What is Cryotherapy?

Cryotherapy uses frozen carbon dioxide also known as CO2 to remove skin tags and dark spots. The practice has been proven clinically to be safe and effective on a wide range of benign skin lesions. It works by spraying CO2 onto the skin, which freezes at -79 degrees Celsius at the epidermal layers. As CryoClear freezes at a shallow but effective depth, the risk of blistering, scarring, and hypopigmentation is minimized. As 90% of Americans develop one or more age spots, sun spots or skin tags by the time they reach 50 years old, this service is highly beneficial to those who wish to banish these little buggers.

More about Skin Tags and Dark Spots

Skin tags are not pre-cancerous and usually form in the folds of skin.

Dark spots or hyperpigmentation is caused when DNA is damaged within the melanocytes that produce pigment to give your skin its normal color.

How long will it take to see results?

The treated area will immediately turn darker and you might experience some tingling or itching for a few hours after treatment [which lasts around 5 seconds for the freeze and about 5 minutes for the entire procedure]. The treatment site will remain dark for about 10 days when your body will peel off the dead tissue. You will then see pink healthy tissue which will return to your normal skin color in a few weeks. In some cases it may take 4 to 6 weeks for normal pigmentation.

Post Treatment Recommendations?

It is recommended to apply a calming/soothing daily moisturizer plus an SPF30+ mineral sunscreen to the treated area to keep it hydrated and protected from the sun.

How much does it cost?

Cryotherapy has a range depending on what you would like treated. A free consultation is given before your procedure so you will fully understand the costs associated with the service.

It starts at $60 for small spots and skin tags, with a discount given for consecutive spot treatments after the initial spot. Prices vary depending on the size of the treatment site as more CO2 will be needed.
