Eczema is a chronic skin condition that affects millions of people worldwide. If you have eczema, your skin may become inflamed, itchy, and red, often resulting in dryness and flakiness. These symptoms can range from mild irritation to severe discomfort, causing you to scratch your skin, which can worsen the condition. Eczema can appear on various parts of your body, and its exact cause remains unclear. We identify your symptoms, determine the cause, and curate personalized cryotherapy treatments for eczema.

Who Is Affected:

Eczema does not discriminate; it affects people of all ages and backgrounds, including infants, children, and adults, both male and female. Some individuals are genetically predisposed to eczema; factors like allergens and irritants can trigger or exacerbate the symptoms. Those with a personal or family history of asthma, hay fever, or other allergies are at a higher risk. Experience relief with our eczema treatment in Palo Alto.

Triggers for Eczema:

  • Allergens like pollen, pet dander, dust mites, and mold
  • Irritants like harsh soaps, detergents, fragrances, and certain fabrics
  • Extreme temperatures, humidity levels, and dry air
  • Emotional stress and anxiety
  • Specific food allergies
  • Hormonal fluctuations, especially in women
  • Bacterial or viral infections
  • Frequent scratching and itching

Our medical providers utilize various diagnostic tools and symptom assessments to identify the severity of eczema and its underlying triggers. After identifying the trigger, we use cryotherapy options like Glacial Rx or liquid nitrogen to target inflammation and relieve eczema.

Cryotherapy for Eczema Management

Cryotherapy is a medical treatment that involves the controlled application of extreme cold to a specific area of the body. It operates on the principle of vasoconstriction, which is the narrowing of blood vessels when exposed to cold temperatures. This reduces blood flow to the treated area, which can help alleviate inflammation, itching, and pain associated with conditions like eczema.  Additionally, cryotherapy can numb nerve endings, providing relief from discomfort.

Glacial Rx

Glacial Rx utilizes cold therapy to address various skin issues, including redness, inflammation, and eczema. This procedure involves applying a specialized cold gel to the skin’s surface, followed by controlled cooling with a cryo-device. Glacial Rx helps stimulate collagen production, reduce the appearance of skin imperfections, and promote a healthier complexion. It’s a non-invasive and safe approach to achieving smoother, more radiant skin.

Liquid Nitrogen

Liquid nitrogen is a colorless, cold cryogenic liquid with a boiling point of -196 degrees Celsius (-321 degrees Fahrenheit), often used in medical and dermatological procedures. When applied to the skin, liquid nitrogen rapidly freezes and destroys damaged tissues and constricts blood vessels, reducing blood flow. This reduces inflammation and activates the body’s natural healing processes, ultimately leading to improved complexion and reduced eczema symptoms.

Benefits of Cryotherapy:

  • Reduces inflammation
  • Alleviates itching
  • Reduces pain and discomfort
  • Promotes collagen production
  • Targets skin imperfections
  • Non-invasive treatment
  • Minimal side effects and downtime
