Glacial Rx is a skincare treatment that uses an advanced technology called Cryomodulation. This state-of-the-art technology harnesses cooling power to suppress the production of new melanin, which eliminates the cause of unwanted dark spots. Glacial Rx provides the skin with an icy sensation that refreshes the skin, reduces redness and inflammation, accelerates exfoliation, and brightens your skin tone. This process takes less than an hour to perform. If you would like to see how Glacial Rx can even your skin tone and rejuvenate your complexion, schedule a personal consultation at The Optimization Centre’s Boca Raton offices. To speak with our friendly front desk directly, please call (561) 495-2700.

About Glacial Rx

Glacial rx Boca Raton

As we age, most of us develop age spots, also known as sunspots or liver spots. These discolored lesions can be completely benign, yet they can disrupt the smooth tone of the skin, leading to a loss of self-confidence. They can sprout up on just about any part of our body but typically occur in the places with the most frequent exposure to sunlight. Previous methods of age-reversing skincare made removing sunspots difficult and painful. But with Glacial Rx, researchers have seen significant improvement in the appearance of sun-damaged skin.[1] Invented at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Cryomodulation, the science behind Glacial Rx, delivers precisely controlled and concentrated freezing energy to benign pigmented lesions without damage to the skin.[2] This technology halts the accelerated production of melanin. The cells that replace the dark spots over the course of normal skin turnover will be normally pigmented. As the spot’s outer darker layers of skin naturally make their way to the surface of the skin and are shed, healthy skin with an even skin tone becomes visible. Finally, patients can see real, long-lasting results. Developed by the same innovative company that invented CoolSculpting®, Glacial Rx is quickly becoming the “go-to” choice for erasing sunspots.

Benefits

We recommend Glacial Rx for patients who wish to rid their appearance of age spots with minimal discomfort. The cooling effects reduce any pain, swelling, and inflammation. Some additional benefits of Glacial Rx include:

  • Results after just a single treatment
  • Cool and refreshing sensation
  • No downtime required
  • Can be performed any time of the year
  • Does not require skin-irritating heat 

To find out more about the benefits of Glacial Rx or learn more about your eligibility for the treatment, we encourage you to make an appointment at the Optimization Centre.

Personal Consultation

As a board-certified plastic surgeon and plastic surgery instructor, Dr. Gregory Albert has expertly performed hundreds of successful procedures and taught many plastic surgeons to do the same. We will begin your consultation with a brief new patient intake interview and a physical examination. Then, we will ask to examine your sunspots. If we determine that these areas of skin are benign, we will then approve you for a Glacial Rx treatment. 

Procedure

We will begin your Glacial Rx procedure by reviewing your treatment plan and answering any questions you may have. Then, we will take the Glacial Rx applicator and target your various sunspots. When we place the cooling applicator on your skin, the energy from the device will focus only on the damaged cells inside your dermis. The freezing temperatures will effectively eliminate the cells from the inside, making way for new, healthier, unblemished cells to replace them. We will move the Glacial Rx device from sunspot to sunspot, achieving your desired appearance. Once we have completed your session, you will be able to leave our care and resume your daily routine!

Recovery & Results

Recovery from a Glacial Rx treatment is minimal compared to other anti-aging skincare treatments. However, you will need to be patient to see your full results, which can take about two or three months. As your skin produces new, regularly pigmented skin cells, the dark spots will gradually fade. While most patients see some improvement with just a single Glacial Rx session, we may recommend multiple sessions when treating larger areas of the skin. Our patients love the cooling feel of Glacial Rx, which has a refreshing effect on the skin. There is no need to worry about downtime, and patients are free to head back to work and enjoy other everyday activities right after treatment. Many patients notice some preliminary results almost immediately, though it may be up to three months before you see the full effects of your Glacial Rx treatment.

Corresponding & Complementary Procedures 

After experiencing the level of care and quality of results we are committed to, you might be inclined to make Dr. Albert’s office your first choice for all cosmetic procedures. Many patients who loved Glacial Rx also enjoy the rejuvenating benefits of CO2 Laser Resurfacing. The thermal energy from this laser treatment can rid your complexion of mild to moderate wrinkles, fine lines, and many other imperfections. To see if CO2 Laser Resurfacing is right for you, please schedule a consultation with our friendly staff today!
