Patients of any age and skin types (Fitzpatrick I-VI) are good candidates. There is NO RISK of PIH (Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation) which is a concern with other technologies (Lasers, IPL, Photofacials) in darker skin types.
Cryomodulation™ harnesses the power of cold to provide suppression of the production of melanin – which is the root cause of age spots and sun spots. In addition, the cooling process reduces redness and inflammation (rosacea) while revealing brighter and more radiant skin. During the procedure, no topical numbing or anesthesia is required. The entire treatment takes less than an hour and is designed to be comfortable and relaxing. For sun spots – a cold plate is applied for about 15 to 20 seconds per spot. There is NO DOWNTIME and you can immediately return to work and regular activities.
You can expect your age spots to show noticeable fading one month after treatment. Repeat treatments may be necessary to erase the age spots for especially dark spots or large treatment areas. Glacial™ Rx slows melanin production for an extended period, so age spots will be slow to return.
Adopting the habit of using sunscreen and minimizing sun exposure will help prolong your Glacial™ Rx results. Over time, melanin levels can increase with greater sun exposure, but in clinical trials, 93% of patients say they saw an improvement of their spots after two months.
