Cryotherapy - Removal of Sun Damage, Age Spots & Hyper Pigmentation
Removal of Sun Damage, Age Spots & Others
CRYOTHERAPY - Cryopen
The Cryopen™ has millimetre precision. This allows for control of how deep the nitrous oxide penetrates and the circumference or border of the area treated. Excellent for the treatment of sun spots/pigmentation, verrucae & warts among others.
ABOUT THE TREATMENT
Initially the Pigmentation will be assessed, if I am happy that is it sun/enviromental damage and nothing more sinister we can proceed with treatment. Using Cryopen with a fine tip allowing for precision Liquid Nitrous is applied to the Pigmented area,
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER TREATMENT
The treated area becomes a darker pink/plum colour. Sometimes tiny blisters appear on the treated area. Over the 24 hours a dark scab/crust will form on the treated area - expect this crust/scab to be in place for 10 days or more if you're healing is slower. You MUST NOT pick or remove scab/crust it is allowing healing to take place. Premature removal of crust can lead to scarring. The treatment is uncomfortable but as it is in short bursts it is bearable.
Large areas need to be treated in more than one session - a quarter or a third at a time depending on size.
You will need to keep out of the sun whilst healing takes place and use a high SPF to prevent further skin damage.
AVOID TREATMENT IF YOU HAVE A SOCIAL EVENT OR SUN HOLIDAY BOOKED WITHIN 3 WEEKS OF TREATMENT
In most cases the area treated will be healed in 2 weeks to the naked eye - full healing under magnification 6 weeks. Allowance must be made for individual healing capacity.
CAN YOU WEAR MAKE UP AFTER TREATMENT
Avoid make up around the treated area for 24 hours. When you do apply and remove make up be cautious not to knock scab off.

AFTERCARE POST TREATMENT
There of pigmentation treated shall become darker in colour even turning a dark purplish colour.
Keep Moist for 1st 24 hours.
The area will scab over with a dark crust
Do not pick or agitate crust , healing is taking place & being protected by crust. Premature removal of crust can result in scarring.
Depending on your own healing expect crust to drop off within 10 days - 3 weeks
The treated area will appear a slightly paler colour as the skin will be fresh new skin, eventually this will become the same colour as surrounding skin tone.
You must keep out of the Sun whilst healing & use a high SPF after treatment to prevent further damage occurring.
Aftercare Gel/Cream suggestions
Witch Hazel Gel / Aloe Gel
Anti sceptic Cream / Savlon / Germolene
Once crust has dropped off you will have a paler/pinker area of skin where pigmentation once was, this will age & become same colour as your skin tone within time.
