So I went under the ice some days ago, and it was an experience I will never forget. I remember seeing one of the ‘real housewives’ having the treatment, and me thinking how cool it would be to try it. I guess the universe was listening, and ordered the PR girls for Mozhgan Taheri Beauty Clinic to invite me in for a Cryotherapy session. For those who do not know, Cryotheraphy, also known as the healing power of ice, is the use of extremely low temperatures to reduce fat in body areas, improve skin tone, smooth facial wrinkles, reduces acne, relieves pain, injuries and muscle damage, decrease inflammation, and increase cell rejuvenation.The treatment originated from Japan, and the whole idea behind it, is the liquid nitrogen-based freezing technology on a concentrated area to trigger a physiological reaction to cold temperatures.
I went into the clinic with no expectations really, I just wanted to discover how it felt to go under the ice. After having my babies, my stomach did not completely go back to the way it use to be, the firmess disappered along with the bump (post pregnancy drama), so I jumped at the opportunity to try out this popular treatment, and destroy the excess fat cells in my belly. Did I succeed? Read on……..
The session lasted for about 35 minutes, the owner and therapist – Mozhgan Taheri made me feel relaxed, while massaging and contouring the left and right sides of my stomach(at separate times), with the ice-cold air at the same time. You can see how cold it was on the machine display below:
It was freezing, my stomach went numb after some minutes, I have ever felt such cold in my life, but it was not painful. I was comfortable all through the session, kept warm under the towels, and the room was well heated, which was good.
Overall, the treatment itself was great. I love the fact that it is non-invasive, pain killers were not required, and I could just go about my business as normal. Measurements or pictures were not taken before the treatment, so I am not 100% sure of how many inches I lost, but looking at it, I think I lost quite a few on both sides of the stomach, but it appeared to have moved to the middle, or it could just be me seeing things, lol. To achieve a noticeable difference, multiple sessions have to be carried out, and each session is priced around £100. It does not come cheap, but worth it if you can see the results.
If I have another opportunity to try this treatment, I would have it on my face, just to see how I look afterwards. That was my first choice, but decided to go for my stomach in the end.
So what are your thoughts? Have you had a Cryotherapy treatment before? Drop me a comment, let’s chat.
