Using patented cryogenic air to treat growth inhibiting skin conditions without pain and side effects!
ONLifreez® uses cryogenic temperatures ejected under high pressure on to the skin. The gas is very cold which helps to freeze and destroy any benign lesions.
During the application, the tip of the device reaches -89°C. The reason for this is to create a thermal shock at the region where the gas is pointed by causing a rapid drop in temperatures. The temperature drop has the effect of crystallising the fluid contents of the targeted cells, turning them into ice shards, resulting in the destruction of skin lesions as the membrane surrounding the treated cells is ruptured and destroyed.
During treatment, you may see a frost or ice-field on top of the lesion. This shouldn’t cause any worry as the frost usually goes away within a few seconds. A common technique called freeze-thaw-freeze can sometimes be used to freeze, then defrost a frozen lesion, and then freeze it again. Here, the frozen lesion is allowed to rest for 30 seconds and then a second treatment applied whereby the tissue will freeze faster second time around and destruction of the lesion is more guaranteed.
The procedure has minimal pain as we use both topical anaesthesia as well as local anaesthetic to minimise any discomfort. Most patients breeze through the treatment with little concern.
During the treatment, which usually lasts around 20 minutes, a numbing cream is applied around the eye area, followed by anaesthetic jabs. A hand-held device with a needle then delivers heat and RF pierces the skin at controlled depths. This melts the fat and stimulates collagen production
We would recommend you to come for sessions once a month. However, the interval may differ if your skin has a longer recovery period.

Immediately after the treatment, the area will appear slightly swollen and red prick marks will be visible on the skin. Noticeable swelling and redness subsides 1 to 3 days later, though it can take up to a week for all swelling to fully resolve. Occasionally, bruising may develop; this takes between 5 to 14 days to heal. We typically tell patients to plan for 3 to 5 days of downtime due to associated swelling and occasional bruising.
This is totally dependant on your skin’s recovery period. In general, it takes up to 4-6weeks to see the fully realised results. However, some of our past clients have claimed to witness an improvement in just 5 short days!
