The thought of “freezing yourself” in the name of beauty might leave you cold, 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.


Freeze Your Youth


The Cryocure Facial ™ is non-invasive and works by means of Cryotherapy or "freeze therapy". When the skin is rapidly cooled it causes a constriction of the microcirculation vessels that is quickly followed by a vasodilatation due to increased release of transmitter substances. This series of vasoconstrictions followed by vasodilatations is known as paradoxical vasomotricity. It works to stimulate the microcirculation, promoting better oxygenation of dermal cells. Paradoxical vasomotricity enhances the penetration and distribution of unique products containing more than 50 vitamins, minerals and amino acids to energize the skin and protect against free radicals. Collagen production is greatly enhanced.

By focusing exclusively on the face with local CryoWand, the surface of the face is enhanced immediately as the pores will appear much smaller and all inflammation and “puffiness” in the face is eliminated.


The CryoCure Facial™ is a Cryogenic treatment, in which a controlled beam of vaporized liquid nitrogen is used to freeze the skin of the face, scalp, and neck area. The CryoCure Facial™ is truly one of a kind. The cold nitrogen produces an instantaneous tightness in the skin, filling in fine lines and wrinkles. Collagen is activated to produce more cells, causing skin to become more elastic over repeated use. During the CryoCure Facial™, skin vessels and capillaries undergo severe vasoconstriction (to keep the core temperature from dropping), followed by vasodilation after the procedure. Toxins and other stored deposits are flushed out of the layers of the skin and blood perfusion is improved after several treatments.


Additionally, skin’s pore size is reduced, keeping toxins, dirt and grime out. The CryoCure Facial™ flushes away built up toxins in the skin and sooths inflammation, eliminating dreaded puffiness.


This technique can:


Reduce pore size

Decrease wrinkles and lines

Stimulate collagen production

Improve blood flow

Sooths eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis

Brightens dark spots



CryoCure Facial™  entails:


-Cleansing of skin and pores

-Exfoliating dead skin cells


-Stimulate collagen production with Cryotherapy for the full face

-Application of a mask to moisturize and soothe the skin


As Yevgenya Freylikhman points out, “The effects can be seen immediately and last for up to four months. And as nitrogen occurs naturally in the body you aren’t putting a foreign substance in to your system.”




Can I catch a cold because of this procedure?


No. The immediate cold impact of the cryosession will raise the internal body temperature for a short period of time. The stimulation of the immune system can help decrease the severity and frequency of future colds.


How will I feel after the treatment?


During each session the body releases endorphins, which are hormones that make you feel good and energetic. The mood-enhancing effects from each session can last for days.
