Cryo Tool: cooling skin care for a radiant complexion

Cryotherapy actually comes from medicine, but cold treatment can now also be carried out at home. Using a cryotherapy tool can easily improve the appearance of your skin. In just a few relaxing minutes, swelling is reduced, the skin is tightened and blood circulation is improved. But our cryotherapy tool can do even more and incorporates acupressure and Gua Sha techniques.

What is Cryotherapy?

Cryotherapy or cryotherapy is a therapeutic form of treatment that uses very cold temperatures. You may have heard the term “cold therapy” before.

The cold can be applied locally to one part of the body or all over the body to stimulate a specific reaction. It is said to relieve pain, promote muscle regeneration and even help you lose weight.

Various cooling devices, cold chambers or ice baths are used for this. During the treatment you will feel a cold, stinging feeling, but this will quickly subside.

Cryotherapy actually comes from medicine, but is now also used outside of that in the wellness scene. It can be used to treat tissue injuries or even give surgical treatments. The aim is to destroy diseased or abnormal tissue in order to get rid of skin diseases.

What is a Cryo Tool?

The Cryo Tool is the size of a hand. However, it can take very different forms. One thing they all have in common is that they are made of metal so you can use the cold to provide a range of benefits for the skin. It is designed to be used on the face and neck area. Cold application is said to help stimulate blood circulation, reduce inflammation and promote healing of diseased skin areas.

The Science Behind Cryo Tools

Cryo tools use the science of cryotherapy to use cold to support healing and reduction of inflammation. The cold helps stimulate blood flow to the face, which can help reduce puffiness and dark circles under the eyes. As a further benefit, the strong, targeted cold helps to tighten the skin and give it a fresher and more radiant appearance. Last but not least, skin care products that you use during treatment are better absorbed by the skin and can work more effectively.

Thermal shock stimulates the skin to stimulate the production of collagen fibers deep within the skin. Collagen fibers are the supporting tissue of the skin and counteract sagging skin. Working with the cryo tool also greatly stimulates blood circulation, which intensively supplies the cells with oxygen and nutrients.

The skin's cell division is stimulated, which means it fights inflammation more quickly, reduces swelling and creates new skin cells. The cold can also be used to cool redness caused by inflammation and thus visibly calm it down. For a fresh, vital look and really healthy skin from the inside.

The Cryo Multi Tool: Cold Therapy, Acupressure & Gua Sha

Our cryo tool is, so to speak, a whole cryo tool set. It initially transmits cold through its metal surface. In addition, it is shaped in such a way that the tool can be used to easily treat your face like with a Gua Sha stone or an acupressure treatment.

Facial acupressure can help relieve tension and promote blood circulation for a more radiant complexion. With the round end of the Cryo

Tools can reduce bags under the eyes, relieve facial tension and calm acne.

The technique with a Gua Sha is, so to speak, like lymphatic drainage on the face. Gua Sha is a technique that comes from traditional Chinese medicine and involves applying pressure to the skin using a special tool, usually made of precious stones. This is intended to release blockages in the tissue and stimulate blood circulation. Since it can help reduce swelling, support lymphatic drainage and relax and shape the facial muscles, it is a perfect combination with the cold tool and the effect is even enhanced.

Carry out cryo treatment correctly at home

Using a cryo tool is super easy once you understand it. Our tool is also incredibly versatile and combines our favorite 3 techniques: cold, acupressure and Gua Sha.

To prepare, place both ends of the tool in ice water for 10 seconds. This is how it activates.

With the round end we treat the eye contour to reduce bags under the eyes, relieve facial tension and calm acne.

The flat side is then a cooling Gua Sha tool to stimulate lymph flow and sculpt the face.

To perform an acupressure treatment, use the round end of the tool to press firmly on various points on the face, starting at the cheekbones and working your way up to the forehead. Hold each point for 5-10 seconds and repeat the process several times.

What does cryo do on the face?

There are many benefits of using cryo tools on the face such as:

1. Less puffiness and dark circles under the eyes

A cryo tool can help reduce puffiness and dark circles under the eyes by stimulating blood flow to the area. Due to its cooling effect on the skin, it can also help reduce inflammation, leaving the eye area looking more refreshed.

2. Tightening skin and reducing fine lines and wrinkles

The Cryo Tool can help tighten skin by promoting the production of collagen, which can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The cold reduces inflammation, making the skin look smoother and more youthful.

3. Better blood circulation and less inflammation

With a cryo tool we improve blood circulation in the skin. This can also reduce skin inflammation and promote healing. Redness and irritation are visibly reduced.

4. Better absorption and effectiveness of care products

By working manually with a cryo tool, the care products used are better absorbed into the skin. They now have a deeper and more effective effect.

Are there risks with the cryotherapy tool?

There are very few risks associated with using Cryo Tool. However, it is important not to use the device on irritated or broken skin as this could cause further damage. Otherwise, just use the tool for as long as it feels comfortable for you.

How often should you have cryo treatment?

To achieve the best results with Cryo Tool, I personally now use it once a day. But you can also start slower. Since I already have previous experience with my Gua Sha sessions and use acupressure daily, my skin is used to this massage. For beginners, I would recommend increasing slowly as your skin adjusts. And of course also to use proper products that sink into the skin and take good care of it.

Which products I use for cryo treatment:

One can use a cryo tool with a variety of skin care products such as serums, moisturizing oils and masks. I've noticed the greatest benefit when I use moisturizing serums or collagen-promoting products, as the tool works them deep into the skin, thereby enhancing the effects. The products that I use every morning one after the other with the Cryo Tool:

Skin Repair Hyaluron Serum Day + Night

Skin Repair Eye Serum Skin Repair Elixir

Which skin types need the Cryo Tool?

In general, the Cryo Tool can be used on all skin types. However, it is particularly beneficial for mature or aging skin. Daily massage and lymphatic drainage keep the skin really glowy and full.

But it is just as helpful for people with sensitive or acne-prone skin, as it can reduce inflammation and promote acne healing. If you are not sure, feel free to write to me and we can take a look at your skin together.

All in all, I am really in love with Cryo Tools because they are easy to use and have taken my skincare routine to the next level. And yes, it is definitely a reason why my skin always looks so radiant, fresh and young. So why not add it to your daily routine and see the results for yourself?
