You probably know about Botox… but how much do you know about frotox? Well, skin aging might be inevitable, but even if we can’t freeze time, it turns out we can freeze signs of aging in our tracks—with a little help from “cold therapy,” otherwise known as “cryotherapy.” Cryotherapy has been used for many years within the medical field to reduce swelling, encourage circulation, and promote healing. And it just so happens it works the same kind of magic when it comes to anti-aging skincare. Allow us to introduce you to... the cryo facial.

How do cryotherapy facials work?

In a standard cryotherapy facial, a hose is used to concentrate liquid nitrogen into a pressurized beam of vapor. The vapor passes over the face, neck, and scalp, boosting microcirculation (the circulation of blood in the smallest blood vessels) and accelerating collagen production, which results in a lifted, tightening effect. This is because the intense cold causes your blood vessels to contract and your pores to tighten. Once your skin returns to its normal temperature, the blood vessels dilate quickly, which causes an increase in the flow of blood and oxygen to the face. This makes your skin glow, look more vibrant, and cause your lips to look plumper. The rush of blood and oxygen can also make the face look less swollen.

What are the benefits of cryo facials?

Cryotherapy may have more potential than you realize! From boosting the nervous system to smoothing the skin. Here are some anti-aging effects of cryo facials:

- Brightening The Under-Eye Area
- Soothing Inflammation And Puffiness
- Diminishing The Appearance Of Wrinkles
- Tightening Pores

So how often should you get a cryo facial? There’s no hard and fast rule on this, our office offers cryo facials starting strong with 5-10 treatments in the first month, then following with maintenance appointments once or twice a month. This timeline is also applicable to at-home facials.

Types of Cryotherapy

There are two main types of cryotherapy: whole-body cryotherapy (WBC) and localized cryotherapy (LC). Cryo facials are a type of localized cryotherapy focused on rejuvenating the skin on the face around the eyes, mouth, and neck. Regarding cryo facials in particular, don't miss our article what is a cryo facial for more details.

Is it safe to get a New Jersey cryo facial?

The simple answer is yes; cryo facials are safe for healthy individuals. It’s worth noting that in 2015, the FDA released a consumer update on whole-body cryotherapy, which indicated risks of oxygen deficiency, frostbite, and eye injury. But in the case of cryo facial treatments, where your eyes are protected and an esthetician continuously moves the wand over only the face and neck, these concerns are not as relevant. Still, you should always make sure the person treating you is a trained professional, and consult your primary doctor if you are pregnant or have any underlying medical conditions such as respiratory issues, cardiovascular issues, or anemia. And if you have any skin conditions, like rosacea or atopic dermatitis, you would do well to check with a dermatologist first, as sometimes cold temperatures can be aggravating.
