Utilizing groundbreaking cryomodulation technology, this FDA-approved treatment is revolutionizing the way we approach skincare. Here’s why you should consider Glacial Rx™.

Revolutionize Your Skincare

Glacial Rx™ is the first FDA-approved skin spot treatment harnessing the power of cryo modulation to remove unwanted age spots and benign lesions from the skin. Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva, a renowned board-certified plastic surgeon, offers Glacial Rx™ for patients in Newport Beach, CA, and Orange County. She is the first provider in Orange County to offer this exciting new technology, allowing people to experience a more radiant face with reduced inflammation. With everything being considered, Glacial Rx™ has proven to be an effective candidate among various skincare treatments.

What Is Glacial Rx™? 

Glacial Rx™ is a revolutionary FDA-approved cryo modulation treatment, designed to remove benign skin lesions such as age spots or sunspots. Glacial Rx™ utilizes a patented cooling technology that soothes the skin and treats age spots for a more uniform complexion. The treatment freezes melanin in the skin, significantly improving the appearance of dark and mottled areas. It is also ideal for treating rosacea, as it calms redness and flushing of the skin. Precision cooling offered by Glacial Rx™ ensures providers can tailor the treatment to suit individual needs.

Over time, the skin often develops darker spots of uneven pigmentation, or “hyperpigmentation,” typically caused by sun exposure, giving these spots one of their many nicknames: sunspots. They are also known as brown spots, liver spots, or age spots. Whatever you call them, they can make your skin look older and unhealthier than it really is.

How Glacial Rx™ Works 

Over time, the skin often develops darker spots of uneven pigmentation, or “hyperpigmentation.” These darker areas of the skin are producing too much melanin (skin pigment).

This is typically caused by sun exposure, giving these spots one of their many nicknames: sunspots. They are also known as brown spots, liver spots, or age spots. Whatever you call them, they can make your skin look older and unhealthier than it really is.

Glacial Rx™ treats the root cause of age spots through a process known as cryo modulation, which suppresses melanin production at the source. In addition to reducing the appearance of age spots, Glacial Rx™ also reduces inflammation and brightens the skin over the course of several weeks following treatment. It’s perfect for a range of skin conditions, including rosacea.

Glacial Rx Recovery Time

After undergoing the Glacial Rx™️ procedure, patients can expect minimal downtime and a quick recovery time. Thanks to advancements in medical technology, this innovative treatment helps improve skin health and create brighter, more vibrant skin. With the use of efficient needles and targeted therapy planning management, patients can experience optimal results without discomfort. This procedure offers a convenient solution for those looking to address age spots and achieve a more youthful complexion, making it a popular choice in the healthcare industry for skin rejuvenation.

Frequently Asked Questions About Glacial Rx™

How can I prevent age/sun spots and lentigines?

Age spots, also known as lentigines, aren’t always avoidable, but you can take steps to help prevent them or slow the process of getting sun spots by limiting sun exposure, protecting your neck area, and using sunscreen. UV rays from the sun prompt the skin to produce more melanin, which leads to hyperpigmentation and sun damage. In fact, maintaining a consistent skincare routine that includes sun protection agents can help preserve an even skin tone.

What are age spots?

Age spots are flat spots on the skin that can be tan, brown, or black in color. Age spots are also known as sun spots or liver spots. They are benign lesions and not dangerous, but they can be bothersome to many patients. These spots can be treated effectively in a session with Dr. Ho Taghva and her team using cream-based treatments along with Glacial Rx™.

How can I prevent age/sun spots?

Age spots aren’t always avoidable, but you can take steps to help prevent them or slow the process of getting sun spots by limiting sun exposure and using sunscreen. UV rays from the sun prompt the skin to produce more melanin, which leads to hyperpigmentation.

What is the most effective treatment for age spots?

Age spots can be difficult to treat since melanin is hidden in the base layer of the skin. While topical creams are often used to treat age spots, they can be harsh and cause redness or further inflammation of the skin. This is because they are trying to access the base of the epidermis which they have limited access to. That’s where Dr. Ho Taghva’s work with Glacial Rx™ can help.

Laser treatments are sometimes used to treat age spots as well, but they can be expensive and painful. Lasers also require more downtime for healing to occur. The skin may be red and inflamed for days or weeks after some laser treatments, with potential side effects such as micro crusting.

How long after Glacial Rx™ treatment before I see results and can enjoy events confidently?

You can expect your age spots to fade in about one month following treatment. It generally takes several weeks for the new skin cells to replace old epidermal cells. The doctor may recommend more than one treatment, especially if the spots are darker or if you are looking to treat a larger area. 

What is cryo modulation?

Cryo Modulation is a revolutionary technology that uses the power of cold to suppress melanin production, which can cause unwanted splotches on the skin. The cooling process also delivers benefits such as a reduction in redness and inflammation, as well as promotion of antioxidants and cell turnover. Cryomodulation accelerates exfoliation and brightens the skin, all while minimizing discomfort.

Yes. Glacial Rx™ is a safe and FDA-approved procedure that has been studied in over 600 individuals during clinical studies. While there are no serious risks, side effects may include redness, transient darkening, and crusting. If they occur, these side effects resolve over time on their own, reducing the risk of scarring.

Will my age spots come back?

Because Glacial Rx™ slows melanin production, age spots are slow to return. While sun exposure can cause melanin production to recur, there are steps you can take to slow this process.

Consistently using sunscreen, minimizing exposure to the sun, wearing protective clothing (including hats and sunglasses), and maintaining an ongoing skin care routine can help results last a long time. Patients can safely be treated with Glacial Rx™ an unlimited number of times.

How long after Glacial Rx™ treatment will I see results?

You can expect your age spots to fade in about one month following treatment, which involves the formation of crusts that eventually fall off. It generally takes several weeks for the new skin cells to replace old epidermal cells. The doctor may recommend more than one treatment, especially if the spots are darker or if you are looking to treat a larger area. Maintenance treatments can also be beneficial for long-lasting results.

Where can Glacial Rx™ be used to treat my spots?

Glacial Rx™ can be used anywhere on the body to treat dark spots on the skin, even after procedures like breast augmentation.

Does Glacial Rx™ treat all types of skin and all skin colors?

Glacial Rx™ has the best results on Fitzpatrick Skin Types 1-3.
