How does Cryo Pen work ?
CryoPen uses CO2 gas which freezes the upper layer of the hyper-pigmented epidermal cells at -27 degrees Celsius in only a few seconds.
This extremely low temperature freezes water in the skin cells and in their inter-space. Frozen water spreads and breaks down the cell membrane.
The treated part of the tissue is separated from the cell as it moves towards the skins surface, drying out and within 10-14 days the area scabs up and falls off.
Cryopen can treat the following :
skin hyper-pigmentations (resulting from sun exposure or other weather conditions), scars (acne or and or injury) and benign lesions on the skin surface such as: Keratosis, Papillomas, Warts, Milia

On day of treatment, the treated area will be considerably darker. As the skin heals, it will dry up and start to fall off (similar to a scab) It takes about 10-14 days before you will see the underlying new skin appear
