How Do You Prepare for CryoSkin Facial?

Have you been thinking about trying CryoSkin? This innovative cold therapy facial leaves skin looking tighter, firmer, and refreshed. Proper preparation is essential. It optimizes the results you will achieve from this rejuvenating treatment. To make your CryoSkin appointment better, follow these easy skin care tips.

Why Preparation Matters


CryoSkin cools the skin, shrinking pores, boosting collagen and elastin, and reducing puffiness. It also improves tone and texture. But the skin must be in optimal shape for cold therapy to work its magic. If you prepare your skin well, the cold temperatures can penetrate it and give better results. Planning can help your face rejuvenate fully.

One Week Before: Hydrate and Nourish Skin


Before your treatment, drink plenty of water and care for your skin. To keep your skin healthy:

  • Drink eight glasses of water each day.

  • Nourish your skin by eating foods rich in vitamins like citrus, leafy greens, nuts, and avocado.

  • Apply a deeply moisturizing night cream each evening.

Starting skin care prep this early gives your complexion the glow factor.

Two Days Before: Use Gentle Cleansers


Continue focusing on hydration and vitamin-packed foods. Switch to a mild cleanser for washing your face twice daily instead of an exfoliating cleanser or scrub. It helps to prevent over-stripping skin right before the facial. Apply a light moisturizer after cleansing to counter any dryness. The goal is calm, balanced, well-hydrated skin.

Day Before: No Harsh Treatments


It is time to give your face a rest from irritating treatments. Avoid chemical peels, microdermabrasion, retinoids, or acidic products. They can leave skin feeling raw and sensitive. 

It compromises results and makes the cooling temperatures less comfortable. Instead, pamper your skin with antioxidant serums and a rich night cream. Wake up to radiant, happy skin.

Treatment Day: Arrive Fresh-Faced


Come to your session with a clean, product-free face. Avoid using creams, serums, or cosmetics the morning of your CryoSkin treatment. By creating a barrier, makeup and skincare residue make the facial less effective. The wand needs direct contact with your skin. Arrive relaxed and ready for your beautifying cold therapy experience.

After Your Facial: Post-Treatment Care


In the days following your rejuvenating CryoSkin session, continue nurturing your skin. Moisturize often with hyaluronic acid serums to reinforce hydration. Use mineral SPF 30 daily to protect exfoliated skin. Avoid harsh cleansers or treatments that can irritate. 

Additional Tips for Prepping Skin


Here are some extra pointers to ensure your skin gets the most from CryoSkin:

  • Avoid alcohol for 24 hours pre-treatment since it can dilate blood vessels.

  • Do not do intense workouts on the day of your appointment to prevent heavy sweating.

  • Come relaxed and ready to breathe deeply during the facial.

  • Keep your skin gently cleansed and moisturized in the weeks after.



Get your skin ready with these easy tips to maximize the benefits of a CryoSkin facial's cold therapy. Taking care of your skin before treatment helps the rejuvenation work better. Your complexion will look younger, smoother, and more vibrant after. You will see and feel the fabulous effects for weeks.
