Cryotherapy is most known for relieving pain and healing some injuries faster. However, you can also use it to improve your skin. Many celebrities have been using cryo regularly during the past decade to make themselves look younger and keep their skin in great condition. These are the three main skin benefits of cryo.
Local cryogenic therapy is a special treatment that focuses only on one area of the body. When you use it on your face, it may smooth out lines from furrowing your brow or wrinkles from repetitive facial movements. It does this by triggering collagen production under your skin.
Collagen provides your skin with its normal fullness and elasticity. As people age, collagen production naturally decreases and leads to more wrinkles. When you regenerate collagen, you may offset the wrinkling effects of aging on your skin.
Pore Size Reduction
Collagen also affects your pore size. Many people say that heat dilates your pores and allows you to clean out blackheads easier. However, it is better to prevent them in the first place. You can do this by reversing that logic.
Cryo causes collagen to regenerate, and this leads to your skin tightening up around loose pores. The size reduction is usually a long-lasting effect. Ample blood flow ensures an optimal result. Also, the increased blood flow from cryotherapy can reduce the appearance of dark circles under your eyes.
If you suffer from eczema and have been using creams or ointments with minimal relief, cryogenic therapy may provide you with a better result. This is also true if you suffer from dermatitis. These skin conditions and several others are often due to improper immune functions in your body. Also, some conditions are due to a lack of vital nutrients in your skin. Nutrients are often lost partially in the digestive system but also in distribution by inadequate blood circulation.
Cryotherapy increases circulation to your major vessels and even to capillaries. As the blood delivers important nutrients, enzymes and oxygen to your skin, cryo also flushes out toxins. People who suffer from skin conditions often see long-lasting results with regular cryogenic therapy treatments.
