What is a cryo-facial?

A cryo-facial is a cryogenic treatment focused on improving the health and appearance of your facial skin and underlying tissues. It’s a great way to achieve impressive results without invasive cosmetic surgery, laser treatments, or injectables.

The process is sometimes referred to as a cryoprobe and works by directing a stream of vaporized liquid nitrogen across your chin, nose, cheeks, and forehead. Treatments sometimes include a scalp and neck application as well.

How does a cryo-facial work?

One of the benefits of a cryo-facial is the ability to exfoliate the outermost layers of dead skin without using manual pressure or chemical solutions. Those dead skin cells are simply “frozen” away, revealing a layer of fresh, healthy, and glowing skin cells.

Cryo-facials also boost circulation by causing your blood vessels to contract and subsequently dilate. This prompts your body to boost circulation in the treatment area, delivering nutrients and flushing away toxins and cellular debris.

Better circulation also helps reduce inflammation and helps your body fight infection. Improved circulation in your scalp can stimulate new hair growth, treating hair loss without medications or transplants.

Cryo-facials also prompt your body to produce new collagen, which serves to smooth and plump your skin. This is the same effect brought about by laser treatments, but a cryo-facial does not create the same level of skin irritation possible with laser treatments.

How does a cryo-facial affect enlarged pores and dark circles?

Cryo-facials direct a blast of cold temperature to the surface of your skin. That causes your pores to constrict, becoming tighter and smaller. Those pores can no longer hold the same volume of dirt, oils, and toxins. Over time, cryo-facials can dramatically improve the appearance of enlarged pores.

The circulation boost delivered by a cryo-facial speeds the transport of oxygen and nutrients to the treated tissues. That can even the tone of your skin, including dark circles beneath your eyes. Puffiness is also decreased, which calls less attention to the delicate skin under your eyes.
