Cryomassage of the face with liquid nitrogen

“In the cold of winter, everyone is young.” It is no coincidence that such a proverb was born, because our ancestors knew firsthand about the amazing properties of cold, so they skillfully applied this method to keep their skin young and healthy. And as a result, Russian beauties favorably differed with snow-white skin and a radiant blush. In modern cosmetology, this method of improving the skin is actively used, namely: cryomassage of the face with liquid nitrogen.

Mechanism of influence

Liquid nitrogen upon reaching the boiling point of -196C is a transparent liquid without color and odor.

The consequence of contact with the epidermis is its pronounced reaction in the form of instantly narrowing and expanding blood vessels, which enhances the flow of not only blood, but also useful microelements dormant in the deep layers of the skin.

The renewal mechanism is launched by exfoliating dead scales, thereby providing a new breath and accelerating metabolic processes in them.

Before the procedure, the skin is treated with 70% alcohol or soap to disinfect. Liquid nitrogen is applied to the skin with a wooden stick, on which a cotton swab is fixed. Its value should be wider than the treated area. During the procedure, the stick is lowered into a container with liquid nitrogen and fast, sliding movements follow the massage lines in several stages for 3-5 minutes each.

Contact with liquid nitrogen does not cause discomfort, only a slight tingling, numbness and pulsation in the freezing zone is possible. To achieve maximum results, the skin area with the presence of warts, inflammatory processes, papillomas and growths is eliminated by local application of nitrogen to problem areas. In order to cauterize the inflammation, nitrogen is applied pointwise to it, until frost appears, and this serves as an indicator that the reaction was successful. The procedure is carried out by a specialist who controls the degree of reaction and regulates the level of skin cooling.

What you need to know

On the day of the procedure, it is advisable not to apply tonal, concealer and the rest, as it is important that the face is as clean as possible. After the completion of cryomassage, contact with water for 6 hours is unacceptable – during this period of time, the skin will be especially susceptible to external stimuli. For several days, intense peeling is possible, since nitrogen has a strong exfoliating effect. To experience all the benefits of this procedure, it is recommended to conduct it in a course of at least 10-15 sessions. For the prevention of aging, it is desirable to conduct a course 2-3 times a year, for the prevention of acne 1-2 times a year.


Cryomassage of the face with nitrogen is a truly unique technique that successfully fights such skin imperfections as:

  • Acne;
  • Closed comedones;
  • Black dots;
  • Uneven facial tone;
  • Dark spots;
  • Enlarged pores;
  • warts and growths;
  • Mimic wrinkles;
  • porous;
  • Rosacea
  • Post-acne;
  • Cardiovascular diseases.

Cryotherapy with liquid nitrogen is good because it gives a qualitative result in the treatment of acne of varying degrees of complexity, such as: late acne, spherical, papulopustular, inverse, nodular cystic, phlegmonous.

Excess sebum is removed, porosity and the “orange peel” effect are removed. The skin acquires a delicate pinkish tint, becomes more elastic, even and smooth. To achieve speed in the fight against acne, it is recommended to combine cryotherapy with other available treatments.

It is one of the most effective procedures in the fight against warts and papillomas. For complete removal of warts, it is necessary to carry out from 1 to 5 sessions with an interval of 3-5 days.

With a deeper effect of nitrogen on the skin, bubbles similar to dropsy appear, which subsequently form crusts.

In addition to solving a number of such complex cosmetic problems, liquid nitrogen cryotherapy is indispensable in aesthetic cosmetology, it covers a wide range of defects of various etiologies.

Perfectly copes with sagging skin, a grayish-green tint, removes chronic bruises under the eyes, smoothes mimic wrinkles, enhances the effect of beauty injections and injection techniques in general, it is previously used for dermabrasion and peeling, as it contributes to better adaptation and preparation of the skin for further procedures .

Often, cosmetologists resort to cryotherapy to close pores and soothe the skin after cleansing or remove congestion after Botox injections.


The elimination of such a problem as demodicosis is also the merit of cryotherapy using liquid nitrogen. With its help, you can remove both the source of the problem and its consequences. As you know, demodex is a tick that lives freely on the human body and the process of its reproduction is regulated by the immune system. In healthy people, the demodex mite population is within the normal range – in patients, it goes far beyond its borders, which leads to inflammatory processes on the skin.

During the procedure, not only is it achieved by suppressing the activity of the parasite, but also the activation of immune resources occurs, which give a strong impetus to the body’s defense forces, which serves as a natural protective barrier.

Thus, cryotherapy works with all the mechanisms inherent in the body, which together gives the achievement of the desired result for a long time.


Despite the safety of the procedure, it is still worth noting that it is not suitable for everyone, namely the owners:

  • Skin with increased dryness;
  • open wounds;
  • Couperose;
  • Cold respiratory diseases;
  • elevated temperature;
  • Allergic reactions to cold;
  • Epilepsy;
  • Herpes;
  • Exacerbation of chronic diseases;
  • Side effects;
  • Necrosis;
  • Hyperemia;
  • Ice burn.

It must be remembered that it is impossible to predict how the procedure will turn out. Even if you have no contraindications to it, it all depends on both the individual characteristics of the skin and the choice of a specialist. You can trust your health only to certified clinics with a good reputation.

As for pregnancy, then the decision is made by the beautician, based on the state of your health. It is not recommended to carry out the procedure in the summer.

So, cryomassage with liquid nitrogen today gives positive results in the fight against a significant number of skin diseases and cosmetic defects. Since this method of treatment is actively used in medicine in order to improve the whole body, it can be said with confidence that it will have no less beneficial effect on the face.
