What is a Slushie Facial?
“Slushie Facial” is a common name for cryotherapy, a cosmetic procedure that uses freezing techniques to rejuvenate
the skin. Clinically known as “cryotherapy,” this technique has long been used for decades in the field of dermatology to
restore skin health and appearance. The treatment works by applying a combination of dry ice and acetone to the skin
to reduce pore size while simultaneously removing impurities and excess oils that cause acne.
Benefits of a Slushie Facial
A Slushie Facial is a perfect alternative to chemical peels for treating acne and exfoliating the skin. Dermatologists have
been using combination treatments of acetone and dry ice for many years, and the procedure has been proven safe and
effective for acne-prone skin.
What Can I Expect from a Slushie Facial?
The Slushie Facial procedure is performed with a sphere of dry ice that is wrapped in gauze and dipped in acetone. The
sphere is approximately the size of a small snowball and is created at the beginning of your treatment. Dipping the dry
ice sphere into acetone forms a cleansing “slush” on the surface, and this is how the procedure got the name “Slushie
Facial.” The medicated slush is applied onto clean skin, and then gently removed.
How Does a Slushie Facial Differ from Other Types of Facials?
Compared to other types of acne-fighting facials, a Slushie Facial requires fewer harsh chemicals that may exacerbate
the acne and cause extensive dryness to your skin. This is also one of the few facials that is specifically designed to help
men and women with chronic acne.
Recovery from a Slushie Facial
A Slushie Facial reduces inflammation in the skin and removes acne-causing bacteria. Your skin will gradually improve
with each treatment. Slushy Facials can be repeated every week initially to rebalance the skin and eliminate acne, then
be repeated every few months as maintenance.
What Will a Slushie Facial Do for My Skin?
You will notice that your skin has less oils built up, and the acne will slowly resolve. The facial also exfoliates your skin, so
it will feel smooth.
Will Everyone Benefit from a Slushie Facial?
A Slushie Facial is not for everyone. Acetone dries out the skin, which is beneficial to patients with oily and acne-prone
skin, but may be detrimental to people with sensitive, dry or normal skin.
How Much Does a Slushie Facial Cost in Phoenix?
A Slushie Facial is considered elective by medical insurance even though it helps reduce acne. After your consultation,
we will have a better idea of how much your Slushie Facial treatment will cost. Payment can be made by cash, check or
