Beauty bloggers everywhere are rushing out to try this cryo facial treatment.
I bet you did not know that you can use the same science that athletes use in the locker room, to get rid of your wrinkles. What science is that? Ice baths of course! “Freezing your face”for beauty might seem crazy at first… However, cryogenics have been in use for hundreds of years in a variety of different industries.
“Frotox,” also known as a cryo facial, uses a similar concept to an ice bath. The facial uses a targeted cryogenic treatment. Your blood flow increases, toxins are flushed out, and facial tissue is rejuvenated. So how does this all work? We are not talking about an ice bath for your face; it is a bit more sophisticated than that. Liquid nitrogen brings your facial tissue below freezing in minutes.
We know that ice baths and other cryogenic treatments work. Athletes and doctors alike swear by them. However, what does a cryo facial do for your face?
Decreases wrinkles and fine lines
Stimulates production of collagen
Stimulates blood flow
Refines pores and tightens skin
Soothes skin conditions including eczema
Brightens skin tone & improves radiance
Lessens effects of psoriasis and dermatitis
Effective treatment for arthritis patients
Reduces uneven skin and pigmentation
Lightens acne scars

You might be wondering if freezing the skin on your face would be painful or dangerous. With the cryo facial, it is neither. The process begins very similarly to many other facials. It is essential to cleanse the skin and open up the pores to allow the cryogenic treatment to be most effective.
Next, use an Azelaic Acid peel, an exfoliating treatment, on the face. During this step, you are removing old, dead skin cells. The cryo facial or Frotox works by constricting blood vessels. You will not be able to see the results of this treatment with dead skin cells. The dead cells will not show any improvement and will hide the rejuvenated cells.
The cryogenic part of the facial is relatively quick, about 1/4 or less of the entire facial. The process is painless, and the results settle in over the next few days. You will notice vibrant, tighter skin after the first treatment. However, cryo facials are most effective when done over a period. A series of cryo facials work to provide more noticeable and longer lasting results.
If you have ever seen the list of treatments at a spa, you know that there are many types of facials. Each one is set up for a different skin type or condition or end goal. So who would benefit from a cryogenic session? Unlike other facial treatments, a cryo facial can be useful across the board. People with skin irritations or sunburns can get extra benefit from a cryo facial. Other conditions such as chronic redness of the face, swelling, and rashes respond as well. Try out one of our cryo facials to harness the power of cold to rejuvenate your skin.
