SkinCeuticals CryoCorrect Precision Pen

We’ve all at some point in time been hindered by brown or darker spots on our face.

For years we have used cryotherapy as a treatment for both brown and pre-cancerous lesions, but there is always the risk of swapping a dark spot for a little white scar.

With our Skinceuticals CryoCorrect Precision Pen we can now offer a non-invasive dark spot corrector and skin tag removal treatment that uses cryo technology to gently freeze away unwanted age spots, sun spots, and skin tags from the face, hands, and body.

How Does CryoCorrect Precision Pen work?
During treatment, age spots, sun spots, and skin tags are removed using a microfine burst of liquid CO2 that freezes the water in the discolored skin cell, which forces the cell to expand over time (usually four to six weeks) and combust, making the discolored spot disappear. And, its unique factor compared to other skin pens on the market is its use of liquid carbon dioxide instead of liquid nitrogen, which allows it to freeze the skin at a milder temperature and and give you the results you’re looking for with less risk of scarring
What will happen during your CryoCorrect treatment?
Due to the ease of this procedure, the CryoCorrect Precision Pen can typically be a quick add-on to your scheduled skin check.  The skin is thoroughly cleansed prior to treatment to ensure reduce any risk of infection.  The Pen is then applied to a sunspot on the desired treatment area for about five seconds, three times.  You may experience a slight cooling, stinging feeling, but overall, it was pretty painless. A bit of stinging and itchiness may last for about 10 minutes after the treatment.  You can expect the treated areas to turn red immediately following the treatment.  A scab can sometimes form after one week, and finally disappeared about 4-6 weeks later. It’s important to also keep treated areas out of the sun while the lesion is healing.
