Age spots and other dark spots are among the most difficult signs of aging to treat. Even lasers may not provide good results on these concerns. Glacial® Rx uses freezing to rejuvenate the skin and target signs of aging. This customizable treatment can address age spots almost anywhere on the face or body. 

What is Glacial® Rx?

Glacial® Rx treats age spots (seborrheic keratoses) and other skin concerns. Age spots result from a collection of excess skin cells and melanin production. Along with age spots and other dark spots, Glacial® Rx provides skin rejuvenation and lightens hyperpigmentation. The cooling treatment also decreases skin inflammation for smoother, calmer skin.

How Does Glacial® Rx Work?

Glacial® Rx uses freezing technology instead of heat like most treatment methods. It is the only FDA-cleared CryoAesthetic™ treatment. The temperature is highly customizable, allowing Glacial® Rx to treat a range of skin concerns. Glacial® Rx can be used as an all-over facial treatment or to target dark spots on the face or body. Most people report that getting a Glacial® Rx treatment feels painless and cool. 

How Much Does Glacial® Rx Cost?

Each Glacial® Rx treatment is customized to meet your needs. Factors that affect the cost of a Glacial® Rx session include:

  • Your location
  • Your provider’s skill and experience
  • The type of Glacial® Rx treatment
  • The size of the treatment area
  • Other treatments provided at the same time

The average Glacial® Rx treatment cost ranges from $500 to $1,500. We recommend a consultation to discuss your treatment options and estimated expenses. 

What Can Glacial® Rx Treat?

Glacial® Rx excels as a treatment for a range of pigmentation issues. It makes a fast, comfortable option for treating:

  • Age spots
  • Dark spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Dullness
  • Sun damage
  • Other signs of aging

Larger age spots are often treated with targeted freezing. Glacial® Rx can also treat the entire face to improve pigmentation and sun damage for brighter, more even-toned skin.

How Many Glacial® Rx Treatments Will I Need?

Since Glacial® Rx can be used in several ways, each person’s treatment will differ. Many people see their desired results with one treatment. Some people with more intense hyperpigmentation or other signs of aging may choose to have a series of treatments. You will see your results as cells without excess melanin rise to the surface over about one month. Your results can be long-lasting, especially if you avoid sun exposure and protect your skin. 

Is There Any Downtime With Glacial® Rx

Glacial® Rx is a non-invasive, heat-free treatment with no skin damage. It does not require downtime, letting you return to your usual activities. The treatment area may look red for a day or two, and your pigmented spots may darken before they start to fade.
