Brr! It’s cold in here! There must be some cryo in the atmosphere!
Now that the Bring It On flashbacks out of the way, its pretty hard to ignore cryotherapy these days with just about every celeb in the book posting pictures on Instagram, Facebook and the other 14,000 different social media platforms floating around about their cryotherapy treatment- BUT WHAT IS IT?!
The BloomMe Team were just as perplexed as you at first but after talking to our fabulous spa partners and trying it out for ourselves, we can now fully vouch for the current hottest – or coldest – beauty trend. So allow us to answer your questions.
What is cryotherapy?
Cryo means icy cold in Greek, and so Cryotherapy refers to a treatment where the skin is exposed to subzero temperatures. In a cryofacial, pressurised liquid nitrogen vapors are applied to the face and neck to boost collagen production which then tightens the skin. This form of therapy also reduces inflammation, encourages cell rejuvenation, decreases pore sizes, and improves blood circulation. So yeah, it’s pretty sweet!
Due to the tightening of the skin from this treatment, it is often called a safer (and non-toxic) version of Botox; and gaining its new name as Frotox- even though the method couldn’t be more different! Moreover unlike botox which needs a couple of days for the toxins to kick in to make you look younger; with Frotox, you can see the result instantly.
How it works
As the liquid nitrogen freezes the targeted nerves, the muscles are put into temporary hibernation – thus reducing the wrinkles. Although this sounds daunting and- let’s be honest- something out of a science fiction movie, most people who’ve tried the treatment (including us) find it to be quick, easy and surprisingly relaxing.
