Cryoshape™ is a way of treating scars that are problematic, usually described as hypertropic or keloid. Both are often itchy, red and raised and typically for keloids, they do not improve and often grow continuously.

 

Cryoshape™ is often reserved for scars that have only poorly responded to standard scar treatments such as pressure, topical silicone and massage.

 

How does it work? Freezing damages the cells within the scar from the inside. It causes the hard connective tissue of the scar – collagen protein – to shrink and remodel with time. The area gradually heals from the edges to the centre.
