“You know, I have a very good attitude to any cryo-procedures,” says my friend, the owner of the Kraftway clinic, Victoria Roschaninova, who recently returned from detox from the Chenot clinic in Gabala. “But I dared to experience the cryosauna on myself only this year in Azerbaijan. This "institution" looked like a safe, which consists of three sections. First, you enter the first compartment for a minute, there is minus 10 degrees, then for a minute into the second, there is already minus 50, and finally - into the third compartment, where it is already minus 110 degrees. Entering the safe where you are locked, and even with such a freeze, is not an easy decision! But when it was finally over, I realized how cool it was, and decided not for one procedure, but for a whole course. If we talk about physical sensations, then immediately after leaving the cryosauna, a chill begins, which does not stop for 40 minutes,but then there is a feeling as if the body was completely restarted. And you look very good at the same time, the complexion is especially striking!"
Well, Vika, as always, turned out to be “in trend”. Today in big cities it is quite easy to find the right place to get a good freeze. The beauty world has ceased to say "antiaging" together, but a holy place is never empty - so why not talk about cryotherapy. Moreover, this word is not at all new and tested by generations, who at first timidly rubbed their face with ice cubes, then slept with open windows, after which the most desperate stepped into the ice-hole, and the cautious and tech-savvy ones went to beauty clinics.
"Fast freezing" is shown in the fight against excess weight and when modeling the figure
“Cryotherapy is cold treatment,” says Olga Shuppo, chief physician of the Grand Clinic network of cryomedicine. - The effect of such a physiotherapeutic procedure is based on the body's responses to hypothermia of the outer layer of the skin. It turns out such a short dosed microstress that improves metabolism in literally every cell. " "Fast freezing" shows very good results in the fight against excess weight and in the modeling of the figure. In Germany, there is now a real boom in CrioSculpting, or CoolSculpting: the mechanism of action understood by the Aryan mind and the results measured in centimeters have done their job. Scientists claim that with this procedure, the loss of kilograms is not due to energy consumption, but due to the normalization of metabolic processes and hormonal levels. Research has shown,that exposure to cold contributes to the preservation of the "saturation hormone" leptin in the blood, which reduces hunger and increases the effectiveness of any diet. For several years in Russia, the Zeltig cryolipolysis apparatus has been popular, stimulating the process of splitting fat cells and leading to a decrease in body volume.

Well, since Russia is famous for snow and frost, then it is quite logical to expect cryo-miracles from it. Which, in fact, happened with the advent of the Icequeen cryocapsule, developed by Russian scientists. “Our cryocapsule has a number of advantages over similar equipment, which made it so popular in the world,” explains doctor Olga Shuppo. - It provides uniform cooling of the whole body and completely eliminates the risk of burning the upper respiratory tract and lungs with cold nitrogen-air mixture. By acting on the body with extremely low temperatures (down to - 160 C °), we enter into a "dialogue" with the central nervous system, which gives the body a kind of "reset" effect. And this, in turn, activates the processes of self-healing, recovery and rejuvenation."
"Fashionable" facial procedures ─ cryoelectropharesis and aerocryotherapy
In winter, we usually change our facial treatment system. And it has nothing to do with the "film of moisturizers" (I hope no one believes in these horror stories anymore!). It's just that the temperature contrast between the street and the room disturbs the hydrobalance of the skin, which constantly has to adapt to a rapidly changing situation. Creams with rich textures perfectly solve this problem and from December to February they painlessly crowd out their lighter counterparts.
But cold in its pure form and under the supervision of a specialist is good for fabrics. It improves skin tone and elasticity, improves complexion. Cryomassage has long been practiced not only in clinics, but also in beauty salons. Good results are shown by "fashionable" cryoelectrophoresis of the face. Its essence lies in the fact that frozen drugs are delivered to the deep layers of the skin by means of a pulsating electric current. In just 20 minutes, you can solve many problems - relieve inflammation, normalize the action of the sebaceous glands, get rid of edema, tighten tissues. There will be redness, but where can we go without it? Frost after all …

Another effective facial treatment is aerocryotherapy. It uses liquid nitrogen as "dry" cold, which is sprayed under pressure using a special apparatus. Such blowing not only erases swelling and inflammation, but is also recommended by doctors as a recovery after mechanical injuries - scars, traces of acne removal, rough scars. Moreover, it is useful to do aerocryotherapy before masks, injections and peels - it increases the effectiveness of all subsequent manipulations.
