What is CryoCorrect?
CryoCorrect is a fast and accurate treatment for smaller age spots, sun spots and skin tags. The treatment uses a fine micro jet of CO2 gas to freeze away the darkly pigmented skin caused by prolonged sun exposure. This CO2 gas is gentle on the skin, not as cold as traditional liquid nitrogen. The treatment takes only 5-8 seconds. It is well tolerated and targets only the superficial brown spots leaving the surrounding skin intact.
Where can Crycorrect be used?
Cryocorrect can be used on small pigmented lesions or skin tags anywhere on the body. It is most often used on the face, décolleté or hands. It should not be used on suspicious or unusual appearing lesions or in areas that are deeply tanned.
What can I expect during the CryoCorrect treatment?
The area is cleansed first. During the treatment you will feel a cold sensation for 5-8 seconds. You will be given a triple antioxidant called Phloretin to apply generously after the procedure. The phloretin enhances the removal of the pigment and the smoothing of the skin. It is important to apply sunscreen during the day. The spot will darken over a few hours and peel off in about 7-10 days, resulting in a light pink skin color, similar to what you might see after a sun burn. This fades to normal in a few weeks leaving the skin clear and smooth. On occasion, a 2nd treatment is needed.
How long does it take to see results from CryoCorrect?
Improvements can be seen in as little as 2-3 weeks. At this time, the darker skin has peeled off and the new skin is a light pink. This fades to flesh color on average in 4-6 weeks.
