Glacial Rx™ in San Jose with Aesthetx
Harmless age spots can be irritating and make us feel older than our years, but age spots are not actually caused by aging. Rather, the darker areas of increased pigmentation on our skin are caused by prolonged exposure to the sun. Age spots, or sunspots, often occur in the regions that receive the most exposure to the sun: the face and neck, shoulders and upper back, backs of hands, and tops of feet. However, no matter their location, age spots can now be treated with new, non-invasive Glacial Rx™.
Glacial Rx™ is a new FDA-cleared procedure for treating age spots that uses Cryomodulation™ to repress the skin’s natural production of melanin—the pigment responsible for hair, skin, and eye color. At Aesthetx, we pride ourselves on offering the most advanced and proven methods of skin rejuvenation in San Jose, now including Glacial Rx™.
Refreshing your youthful appearance with innovative new Glacial Rx™ in San Jose, CA, is easier than ever. Contact Aesthetx at (408) 559-7177 or complete our online form to schedule your consultation today!
What is Glacial Rx™?
Glacial Rx™ is a skin rejuvenation procedure that removes the benign lesions of the skin. These lesions are more commonly referred to as age spots, sunspots, or liver spots. Glacial Rx™ uses Cryomodulation™, a patented cooling process, to selectively suppress skin’s natural melanin production and regulates pigment accumulation.
Glacial Rx’s™ Cryomodulation™ process provides a refreshing and comfortable sensory experience while revealing smoother, more radiant skin by decreasing redness, diminishing impurities, and promoting skin’s healthier microbiome.

For optimal results, you may need multiple treatments if the spots are especially dark or if the treatment area is large.

Therefore, reducing sun exposure and following an effective skin care regimen is key to prolonging your Glacial Rx™ results. However, Glacial Rx™ treatments may be performed multiple times should more sunspots develop.
