Cryoclear Indications to Treat
-Spider veins (face only)
-Acne (scars only)
How It Works
- Cryoclear works by spraying CO2 onto the skin, which freezes superficially at -79 C or -110 F where only the epidermal layers are treated. Cryoclear greatly minimizes the risk of blistering, scarring and hypopigmentation that is usually associated with colder forms of cryotherapy due to its shallow but effective depth of freeze. It can treat indications such as skin tags, age spots and sun spots on sensitive areas like the hands, face and neck.
Depth Of Freeze
-CryoClear is administered on any given indication for no longer than 5 seconds at a time. As shown in the diagram, the ice balls that forms within the epidermis does not penetrate into the true skin of the dermis which contains blood vessels, lymph vessels, hair follicles and glands that produce sweat. This makes cryoclear the perfect solution for treating superficial indications.
How long will it take to see results?
-The treated area will immediately become darker and it is normal to experience tingling or itching for a few hours after treatment. The treatment area will remain dark for about 10 days then your body will slough off the dead tissue. Then you will see pink healthy tissue which will return to normal skin color after a few weeks. In some cases , it can take 4 to 6 weeks for normal pigmentation to return.
Are there any post treatment recommendations?
-With CryoClear , you have no lifestyle restrictions and continue normal daily activities. It is recommended to apply a soothing daily moisturizer and SPF 30 sunscreen to keep the treated area hydrated and protected from the sun.
Can people with sensitive skin be treated with CryoClear ?
-Due to its gentle freeze it is safe to use on people with sensitive skin. If you are concerned over the possibilities of using Cryo Clear, it is recommended to consult with our esthetician to determine the appropriate treatment time for your skin type.
