Celebs are crazy about “cryo facials” – Meghan Markle included it as part of her pre-wedding routine, it’s part of Kate Moss’ summer skin care regimen, and Mandy Moore utilizes it to keep her face glowing for award shows – but what exactly is this space-aged sounding skincare treatment?

Similar to whole body cryotherapy, cryo, or “cool”, facials utilize blasts of hyper-cooled air to treat the surface of the skin.

Plastic surgeons claim the following benefits of cold air for the complexion:

  • Keeps skin tight, vibrant and radiant
  • Puffiness is reduced
  • Pores are less visible
  • Sebum, a cause of acne, is reduced
