Cryo Facial Q & A

What is a °CRYO Facial?

°CRYO Facial is an aesthetic treatment that uses the science of cryotherapy to rejuvenate the skin. Cryotherapy involves exposing body tissues to very low temperatures to provoke a physical response and boost your body’s healing and regenerative abilities.

°CRYO Facial treatment can help to:

  • Restore firmness to your skin
  • Increase skin radiance
  • Reduce pigmentation
  • Reduce uneven skin tone
  • Rejuvenate tired skin
  • Improve skin texture
  • Reduce the appearance of skin blemishes
  • Improve skin tone
  • Lighten acne scars
  • Soothe inflammation
  • Treat skin conditions such as eczema
  • Reduce wrinkles and fine lines

Regular treatments with °CRYO Facial help to keep your skin looking more youthful.

How does °CRYO Facial treatment work?

°CRYO Facial uses air cooled with liquid nitrogen to activate the production of collagen. When the cooled air hits your skin, your body responds by activating the healing process, generating new skin cells and producing more collagen.

Collagen plays a vital role in supporting your skin and keeping it taut and elastic. As you age, your body naturally produces less collagen, which causes your skin to lose its elasticity and develop lines and wrinkles.

By stimulating your body to start producing new collagen, °CRYO Facial triggers a rejuvenation process, increasing elasticity and smoothing out the skin for a more youthful appearance.

What does a °CRYO Facial feel like?

°CRYO Facial isn’t painful; you just feel the cold air on your skin, much the same as if you had a good look inside your freezer. Treatments take no more than 10 minutes, so the sensation of coldness doesn’t last long.

°CRYO Facial is a safe, FDA approved noninvasive therapy, so you don’t have to have any injections, anesthetics, incisions, or sutures. There’s no downtime for recovery after the treatment, so you can carry on your day as normal.

Will I see the results of a °CRYO Facial treatment straight away?

As soon as you complete your °CRYO Facial treatment, you’ll see an improvement in your skin tone, as the cryotherapy closes pores and tightens your skin immediately. You then continue to see further improvement over the weeks and months that follow as your body produces new collagen fibers.

You can have °CRYO Facial as a one-off treatment, but for maximum benefit, it’s best to undergo three to four treatments a year.
