The Cryo Penguin is a sophisticated unit that delivers intense, local dry/cold gases to specific areas on the skin to produce various physiological health and beauty benefits.
Cool Facial sessions are limited to 10 minutes per session, 1 per day. Spot/localized cryotherapy sessions are dependent upon area being treated.
During the Cool Facial and localized cryotherapy sessions, a cooled air stream is gently dispersed over the face or over a localized area of the body, resulting in constriction of the blood vessels in the superficial layers of the skin, forcing the blood to flow into deeper tissues. After the session, the skin begins to warm causing the blood vessels to vasodilate. The stimuli of the constriction and dilation of the arteries result in fresh oxygenated, nutrient-rich blood to the superficial tissues and cells.
Has not received Botox to the treating area within the last 72 hours, cold allergies, Raynaud’s Phenomenon, impaired circulation, peripheral vascular disease, peripheral arterial disease, open wounds, local infection, bleeding disorder, and fever. If you have any other injury, illness or medical condition, you should consult your physician prior to using a Cryotherapy Facial or Localized Cryotherapy.
Precautions: Sensitive and/or thinning skin, rheumatoid conditions, healing wounds and body piercings.
Risks include, but not limited to: allergic reaction to extreme cold (rare), anxiety, activation of some viral conditions (cold sores) etc. due to stimulation of the immune system. One primary inherent risk of a Cryotherapy Facial or Localized Cryotherapy is skin sensitivity and skin irritations. It is impossible to predict how client’s skin will reach during or after cryotherapy.
