Cryotherapy CryoPen Skin Imperfection Treatment

CryoPen is a state of the art treatment that uses extreme cold, or cryotherapy, to painlessly and safely destroy unwanted, benign and superficial lesions on the surface of the skin. This innovative treatment is a fast, effective, safe and new solution for removal of skin imperfections. Procedures typically last from 10 to 60 seconds, so you can be in and out of the salon quickly.

What is the Cryopen treatment and is it safe?

The CryoPen™ emits a fine jet of nitrous oxide under high pressure, which allows the clinician to work with millimetre precision. This destroys the tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid. The temperature drop has the effect of crystallising the fluid contents of the targeted cells, turning them into ice shards, resulting in the destruction of skin lesions as the membrane surrounding the treated cells is ruptured and destroyed. The penetration of the cold is approximately 1mm per 5 seconds of treatment, so a 2mm sized lesion would take 10 seconds of nitrous oxide gas to treat. That means there will be no collateral damage to healthy tissue. It’s so incredibly accurate and practical.

Who is a good candidate for Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is beneficial for patients with rough, dry skin; superficial hyper pigmentation; mild acne scarring and those with fine lines and wrinkles. Removing the epidermal skin also allows products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers. Dermaplaning is safe and effective for all skin types and colors and provides an alternative to chemical peels or microdermabrasion. It is a good choice for anyone who has fine facial hair, extremely sensitive skin, redness or rosacea, or visible facial veins. This is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the use of chemicals. Dermaplaning cannot be performed in individuals who are using Accutane or blood thinners or who have active shingles, hemophilia, or weak delicate skin. If you suffer from acne or over production of oil, we do not recommend dermaplaning.

Will the facial hair grow back thicker?

No. There are two types of hair. Fine facial hair or “peach fuzz” is called vellous hair and is the light colored translucent hair that grows on a woman’s face, chest, or back. The other type of hair is called terminal hair, which is the coarser hair you see on the head, under the arms, brows, and the lower face of men. Hairs are always one or the other and they are not damaged or altered by the process of cutting or removal. So after dermaplaning, vellous hair grows back with its same characteristics.

How often can dermaplaning be done?

Dermaplaning can be done every 3-4 weeks. Treating the skin in this manner removes about 2 – 3 weeks’ worth of dead skin cells. The technician should allow the skin to complete its normal skin cycle of approximately 30 days before repeating.

Can Dermaplaning be performed in the same visit as a peel?

A peel done immediately after dermaplaning is an excellent way to make sure that the peel penetrates deeper and more evenly. They go great together and we recommend the combination for optimal results.

What should i expect after my Dermaplaning treatment?

You’ll immediately look more radiant with a more even skin tone and texture. While the main objective of this treatment is exfoliation, the immediate removal of peach fuzz is an added benefit which renders the skin exceptionally smooth and soft.  Skin care products are better able to penetrate the skin following a dermaplaning service which allows them to work more efficiently. Your cosmetics will also go on smoother.

How should I care for my skin after Dermaplaning ?

After the treatment, your skin will be highly sensitive to sun exposure and may look pink. Treat the skin gently, using only hands to cleanse for at least 2 days. Be sure to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation.
