What is CryoCorrect treatment?

CryoCorrect treatment offers a non-invasive and quick way of targeting troublesome dark spots, age spots and skin tags.

CryoCorrect treatment provides an innovative and non-invasive method for the correction of localised, benign skin imperfections such as sun and age spots and the removal of skin tags. This procedure can be performed in the comfort of your doctors office using cryotechnology to freeze away discolored skin cells. The Skinceuticals CryoCorrect Precision CO2 pen delivers a precise blast of liquid carbon dioxide (CO2), which painlessly and gently freezes away your skin imperfections, while leaving healthy surrounding cells intact.

So why has Skinceuticals developed a cryopen which utilises the freezing power of liquid carbon dioxide? Carbon dioxide is capable of freezing skin at a much milder temperature than liquid nitrogen which has been traditionally used for cryotherapy. This means that it offers a more comfortable and less aggressive freeze and the risk of damage to surrounding healthy tissue is drastically reduced.

CryoCorrect treatment is very quick – with the total procedure taking only a few minutes. This makes it a much quicker (and more cost effective!) alternative to traditional laser therapies. There is no downtime associated with the procedure either, so as soon as you are finished in the doctor’s office you can get straight back to your normal routine. CryoCorrect treatment has a much faster healing time than alternative methods and you may only need one treatment to eliminate your bothersome spot completely.

Is CryoCorrect treatment right for you?

You are researching CryoCorrect treatment as a way of eliminating your skin blemishes without unnecessary invasive treatment, but how do you know if you really are a suitable candidate for this treatment?

CryoCorrect can provide fantastic results for both men and women. If you are generally happy with the way your skin looks, but are looking to treat some distinct imperfections on either your face, body or hands, then CryoCorrect could be for you.

CryoCorrect can also be used as a follow up to a chemical peel or facial to touch up any remaining flaws.

Your suitability for treatment is something that you can discuss in more detail with your physician when you attend for your initial consultation. They will be happy to answer any questions that you may have and will be keen to provide you with all of the information that you need to make an informed decision about your treatment.

How long will your results last for?

The good news is that the amazing results that you achieve through CryoCorrect treatment are permanent! Clinical evidence suggests that permanent results can be obtained after as little as 1 or 2 treatments.

Is CryoCorrect treatment painful?

Obviously you will be keen to find out if CryoCorrect is likely to cause you any pain before embarking on treatment.

You will be pleased to hear that CryoCorrect is considered to be relatively painless. The most that you can expect to experience is some minimal discomfort, such as a cooling or tingling/stinging feeling. This should pass relatively quickly.

Are there any side effects associated with CryoCorrect treatment?

Cryotherapy using the CO2 cryopen has been well established as a safe and effective treatment. However, as with any cosmetic procedure, there is a risk of some side effects. These are typically temporary and mild, including some localised redness and swelling.

Cryotherapy can rarely lead to localised scarring. However the risk of this is significantly lower with the CO2 cryopen system when compared to other methods.

Cryotherapy can also damage hair follicles. Therefore if the procedure is performed close to areas of hair, you may experience some slight hair loss.

Very rarely, CryoCorrect treatment may lead to superficial nerve damage. This can result in temporary feelings of tingling or numbness in the treated area which can last for a few months.
