There are two different timeframes we offer. Depending on the size of the area and requirements will determine the timeframe. We have Small area sessions that last from 5 to 6 minutes and Large area session that cool for 10 - 12 minutes. The longer you cool the area will obviously be more beneficial. Generally, a Large session is initially required.
Not at all. Men can get the same, if not more out of a CryoFacial than women. Apart from all the anti-ageing benefits, the procedure also stimulates the hair follicles and promotes hair growth. This can slow or stop the balding process along with the possibility of growing that full luscious beard you have always wanted.
For best results it is recommended that your makeup is removed prior to the session but not essential.
A typical session takes 10 - 12 minutes.
This is a case by case basis. For optimal anti-ageing benefits, we recommend a treatment schedule of 2 times a week for 8 weeks. After your initial 8 weeks has passed, a maintenance schedule of once every 2-3 weeks generally results in a continued fresh-faced and glowing appearance.
After a single visit, you should notice tighter skin, reduction in facial puffiness and minimised pore size. People might notice a glow (be prepared for compliments)! Single visits are perfect for date night or special event preparations.
