What is Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy is an advanced innovation treatment that is a fast, effective, safe and a new solution for the removal of skin imperfections. Procedures last from 5 to 25 seconds, so you can be in and out of the salon quickly.
How it works?
By emitting a fine jet of nitrous oxide under high pressure, which allows millimetre, this destroys the tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid, forming ice shards and crystals which rupture the membrane and destroying the cell.
There will be no collateral damage to healthy tissue.
First cycle - freeze
The applicator is held as close as possible to the skin imperfection and moved quickly towards and away from it. This could be from 1 to 30 seconds, depending on the size and depth.
After the first freeze cycle, the tissue is allowed to thaw for about 30 seconds.
Second cycle - freeze
Now the second freeze cycle will begin. The tissue will freeze faster than during the first freezing cycle.
