What is Cryotherapy Facial Treatment?
Cryotherapy is an innovative treatment technique where the area is briefly exposed to a very cold temperature (-78 degrees).
The Cryo Facial treatment has similar methodology, but targets the specific muscles surrounding the face, neck and shoulders.
Liquid carbon dioxide is recovered from a variety of sources such as ammonia and hydrogen plants, purified and liquefied, so you know you are not putting any harsh chemicals on your face.
Following the application of the Cryotherapy gas we apply Cryotherapy Massage using the coldest massage tool on the planet.
The massage head cools to around -40 degrees centigrade and is applied to the skin via medical grade teflon head – see video. These treatments feel absolutely incredible and have amazing effects on your skin.
How does the Cryotherapy Facial Treatment work?
Albeit a tad chilly, the treatment is pain free and non-invasive. Your skin will be rapidly cooled to -78 degrees using a 50 bar pressure carbon dioxide gas treatment, with the effects starting in under 30 seconds. This reaches the perfect ‘thermal shock’ effect, changing the blood supply to the facial skin to flush out toxins and impurities.
There will be more oxygen within the facial tissues so your skin will tighten, collagen production will increase and your skin will be left feeling rejuvenated and feeling sensational, just in time for all the Christmas festivities!
How does the Cosmetic Dry Needling Facial Work?
Unlike other procedures, facial acupuncture works from the inside out to give you a healthy, radiant glow by improving skin tone and texture naturally.
Benefits of cosmetic acupuncture include increased collagen production, creation of new skin cells, improved circulation, tighter muscle tone and enhanced radiance.
Like Botox and fillers, cosmetic acupuncture aims to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as dealing with the underlying causes of these facial blemishes.
Acupuncture specifically addresses the primary factor for premature ageing, namely the reduction in collagen production.
Cosmetic acupuncture stimulates the production of collagen by painlessly inserting fine needles into specific trigger points on the face, neck and head to promote circulation and increase the volume of elastin.
It also improves local blood supply to the face which reduces the appearance if fine lines and creates better muscle tone, tighter pores and healthier facial colour.
