WHAT IS A CRYOFACIAL?
Cryotherapy is the use of vaporized liquid nitrogen over the skin. This technique was first developed in Japan. At Illuminate, we use custom wands with vaporized liquid nitrogen to use across the forehead, cheeks, nose and chin. The treatment helps sooth and calm the skin after a treatment, with additional tightening benefits.
When exposed to freezing temperature, your body thinks that it’s freezing. This triggers the natural healing mechanism of your body. This expands your capillaries, and the white blood cells start working at a faster pace to protect you.
WHAT CONDITIONS WILL A CRYOFACIAL TREAT?
Cryotherapy for beauty can help maintain a youthful appearance while reducing the signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines and blemishes. All with only a few minutes of a treatment. By exposing the skin to subzero temperatures, the body’s natural healing process jumps into action, ready to rejuvenate your skin as a result.
WHAT ELSE DO WE USE A CRYOFACIAL FOR AT ILLUMINATE?
The cryotherapy wands may be used after any skin rejuvenating treatment at Illuminate.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
The cryotherapy portion of a facial session lasts for 2-3 minutes.
WHEN SHOULD I EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS?
Immediately after the procedure, your skin will feel tighter and smoother.*
