If you have had implants to augment your figure, you are no doubt cautious about anything that may cause the silicone to leak or become damaged. After all, not only do your silicone implants represent a significant investment, but damage may be disfiguring and harmful to your health.
Cryotherapy is definitely trending among those seeking ways to enhance their health and beauty, and you may be tempted to try it yourself. But is it safe for your implants?
Benefits of Cryotherapy
Whole body cryotherapy has many health and beauty benefits, including:
- Improved skin tone and texture
- Elevated metabolism
- Reduced puffiness and inflammation
- Removal of waste and toxins
- Elevated mood
- Increased energy
- Decreased joint and muscle pain
With the many benefits of cryotherapy, it is no wonder you want to give it a try.
Cryotherapy with Implants
When you enter the cryochamber, the temperature will rapidly drop, and your skin temperature will plunge below freezing. However, the freezing temperatures only affect your superficial skin and muscle cells, and do not penetrate to your implants. While the implants will become cooler, the temperature drop is not sufficient to disrupt or alter the material of your implants, and they will not freeze.
Nevertheless, your implants may remain cooler than normal as your body warms from the three minute cryotherapy session, and the surrounding tissue may remain cool as well, similar to using a gel ice pack. However, the cooling effect will be short-lived, and your body and implants will soon return to normal.
While you always have the option of covering your implants with a layer of clothing, it is not necessary to do so. Furthermore, if your implant surgery is recent, cryotherapy can help your body heal, reducing pain and inflammation and promoting nutrient and oxygen delivery to the affected tissues.
