Cryotherapy (Skin Concerns)
Cosmetic procedures such as skin tags, milia and cherry angiomas are no longer being treated by many doctors on the NHS. With the CryoPen™, these treatments are now available at Elle:
CryoPen™ offers the ideal treatment for:
How does it work?
CryoPen™ is an advanced cryotherapy innovation that is a fast, effective, safe and new solution for removal of skin imperfections. Procedures typically last from 5 to 25 seconds, so you can be in and out of the salon quickly.
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, forming ice shards and crystals which rupture the membrane, thereby destroying the cell. That means there will be no collateral damage to healthy tissue.
How does it work?
The treatment is carried out using cryo-cups, which are used to suck in and cool stubborn fat-bearing areas. Cooling is maintained for a pre-determined time period to cause damage to the fat cells. The cells crystalise and disperse, and they then begin a natural removal process which continues for several months, resulting in the gradual reduction of the fat layer.
How long does it take?
Some people notice a change as soon as 2-3 weeks after treatment, however your body will continue to flush out fat cells for up to 4months after your treatment, so this is when you will see optimum results. Most people only need one treatment on their chosen area, although others may decide they require more. We carry out a thorough consultation in order to determine your needs.
There is no down-time with this treatment as it is entirely non-invasive.
Are there any adverse effects?
Some people may experience temporary numbness, swelling, tenderness and bruising, which completely resolves.
