The Cryofan CF-04 and Cryofan CF-05 local cryotherapy devices are produced by Cryomed, along with the Cryofan CF-04+ medical version.

These versions vary in terms of size, weight, and design, but they are all useful for their intended functions. They work very well for localised ailments such as skin damage, muscular strain, ligament sprains, back, knee, elbow, and other joint aches. They can also be used for cryotherapy facials.


A local cryotherapy device is used to stimulate the skin on the face and neck with the help of liquid nitrogen steam during a cryotherapy facial. Local cryotherapy allows you to target a specific location with the cold, as opposed to whole-body cryotherapy, which affects the entire body (excluding the head). The cosmetics and healthcare industries both make extensive use of this capability.


The idea behind a cryotherapy facial is to apply extremely low temperatures for a brief period of time to a specific area of the face or neck.

Cryo facials sessions result in:

  • contraction of the muscles
  • increased blood supply to the treated area
  • reduction of inflammation
  • promotion of collagen formation
  • quickening of cell regeneration

These outcomes made cryotherapy facials quite well-liked among celebrities. Cryo facial sessions have the following primary advantages:

  • anti-aging effect: The skin appears smoother and more radiant as a result of increased collagen formation and blood circulation. Compared to conventional treatments like botox and herbal supplements, it is kinder and more efficient.
  • In a natural method, it aids in the reduction of wrinkles and fine lines.
  • aid with many skin disorders like acne, eczema, and psoriasislocal cryotherapy lessens skin redness, irritation, and pain.
  • Positive stress increases the creation of endorphins, which lifts your mood.

During the therapy, which lasts 8 to 10 minutes, cold air is delivered to the neck, face, and scalp. For many of the patients, the procedure is even enjoyable because it is painless. Some people may feel “pins and needles,” which soon goes away following the procedure.

The impact starts right away and lasts for up to seven days. However, it is preferable to undergo cryo facial sessions every 3–4 weeks for a more stable outcome.


Researchers have explained the phenomenon around cryotherapy’s effects and how it actually functions. In actuality, the therapeutic and regenerative mechanisms that the cryotherapeutic procedure, which involves chilling the patient’s body surface, activates within the body, rather than the procedure itself, itself extending the restorative effect.

It should be noted that during a cryotherapeutic procedure, the temperature of the nitrogen vapour and air mixture that surrounds the patient’s body reaches -150 to -180°C, while the patient’s skin temperature is reduced to +5 to +12°C. The body boosts healing mechanisms and completely engages the immune system in response to the stressful effects of cold. Endorphins and other anaesthetics are released into the blood, and the activity of histamine and other inflammatory mediators, such as serotonin, decreases.

Therefore, cryotherapy generally has a pronounced anaesthetic effect and reduces the sensitivity of skin receptors and the conductivity of nerve fibres.

The development and training of the immune system is the primary benefit of cryogenic therapy in cryosaunas or other devices, according to research. To be more exact, advancements in the treatment of numerous diseases are made possible by the strengthened immune system. The body can recognise and get rid of the disorders that caused the disease on its own when the environment is right, thanks to a combination of the procedure’s key technological parameters, which include the gas temperature, the cooling time, and the area of skin that comes into contact with cryogenic gas.

In other words, these are the reasons rather than the symptoms that we frequently treat with traditional therapy. A person voluntarily recovers from the sickness and permanently eliminates the chance of a recurrence.


While local cryotherapy has been utilised as a form of treatment for ages, whole body cryotherapy only recently gained popularity. We all applied ice to our bodies to lessen pain or inflammation. The advantages of localised cryotherapy are identical to those of whole-body cryotherapy, but they only apply to a single location.

The idea behind local cryotherapy is to apply extremely low temperatures for a brief period of time to a specific area of a patient’s body. Contracting the muscles during this process increases blood flow to the treated area, reduces inflammation, and hastens cell regeneration. Localized cryotherapy boosts athletic performance, provides long-term pain relief, decreases inflammation, speeds up muscle recovery, enhances blood flow and skin tone, minimises scars, lowers wrinkles and fine lines, and increases blood circulation.

The target area is exposed to dry, cold air for only 8 to 10 minutes during a localised cryotherapy treatment. After a session, the body starts to warm up, and the injured area starts to receive oxygenated blood again. This operation can be performed externally on any area of the body, including the neck, shoulders, wrists, elbows, hips, ankles, knees, and heels. Acne, scars, psoriasis, eczema, and other skin conditions can all be reduced with localised cryo treatments.

The impact starts right away and lasts for up to seven days.


Compared to an ice bath, whole-body cryotherapy is significantly different.

In cryotherapy, dry cold air is utilised in place of cold water, triggering cold sensors on the skin’s surface rather than the deeply penetrating cold of an ice bath, prompting the body to react.

In a conventional ice bath, the cold water forces the body to overexert itself to keep the skin’s surface from freezing by warming the blood in its core for delivery to dilated arteries in outer tissue.

The key advantage of cryotherapy is that it “tricks” the body into using superior healing processes without the piercing cold, whereas in an ice bath your body genuinely feels like it is freezing.

The end result is a more comfortable healing process because you never spend more than three minutes with your body exposed to air during a complete body cryotherapy treatment.


We must first comprehend how cryotherapy functions in order to respond to the question “Who requires complete body cryotherapy?” A cryosauna, a device big enough for a patient to be placed inside and subjected to temperatures as low as negative 170 degrees Celsius, is needed for the complex procedure of whole body cryotherapy. The patient is only dressed in underpants, safety slippers, and gloves during the process. This kind of cryotherapy has a significant impact on the patient by improving blood flow to internal organs and enriching the blood with oxygen and essential enzymes.

Professional athletes from a variety of sports, fitness experts, medical and rehab facilities, as well as other organisations that help people recover from trauma or extremely stressful times, all use cryosauna therapy. Not only can cryotherapy treatment promote patient recovery, but it also effectively treats a variety of chronic illnesses and ailments.

In summary, cryotherapy chamber therapy has a host of health advantages including improved blood flow, accelerated cellular repair, pain alleviation, and reduced stress.


The device used for whole-body cryotherapy is the cryotherapy machine. Additionally known as a cryosauna or cryo chamber. The distinctions between a cryosauna and a cryo chamber are discussed here.


The liquid nitrogen that operates cryotherapy equipment is pumped into them from liquid nitrogen dewars.

Nitrogen that is liquid at a low temperature (195.79 °C or 320 °F) is referred to as liquid nitrogen. Industrial production of it involves fractional distilling liquid air. It is a clear liquid with low viscosity that is frequently used as a coolant. It is particularly helpful in a variety of applications, primarily as an open-cycle refrigerant, due to its ability to sustain temperatures well below the freezing point of water.

Nitrogen, which makes up 78% of the air we breathe, is not harmful in and of itself. But cryotherapy centres that perform numerous operations each day need to have sufficient ventilation. The oxygen content in a compact, poorly ventilated space can drop below 20% (by volume), which sooner or later can result in palpable discomfort or even unconsciousness.

Individuals are required to wear basic protective clothes during the cryo session in order to prevent injuries caused by the cold: dry socks and slippers, shorts for men, and a combination of shorts and a top for women. The effects of cryotherapy equipment’ extremely low temperatures are still being studied, but most findings indicate that whole-body cryotherapy has a stronger stimulant impact than its localised counterpart.


There are two ways to provide nitrogen to cryotherapy machines: either from smaller, pressurised containers or from non-pressurized Dewar tanks. Dewar tanks that are not pressurised are more manageable and smaller, while pressurised tanks are more expensive but heavier. All of the characteristics of these two types of nitrogen feed are described here.

Today’s cryotherapy equipment is often designed with user comfort in mind. This includes plush inside padding, cutting-edge security measures, wireless controls, touch-sensitive information displays, and even an integrated stereo system.

The extra features and available options affect the cryotherapy equipment’s pricing.

How frequently do you currently undergo cryotherapy and cryotherapy treatments, and do you need to do so more frequently in order to achieve the greatest results? While there are benefits from only one session, it is generally advised to use the cryosauna for up to three minutes, one to five times each week. The answer depends largely on your goals for the therapy and how new you are to it, just like with everything else. For instance, professional sportsmen can receive cryotherapy numerous times throughout each game.

You should first speak with a doctor if you wish to receive cryotherapy for a specific issue, such as weight loss, wart removal, or any other issue. Sometimes, even a small number of sessions might produce beneficial results.


Cryosauna use should consist of 1-2 weekly sessions for immune system boosting.

You should undergo cryotherapy procedures 2–5 times each week to lose weight.

You should engage in two to three sessions of cryotherapy each week for sports and fitness recovery.

Cryotherapy sessions should be received by athletes, professional athletes, two to five times per week.

You should receive 3-5 cryotherapy sessions each week for the treatment of chronic illnesses, injuries, and surgeries.
