The CooLifting gun projects a powerful CO2 flow on the facial tissues, along with an extremely high concentration of atomized actives at a very high pressure and very low temperature. It is a non‐invasive treatment and thus, not painful. The application pressure and temperature are technically controlled by specific software, so that its perception doesn’t represent any discomfort. The cold CO2 flow (cryophoresis) and the atomized actives combined with the high application pressure (barophoresis) on the epidermis causes an intensive penetration of the CooLifting actives and an exponential increase of its effects.
The thermal shock caused by bringing an external intense cold source suddenly to the skin, which is normally at 36ºC, generates a dermis reaction, deep and instantaneous, while stimulating the underlying tissues. For that very same cause, the circulating vessels contract and expand alternatively to counter that cold contribution (action known as paradoxical vessel‐motricity). On top of that, we must add the benefits generated by the cryocarboxytherapy (CO2): it activates blood micro‐circulation, it induces production of collagen and elastin and it increases the tissues oxygenation.
