What We Like about the cryoair mini
You can choose the right model for you. As we mentioned above, the cryoair mini is available in three models, allowing you to select a machine with the right features for your business. Localized machines are used in a variety of applications and venues—from beauty salons and medical facilities to training centers for professional athletes—and every business has different needs, so it’s good to have options.
It’s versatile. The cryoair mini is a highly versatile system, featuring numerous attachments and accessories that can be used to modify your system on the go. The 2-way articulated arm is especially convenient, acting as an extra hand to hold the hose at just the right angle while you focus on your client. Meanwhile, the varying nozzles allow you to deliver your client’s preferred airflow, while the glass plate is a great place to set your tools during treatment, turning the cryo machine into a table.
The accessories included here may seem like an ‘extra’ feature—but they’re no gimmick. Those who have administered localized cryotherapy know that it sometimes requires more hands than you have. Having some attachments to help hold the hose and extra tools allows you to focus on your customer or patient, so you can deliver the best possible experience.
It’s all-electric. Localized cryo therapy is a relaxing experience, especially when the patient feels safe (and you feel comfortable) knowing that your machine is nitrogen-free.
It has a very small footprint. Space is always one of the top priorities for businesses administering cryotherapy—probably because cryo machines tend to have a larger footprint. While localized machines are smaller, in general, the cryoair mini is particularly compact, with a vertical design and an optional glass tabletop that allows you to make the most of your space.
There’s a lot to like about the cryoair mini, from its versatile features to its accessories. But every business is different, and this product isn’t the right fit for everyone.
A Few Things to Keep in Mind
Energy consumption. As a cryo business owner, you should always factor operating costs into the overall ‘price’ of a machine (we can help you there). And while electric systems like the cryoair mini don’t require expensive nitrogen refills, they do consume significant energy. While the cryoair base model is a 650W machine, the premium model consumes slightly less (500W) while the turbo consumes more (850W).
Temperature. Which is better: nitrogen or electric? That all depends on the kind of experience you want to give your customers. As we mentioned above, electric is generally perceived as a safer technology. Plus, you don’t have to deal with the hassle of managing your nitrogen supplies. However, nitrogen-based systems tend to reach colder maximum temperatures than electric systems. For example, the Local Cryo Polar Bear (a nitrogen system) by VACUACTIVUS reaches temperatures as low as -256F, while the cryoair mini turbo reaches ‘only’ -40F and the base reaches a comparatively balmy -25.6F.
Treatment type. If you’re just starting out in the cryotherapy business, you’ll need to decide whether you’re going to offer full-body or localized cryotherapy. Machines like the cryoair mini exclusively offer localized, concentrated cold-air treatment. If your customers are looking for a full-body treatment, take a look at cryo chambers and saunas.
Before You Buy
Before you purchase any cryotherapy system—including the cryoair mini—you want to make sure it meets the unique needs of your business, including price, operational costs, maintenance procedures, size, features and other factors. With hundreds of machines on the market, searching for the right system can be overwhelming.
That’s why it’s essential that you partner with an expert. At Rutherford & Titan, our engineers have installed and serviced more than 350 systems—and worked with countless entrepreneurs to make the right decisions for launching and running a successful cryotherapy business. We offer unbiased, expert guidance and comprehensive service.
