Acne and scars, body cracks, some skin blemishes are problems that are difficult to solve. In the field of aesthetic medicine, different methods have been developed and applied for years on these issues:
1- Laser treatments (Er:YAG, Er:Glass, CO2 lasers and fractional forms of these lasers)
2- Other methods (Dermabrasion, Microdermabrasion, chemical peels applied with various depths, etc.)
In addition to the aim of getting the best results in medical and cosmetological treatments, it is also very important to reduce unwanted side effects as much as possible. Today, it is important that the selected treatment method is as short as possible, whether it has side effects or not, as well as the effectiveness of the selected treatment method.
The “ELECTROCRIOTHERAPY” method, which was developed considering these points,
It is an effective and different method for acne and scars, body cracks and spots. The treatment is carried out by applying the cold effect at approximately -32 degrees to the skin at specified times. The effect of this method can reach a depth of 2-4 mm in the skin. The collagen structure, which provides the main vitality and support role in the skin, is located at this depth.
Traditional cryotherapy (freezing therapy) using liquid nitrogen gas (-196 degrees nitrogen) is a treatment method that has been used in medicine and dermatology for a very long time. However, in this old method, the middle part of the area where rapid cooling is made freezes excessively, and the intact skin on its side cannot be adequately protected. The depth to be affected is exceeded uncontrollably, and therefore, undesirable side effects (ulcerization, discoloration, scar-mark, etc.) may occur.
How are Applications Made?
The appropriate cap is selected according to the size and shape of the lesion or the problematic area, and the skin is contacted for the period determined by the physician. During the treatment, a feeling called “cold bite” occurs for a very short time. In patients who do not want to feel this, topical anesthetic creams can be applied to the application area half an hour before the treatment. After the treatment, there will be a crusting that will last for 3-4 days in the application area, and a new skin with a slight pink color will begin to form, and the skin will return to normal in approximately 3-4 weeks.
The number of sessions varies depending on the type and depth of skin problems, and an average of 1-6 sessions may be required.
Many skin problems can be treated with the “ELECTROCRIOTHERAPY” method:
a) Scar (scars) – keloid
b) acne scars
c) Striae (skin cracks)
d) Skin spots
e) Skin wrinkles
f) Other dermatological problems (Actinic keratoma, hemangioma, nevus pigmentosum and other types of moles, warts, seborrheic keratosis, etc.)
