WHAT IS A CRYOFACIAL?

Cryotherapy is the use of vaporized liquid nitrogen over the skin. This technique was first developed in Japan and has seen great success. The treatment helps soothe and calm the skin after a treatment, with additional tightening benefits. A cryofacial is a safe, non-invasive technique that uses the body’s own healing processes to smooth and rejuvenate your skin. If you think you’d like to learn more about cryotherapy, please contact us today to schedule a consultation with Illuminate staff at our Palo Alto location.

HOW DOES A CRYOFACIAL WORK?

When exposed to freezing temperatures, 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. The increase in circulation can stimulate collagen production, which has been identified as a critical element when trying to rejuvenate and detoxify the skin. This process can make the skin firmer and tighter, reduce inflammation and give your face a smoother texture and tone and even a radiant glow.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING A CRYOFACIAL PROCEDURE?

Your cryofacial will take place easily and comfortably in the minor procedure room of our Palo Alto facility. At Illuminate, we use custom wands, sometimes called “cryo probes,” with vaporized liquid nitrogen to use across the forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin. With gentle, circular motions, we will subject the targeted areas to sub-zero temperatures in order to stimulate circulation. The entire process takes less than ten minutes, and most patients describe the sensation as a soothing blast of cool air, such as you might feel from holding a portable fan to your face on a hot day.

HOW LONG IS RECOVERY TIME FROM AN A CRYOFACIAL PROCEDURE?

Unlike some other facial skin rejuvenation methods, you are likely not to see any redness or irritation following the procedure, since we are not heating or cutting the skin. The procedure is entirely non-invasive, so there is no need to take any time off to recover. A cryofacial should not interfere with your daily activities at all. You can schedule a cryofacial in the morning before work, during your lunch break, even right before a big event to give yourself that extra glow.

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. The cryotherapy wands may be used after any skin rejuvenating treatment at Illuminate. Ask your Illuminate skin care expert about the different ways we can make our cryotherapy methods work for you and your skin.

HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS FROM A CRYOFACIAL?

Immediately after the cryofacial procedure, your skin will feel tighter and smoother.* Your skin will be exfoliated and radiant and start healing right away, as the deep-freezing process stimulates circulation right away. One reason some people like to get a cryofacial first thing in the morning before work or an event is that the stimulated circulation in your face can give you that “awake and alert” look that you might otherwise need three or four cups of coffee to achieve!

HOW MUCH DOES A CRYOFACIAL COST?

A cryofacial is one of the most inexpensive facial skin rejuvenation procedures available. It is also one of the best values. In fact, many people like to come in for a cryofacial once a week or so as part of their regular schedule to keep that rejuvenated look and feel because it is so easy and affordable to do. We would love for you to come in and try it yourself. Please join our other Silicon Valley patients who feel renewed and refreshed thanks to cryofacials.
