You know what dark spots are. Those coloured areas of brown or grey pigment that show up on your hands and face. Dark spots are also called age spots, liver spots, sunspots, and solar lentigines. You can’t say that age spots are dangerous. They’re far from that. However, sunspots are anaesthetic. They look like cancerous growth, so it’s no wonder that they’re ugly. If you are exposed to UV rays constantly, from the sun or tanning booth, you will develop age spots at one point or the other. When this happens, you won’t be happy with the way you look. The great news is that you don’t have to live with age spots. Many therapies are available these days. One of the most effective treatments out there is cryotherapy. The thought of freezing your dark spots has probably haven’t crossed your mind. That’s a pity because cryotherapy works.
What is cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy is basically a treatment method that makes use of low temperatures. To be more precise, cryotherapy uses localized freezing temperatures to freeze the nerve. This form of treatment has been used since the 18th century to decrease pain as well as muscle spasms. At present, cryotherapy is largely used for some types of cancers. And of course by dermatologists to treat skin cells in a rapid manner. Attention needs to be paid to the fact that only dermatologists who have adequate training administer the therapy.
Cryotherapy and age spots
As mentioned before, there’s no medical reason why you would want to get rid of liver spots. The coffee-coloured marks are juts unappealing. If you don’t want to cover yourself up, you should try having the age spots frosted. Cryotherapy is the most popular choice when it comes to getting rid of unwanted spots on the skin. What the treatment does is freeze the sunspots with liquid nitrogen. Multiple skin lesions can be treated at the same time, not to mention that there’s no need for a local anaesthetic. Two or three weeks following the treatment, you will see a noticeable difference. More precisely, your skin will look a lot better. Besides the fact that you’ll no longer suffer from emotional distress, you enjoy increased energy and your immune system is enhanced.
What a cryotherapy session feels like
Cryotherapy involves getting into a cooled chamber that exposes your skin to freezing temperatures for a couple of minutes. You don’t have to worry that you will die from asphyxiation. Nothing of the sort will happen. Entering the cooled chamber may seem scary because you don’t know what to expect. It cannot be stressed enough that nothing scary takes place. You are provided a room to change and clothes. As for what happens in the cooled chamber, you will just feel a little bit cold. Fortunately, you have gloves and sock to keep your extremities warm.
Avoid using alternative treatments like creams and home treatments. They are completely ineffective, so you’ll be wasting your time. you should better resort to cryotherapy.
