize cryotherapy without any issues. Athletes or those who suffer from chronic arthritis pain may find cryotherapy to be extremely effective. Even those with mild inflammation can benefit.


Those with diabetes or nerve damage should avoid cryotherapy. If you are unsure of your eligibility, consult with a medical professional or the team at Dr. Skin. We can help you choose alternatives, if necessary.
