1) Improves Blood Circulation
During your Cryofacial, cold vapors are applied to your face, scalp, and neck, depending on your focus areas. The intense cold causes your blood vessels to contract and then dilate, ultimately working to increase your blood flow. As your blood flow increases, important enzymes and nutrients are delivered to your skin while harmful toxins are flushed away.
Overtime, your blood circulation will improve, making your skin healthier and stronger. People who suffer from skin conditions like eczema or rosacea often experience long-lasting positive results, with regular Cryofacial treatments. When applied to your scalp, the increased blood flow can actually trigger your scalp into stimulating hair growth.
Furthermore, improving your blood circulation does more than just cleanse your skin or help your hair grow. It can also lower your heart rate, even your blood pressure, improve your oxygen levels, and improve brain function.
2) Increases Collagen Production
Each Cryofacial actively triggers collagen production to effectively smooth away wrinkles while giving you fuller, younger looking skin. As your face is gently treated with cold vapor, your skin becomes instantly tighter and your complexion changes to a more youthful glow. With continued treatments to enhance your collagen production, you can ultimately slow down or reverse signs of aging while feeling great in your skin.
3) Decreases Pore Size and Fights Acne
Each time you get a Cryofacial, your pores react to the cold by tightening and shrinking. Cryofacials also exfoliates your skin, removes dead skin cells and other contaminations, which helps facilitate greater cell turnover. This helps your new cells come to be smooth and healthy. With regular treatments, the effects can be long-lasting, giving you clear, beautiful skin.
4) Reduces Dark Circles and Puffiness
As your blood circulation is improved, you will begin to notice a more even-tone in your overall facial skin, a decrease in inflammation and puffiness around the eyes, and an overall reduction of the visibility of dark circles.
