Beauty insiders have been using cold therapy in skincare since forever, but nowadays things are a lot more efficient and sophisticated than having to dunk your face in a bucket of ice. 

Enter: cryo tools such as ice rollers and facial freezers; the no-mess solution to de-puffing your visage and reducing pesky inflammation.

Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Shari Sperling of Sperling Dermatology explained that cryotherapy (the use of liquid nitrogen at -196.5 degrees Celsius) is a tried-and-tested way to improve skin. 


"The cold can help the appearance of enlarged pores and improve the appearance of skin," Dr. Sperling explained to In The Know.

"Cryo sticks also help to reduce inflammation, and can temporarily help the appearance of swelling under the eyes," she added. 

One way to reap the benefits of cryotherapy at home is with these Facial Freeze Tools by A-list skincare guru Georgia Louise (who counts the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Cate Blanchett and Gwyneth Paltrow among her clients).

The facial wizard could even be seen on social media working her magic on clients with the tools ahead of the Golden Globes recently.


According to their description, her convenient massage tools help to "drastically firm skin, tighten pores, reduce inflammation, enhance dead skin cell exfoliation and strengthen skin" with repeated use. 

The little gadgets should be stored in the freezer overnight, and in as little as 10-15 seconds they can work wonders.

Luckily, there are various tools harnessing the pros of cold therapy available at virtually every price point. 

When it comes to looking bright and refreshed, Dr. Sperling says some facial cryotherapy isn't the only trick she has up her sleeve.

"You can also apply vitamin C serum in the morning to help make you look well-rested and fresh," she hinted.
