Skin Irregularities

CryoCorrect CO2 & High-Frequency Treatments





CryoCorrect CO2 Treatments


Safe and effective, this device features CO2 technology for precise cosmetic spot and skin tag removal.  This technology works by precisely targeting the lesion (dark spot or skin tag) and freezing tissue while leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. Treatment is quick  (only 3 to 5 seconds per spot) and painless. Typically, only one treatment session is necessary.



The CryoCorrect device specifically addresses dark spots and skin tags.




High-Frequency Treatments


A non-laser treatment option for minor skin irregularities via direct high-frequency technology.  Treatment is quick and typically, only one treatment session is necessary.  High-frequency treatments can address quite a few types of minor skin irregularities including: 




Hyperpigmentation

Flat hyperpigmentation is common, and typically harmless, but can be undesirable to some individuals.  Patches of skin can become darker in color than the normal surrounding skin. This darkening occurs when an excess of melanin, the pigment that produces normal skin color, forms deposits in the skin resulting in darker patches or spots.

Telangiectasia (Broken Capillaries / Superficial Facial Veins)

Broken capillaries are tiny blood vessels, often spidery in appearance, that can become visible near the surface of the skin. These small, red veins most commonly appear on the cheeks and/or around the nose.  Fair skin, dry skin, and sensitive skin types can be most susceptible to broken capillaries as their cell walls are more delicate and fragile.

Cherry Angiomas

Red moles, or cherry angiomas, are common skin irregularities that can develop on most areas of the body, most commonly on the torso, arms, legs, and shoulders.  Also known as senile angiomas or Campbell de Morgan spots, cherry angiomas are often bright red, circular or oval in shape, and small — usually ranging in size from a pinpoint to about one-fourth of an inch in diameter. Some cherry angiomas appear smooth and even with your skin, while others appear slightly raised. The collection of small blood vessels inside a cherry angioma give them a reddish appearance.  This type of skin irregularity is typically not a cause for concern unless it bleeds often or changes in size, shape, or color. 

Keratosis

A seborrheic keratosis usually appears as a brown, black or light tan round or oval-shaped growth on the face, chest, shoulders or back.  The irregularity appears wart-like and has a waxy, scaly, slightly elevated appearance.  A person may develop a single growth or cluster of them.  Seborrheic keratoses are normally painless and require no treatment.  However, one may decide to have them removed if they become irritated by clothing or for cosmetic reasons.

Milia

Milia are small, keratin-filled cysts that can be seen in all age groups.  These bump-like cysts form when skin flakes or keratin, a protein, become trapped under the skin.  They are usually 1 to 2 millimeters (mm) in size.  Although Milia can occur anywhere, they most commonly appear on the face, often around the eyelids and cheeks.

Skin Tags

Skin tags are small, soft, skin-colored growths that hang off the skin.  These irregularities are harmless and can vary in color and size.  Skin tags are very common and are usually found on the neck, armpits, around the groin, or under the breasts.

Cystic Acne & Blackheads

Pores are tiny openings in the skin that release oil and sweat.  Clogged pores are the result of dead skin cells getting trapped in the skin instead of being shed.  When pores are clogged, it can result in blackheads, whiteheads, and acne.

Sebaceous Hyperplasia

Sebaceous hyperplasia is a common, benign condition of sebaceous glands in adults of middle age or older.  Small bumps appear on the skin when sebaceous glands become enlarged.  These harmless irregularities can be single or multiple and appear as yellowish, soft, small papules on the face (particularly nose, cheeks, and forehead).  There are sebaceous glands all over the body, and the bumps can form almost anywhere.



Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a good candidate for High-Frequency / CryoCorrect treatments?[+]
High-frequency / CryoCorrect treatments can be done on any skin type and safe for all skin tones!  Treatments are quick and can be done over a lunch break.  A few spots may take only several minutes or less to treat.  If you are wanting treatment for many irregularities, 30-minute treatment sessions are also offered.  For larger areas of hyperpigmentation, IPL Skin Rejuvenation may be a good treatment option as well.

All skin irregularities will be checked by your treatment provider either during your free consultation or prior to treatment to ensure all area(s) of concern can be safely and effectively treated.  Any irregularities that may be of concern are to be first checked by your dermatologist prior to treatment.

For safety or other reasons, you may not be able to get this treatment if you have/are:
- not able to commit to wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily (including reapplication when sun exposure is unavoidable)
- any active condition in the treatment area, such as sores, psoriasis, eczema, and rash
- a history of skin disorders, keloids, abnormal wound healing, including very dry and fragile skin, etc.
- an individual who will pick at scabs.  Scabbing may occur post-treatment and must be left alone to heal naturally.  Scabs that are removed or fall off prematurely may result in unsatisfactory results or scarring.
- any surgical procedure in the treatment area within the last three months or before complete healing
- superficial metal or other implants in the treatment area
- pregnancy or breastfeeding
- current condition of any type of cancer, or pre-malignant moles
What are the benefits of high-frequency or CryoCorrect technology?[+]
Treatments are very quick.

Because these treatments are non-laser options, any skin type can be treated.

Very precise and ideal for spot treatments -- the ability to treat only the irregularity without having to treat an entire area.

Typically, only one treatment is needed.
When will I see results?[+]
Depending on the irregularity that is treated, you will often see an improvement within several days post-treatment.  It may take 2 weeks or longer for some treated irregularities to fully heal.  Some irregularities may require an additional follow up treatment to further improve their appearance. 
What post-treatment care is required?[+]
Post-treatment care is typically very easy, and you will receive care instructions to take home with you.  Any type of UV exposure should be avoided.  Broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or greater is to be worn daily and reapplied as directed if sun exposure is unavoidable.  Daily and appropriate use of a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or greater sunscreen should become a permanent component of your daily skin care regimen.

Treatment of certain irregularities may result is scabbing post-treatment as part of the healing process.  Scabbing must be left alone to heal naturally.  Absolutely no picking.  Scabs that are removed or fall off prematurely may result in unsatisfactory results or permanent scarring. 
How many treatments will I need and how often?[+]
Typically, only one treatment is needed to remove or significantly improve most minor irregularities.  Treatments can be done every 4 to 6 weeks.  A follow-up appointment will be scheduled after your treatment to determine if additional treatments are necessary for further improvement.
How much will my treatments cost?[+]
Treatment costs are very affordable and can be per spot or per 30-minute session.  We offer free consultations to determine whether or not your areas of concern are treatable irregularities, provide treatment cost, and discuss the best treatment option for you.
