While the cold, which can reach temperatures of -240 degrees Fahrenheit, can be surprising, especially for those who are new to treatment, it is not at all painful. In fact, many report an exhilarating rush and an instant energetic response.
In order to receive the full benefits of cryotherapy treatments, the cold air should touch about 90% of your bare skin. This means that Mend Cryotherapy provides you with socks, special gloves and slippers. Men should wear dry cotton briefs as well. Mend will provide shorts if needed.
During your first appointment, you should expect to spend about 15 minutes to a half an hour learning about our procedures and what to expect. We will take the time to answer any questions and learn about your exact circumstances. After your initial session, further treatments typically take about five to seven minutes.
Not at all! Our fully-trained technicians are experts in the field and are fully-trained in safety. There is no lock on the cryochambers’ doors and you can simply step out if you ever feel uncomfortable during treatment. In addition, there is nothing you need to do after a session and you can continue your normal activities with a renewed sense of vigor immediately after your treatment.
Depending on the condition of treatment, you should initially take 5 – 10 treatments in close succession (separated by one to two days, e.g. three times a week) to maximize your results. After that you can take fewer treatment spaced further apart to maintain and improve on your results (e.g. once every week or two weeks).
