CryoPen® – The Skin Perfector
CryoPen® is an advanced cryotherapy innovation that is a fast, effective, safe and new solution for removal of skin imperfections. Procedures typically take from 5 to 25 seconds, so you can be in and out of the salon in no time.
The CryoPen® emits a fine stream of nitrous oxide under high pressure, this allows the clinician to work with millimetre precision. This destroys the tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid, forming ice crystals which rupture the membrane, thereby destroying the cell.
Many cosmetic procedures such as skin tags, milia and cherry angiomas are no longer being treated by many doctors on the NHS. With CryoPen® you can have these treatments.
CryoPen® offers the ideal treatment for:
- Skin tags
- Solar lentigo
- Age spots
- Cherry angioma
- Viral verrucae
To ensure great results for those who have darker skin, we recommend repeated short freezing cycles of 3 to 6 seconds at two week intervals.
How it works
The CryoPen® freezes at a rate of approximately 1mm per 5 seconds.
First Cycle – Freeze
The CryoPen® is held as close as possible to the skin imperfection, and moved quickly towards and away from it. Depending on its size and depth, this could be from 1-30 seconds.
After the first freeze cycle, the tissue is allowed to thaw for around 30 seconds.
Second Cycle – Freeze
Now the second freeze cycle can take place. The tissue typically freezes faster than the first cycle.
