Whole Body Cryotherapy also leaves you feeling simply great. When your skin’s surface temperature drops below freezing, your heart begins to pump more blood around your body, so your cells are getting an energising boost of oxygen. During this immune response, happy little endorphins are also released, flooding your body with their feel-good factor. People who use Cryotherapy regularly have stated that they have more energy throughout the day, and simply feel healthier all-round.

What is a Cryofacial and Does it Hurt?

Cryofacials are a Cryogenic treatment, developed by the highly talented Dr Kuehne in Los Angeles.  The process uses a controlled stream of liquid nitrogen vapours, which is passed over the entire face and neck. This below zero stream comes from a probe like ‘Cryowand’ and is used to ‘freeze’ the outer layer of skin, leaving your complexion looking brighter, more vibrant and with fewer fine lines.

As soon as the vapour passes over your skin there is an instantaneous tightening of the skin’s surface and pores, which effectively fills in fine lines and wrinkles. However, it’s underneath the skin that the true magic happens. The Cryofacial instantly triggers a steady dilation of blood vessels and lymphatic capillaries, allowing the blood to carry more oxygen, nutrients and even collagen to the skin’s surface. This quick rush of goodies causes the production of collagen to increase, leaving you with a truly glowing and even complexion.

If you suffer from puffiness around your eyes or red patches on your face and neck, having a Cryofacial could be the answer to all your problems. The liquid nitrogen vapour relaxes muscles and reduces swelling and inflammation, which can drastically reduce puffiness and uneven skin tones.

The whole process only takes around 10 minutes, and unlike most other facial treatments, there’s no irritation or reddening afterwards. You can step straight out of the clinic and onto the red carpet after a Cryofacial treatment, which is what a lot of celebrities do.

Does a Cryofacial hurt?

Many people worry that they won’t be able to handle the freezing cold air, or that the process will be extremely painful. The Cryofacial process, when done by a professional, won’t cause any discomfort at all. Most people describe the experience as extremely relaxing and soothing, likening the sensation to having a hand fan blowing on your face on a hot summer’s day. Many Cryofacial experts have actually had clients fall asleep in the chair during the process as they were so relaxed.

There’s also absolutely no chance of freezing or damaging the skin in any way. The stream of liquid nitrogen vapour is passed over the surface of the skin in a gentle circular motion and is never left in one place long enough to cause any damage at all.

What are the long-term effects?

From the second you get out of the chair, you’ll notice a dramatic change in your skin’s appearance. Fine lines will be reduced, and your skin will look healthy, vibrant and glowing. However, when used on a regular basis, Cryofacials can have a wide range of amazing Benefits.

  • Increased elasticity of skin
  • Brightens dark spots
  • Evens skin tone

Can CRYOfacials help you look younger?

Forget botox! Smooth those wrinkles and freeze your way to younger-looking skin.

In this day and age, people are always looking for ways to look younger, fresher and more beautiful. There absolutely are ways to do this, but most successful methods such as Botox and plastic surgery are invasive, expensive and can be very damaging to the skin.

That’s where CRYOfacials come in…

CRYOfacials use a non-invasive freezing technique that takes as little as 20 minutes to complete. It works by placing a small device called a ‘cryo-probe’, filled with liquid nitrogen, next to the areas of skin that are problematic. The liquid nitrogen then ‘freezes’ the nerves in these areas causing the surrounding muscles to relax and your wrinkles to drastically lessen.

Although this technique may sound a little scary, there’s absolutely nothing dangerous about this process. Your skin is never actually frozen, and most people are surprised by how gentle and relaxing the cooling process feels. Unlike Botox, CRYOfacials don’t use any toxins or chemicals, so the process is actually much more friendly and safer for your body.

When used regularly, CRYOfacials can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and smooth and tone the skin, giving a more youthful look. This innovative method can also reduce unwanted pigmentation or uneven skin tone, lighten acne scars and even help treat skin conditions such as eczema.

Unlike Botox or other anti-ageing techniques, the effects of CRYOfacials are immediate and last for up to 4 months. Celebrities such as Demi Moore and Jennifer Aniston use this new technique as a way to get red carpet ready. With all those bright lights and cameras around, these celebs use CRYOfacials to minimise blemishes, close their pores, tighten their skin and give them that million dollar glow.
