How Does a CryoFacial Work?

Cryotherapy facials utilize precisely targeted applications of liquid nitrogen to expose the skin to extremely cold temperatures. The intense cold triggers healing processes that promote cell turnover and increase collagen production. Through the process of initially causing blood vessels to narrow and then subsequently widen, inflammation is diminished, and blood circulation is improved for better delivery of oxygen and nutrients to skin cells.

The procedure can temporarily make skin appear firmer, and it also lowers skin temperature, offering a numbing effect that soothes irritation and skin and reduces sensitivity. Cryotherapy can provide therapeutic benefits for sore or injured joints treatment as well, ask our staff about this easy add-on.

Candidates for CryoFacial

Cryofacials are suitable for individuals of varying ages and skin types. Ideal candidates for a cryotherapy facial are in good general health and looking for a gentler non-invasive facial treatment to improve puffiness, redness, or signs of aging.

A consultation with an aesthetic healthcare provider at PFRANKMD will ensure the patient’s safe compatibility with cryotherapy. Through this process, the patient will have a comprehensive understanding of the procedure and the details of their customized treatment plan.

The Procedure

The cryofacial is a quick procedure that is not considered to be painful; it begins with a thorough cleansing of the face to ensure clean skin. A specialized wand is then used to apply liquid nitrogen gas. Following the cryotherapy application, specialized facial massage techniques, and skincare products are used to enhance treatment results.

Results & Recovery

Recovery from a cryofacial involves minimal to no downtime, allowing individuals to resume their daily activities immediately afterward. Patients may experience temporary redness that fades quickly. Diligent protection of skin from direct sun exposure is advised as the skin may temporarily be more sensitive to UV rays.

Following a cryofacial, many individuals experience immediate refreshment and a sense of revitalization, as the cold temperature invigorates the skin. The treatment provides immediate benefits such as reduced facial puffiness and inflammation, leaving the skin with a more radiant tone for several weeks.
