Germain Chill is a way to recover, rejuvenate, and revitalize your skin and body by harnessing the power of ultra-low temperatures. At Germain Dermatology, we offer three types of cyrotherapy so Charleston, SC, patients can tailor the treatment to their needs.
This approach uses cold to treat everything from rheumatoid arthritis to aging skin, and can help with postsurgical recuperation. The treatment welcomes a patient into a single-person Cryosauna, which offers safe, one- to three-minute exposures to very low temperatures. This exposure has anti-inflammatory benefits that extend into the weeks and months after a chill session. The whole-body approach is ideal for systemic problems, as well as musculoskeletal injuries, psoriasis and other skin disorders, and weight management. This treatment is available as a single procedure, or in packages of three, five, 10, or 20.
A more focused approach, local cryotherapy, rapidly cools a specifically targeted area with a beam of cryogenic nitrogen gas. This has the same effect anti-inflammatory effect as the Whole Body Cryotherapy method, but is applied as needed directly to the neck, arms, hands, back, legs, or feet to relieve both chronic and acute conditions there.
Even more specifically, pressurized liquid nitrogen vapors can be used to reduce the size of pores and stimulate collagen production on the face. The Cryofacial tightens laxity, improves circulation and tone, and is available as a single treatment or in packages of five or 10.
