Playing It Cool

Phebe Wahl | March 3, 2018 | Story Now In

Freezing time recently became ... gentler.

“The beauty of this is that it uses compressed carbon dioxide,” explains CompleteSkinMD’s Dr. Julie K. Karen of the newly launched CryoCorrect Precision treatment from SkinCeuticals. Freeze away age spots, sun spots and skin tags on the face and body thanks to an ultraprecise blast of carbon dioxide, which is much more mild than previous cryogens, like liquid nitrogen.

The pen-like device can target areas of hyperpigmentation and remove unwanted spots quickly with minimal downtime. The treatment is best paired with a triple antioxidant serum (like SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF) and a broad-spectrum sunscreen. “You can eradicate the spot with no scarring,” adds Karen.

Enter: the hottest new way to stop aging cold in its tracks. $100-$200 per spot, Palo Alto Laser & Skin Care, 151 Forest Ave., Palo Alto
