What is Cryo?
Cryogenics has been used for hundreds of years. The most common form is the use of ice baths to reduce muscle swelling, soreness and speed up recovery. The Cryo Facial uses a similar principle, but is far more targeted to the face and neck.
How does the Cryo Facial work?
The Cryo Facial treatment is non-invasive and pain free and works through means of or “freeze therapy”.
The skin is rapidly cooled, using a beam of vaporized liquid nitrogen, to well below freezing in a matter of minutes using a revolutionary ‘cryo-probe’. This leads to a tightening of the microcirculation blood stream, known as vasoconstriction, and then dilation of blood vessels and capillaries which helps to flush toxins and impurities away from the skin.
The process works to contract the skin and accelerate microcirculation which supports better oxygenation of dermal cells, encourages collagen production and helps to detox and rejuvenate the skin.
