CryoFacial is a Cryogenic treatment, in which a controlled beam of vaporized liquid nitrogen is usedto freeze the skin of the face, scalp, and neck area. The CryoFacial is truly one of a kind. The coldnitrogen produces an instantaneous tightness in the skin, filling in fine lines and wrinkles. Collagen isactivated to produce more cells, causing skin to become more elastic over repeated use. Additionallyskin’s pore size is reduced, keeping toxins, dirt and grime out. The CryoFacial flushes away built uptoxins in the skin and sooths inflammation, eliminating dreaded puffiness.
A 2008 study involving 18 adults with mild to moderate levels of atopic dermatitis examined the efficacy of cryotherapy in reducing AD symptoms. Most of the participants experienced improvement in their condition.
A study found that exposing the sebaceous glands to a temperature of -8° Celsius reduced the number of sebocytes (sebum-producing cells), thus preventing excessive sebum production.
When you undergo cryotherapy facial, the intense cold air makes your blood vessels contract and then expand. This leads to increased blood flow to your skin and makes it look healthy and radiant.
The cold temperature of cryotherapy tightens your skin’s pores. This prevents the accumulation of dirt and bacteria in your pores.
The Cryo Facial treatment is non-invasive and pain free and works through means of Cryotherapy or “freeze therapy”. The skin is rapidly cooled, using a beam of vaporized liquid nitrogen, to well below freezing in a matter of minutes using a revolutionary ‘cryo-probe’.
This leads to a tightening of the microcirculation blood stream, known as vasoconstriction, and then dilation of blood vessels and capillaries which helps to flush toxins and impurities away from the skin. The process works to contract the skin and accelerate microcirculation which supports better oxygenation of dermal cells, encourages collagen production and helps to detox and rejuvenate the skin.
The treatment only takes 30-45 minutes and the results are immediate and there is generally no post treatment downtime or after effects. We generally combine the cryo facial with a deep cleansing. The Cryo Facial can be conducted as a one-off treatment but the best results will come with repeat applications.
Cryo Facial is great for those patients looking to stimulate collagen production, tightening, and radiance for the skin.
The Cryo Facial treatment is noninvasive so is generally seen as a very safe procedure.
Getting a cryotherapy facial 2-3 times a week for 2-3 weeks is recommended to repair damaged skin, treat the symptoms of a skin condition, or to get a youthful glow.
Yes, it helps reduce acne by tightening skin pores and minimizing excess sebum production.
