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.
*Treatment was offered in exchange of a review.
I’ve never had the treatment but often wondered if it worked. I too have tummy issues post baby… *sigh*. That’s probably the area I’d want treated too. x
Most of us are stuck with the post baby issue, lol.. Oh well.
This seems like an interesting treatment and one I haven’t heard of so thanks for explaining it x
It is quite interesting. Thanks for reading Rhian.
This sounds interesting but I don’t think I could ever do it – I HATE the cold!! I’ll just have to make peace with my ‘mummy tummy’ 🙂
Lol…I guess the treatment is not for everyone.
Congrats on the opportunity Stella.
I believe a section may not be enough.
Maybe try one more time to see what the results will be.
For me, ice is a no no. Will stick to exercise ☺☺
Yea, the therapist said I will be needing about 6ish.
Great review and very well explained… I never knew of this treatment but I can see how it would benefit.
I’ve had an issue with acne and my dermatologist too said icing is one of the best things for aggravated inflamed skin.
Would love to know if you saw a difference and if you’d recommend this treatment ☺
Love from India
Thanks for reading. You would need multiple sessions before you can achieve desired results. I had only 1, so not too sure, but I think there was a small change on the areas treated.
Funny you should post this, because Milos wants us to do this in Bratislava! Great review, thanks. 😀
Oh wow. Like minds eh. Enjoy it.
I have extreme muscle/bone issues in particular in my back and shoulders and would love to try this to see if it works. Improving skin tone is a bonus for me too.
Try this treatment if you can, it may do the trick Ana.
This sounds really interesting. I’ve always wondered about trying cryotherapy – I may have to try it now after reading this x
Give it a try, I enjoyed it.
This is absolutely fascinating, I love the sound of treatments like this and it is right up my street too x
I love reading your posts about all these procedures, it’s a different world to mine!
It was quite fascinating to be honest. Thanks for reading.
This sounds like such an interesting procedure, I would definitely give it a go!
You should Rebecca.
Wow! Never heard of this one, that’s like £600 to achieve desired results? Err I will get a personal trainer instead …lol
What an interesting treatment I have never heard of it.
It is so fascinating.
What would it do to your face? Do you know?
It smooths wrinkles, if any, improve skin tone, reduce acne, and so on…..
sounds so good!!
This sounds really interesting I am not sure I would be brave enough though!
It is, doesn’t hurt at all.
Oh I haven’t heard of this before – i think I would definitely take cold over hot treatments, I might have to give this a try. x
It is quite fascinating Sarah.
Oh my!!!! I certainly could do with trying this for beauty benefits such as the fat and wrinkles but also because I have rheumatoid arthritis and very swollen joints at time that also causes stiffness and pain
However, I don’t like the cold snd really don’t think I’d be brave enough
Am sure you will be fine. Sounds scary but it is really not.
I haven’t heard of this – I absolutely hate the cold so can’t imagine it is for me! I do have a very wobbly tummy though! Kaz x
Don’t we all, lol…
Hmm, I’d never heard of this treatment before, it sounds pretty interesting. I wonder how many treatments I need on my tummy though 😉
I was told I would need about 6 treatments.
I’d never heard of this before but the results sound incredible! Asian beauty treatments are a wonder. Wish this wasn’t so pricey :/
Yea they are, but pricey. I wish it was not the case too.
Hmmmmm!! Now this sounds VERY interesting!
I don’t know if I could handle the cold – I literally HATE the cold but if it helps I’m all for it.
I take my hat off to you 😀 Thanks so much for sharing
Thanks for reading Charlotte. It was fun x
