About cryotherapy in Victoria.

We all know that sun damage can lead to premature aging and manifest with wrinkles, dull and dehydrated skin, sun spots, and more. Taken further, the skin can start producing precancerous rough red spots called actinic keratosis (AKs), sometimes resulting in skin cancers. These skin changes can begin as early as our twenties, and without intervention, will continue to develop over time. Luckily, as a Dermatologist center, we are aptly qualified to review the appearance of sun damage and irregular spots to provide comprehensive medical care to Victoria and Vancouver Island patients. The most common treatment for AKs is cryotherapy, a quick, effective procedure which has been shown to cure between 75% and 99% of AKs.

Cryotherapy helps with:

  • sun damage
  • actinic keratosis

How it works:

A quick, in-office procedure, cryotherapy uses extreme cold (liquid nitrogen) to cause actinic keratosis to slough off and disappear. The liquid nitrogen is sprayed directly on the lesions, using a device called CryAc. This keeps the area frozen for long enough to destroy the precancerous tissue, while leaving the area surrounding the lesions unaffected to minimize the risk of scarring. Cosmedica is dedicated to providing safe and effective solutions to reduce signs of sun damage for patients of all ages. A thorough consultation will allow us to assess your skin’s condition, and design a customized plan for your unique needs and lifestyle.
