First, the area to be treated will be cleansed. The Cryo Broadlight Genesis treatment is applied in a series of gentle but intense pulses of light over the treatment area. Without damaging the skin, the light penetrates through the skin and is absorbed by tiny capillaries or blood vessels visible through the skin, or it is absorbed by any pigmentation, sunspot or freckle or hair follicle present. The intense pulse of light is then transformed into heat energy, which causes damage to the blood vessel or pigmented area. Then, through its natural cleansing process, the body clears the debris away.
The Cryo Broadlight Genesis treatment will vary from 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area to be treated. Most treatments are painless, but specific treatments may feel a little like a rubber band snap to the skin. Topical or skin anaesthetic may be applied if required. The cooling head on the Cryo Broadlight makes treatments with this technology almost completely painless.
