The Cryo-Sticks from Biologique Recherche are used in treatments to calm, cool and tighten the skin, as they ad a nice finishing touch after the application of creams and serums.
Stored in the refrigerator, Cryo-Sticks store maximum thermal energy, ensuring cold is diffused in contact with the skin. The local application of cold through Cryo-Sticks lowers the skin’s temperature immediately, therefore limiting vasodilatation and promoting vasoconstriction. Dermal blood circulation is regulated and redness disappears.
In addition to its soothing properties, cold has a draining, decongestant and firming effect. The cold sensation is picked up by receptors in the skin, causing a “goose bump” phenomenon, which stimulates nerve cells in the skin and has a tightening effect on the epidermis.
