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

       Advantages of Cryopen treatment:

  • treatment is fast and easy

  • treatment is virtually painless

  • It's considered non-invasive 

   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


          Friopen will not be able to treat the following :

  •  Dermatosis

  • Skin tumors

  • Exanthema (rash)

  • Open wounds

  • Moles

  • Malignant tumors

  • Uncontrolled diabetes   


If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, currently undergoing chemotherapy or radiation,  Cryopen treatment should be postponed till after or cleared by your doctor.  

Post treatment after care  

 In order to achieve the optimal result, the treated area of skin must be protected during the regeneration period.  Here are the things that should be avoided for the next 3 weeks. 

Long showers, swimming pools or spa treatments, any kind of peels,  using an aggressive cleanser, long sun exposures,  and the use of tanning beds.  During the day it is mandatory to use a product with SPF40 or above
