Are you unhappy with skin lesions within your complexion? Are warts, moles, or dark spots changing the way you feel about your appearance? Many patients experience complexion imperfections that they wish to get rid of. At Refresh Evolution, we offer the latest technologies for the treatment of many skin conditions. If you are searching for a remedy for smooth and healthy skin Cryotherapy treatments could benefit you.
What is Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy is a non-invasive procedure that harnesses the power of extreme cold to destroy unwanted or irregular skin tissue. It is a process known as cryo-necrosis, which refers to tissue destruction through rapid freezing. We utilize FreezPen Cryotherapy Technology to complete our treatments. This advanced pen produces a thermodynamic process that uses a cryogenic Nitrous Oxide (N2O) gas which is compressed at 725 PSI (very high pressure). When nitrous oxide is released from the FreezPen as a jet of gas, it expands at -89°C and immediately freezes the affected lesion. This is effective at destroying the lesion for a clear and even complexion.
What can be Treated?
Cryotherapy is suitable for treating a range of skin imperfections including:
- Dark spots
- Age spots Skin tags
- And more!
What to Expect
Like with any aesthetic treatment, an initial consultation is first required in order to create a treatment plan that is tailored to you and your specific skin needs. The procedure is performed in the comfort of our office and does not require any anesthesia. During treatment, the FreezPen is held to the targeted treatment area. The extreme cold temperature is then applied to the skin flaw. The process is comfortable and there is no pain associated with the procedure. It usually takes no more than a few minutes to complete the treatment, and because it is non-invasive, there is no required downtime afterwards. Following Cryotherapy, it usually takes about 2-4 weeks for the targeted lesion to fall off. However, some lesions are more persistent and take longer to disappear. Most lesions require only one treatment, but larger lesions may require 1-2 treatments in order to achieve optimal results. With this revolutionary treatment, you can reclaim clear and healthy skin.
