Cryogenic therapy has just become more accessible in Collin County. Cryo1one, the leading provider of whole body Cryotherapy in the metroplex, has just opened its new location in The Shops at Legacy in Plano. The Shops at Legacy location marks Cryo1one’s third location in DFW, among its Oak Lawn and Preston Royal locations in Dallas.

Guests of Cryo1one will stand in the cryo chamber for three minutes. While in the cryo chamber, guests will be exposed to temperatures ranging from -167 F to -202 F. The temperature of the external skin then lowers, stimulating receptors, which then activate a fight or flight response. Vasoconstriction occurs, a process in which the blood vessels narrow as a result of contraction of the vessels’ muscular walls. Blood then rushes to the core, protecting the vital organs.

After the cryotherapy session, the body will immediately begin to rewarm on its own. Vasodilation occurs, a process in which the body is replenished with newly oxygenated blood.

Cryogenic therapy is said to have many benefits, including relief of pain from joint disorders and migraines. It also helps kickstart the production of endorphins, helping to boost mood and overall happiness and alleviate fatigue and languor. Cryotherapy is also said to improve skin conditions like acne, psoriasis and cellulite.
