What is GlacialRx®
GlacialRx® uses cooling to treat age spots, sun spots, and other pigmentation problems. At the same time, the gentle treatment calms inflammation and decreases redness. This can benefit a variety of skin conditions, including rosacea and inflammatory skin concerns, like melasma.
How does GlacialRx® Work?
Age spots and sun spots result from clusters of melanocytes, cells that produce melanin. This pigment gives skin and hair their normal color, but in age spots, too many melanocytes produce pigment in the same place. This abnormal but harmless clustering often results from sun exposure, although age spots may develop in many places.
GlacialRx® targets melanin production by freezing the melanocytes. This process is not permanent, since the goal is not to injure these cells, but to make them stop over-producing melanin. The cells that replace older, pigmented ones will look softer, more even, and with a normal skin tone. GlacialRx® can treat age spots almost anywhere on the body.
What is a GlacialRx® Treatment Like?
The wand moves over the skin, treating each section for about 15 seconds before moving on. The entire treatment takes about 45 minutes, depending on how many age spots you have treated. The treatment feels cooling and refreshing, and most people experience no discomfort. Some find the treatment soothing, especially for inflamed skin.
