Exploring the Difference: Nitrogen Cryotherapy vs. Electric Cryotherapy


Cryotherapy has gained significant popularity in the fitness and wellness industry, offering various benefits to its practitioners. As the demand for cryotherapy grows, it becomes crucial to understand the distinctions between the different cryotherapy methods available. Initially, nitrogen cryotherapy dominated the market, but advancements in technology have introduced electric cryotherapy as a safer and more efficient alternative. In this article, we will delve into the disparities between nitrogen and electric cryotherapy, focusing on the benefits of electric cryotherapy offered at Upgrade Labs.

Nitrogen Cryotherapy: The Traditional Approach

When cryotherapy first emerged, nitrogen tanks or Cryosaunas were commonly used to achieve the ultra-low temperatures required for the treatment. These systems utilized liquid nitrogen to cool the chamber, resulting in a forced air-cooling effect from the feet up. However, certain considerations need to be made when opting for nitrogen cryotherapy.

  1. Exposure to Harmful Gas: Nitrogen cryotherapy necessitates the individual keeping their head and chest above the treatment area to avoid inhaling the nitrogen. The gas can be dangerous when inhaled, limiting the cooling effect to specific body parts and potentially causing respiratory issues or light-headedness.
  1. Partial Body Cooling: As nitrogen chambers require the head to remain outside, the cooling effect is limited to the lower body extremities. Although still beneficial, partial cooling elicits fewer reactions throughout the entire body and may not fully activate the Central Nervous System (CNS).
  1. Safety Concerns: Nitrogen chambers pose some safety concerns, including the risk of forced air burns and potential respiratory issues. These risks stem from the use of liquid nitrogen, which must be handled carefully to ensure safe operation.

Electric Cryotherapy: A Safer and Comprehensive Approach

Electric cryotherapy harnesses technological advancements to provide a superior cryotherapy experience. Upgrade Labs, a prominent provider of electric cryotherapy, employs walk-in chambers that utilize refrigerated, oxygenated air to achieve ultra-low temperatures. Here’s why electric cryotherapy stands out:

  1. True Whole-Body Cooling: Unlike nitrogen cryotherapy, electric cryotherapy allows for complete body exposure to ultra-low temperatures in a refrigerated air chamber. This comprehensive cooling experience stimulates the CNS, resulting in more positive reactions throughout the body.
  1. Safety and Comfort: Electric cryotherapy chambers eliminate the need to inhale potentially harmful gases. The use of refrigerated air ensures a safe and comfortable environment for users, without the associated risks of respiratory issues or light-headedness.
  1. Increased Capacity: Upgrade Labs’ electric cryotherapy chambers can accommodate up to two individuals simultaneously. This enables a social experience, allowing friends or partners to undergo cryotherapy together, enhancing the overall enjoyment and support during the session.

Embrace the Power of Cold at Upgrade Labs

As cryotherapy gains prominence, the choice between nitrogen cryotherapy and electric cryotherapy becomes crucial. While both methods offer benefits, electric cryotherapy, as provided by Upgrade Labs, presents a safer, more comprehensive option, all while offering a social element to enhance the overall experience. Considering the differences highlighted, electric cryotherapy emerges as a superior option for those seeking the full potential of cryotherapy. Experience the ultimate in safety, comfort, and effectiveness by choosing Upgrade Labs for your cryotherapy sessions, where our state-of-the-art chambers deliver unparalleled whole-body cooling benefits!

    September 6, 2023 //

    SANTA MONICA, Calif. – With increasing consumer demand for AI-driven integrated performance and wellness services throughout the world, Upgrade Labs – the world’s first Human Upgrade™ Center and brainchild of Bulletproof Coffee founder Dave Asprey – is proud to announce it is licensed to sign franchise deals in Australia, and is actively looking for individuals with prior experience in launching a brand to become Master Franchisee Partner(s) to lead the expansion. This news is a huge step in Upgrade Labs’ growth, marking its first international expansion efforts outside the U.S and Canada.

    With successful centers operating in California, Idaho, and Utah, in addition to territories sold in Austin, TX, Charlotte, NC, Nashville, TN, Bellevue, WA, and Calgary, AB, Upgrade Labs looks to continue its development internationally. The brand is seeking Master Franchisee Partner(s) to lead the way in Australia.

    “The ability for us to enter Australia marks another tremendous milestone in achieving Upgrade Lab’s growth potential,” said Founder and CEO, Dave Asprey. “The ability to expand over-seas goes to show that biohacking isn’t just a trend, but a lifestyle that is being sought after by people all over the world. Australia is known for its strong interest in health and wellness, making it the perfect place to introduce Upgrade Labs and its revolutionary concepts.”

    Upgrade Labs was founded in 2017 by Dave Asprey with a mission to help people reach their highest levels of performance. Asprey coined the term biohacking, which is the art and science of using technology combined with the environment in order to take control of and better human biology. The brand helps its members reach their highest level of physical performance & restorative abilities through unique technologies, giving dramatically better results in less time than they would spend exercising the old way.

    Upgrade Labs locations offer innovative performance services like The Cheat Machine, providing a week’s worth of resistance training in just 15 minutes. They also provide unique recovery services, including The Big Squeeze, promoting water loss, body slimming, and toxin elimination. Members experience stronger immunity, reduced inflammation, increased energy, enhanced longevity, improved sleep, and more. Recently, Upgrade Labs added Cryotherapy, decreasing inflammation, boosting metabolism, and improving deep and REM sleep with extreme cold temperatures.

    “The technologies we offer are traditionally looked at as inaccessible to those outside of the highest status, such as billionaires, celebrities, or professional athletes,” said Asprey. “This is one of the things we look to change globally with our brand. Our services are accessible to everyone, giving more people the opportunity to work on themselves in a unique and different way. Just like Bulletproof®, Upgrade Labs and its international expansion is another step in my plan to Upgrade Humanity.”

    As the brand continues its franchise expansion, it is looking for single and multi-unit franchise partners in the US that are passionate about upgrading humanity and want to introduce biohacking into new communities. Including the franchise fee, the initial investment for an Upgrade Labs location range from $663,000 to $1,349,640 (USD). In Australia, Upgrade Labs is seeking individuals with prior experience in launching a brand (preferably in Australia) who can bring their expertise and insights to help successfully introduce Upgrade Labs to the market and beyond as a Master Franchisee Partner.

    The history of red light therapy dates back to the early 20th century when it was used to treat various medical conditions. In recent times, NASA’s research has shed light on the profound benefits of red and near-infrared light therapy, emphasizing its potential to enhance energy production within our cells. Scientific studies show that exposure to these wavelengths promotes muscle recovery, decreases inflammation, stimulates lymphatic drainage, and balances hormones. It’s the ultimate tool for better performance and health, helping you achieve healthier, younger-looking skin through collagen and elastin production.

    1. Boosts mitochondrial function: Red and infrared light stimulate cytochrome C oxidase (CCO) in our mitochondria, increasing ATP (energy) production. This boost in mitochondrial health empowers your cells to work more efficiently, promoting better overall health.
    2. Improves blood circulation: Enhanced blood flow is essential for delivering vital nutrients and oxygen to your skin cells, resulting in a healthy, radiant complexion.
    3. Reduces inflammation: Red light therapy has been shown to reduce inflammation, providing relief for skin conditions such as acne and rosacea.
    4. Improves immune system function: A well-functioning immune system is crucial for overall health, including skin health. Red light therapy supports immune function.
    5. Stimulates lymphatic drainage: Lymphatic drainage helps remove toxins from your body, resulting in clearer and healthier skin.
    6. Increases intracellular water: Proper hydration is vital for skin health. Red light therapy can increase intracellular water levels, contributing to better skin hydration.

    Longevity Light Face Panels: A Youthful Glow Awaits

    Upgrade Labs doesn’t stop at full-body therapy; we also offer Longevity Light Face Panels that target specific facial skin concerns. These panels provide targeted red light therapy for your face, delivering exceptional benefits:

    1. Reducing fine lines and wrinkles: Say goodbye to signs of aging as red light therapy stimulates collagen and elastin production, helping to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
    2. Improving skin texture and tone: Achieve a more even complexion by reducing redness, blotchiness, and other skin irregularities, such as rosacea.
    3. Reducing the appearance of scars: If you have scars or blemishes, red light therapy can help diminish their visibility, leaving you with smoother skin.
    4. Enhancing blood circulation: Improved circulation to the facial area ensures that your skin receives the nutrients and oxygen it needs to thrive.
