- Clean Market is a luxury wellness center in New York City that offers treatments such as cryotherapy, infrared saunas, and vitamin IV drips.
- It also sells wellness and beauty supplements, and treats like CBD smoothies.
- I got a $55 cryofacial, where a technician blew -154° nitrogen gas on my face for about 12 minutes.
- It was the strangest spa treatment I've ever gotten, but I would definitely do it again.
With wellness increasingly viewed as the ultimate luxury, treatments like cryotherapy - where athletes and models expose their bodies to super-cold temperatures to soothe sore muscles and boost metabolism - are becoming more and more popular.
I visited Clean Market, a luxury wellness center in New York City that offers services such as cryotherapy and vitamin IV drips, to see what the hype was all about and to try a cryofacial, where a technician blows -154° nitrogen gas on your face for 12 minutes to supposedly give you better skin.
I got the $209 "Facial Detox" package, which includes an infrared sauna session, cryofacial, and NutriGlow IV drip, but the cryofacial by itself costs $55. Whole-body cryotherapy, for context, is $85 for two to three minutes.
Clean Market owner Lily Kunin told Business Insider that the majority of customers are neighborhood regulars who want to feel their best, boost energy and immunity, reduce stress, and increase their metabolism. She noted that the center has also had clients including NFL quarterbacks, Victoria's Secret Angels, and Real Housewives.
Here's what it was like to get a cryofacial.

I went to get a cryofacial, a $55 treatment where a stream of -154° nitrogen gas is blasted on your face and neck for about 12 minutes. It's supposed to reduce inflammation, puffiness, and dark circles, and "tighten and brighten" skin, according to Clean Market.
