Advanced Cryotherapy

What is Cryotherapy for?

Dermal fillers are a popular cosmetic treatment used to restore volume and smooth out wrinkles in the skin. They work by injecting a gel-like substance into the skin, which fills in lines and adds volume to areas that have lost their fullness. The substance used in dermal fillers is made of hyaluronic acid. This is a natural compound found in the body that helps to hydrate and plump the skin, leading to a more youthful appearance.

Here at Best You, we use the filler brands Teoxane, which is great for restoring skin volume, and HarmonyCa. HarmonyCa is a hybrid injectable, which lasts longer. It stimulates collagen and elastin production to help reduce jowls, laughter lines, and accordion lines.

Cryotherapy Treatment Areas

Targeting pigment, skin tags, red spots (Cherry Angiomas), warts, verrucae.

Frequently Asked Questions

Cryotherapy involves the use of extreme cold temperatures to freeze and destroy the affected tissue. During the treatment, nitrous oxide is applied directly to the skin growth, causing it to freeze and eventually fall off. Cryotherapy is effective in removing these skin conditions because the cold temperatures destroy the cells within the growth, preventing them from regenerating. Individuals with certain medical conditions may not be eligible for this treatment. Come and have a consultation with us to determine if cryotherapy is the right option for you.
Cryotherapy is quick, relatively painless, and requires hardly any downtime. We use nitrous oxide gas to perform this treatment. The advantage of this is that no wound forms, unlike traditional liquid nitrogen.
You can expect to see visible results within a few weeks after the treatment. The skin tag or pigmented area should shrink quickly and then fall off. However, it is important to note that multiple sessions of cryotherapy may be required for complete removal, especially for larger or stubborn skin tags. Once the skin tag is treated and removed, it is unlikely to grow back in the same spot.
Little to no downtime is required. It’s a very safe treatment with a low risk of side effects.
