Although you may not have heard much about cryofacials during the past several decades, cryogenics has been in use for hundreds of years. The earliest uses of cryotherapy included ice baths to reduce swelling and discomfort. Cryogenic principles are based on reducing inflammation and speeding up healing by quickly lowering the temperature of the skin and underlying tissues. The cold causes blood to circulate to the area where cold is applied, and this speeds up natural healing. Also, full-body cryotherapy triggers the release of endorphins, which also contributes to healing.
What Is A Cryofacial?
A cryogenic facial is a non-invasive technique that uses liquid nitrogen vapors to freeze your scalp and your skin on both the face and the neck. The cold temperature instantly causes your skin to tighten, which helps fill in wrinkles and fine lines. It only takes a matter of minutes to complete the process, and results are quickly visible. If you have inflammation in your face or a slight discoloration due to minor damage, this special facial can reduce both since it promotes better circulation. The facial is not painful, and many people say that it is relaxing. There is no downtime after the procedure.
How Does It Work?
With this special technique, the skin is cooled to a temperature below freezing very quickly. In addition to reducing wrinkles, this technique helps flush toxins from the skin and reduces impurities. A special probe is used to deliver the liquid nitrogen vapors that cause skin tightening. This tightening is called vasoconstriction, which helps dilate capillaries and blood vessels.
The combination of fast freezing and vasoconstriction also lends to possible collagen production. One of the biggest contributing factors to wrinkles and fine lines is reduced collagen production. Although this is natural as people age, collagen can be regenerated to create a more youthful appearance on the skin’s surface. Also, this special facial closes your pores to give your skin a natural and healthy glow.
