Medical science has long appreciated the role that cryotherapy has played in the advancement of healthcare technology and the treatment of patients with dire health conditions. Cryotherapy has now extended into cosmetic medicine with the advent of a procedure known as a Frozen Facial.
A Frozen Facial, also known as Frotox, is a safe and fast cosmetic procedure that can quickly improve the look, quality, and feel of the skin on your face. Find out what this treatment is and how it is performed on patients today.
What is a Frozen Facial?
A Frozen Facial is an outpatient procedure that can be performed at a medical spa or cosmetic doctor’s office. In all, the entire procedure takes around 60 to 75 minutes. It is safe, non-invasive, painless, and has few side effects or possible complications.
As its name implies, this treatment involves the use of subzero temperature oxygen as well as exfoliating crystals to remove dead skin and encourage collagen production below the top layers of your face. It can eliminate the need for invasive and extensive cosmetic surgeries like a face lift.
How is a Frozen Facial Done?
A Frozen Facial is performed in an outpatient setting like a medical spa or single day surgery center. You will not need to be sedated or put under general anesthesia. However, you may have a numbing gel applied to your skin after our provider thoroughly cleans your face.
We will then blow cold oxygen onto the surface of your skin. The cold air stimulates, energizes, and instantly cools your skin.
The next step, called micro-channeling, involves the creation of micro-channels into the top layer of your skin by blowing crystals over its surface. The micro-channels are then infused with a combination of rejuvenating ingredients. The fusion is pushed into the channels as well as the dermis or top layer of your facial skin.
The third step, referred to as an oxygen infusion, involves oxygen being infused into your skin. It fosters the exchange of oxygen in your cells and in turn encourages the production of collagen below the surface.
Finally, a cooling mask will be applied to your face. This final step can be used in conjunction with a microdermabrasion procedure. The mask will be left in place for up to an hour as your skin cools and refreshes itself.
The Benefits of a Frozen Facial
Why would you undergo a Frozen Facial instead of another non-invasive dermal treatment like microdermabrasion? The treatment offers numerous advantages to patients who want to improve the look and feel of their faces without extensive treatments.
Patients like this treatment because it:
• is fast and safe
• offers instant improvement
• eliminates wrinkles and lines
• leaves behind fresh, firm and younger-looking skin
• encourages the natural production of collagen
