What is Glacial Rx?
Age spots, also known as liver spots or sunspots, are benign, colored growths that can mar the complexion and make one feel self-conscious. While removing age spots has been difficult in the past, today, the Glacial Rx technology offers patients a chance to reclaim vibrant, youthful skin with a safe, non-surgical treatment customized to their goals. Glacial Rx is made by the same innovative company that brought CoolSculpting to the market and uses a cutting-edge freezing function to remove the melanin patches that compromise skin smoothness.
How does the treatment work?
While CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis, Glacial Rx utilizes a process called cryomodulation, which disrupts melanin production through cold energy. By focusing on the core causes of age spots, Glacial Rx can improve skin quality exponentially, eradicating inflammation and redness while revitalizing the complexion’s tone in less than an hour.
What are the advantages of Glacial Rx?
Glacial Rx is an excellent choice for anyone struggling with age spots who desires a minimally invasive, painless solution. Glacial Rx cools the skin as it treats imperfections, reducing the risk of swelling, bruising, and discomfort.
Additional benefits include:
- Noticeable results after a single session
- No downtime or discomfort to contend with
- No lasers or incisions
- Safe for all skin types and all areas of the body
Who is a good candidate?
Age spots — those brown, tan, or black discolorations in mature individuals — are so common that almost anyone struggling with the condition is a great candidate for Glacial Rx. While benign, these sunspots can distract the gaze from the beauty of the features. Glacial Rx tackles these flaws, restoring a smooth, attractive appearance to the skin. In addition to treating age spots, Glacial Rx is also effective in combating freckles and melasma.
What happens after my treatment?
Because Glacial Rx requires no anesthesia, incisions, laser heat, or discomfort, patients are free to return to their normal schedules immediately after their treatment. Most clients notice that Glacial Rx results can be seen and felt right away, with their outcome continuing to improve for up to 3 months. For larger sections of the skin, several Glacial Rx sessions may be required to achieve optimal improvements.
What is the takeaway?
As cosmetic technology continues to advance, patients are seeing more and more non-invasive solutions for rewinding the clock on facial aging that don’t require downtime or pain. The Glacial Rx device from the makers of CoolSculpting effectively removes age spots from the complexion, restoring your satisfaction with your image and allowing you to enjoy enhanced quality of life.
