Face freeze – The latest anti-wrinkle trick?
Face freeze, the new non-invasive Botox is the latest buzz word in the derma world
One thing that begins to change when you hit your thirties is your skin. This is the age when those faint lines and wrinkles begin to appear. And getting Botox done is something most of us try and push till we’re in our early to mid fifties.
We’ve advanced so much that we’re even growing vegetables in space. Case in point, the Red Romaine Lettuce. Then how difficult could it be to remove wrinkles without using a scalpel. Well, if you asked me a few years back my answer would’ve been short and simple, it’s impossible.
But now enters, oh drumroll please, face freeze also known as cryotherapy facials, into the derma world. Frotox (face freeze + Botox) is basically a procedure in which your face is frozen to reduce wrinkles, irregular pigmentation, and blemishes. Now that’s something I would go for.
The liquid Nitrogen and 100% Oxygen combination is applied to your skin. The entire procedure takes less than 30 minutes. How it works is, the liquid Nitrogen acts as an exfoliator to rid your face of any dead skin cells and stimulate cell renewal. Oxygen, on the other hand, works as a cleaning and healing agent for any damaged skin cells.

This technique can reduce acne, minimizes lines and wrinkles, restores radiance and increases collagen production.
Cryotherapy facial isn’t only meant to rid your face of wrinkles. It has more benefits than what meets the eye:
- Makes your skin radiant and firm.
- Skin conditions such as eczema can be treated.
- Soothes inflammation.
- Lightens scars left by acne.
- Helps reduce pigmentation or uneven skin tone.
- Helps in rejuvenating fatigued skin.
- Stimulates brightness.
- Promotes even texture & tone.
- Improves blood circulation.
- Tightens the skin.
- Decreases puffiness.
- When treating the scalp, it stimulates hair growth by increasing blood flow.
The upsides of getting cryotherapy facials is that it is non-invasive, painless, fast and there is no downtime.
Given that Frotox is in its early stage right now it is very difficult to state the long term advantages of this treatment. However, the use of ice or cold therapy is not anything new. I mean who hasn’t used an icepack or a bag of peas on a swollen wrist?
With the derma world coming up with new ways to deal with cosmetic problems, ice could be a very good solution.
