Cryotherapy is so trendy right now for a reason: it works. Let´s see what happens to your skin if you use one of these tools!
Cryotherapy is a technique that involves exposing the body to extreme cold for several minutes. It can be applied to one area such as your face, the stomach, legs or even the whole body. You can see the results in only one session, but of course, it’s more effective when used regularly. Experts have developed some home tools so you can do the treatment yourself more regularly. But what does cold do to our skin?

Cryo facial tools can help reduce pain and make your muscles recover. The explosion to cold activates your lymph system and as a consequence, it reduces swelling and inflammation.
Blood flow stimulation
Regular use of these tools stimulates the blood flow allowing fresher blood to rise to the surface and infusing rich nutrients to the surface of your skin. at the same time, it helps get rid of water retention in the skin –the number one cause of puffiness.
Tools in the market
There are several face rollers or rollerballs, ice packs, coolant sprays and so on. If you go for a face roller, you can cool it in your fridge or freezer and roll it over your skin to improve circulation, collagen production and constrict your pores.
How to prepare for it
Drink water so your skin is hydrated, avoid heavy exfoliation and cleanse your face before.
How often should you apply it?
A person may need a cryo facial every 3 or 5 weeks, but the more you do it, the more permanent the results will be.
Of course, in-office treatments could have more permanent results, but as with everything in life, if you include cryo facial to your routine, you will eventually see the results.
