Cryotherapy has gained popularity in the recent years with spa treatments exposing clients to subzero temperatures to help relieve pain and improve their health. This wellness treatment has recently undergone another adaptation with the cryotherapy facial treatment.
Cryo Facial Facts
The Cryo Facial is a cryogenic treatment that is performed by what is considered a "cryo probe," which beams vaporized liquid nitrogen across the forehead, cheeks, nose and chin.1 Different from the cryotherapy chambers that can be used for pain relief, the facial targets helping the face look younger.
The treatment helps the skin to feel tighter, and the pressurized liquid nitrogen helps stimulate collagen production while also filling in fine lines and wrinkles and decreasing pores.2
The facial will typically include a scalp and neck nitrogen massage as well, and it is often recommended to do this facial in a series of treatments.2 Some spas have even started offering Cryo Facial membership packages.
The Benefits of Freezing Your Face
Some of the many benefits of receiving this treatment deal with stimulating collagen production through the increase in microcirculation. This then helps to detox and rejuvenate the skin.1
Furthering the treatment's anti-aging benefits, cryo facials are said to restore firmness to the skin and will even cause the skin to feel tighter right after the treatment. In rejuvenating the skin, the cryo facial also restores radiance, soothes inflammation and improves skin texture and tone.1
This treatment can even go as far as to help clients who are suffering from more severe skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis due to its anti-inflammatory properties.
