Cryotherapy facial - the coolest treatment ever

What are the advantages of this treatment?

It may sound like a futuristic term from a sci-fi film, but if you have been using a spa recently you may have noticed that cryotherapy treatments have been gaining popularity.

Cryotherapy involves the use of sub-zero temperatures or cryogenically cooled air to provide pain relief and promote general health or wellness. Consider it simply as a type of "freeze therapy". Further developments and technological advances in cryotherapy have resulted in a new branch of treatment which utilises the therapy's anti-aging benefits to focus on the face. This innovative treatment is known as a cryotherapy facial.

What happens during a treatment?

During a cryotherapy facial, a cryo-probe is used to direct liquid nitrogen (in a vaporised form) across the face, targeting the face, nose, cheeks and the chin.

Often the treatment is accompanied by a nitrogen scalp and neck massage too. Most spas offer a series of treatment packages to deliver the best results. The treatment is non-invasive and can be carried out in as little as ten minutes, so you can continue with your daily activities immediately after the treatment.

As with all treatments and therapies, it's advisable to contact your skin specialist to discuss any individual needs or concerns. People who are pregnant, breast-feeding, or anyone who has high blood pressure or cardiovascular disease is advised not to have this type of treatment.

What are the benefits?

A variety of anti-aging benefits may be experienced after a cryotherapy facial. It's thought that an increase in microcirculation helps to boost collagen production and to detoxify and rejuvenate the skin.

As collagen is the key ingredient that helps to give skin its firmness and structure, the skin can appear more toned, firm and youthful after the treatment. The production of collagen declines as we age, so the stimulation of collagen helps to minimise the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles which start to appear as collagen production slows.

After the treatment, it's likely that the skin will appear to have a better texture and any puffiness or inflammation will be reduced too.

As the treatment offers some inflammatory benefits, this type of facial may be particularly helpful for people who have skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis.

A facial using the latest cryotherapy techniques provides a speedy, non-surgical anti-aging treatment. It can also reduce puffiness, inflammation and reduce pore size. For anyone who is concerned about the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging, a cryo facial could be the one of the coolest treatments ever...literally.

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. For more information, we invite you to a FREE consultation with our facial aesthetics specialist.
