Dry Ice

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone has tried using dry ice on their scars. I was talking with my friend at work about my scars and having the fraxel treatment. She said her ex-husband and also one of her friends had dry ice applied to their scars and they are gone. Granted this was 20 years or better, but just curious why my derm has not gave me the option. Any of you know about this?

There may be a hypopigmentation risk with this method. I have had scars treated with cryotherapy (freezing with liquid nitrogen) and each time it caused hypopigmentation that can take a long time to heal.
