The CryoPen is an advanced Cryotherapy innovation that is fast, effective and a new solution for the removal of skin imperfections like sun damage, brown spots, ageing spots, pigmentation, skin tags and warts.
With so many treatments now no longer being performed by your local doctor / GP or the NHS it is good to know that CryoPen using Cryotherapy can quickly reduce and remove blemishes such as pigmentation or sun spots. It is both CE and FDA approved
How does CryoPen work?
Your procedure treatment times are very quick and can be from 5 seconds to 5 minutes depending on the severity of the sun damage, pigmentation and brown ageing spots to be removed.
The CryoPen emits a fine jet of nitrous oxide under high pressure. This destroys the tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid which then forms ice shards and crystals. The membrane is then ruptured and the cell destroyed. There is no damage outside the treated area and it’s incredibly accurate.
Are there any side effects of CryoPen?
We regard CryoPen to have minimal risk with just a few potential side effects such as:
a) Pigmentary changes in the treated area. Normal skin colour will return in a few months. b) Where nerves are close to the treated area then potentially a little nerve damage may occur. Normal sensitivity should return within a few months. c) Hair follicle damage and permanent alopecia, especially when treating areas on sites with coarse terminal hair.
Is CryoPen painful during treatment?
There will be a pain sensation similar to a stinging nettle on the skin when the nitrous oxide reaches the bottom of the area. There might be a little residue stinging for a few minutes after treatment. The area will be slightly itchy for about 10 minutes. Occasionally a blister may appear for a few hours.
CryoPen can treat all skin types and colour including Asian and black skin. Freeze times are adjusted to suit each individual client.
