How Does Cryotherapy Work?

Cryotherapy is a fast, effective and safe solution for removing brown spots and skin imperfections.  A fine spray of CO2 is administered with a pen-like device under high pressure on the lesion or spot.  This application destroys the tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid only in the damaged cells with no impact on healthy cells.

Done in Seconds!

Cryotherapy procedures typically last from 5 – 25 seconds. The typical process is simple:

  • The treated area freezes and turns white.
  • When the white area thaws, a flushing occurs and the area turns red.
  • Thawing is associated with a pinching sensation as a weal is formed and only lasts a second.
  • The weal typically blisters in 2-24 hours.
  • The blister lasts 3 to 5 days before it scabs.
  • The scab will fall off within 2 weeks, and should be allowed to fully heal and fall off on its own to keep from scarring.
  • The lesion will be completely healed in 2 to 6 weeks.

Results are long lasting.  The procedure leaves less scarring than other removal techniques and there is minimal post-procedure care.

What do our clients say?
“I couldn’t believe how easy this was.  I had a large age spot beside my eye and another on my breastbone.  Both were front and center. I wish I had known about this sooner because it was quick and inexpensive, and I swear I look younger without the spots.”  Denise K.
