CryoCorrect Precision


The CryoCorrect Precision Treatment is a non-invasive dark spot corrector and skin tag removal procedure. This treatment uses SkinCeuticals cryotechnology to gently freeze away unwanted age spots, sun spots, and skin tags from the face, hands, and body. Our skilled staff at the Centre for Plastic Surgery has been extensively trained by SkinCeuticals to identify, and safely treat unwanted spots.

What is the treatment like?

During treatment, age spots, sun spots, and skin tags are removed using a precise flow of carbon dioxide (CO2) which freezes the skin at a milder temperature than traditional cryogens like liquid nitrogen, resulting in a softer, shallower, more comfortable freeze, more likely to leave the surrounding skin intact. The spot or skin tag is quickly frozen for 5-8 seconds. With little to no downtime and minimal discomfort, results can be seen in as little as 1 treatment.

Who can or should receive treatment?

Almost anyone can receive a CryoCorrect Precision Treatment. We recommend that patients with a deeper complexion agree to a test spot prior to treatment. A CryoCorrect Treatment can help men and women remove stubborn age spots and sun spots that remain even after completing a series of facials, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or laser treatments. Before receiving a CryoCorrect Treatment, we require a consultation to determine if you are a candidate for the CryoCorrect Precision Treatment. If you have had skin cancer, this treatment is not recommended for you.

How long will it take to see a result?

During a CryoCorrect Treatment the spot or skin tag is quickly frozen and will turn the skin a dark color. This dark color may last between 3-5 days before a scab forms. The scab will slough off between 2-3 weeks, and normal healthy skin will appear. In some cases, the healing process varies between 4-12 weeks.

How many treatments will I need?

CryoCorrect Treatment results can be seen in as little as one treatment with visible improvement in spot appearance in as early as 4 weeks. The CryoCorrect Treatment has been clinically proven to be an effective procedure by completely removing age spots, sun spots, and skin tags in only one treatment.

Are the results permanent?

For most spots, pigment should be gone for good! However, it is possible for pigment to return in larger treatment areas.

What are the aftercare requirements?

You will receive recommendations from your provider following treatment that will include the daily use of sunscreen, an antioxidant, and possibly a pigment correcting serum. These products are essential to preventing future damage and maintaining your results.
