What is a cryofacial?
A cryofacial utilizes the same techniques seen in full body cryotherapy to provide extreme temperature changes to the facial skin. In a cryofacial, liquid nitrogen gas at temperatures near -300ºF stimulates blood flow, reduces inflammation, shrinks pores, releases toxins, and stimulates collagen production.
Cryofacials are not approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or scientifically proven to provide medical benefit. Despite this, their popularity continues to increase. Cryofacials are most commonly used to treat common skin conditions like fine lines, puffiness, pore size, dark circles, and uneven skin tone or skin texture.
What cosmetic concerns does a cryofacial procedure treat?
- Acne: A cryofacial stimulates blood flow and reduces inflammation to help reduce acne
- Uneven Skin Texture: Similarly, the fresh blood flow can improve skin texture.
Who is the ideal candidate for a cryofacial procedure?
The ideal candidate for a cryofacial is looking to improve inflammation and promote blood flow in a quick, non-invasive procedure. Cryofacials are not recommended for patients who have received dermal injections or fillers within the last week.
What is the average recovery associated with a cryofacial procedure?
There is no recovery or downtime following a cryofacial. All normal activities and skincare can be immediately resumed following the treatment.
What are the potential side effects of a cryofacial procedure?
A cryofacial is generally well tolerated, however, it is possible to develop skin burns if the treatment is not performed properly.
What can someone expect from the results of a cryofacial procedure?
The results of a cryofacial are improvements to inflammation and pore size, improved blood flow, and enhanced skin tone and complexion immediately following the procedure. Treatments can be done as often as every one to two weeks, although most candidates pursue upkeep every three to five weeks.
What is the average cost of a cryofacial treatment?
Cryofacials cost anywhere from $55 to $65. The actual cost of a cryofacial is dependent upon location, dermatologist, and length and involvement of the cosmetic procedure.
