Benefits of Cryotherapy in a Medical Spa

Benefits of Cryotherapy in a Medical Spa

Cryotherapy is the process of using Co2 to heal and calm the skin.  The Co2 is formed into a ball (aka Ice Balls). It is typically used after a glycolic chemical peel or 2% lactic peel, especially when extractions of blemishes are performed. When extracting blemishes bacteria is spread on the skin. The use of cryotherapy kills the bacteria to heal the blemishes in a very quick manner, and also prevents future break-outs. Additional benefits include:

  • Decrease inflammation
  • Decreased pain

This therapy is not only limited to use with chemical peels, but can be used as a means of disinfecting the skin and used in other facial protocols.

How to achieve maximum results with a skin resurfacing treatment.

How to achieve maximum results with a skin resurfacing treatment.

 

Laser rejuvenation and resurfacing is popular for many reasons. It offers a solution to wrinkles, fine lines, post-traumatic scars, acne scars, sun spots, freckles and/or aging and damaged skin. Many lasers perform best when completed in a series.  However, if you are looking for results in a single treatment, the ActiveFX Laser by Lumenis® is the laser for you.  ActiveFX fractional laser can improve a wide range of skin conditions while refreshing the overall appearance of the skin.

 

Every patient’s skin is different, which is why a consultation is so important. It provides the opportunity to assess the patient’s condition and do a thorough evaluation of the skin. . This laser uses a high-energy beam of light that causes the skin’s upper layer to peel off and regenerate a layer of healthy new skin.  This achieves a dramatic effect; however, it does require approximately five days of downtime, as your skin will have associated redness and peeling.  You will see a reduction of wrinkles and fine lines as well as a softening of deeper lines. You will also see improved skin tone and texture and immediate contraction of the skin with reduction in pore size. Additionally it stimulates new collagen, you will see plumping of the skin up to six months after the procedure!
