The thought of “freezing yourself” in the name of beauty might seem odd and uncomfortable, but new treatments that use extremely frigid temperatures are the hottest beauty trend. From reducing wrinkles and boosting radiance to firming the skin, exposing the body to plummeting temperatures can have multiple benefits. “Therapies that use cold temperature can stimulate circulation,” says Yevgenya Freylikhman the director of Skintology Med-Spa in Manhattan.
Cryotherapy has been used as early as the seventeenth century.
Today, I tried the Cryocure Facial ™ and I am now a fan. This non-invasive “freeze therapy,” starts with an amazing face massage. Then you are dried off and steamed with cold vaporized liquid nitrogen. It really wasn’t unpleasant at all and the results amazing. My pores were noticeably smaller, “puffiness” was reduced, toxins were flushed out, wrinkles and lines decrease and the darkness underneath my eyes gone. My skin felt tighter and smoother and I got a lot of compliments and I had no make-up on. Better yet I have inflammation in my hand and I was shown how this treatment can cure those aches and pains that seem laden for drugs. My hand is pain free after just one treatment.
Cryotherapy is often employed by athletes recovering from workouts or injuries. In just 3 minutes you have burnt 800 calories, rev up your metabolism, release endorphins, soothe sore muscles, improve sleep, calm inflammation, reduce cellulite, and even reverse the signs of aging. This is what models and actors do before their major award ceremonies or a big event. For this procedure you stand in a deep freeze chamber while temps plummet as low as -256 degrees Fahrenheit.
