Glacial RX

Remove age spots and other kinds of excess pigment for a more even skin tone.

What is Glacial Rx?

Glacial Rx is an FDA-cleared, in-office treatment that uses cooling technology called cryomodulation to remove age spots and other kinds of excess pigment. 

Developed by the creators of CoolSculpting, Glacial Rx targets specific spots of excess pigment, lightening them and suppressing the production of new pigment for a more even skin tone.

While heat-generating laser treatments feel like a snapping rubber band (even with numbing cream), Glacial Rx reportedly feels comfortable, relaxing, and refreshing. 

The cooling process also reduces redness and inflammation and speeds up exfoliation to reveal more radiant skin. You won’t need anesthesia, and the treatment has little to no downtime.

Benefits of Glacial RX

  • Glacial Rx is FDA-cleared to remove benign lesions like age spots (also known as sunspots, liver spots, or solar lentigines) anywhere on the body.
  • Most people see results in less than a month, sometimes even within days. In clinical trials, 93% of treated age spots lightened within two months. 
  • The treatment is comfortable and requires no anesthesia. Its cooling feature temporarily reduces pain, swelling, and inflammation.
  • There’s no minimal to no downtime afterward. In clinical trials of more than 600 participants, minor side effects—redness and microcrusting—resolved on their own in a few days. 

What happens during a Glacial RX Treatment?

First, you’ll lie down on a table and relax. Your provider won’t need to apply a topical anesthetic or numbing agent because the treatment’s cooling technology will help keep you comfortable

Using the Glacial Rx handpiece, your provider will gently apply a cold plate to each sunspot for 15 to 20 seconds. The cooling will reduce redness and puffiness as the device moves across your skin. 

The whole process will take about 45 minutes, depending on how many age spots are being treated.

During the treatment, your skin will be more receptive to topical skin care. Your provider will apply serums with brightening agents and antioxidants, to help protect your skin and accelerate cell turnover. They may also recommend topical products for you to use at home, to maximize and prolong your results.

In clinical trials, patients were able to return to normal activities immediately after treatment.

When will I the results with Glacial RX?

Age spots and splotches of excess pigment gradually start to lighten within a few days, as cells turn over.

Within the first few weeks after your treatment, you may have some social downtime if you have multiple spots treated in a conspicuous area like the face, with more microcrusting than usual. If that happens, let the crusts flake off naturally (resist the urge to pick, which could cause scarring).

You should see optimal results within one to two months.

Using sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and wearing wide-brimmed hats when you’re outside will help protect your skin from sun damage so that you’ll need fewer maintenance treatments.

Is Glacial RX safe?

While it’s a relatively new treatment, Glacial Rx has been shown to be safe. In clinical studies involving more than 600 participants, only minor side effects were reported. The most common were redness, temporary darkening of the treatment area, and “microcrusting,” all of which resolved on their own within a few days.

What Our Patients Say

Alicia provides a calming atmosphere for facial treatments. She is delicate and kind. She is educational in her treatments by explaining her process as well as information regarding the product she is using. She provides the best facial i have had. I will return and advise others to do the same.

Erin P.

I had a hydra facial with Alicia. She explained everything she was doing and the product being used. She even made recommendations for my aging skin. I left with my skin feeling soft and fresh. The facility was clean and had a comfortable atmosphere. Extra care was taken to make my experience pleasant and rewarding.

T. Carby

I received the most amazing facial from Alicia. She had prepared me for a potentially less relaxing facial than a traditional facial, as I had booked a hydrafacial. I don’t know what she was talking about. Alicia explained in interesting and terrific detail what was happening but she didn’t over-speak. It was more relaxing than i expected and the facial/neck/shoulder/arm massage was decadent. I felt like i learned so much while also getting a special dose of CHILL. I’ll absolutely be back and feel inspired to approach skin care from a more educated and informed perspective. I won’t waste my time anywhere else.

Chelsea C.
Alicia is incredible! Such a great facial! She is so knowledgeable and informative but also incredibly talented at giving you a relaxing experience. They use the best products also (IMO) (eminence and zo skincare) I look forward to my next facial with her!

Neighborhood Jewel! Dr. Gram and the team are very knowledgeable and helpful. The day spa is second to none with the Hydra-facial. It was the most comfortable and effective facial I have ever had.
