If you suffer from persistent age spots, sun spots or skin tags — especially those that remain after other treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion or laser treatments — then a SkinCeuticals’ CryoCorrect treatment may provide you with the clear, blemish-free skin you have been wanting.

A CryoCorrect treatment uses carbon dioxide (CO2) as a cryogenic agent to gently freeze problem spots and tags, destroying the integrity of the targeted tissue. After a few days and over the next few weeks, your body will gradually and naturally clear the impaired tissue away, leaving no remaining traces of the spot or tag.

Your board certified facial plastic surgeon performs the procedure on an out-patient basis and the entire treatment can take just a few minutes in many cases. CryoCorrect provides a permanent and fast solution to trouble spots that can help complement other cosmetic procedures and complete your refreshed and healthy look.

You can also treat problems wherever they occur, whether you have spots or tags on your hands, face, arms or other areas of your body. The CryoCorrect treatment is safe for virtually all areas of the body.

Your CryoCorrect Procedure

During your CryoCorrect procedure, you will receive a steady flow of carbon dioxide (CO2) delivered directly to your areas of concern — age spots, sun spots or skin tags — which will slowly begin to freeze the affected skin.

The carbon dioxide will freeze the skin much more gently than other cryogenic agents commonly used in skincare, such as liquid nitrogen. As a result, there is a less likelihood that the treatment will adversely affect the surrounding skin. The CryoCorrect applicator allows for accurate, targeted delivery of CO2, ensuring safety and effectiveness.

The freezing process takes only about five to eight seconds per area of concern, and you may only need one treatment to remove all your symptoms in that area. Most patients do not report significant, if any, discomfort during their CryoCorrect procedure.

Recovering from Your CryoCorrect Procedure

After your CryoCorrect treatment, you will notice that skin in the procedure area will appear darker than the surrounding skin. A scab will form over the darker area after a few days and may remain anywhere between two and three weeks before naturally falling away. New, unblemished skin should be visible in the treated area upon completion of this healing cycle.

The healing process will vary between patients and also depends on the size of the treatment area, but you can expect the healing process to range between 4 and 12 weeks with results typically visible between two and three weeks. Most clients do not report experiencing much discomfort after the procedure.

After your procedure, you can immediately resume your regular schedule. You should treat the procedure area with care afterward, but you will have no other special care instructions to follow.

Applying Phloretin CF® or Sheer Physical UV Defense SPF 50 during recovery has been clinically shown to provide smoother feeling skin after receiving a CryoCorrect treatment.

The SkinCeuticals’ CryoCorrect treatment has no known side effects, so you can have our procedure and enjoy your results with confidence.

Practice Policy Update from Cheng Plastic Surgery Regarding COVID-19 View Update Virtual Consultation

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Monday, January 4, 2021:

We are open!

We cannot wait to see all of our amazing patients in our office! We are currently working with a more limited schedule than before, so please be patient as we navigate through this, together.

There are a few key changes we’ve made to our appointment protocol to ensure we are maintaining social distancing and following strict COVID-19 health and safety protocols - for you AND for us.

  1. Call our office from your car once you’ve arrived for your appointment. A staff member will come out to greet you, take your temperature and conduct a short COVID-19 health screening to make sure you are in good health prior to entering the building. Our doors will remain locked during normal business hours to ensure only those who have been screened can enter.
  2. Please arrive at your appointment wearing a mask or protective face covering. We will not be able to bring you inside the office without one.
  3. We will not have more than one patient in the lobby at a time.
  4. You will be greeted by Dr. Elbert or Dr. Jacqueline wearing their Personal Protective Equipment deemed necessary by your specific treatment. (N95 mask, gloves, face shield or protective eyewear, etc.) We ask that you leave your mask on during the procedure, and only take it off if necessary to complete the treatment.
  5. All necessary transactions will be done in the room your treatment is being performed. This will avoid unnecessary back ups in the lobby.
  6. You will then be walked out through the back door of the office. This is the best way to keep all staff and patients socially distanced while maintaining one steady flow of traffic throughout the building.

And of course, all rooms will be heavily disinfected immediately after you leave just as we have always done prior to the pandemic. Each room is equipped with an air filter as an added safety measure. We will place a major focus on high-contact areas such as chairs, doorknobs, counter tops, mirrors and more.

We are still continuing to conduct Virtual Consultations if you prefer a quicker and no-contact experience.

Virtual Consultation

For the safety of our patients and staff, we ask that you reschedule your appointment and do not enter our office with any of the following conditions:

  1. You have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
  2. You have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
  3. You traveled more than 150 miles or have been in close contact with someone who has traveled in the last 10 days.
  4. You are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
    • fever or chills
    • cough
    • shortness of breath
    • fatigue
    • muscle or body aches
    • headaches
    • sore throat
    • loss of taste or smell
    • nausea, diarrhea, or vomiting

Concerned about getting the Moderna vaccine after having recently received filler treatment? In some studies, it has been observed that a small percentage of the vaccinated groups experienced localized inflammation (swelling) after receiving the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine. In said cases, all studied reactions were temporary immune responses. It has been suggested that patients refrain from getting filler two weeks before and after the vaccine. If you have any questions, please feel free to call our office!

Thank you for your continued support and we can't wait to see you again!

Kindest Regards,,

Dr. Elbert, Dr. Jacqueline and staff at Cheng Plastic Surgery
