What is cryotherapy?

I have a lot of flab going on after having four children and now that I am getting older, I know I would just magically have it disappear.

Cryotherapy is the use of cold to increase collagen production. In cryotherapy, you can slim, tone, or even achieve pain management or weight loss. If you happen to be rich enough, you can now even purchase your own cryotherapy equipment for use in your own home. In all reality, cryotherapy has been around for many years. You have the masks that are filled with liquid. After being refrigerated or frozen, you lay the mask over your eyes for several minutes to reduce puffiness and darkness that is around the eyes. A simple ice pack to take swelling down is also a form of cryotherapy. Bio-freeze is a gel that is applied to sore areas. It causes a sensation of cold and helps to relieve the pain and inflammation to the joint. This is also a form of cryotherapy. I am sure that many people have used TENS machines after having an injury. They even use the TENS machine in the chiropractor’s office and it is also a form of cryotherapy. Recently I was looking into a way to reduce the fat around my stomach. I have a lot of flab going on after having four children and now that I am getting older, I know I would just magically have it disappear. I saw an advertisement for a company that was using ice to sculpt the body. They put you in a stand up machine and you went into the machine naked. They quickly dropped the temperature down to a temperature that was well below zero and then brought the temperature back up. They said it was cryotherapy, but I thought it sounded like torture.
