Skin imperfections. Perfected.
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, verrucae and warts.
Cryotherapy is a quick, safe and painless treatment using liquified nitrous oxide to freeze and destroy benign skin lesions and tissue. The inter-cellular fluid applied via the pen forms ice shards and crystals which rupture the cell membrane and destroy the cell.
You will experience 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. Cryotherapy can treat all skin types and colour including Asian and black skin. Freeze times are adjusted to suit each individual client.
ChromaDerm uses CryoPen™ which is accurate, quick and safe and suitable for all skin types. It is the first cryotherapy device with micro technology which enables safe and high delivery precision; only the lesion is frozen, avoiding healthy tissues.
How does it work?
Tissue destruction occurs when cells are low in temperature and at least -80 ° F and ice crystals will form. The ice crystals break the cell membrane, destroy the cells organelles and protein matrixes. Water then rushes into the surrounding area causing blistering and disruption of the local blood supply. Cryotherapy is quicker than other treatments are there are no limitations on activity except to protect the area from damage or abrasion. You can work, bath, swim, immediately after the treatment. There’s no cut, no bleeding, no sutures and no risk of infection.
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 sunspots. It is both CE and FDA approved so is very safe.
