CryoCorrect Questions and Answers

From freckles to skin tags and discoloration, we all have brown spots on our skin. As common as they may be, these spots can make you appear older or have your skin labeled as unflattering. In as little as one 5-8 second treatment, CryoCorrect can help dramatically reduce or even vanish dark spots, sun spots, and skin tags that have been unsuccessfully removed with other skincare treatments.

What Is CryoCorrect Precision Pen?

CryoCorrect Precision Pen is a quick, non-invasive treatment for eliminating dark spots and removing skin tags. The pen-like CryoCorrect device delivers a quick blast of extreme cold to gently and quickly freeze away outer layers of damaged skin. The treated area is then able to heal with healthy, unblemished skin. With hardly any downtime or discomfort during treatment, you can enjoy visible results in as little as one treatment.

How Long Does the Treatment Take?

The entire CryoCorrect process takes less than 15 minutes. During your procedure, the pen is applied to the treatment spot for about 5-10 seconds up to 3 times. Your treatment is performed in our comfortable and relaxing, state-of-the-art medical spa by our licensed providers.

Is the Procedure Painful?

Unlike other cryo treatments, the CryoCorrect Precision Pen uses the mildest freezing temperatures to eliminate your unwanted spots and skin tags. The process is quick, and most people do not experience any pain for discomfort during treatment.

How Long Is Recovery Time?

The entire treatment is performed quickly and efficiently. You are typically allowed to proceed with your daily activities and routine immediately after the procedure. The recovery time in specific areas can take about 4 to 8 weeks. Visible improvement can be seen within a few weeks.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Most spots are able to be removed in as little as one session. Depending on the size of the treatment area and your skin type, you may require more than one treatment. Your provider will be able to provide you with more information at your consultation.

When Will I See Results?

Most patients are able to achieve a normal, healthy skin appearance in about 2 to 4 weeks after CryoCorrect. In some cases, the healing process takes up to 12 weeks.

Are Results Permanent?

Our skincare experts at Hinsdale Vein & Laser will help you design an optimal treatment plan to maximize your desired results. For most patients, a simple two-step protocol, in addition to their regular skincare regimen, works well to help them achieve maximum and permanent results.

To help maximize your results, you should incorporate the following after treatment:

Vitamin C Serum

Utilizing a once-a-day Vitamin C antioxidant serum has been studied and shown to accelerate healing after CryoCorrect and to improve skin smoothness in the area.

Broad-Spectrum SPF 30+ Sunscreen

It’s essential to keep healing skin protected from the sun to avoid discoloration. Always use a high-quality, broad-spectrum sunscreen, and remember to re-apply throughout the day to ensure your skin is protected from damaging UV Rays.

Who is a Good Candidate?

CryoCorrect is an ideal treatment option for anyone who is generally happy with their skin appearance, but may also have a limited number of distinct flaws on their face, hands, or body that they want to remove.

CryoCorrect is also frequently recommended as a touch-up following a series of chemical peels, facials, or laser skin resurfacing treatments to target skin tags or dark spots that didn’t adequately respond to these treatments.
