Important Facts About Cryotherapy For Face


  • In a cryotherapy facial, liquid nitrogen (or dry ice) is pumped all over your face for 2-3 minutes. We find this much less effective than a applying the cold directly to your face as is done in a Cryoskin facial. A Cryoskin facial uses warm and cool temperatures delivered by a machine that is similar to an ultrasound wand to widen blood vessels, thus increasing blood flow. By increasing oxygen supply, the result is a boost in collagen production, reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, shrinking of pores and improvement of skin elasticity. It is a quick and natural way to improve the skin’s appearance and achieve a healthy glow.

What Is Cryoskin?

Cryoskin is a revolutionary machine from Italy, which uses heat and cold to reduce fat cells and tone/tighten skin. The technology is applied using a massaging technique, which is painless and non-invasive. No suction, no surgery. Just incredible results.

What Is a Cryoskin Facial?

A Cryoskin Facial uses a combination of heat and cold delivered by a machine that looks like an ultrasound wand. The session is a quick 20-minute, pain free treatment. Cryoskin Facial can help to improve your complexion, increase collagen production, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Who’s an Ideal Candidate?

Cryoskin facials are non-invasive cosmetic procedures, and, unlike certain peels or microdermabrasion, they will not leave skin looking red or raw.

Anyone who wants a glowing skin is a good candidate for a Cryoskin facial, especially those who feel that their skin looks dull.

Benefits of Cryotherapy for Skin –

#1 Boosts Collagen Production

Recent studies point out that Cryotherapy stimulates collagen production. The protein, Collagen, is responsible for keeping your skin healthy, supple, and elastic. When Collagen is not produced in the optimum amount, lines & wrinkles are more likely to form.

Collagen’s responsibility also includes replacing dead skin cells, which helps the skin appear radiant & youthful. That’s why Collagen boosting beauty creams, supplements, and injections are popular. Injections may offer you instant benefits, but creams & supplements are safer and gentler.

However, Cryoskin is safer, gentler, and way more useful than these treatments.

#2 Reduces the Appearance of Lines and Wrinkles

Collagen levels naturally drop with age, and your skin becomes drier, which is why lines and wrinkles form. A Cryoskin facial stimulates the production of collagen, so your skin remains supple and elastic for a longer period. It’s a gentler and way more effective anti-aging treatment than traditional remedies such as herbal supplements.

#3 It Improves Blood Circulation

When you undergo a Cryoskin facial treatment, the cold and heat contracts and then expands your blood vessels, it makes your skin look healthy & radiant as there is increased blood flow to your skin.

#4 Reduced Pigmentation and Inflammation

Pigmentation, such as acne, sun damage, age spots, and puffiness, can be challenging to treat and conceal. Creams and traditional facials may help, but a Cryoskin facial can be particularly useful to you as it flushes the body of metabolic waste.

It helps in removing dead skin cells from your body and stimulates the production of new ones, which then grow in a more even manner.

#5 Shrinks Pores

Well, you might be aware of the fact that heat helps to dilate pores, which is why many of us wash our faces with hot water to cleanse our skin properly. But what will help you more is decreasing pore size and prevent impurities from blocking them in the first place. This is also linked to how a Cryoskin facial stimulates collagen production because when your skin tightens, the pores become smaller.

How Does a Cryoskin Facial Differ From A Normal Facial?

While reading these benefits, you might think that they sound remarkably similar to the benefits of a normal facial. So, what is the difference?

Normal facials are essentially skin treatments that cleanse, nourish, and exfoliate your skin to leave you with a clear and hydrated complexion, and facials are a great way to take care of your skin. However, they do nothing to stimulate collagen production.

The thing about facials is that they tend to be an expensive multi-step process. While the individual steps might not take a long time, but a series of them will end up being rather time-consuming. For instance, you might want to steam your face to open your pores before applying a face mask. Then you’ll want to wash it off, cleanse, exfoliate & tone. That’s five steps before getting to moisturizing and face massage to stimulate blood flow to the skin.

In contrast, a Cryoskin facial is an inexpensive, quick, 20-minute treatment meant to stimulate your body’s production of collagen that results in firmer, more glowing, skin with decreased wrinkles and pore size.
