Cryotherapy: For a Smoother & More Radiant Complexion
What’s a cryotherapy facial?
A cryotherapy facial is a non-invasive treatment which uses vaporized liquid nitrogen across your face and neck to help restore your youthful glow. This is done by:
- Decreasing pore size
- Improving blood flow
- Filling of fine lines
- Eliminating wrinkles
- Stimulating collagen production
- Triggering hair follicle growth
By removing the outer dead layer of skin cells and stimulating new ones to grow in, your skin benefits by restoring its sense of firmness, along with improving its texture and tone. Additionally, if you’re suffering from skin conditions, such as eczema, acne, or psoriasis, a cryotherapy facial can help due to its anti-inflammatory properties.
What can I expect during the cryotherapy facial treatment?
Before beginning the cryotherapy facial, a member of Eternal Hair and Esthetics cleans and exfoliates your skin to provide you with the best outcome. Following this, they use a special probe to deliver freezing vaporized liquid nitrogen to your face, neck, and scalp area, being careful to evenly distribute the ultra-cold nitrogen air.
A cryotherapy facial takes roughly 10-20 minutes and requires no downtime following the treatment. The best part is you’ll notice how tight your skin feels immediately after your treatment. It’s recommended to repeat your cryotherapy facial every one to two months to achieve the most favorable results.
How does the cryotherapy facial work?
Because your skin is cooled to a freezing temperature, your blood vessels and capillaries begin to contract, and then they dilate again after the treatment. This encourages collagen production and supports your skin cells as important nutrients and enzymes are delivered to them. Additionally, the increase in blood flow can help you develop a more even skin tone and decrease puffiness around your face.
Another benefit of this facial is that your pores react by shrinking, meaning it won’t be as easy for oil and dirt to penetrate your skin’s barrier.
What does a cryotherapy facial do?
Getting a cryotherapy facial at Eternal Hair and Esthetics gives you healthier, younger-looking skin. The advanced technology utilizes a controlled stream of liquid nitrogen that freezes your skin and tightens it, helping to fill in lines and wrinkles and decrease blemishes and puffiness.
The procedure activates collagen production in your face, which rejuvenates your skin. This is caused by an increase in microcirculation from the nitrogen stream.
What benefits does a cryotherapy facial provide?
In addition to rejuvenating your skin and giving your face that youthful glow, cryotherapy facials can:
- Trigger hair follicle growth on the scalp
- Decrease the size of your pores
- Improve blood circulation
- Relieve symptoms of eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis
- Decrease wrinkles
- Reduce the size of pores
Because the therapy treats many facial skin issues, you can benefit from a cryotherapy facial at Eternal Hair and Esthetics in more than one way.
What is the procedure like?
Cryotherapy facials are quick and easy. The team at Eternal Hair and Esthetics completes the procedure in less than 20 minutes, and there’s no recovery time. You can return to your normal activities directly following the facial.
During the procedure, your face, neck, and scalp first are exfoliated. Then, the liquid nitrogen probe provides its controlled stream to the areas, evenly freezing the skin.
This improves the look of skin by flushing toxins that have been built up over time and actually protects it from further outside toxins. This is because pores shrink during the procedure, collagen production is initiated, and blood flow is increased.
These results all assist with achieving the radiant, firm skin you want with no swelling or redness.
How often will you need treatment?
While you do see results after the first cryotherapy facial, it’s suggested you return every month or two for best, longer-lasting results. Because the collagen is activated and producing more cells, your skin will be more elastic with repeated cryotherapy facials.
