Technology Spotlight: How the Zimmer Cryo Chiller Eases Discomfort

Laser treatments can address all kinds of skin issues, from acne to sun damage. But most people put off scheduling a session because they’re afraid of the pain. If this is true in your case, you’ll be pleased to learn we use the Zimmer Cryo Chiller to alleviate discomfort further and deliver painless laser procedures.

At Ethos MedSpa, the skin cooling device we use has a loyal following among health and beauty professionals wanting to put their clients at ease. And we’ve had impressive results in our own laser treatments, with our clients enjoying great comfort throughout the process. 

We’re focused on investing in the latest technologies that help turn back the clock and restore your natural beauty. Our Zimmer Cryo Chiller is one of the best options available to provide anesthetic relief in cosmetic procedures. 

What Is the Zimmer Cryo Chiller?

The Zimmer Cryo Chiller is a skin cooling device used in pain alleviation and skin treatment. The device is considered the gold standard in the industry for a good reason. It has also proven to be exceptionally useful in rejuvenating the skin. 

Many clients have felt at ease during laser treatments because of the added comfort provided by the Zimmer device. We have clients coming with different requests, some struggling with facial wrinkles and others exploring our laser hair removal. In each case, we offer the option of using the Zimmer chiller to cool the skin for a numbing effect. 

How Does This Cooling Device Work?

Devices such as the Zimmer Cryo Chiller are equipped with fans that allow cold air to flow from the machine, resulting in low temperatures that are suitable for cold therapy. It sends the cold deep into the treatment area, reducing any discomfort you might have felt otherwise. Unlike most other cryo chillers, the Zimmer skin cooling device is the only tool that works hand in hand with the laser during a dermatological procedure. It is also the easiest to use among other products on the market, allowing the medical esthetician to focus on the treatment area with more outstanding results.

What Treatments Is It Used For?

At Ethos MedSpa, we apply the Zimmer Cryo Chiller to provide relief during laser procedures. While laser treatment is amazingly fast and effective, it can be slightly uncomfortable, even when the Venus Versa™ system is used. This causes many to avoid the process. Cryo cooling is our way of ensuring that we make it painless and avoid thermal injuries to the skin during each session. 

The device works well with the following procedures:

IPL Photo Rejuvenation

With IPL photo rejuvenation, intense pulsed light is used to eliminate the signs of aging. Skin imperfections such as sun damage, fine lines, and broken blood vessels are targeted with laser technology, which stimulates the body’s natural healing process. Although other steps are taken to prevent pain during treatment, we often use the Zimmer chiller as an additional means of alleviating discomfort.  

Laser Acne Reduction

Laser acne reduction is one of the most effective ways to treat acne, trumping thousands of medications and at-home skin products. During the procedure, intense pulsed light targets inflammation deep within the skin. Moreover, it destroys acne-causing bacteria, giving your complexion a smoother and more supple look. As the laser can cause an unpleasant sensation, we frequently use the Zimmer Cryo Chiller to cool and numb the skin.  

Laser Hair Removal

Getting rid of unwanted hair can be a frustrating task with all the waxing and shaving that’s needed. However, with laser hair removal, you can enjoy a more permanent solution. By undergoing this procedure, you can achieve the smooth look you’ve always craved—no razor required. And as we typically use the Zimmer skin cooling device during procedures, you can look forward to a cool, painless sensation while the laser targets the pigment in your hair follicles.  

What Advantages Does It Offer?

Laser procedures do come with the risk of experiencing some minor discomfort. However, the advantage of the Zimmer Cryo Chiller is that it dulls pain and reduces possible skin damage from heat. This skin cooling device has proven more effective than other topical solutions such as numbing creams and ice packs. 

The Zimmer Cryo Chiller applies one of the simplest and time-tested solutions for managing pain and delivers it to a service that augments your beauty and enhances your looks. Instead of dreading how you will endure the pain, you’ll be able to focus on caring for your revitalized appearance.

Who Can Use It?
