Cryoshape 4 Keloid
A revolutionary breakthrough in the treatment of Hypertrophic Scars and KeloidsClinically proven, FDA cleared.
A Proven procedure that dramatically reduces scars and keloids.
The innovative CryoShape freezes scars from the inside out, providing penetration to deep tissues typically out of reach of other methods. The results speak for themselves – dramatic and long-term relief from annoying, itchy and painful scars and keloids.
CryoShape is more effectiv when compared with traditional forms of treatment such as steroid injections, radiation therapy, laser techniques, excisional surgery, topical and pressure therapy.
The CryoShape is a patented intralesional cryoprobe for treating hypertrophic scars and keloids. The CryoShape has FDA and CE approvals. The novelty of the CryoShape is in its specially elongated design. Based on a concentric double-lumen unit with excellent thermal conductivity, the cryogenic fluid – liquid nitrogen – passes the CryoShape twice, for improved operation and efficacy. The whole CryoShape apparatus is designed for easy penetration into the rubbery and dense scars tissue. The CryoShape cryoprobe was developed by Prof. Yaron Har-Shai, the Director of The Unit of Plastic Surgery, Carmel Medical Center, and The Department of Plastic Surgery, Linn Medial Center and also President of the Israel Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Hypertrophic scars and keloids are elevated progressive scars. These are characterized by being thick and ropey, red, firm and elevated, painful and itchy. There is no efficient and non-recurrent solution – surgical or nonsurgical – to remove the lesions, especially large scars.
Market trends show that increasing numbers of people are refusing to accept such scars, caused by trauma, burns, injury, piercing, surgery or skin diseases.
Extensive clinical human studies were performed on over 120 patients, who suffered from hypertrophic scars and keloids. The CryoShape was proved to be safe and effective for the treatment of hypertrophic scars and keloids.
The clinical studies clearly demonstrated the excellent efficacy of the CryoShape due to the increased freezing area of deep scar material, compared to that obtained with commercially available scar management solutions. An average of more than 51% of scar volume reduction was achieved following a single treatment session.
Furthermore, the cryo-treatment preserved the original skin color with no hypo-pigmentation.
Most frequently asked questions
How does CryoShape work? In a first-of-its kind procedure, the CryoShape probe uses liquid nitrogen to freeze and destroy unwanted deep scar tissue from the inside out. This greatly minimizes any chance of scar recurrence.
How is CryoShape different from other treatments? Traditional methods have never been able to attack the deep tissue of a keloid or hypertrophic scar. CryoShape reaches and freezes this tissue, thereby destroying it permanently.
How long does the average treatment take? The timing of procedures varies, but typically requires only a singular session, lasting anywhere from 15-45 minutes. Relief from annoying itching, pain and tenderness is almost immediate.
How much pain can I expect from the treatment?CryoShape is nearly pain-free. The local area is easily anesthetized, allowing the physician to perform the brief procedure without any discomfort to the patient. No sutures are involved.
How long has CryoShape been around? CryoShape was developed and refined by Israeli doctors and has achieved unparalleled success for thousands of patients around the globe. CryoShape LTD is now making its available in North America.
