Cryoskin Facials vs Botox: What is the Best Anti-Ageing Treatment?


While ageing is a natural part of life, many of us are still chasing the fountain of youth to maintain younger-looking skin for as long as we can.


Botox is a popular choice for both men and women to slow down the cosmetic effects of ageing. In fact, it is the most popular cosmetic treatment Australia. While it is able to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, is it really the best option for longer-lasting youthful and radiant skin?


Cryoskin’s Cryo Facial is an effective and natural alternative to Botox injections. No needles or nasty side effects, this non-invasive treatment is effective in reducing fine lines and wrinkles and stimulating the production of collagen. You can literally freeze the ageing clock with the cold vapours of a Cryo Facial.


So how does it compare to Botox? Let’s find out.


How Does Botox Work?

Botox is a toxin that is injected into the muscles to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines such as crow’s feet and forehead lines. It works by blocking chemical signals from the nerves to the muscles, temporarily paralysing the muscle. This stops the muscles from contracting, relaxing the facial muscles that cause wrinkles.


So, What is a Cryo Facial?

The Cryo Facial is a type of cryotherapy facial which uses cold liquid nitrogen vapours to gently massage the face and neck. The cold penetrates deep into the layers of tissue, increasing circulation, boosting the production of collagen and elastin and retracting your pores to leave your skin glowing.


The anti-inflammatory benefits of the cold help to reduce redness and treat skin conditions such as rosacea. It also improves the appearance of any inflamed areas, minimises puffiness and firms and tightens the skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The Cryo Facial is an effective way to make your skin naturally look fresher and younger, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Does Botox Hurt?

If you’re not a fan of needles, then Botox injections may not be ideal for you. However, the needles used for Botox are very small, and most people will only feel the sensation of a pin prick and slight stinging. Each session is different but will usually involve no more than 10 pin pricks. The treatment area is usually numbed with a topical anaesthetic cream or cold pack before the injections are given. Once this wears off, you may feel some discomfort as mild pain, swelling and bruising are commonly experienced after Botox. After your treatment, it is recommended to avoid laying down for the first 4 hours and to avoid strenuous exercise for up to 24 hours afterwards. Blood thinning medications should also be avoided to prevent bruising.


Does a Cryoskin Facial Hurt?

No, there is no pain involved with a Cryoskin Facial. You simply lay down, relax and shut your eyes while enjoying the gentle cold massage on your face. Most customers find this experience to be very relaxing and the cold will help you to feel refreshed and rejuvenated afterwards. A technician will monitor the temperature to ensure you are comfortable and safe the entire time. There is no downtime involved with a Cryo Facial – you can go back to your daily activities without any risk of pain.


How Long Does Botox Last?

Liposuction can remove around 5 litres of fat, or roughly 4.5 kilograms. Removing any more than this is generally not considered safe. Lipo is not necessarily a weight loss procedure, but rather a way to lose fat and shape the body to a desired shape.

Interestingly, one study found that one year after the liposuction procedure, participants still had the same amount of body fat prior to the surgery, and it had just been redistributed to other areas.


How Long Do Cryo Facial Results Last?

After just a 20 minute session, results are visible immediately and your skin will instantly feel firmer and tighter. It is recommended to do one session every week for 5 weeks, and then 1 session per month to keep your fine lines and wrinkles at bay. This helps to maintain a higher production of collagen and elastin. The effects of this treatment will last for several months and with repeated sessions you are more likely to see long-term effects.

What are the Side Effects of Botox?

We’ve all heard horror stories about Botox going wrong, with widespread reports of botched procedures being performed by inexperienced or unqualified practitioners. However, it is a relatively safe procedure when performed by an experienced doctor and when the right amount of Botox is used.


Some of the possible side effects include:


• Pain, swelling or bruising at the injection site

• Headache or flu-like symptoms such as fever and chills

• Difficulty swallowing

• Drooping eyelids or uneven eyebrows

• Muscle stiffness or weakness

• Crooked smile or drooling

• Nausea

• Eye dryness or excessive tearing

• Neck pain

• Allergic reactions

What are the Side Effects of Cryoskin Facial?

As the Cryoskin Facial is a non-invasive procedure, there are no side effects involved. There may be some slight redness of the skin but this will disappear straight after the session. To avoid any risk of irritation, your makeup will be removed beforehand.

How Much Does Botox Cost?

A single Botox treatment can cost anywhere from $300 to $700, depending on the targeted area and how many units are required.

How Much Does a Cryo Facial Cost?

A single Cryo Facial treatment costs around $300 - $350, with most places offering a discount of a package of 5 treatments.
