It may not sound particularly pleasant to freeze your face, but that’s exactly what a cryotherapy facial — sometimes playfully called “frotox” — does, and people are loving it.

During the facial, a machine-operated device pumps liquid nitrogen onto the face. It’s said to brighten skin, tighten pores, and maybe even reduce the appearance of fine lines or age spots, all in as little as 15 minutes.

Cryotherapy facials are a noninvasive cosmetic procedure and, unlike certain peels or microdermabrasion, they won’t leave skin looking red or raw.

Really, anyone who wants a glow is a good candidate for a cryotherapy facial, especially those who feel that their skin looks tired or dull.

If you’re pregnant or nursing, it’s best to check in with your doctor before getting a cryo facial.

How much do Cryo Facials Cost?

Because cryo facials are an elective cosmetic procedure, they’re not covered by insurance. The price ranges dramatically, depending on where you have one done. Typically, cryo facials start at around $40 and can go all the way to $150.

The facial itself is typically really quick; some take less than 20 minutes. Also, because there’s no anesthesia or redness, there’s no need for downtime — you can go right back to work.
