CryoFacial: The Ready to Wear Facial

The perfect candidate for Cryostar's CryoFacial is, well, just about anyone who wants to improve their skin texture, combat fine lines and leave the salon with a fresh, rejuvenated appearance.

This CryoFacial, not to be confused with the vaporised liquid nitrogen cryo facials, uses icy cold temperatures and works at a much deeper level to penetrate deep into the dermis layer of the skin, working with the body’s natural process to boost collagen and skin tautness.

Why building Collagen is important

From a young age, we’re collagen-producing vessels, but as we age collagen reserves start to deplete, leaving us with less elasticity, thus less firm and less youthful skin.

Collagen, in short, is a key protein responsible for healthy joints and skin stretchiness. It’s in your bones, muscles, blood and comprises of three-quarters of your skin and a third of the protein in your body.

As you age, production of collagen slows down and it gets much harder for the body to produce. That’s not to say someone of a younger age won’t benefit from this facial as well – read on to discover the positive benefits of a CryoFacial for everyone.

How does the CryoFacial work?

The Cryostar technology uses cold temperatures via a wand (definitely the magic variety) to widen blood vessels and increase blood flow. The facial session uses alternating vasoconstriction (via the wand) and vasodilation (through massage) to increase blood circulation.

The increase in oxygen supply to the skin boosts collagen production and increases elastin, which strengthens the structure of the Dermis layer of the skin. In turn, strengthening the Epidermis layer, which improves skin tone, lessen pores, and reduced the appearance of fine lines - you can see how this works in the diagrams below.

With the Cryostar CryoFacial, clients can expect noticeable instant results, akin to that beautiful glow after a brisk winter walk, immediately after treatment.

Do you know when your face looks almost peachy perfect against the starkness of the pure white snow? Thanks to the increased blood circulation giving your skin a youthful boost and an enviable glow - this is the instant result you’ll achieve.

Skin benefits of a CryoFacial

Every time you indulge in a CryoFacial you’ll experience an abundance of benefits; with so many facials on the market, as well as heavily marketed creams, serums and gadgets it’s extremely hard to circumnavigate the best treatment for you. But believe us, with first-hand experience and genuine breath-taking results, your skin and pores will thank you for choosing the power of Cryostar. Here are some of those benefits:

  • Pores will react to the cold by tightening and shrinking. The facial has an added element of gently exfoliating the skin, so it will rid skin of the dulling skin cells and rejuvenate newly produced ones.

  • Equally, with tighter and smaller pores it helps to stop dirt and toxins entering and give the skin a fresher, tauter and brighter look.

  • Blood circulation is improved - you’ll start to notice a more even tone in your skin, decreased puffiness and an overall reduction of dark circles around your eyes.

  • As blood flow increases from the intense cold contracting and dilating, important enzymes and nutrients are delivered to the skin – while harmful toxins are flushed away through the lymphatic system.

  • Over time, as blood circulation improves it strengthens the skin barrier helping to fight off bacteria, which can be the cause of acne and inflammation in the skin.

  • It’s even brilliant for those who suffer from skin conditions such as eczema – giving long-lasting positive results.

  • Lastly, each CryoFacial actively triggers your collagen production = the elixir of youth, so the facial will work effectively to reduce fine lines, and give you a plumper, fresher, renewed skin tone.

The more frequently you have CryoFacials – the more benefits you will reap. Results will last for 2-3 weeks, and by then we’d recommend you pop in for another as skin cells renew every 4 weeks.

As we hail it the ‘ready to wear’ facial – it means you can leave the salon sans makeup feeling just incredible.

With continued treatments to enhance your collagen production, you can slow down the signs of ageing, all while feeling instantly more skin confident overall. #shapethebodyyouwant
