Has anyone tried this for stubborn hyperpigmentation? My mom had it done on a brown spot and it worked pretty quickly and effectively (just caused the spot to scab over and peel off). I have never heard of it before so if anyone has info that would be cool.

What type of 'brown spot' did she have? Cryotherapy is usually reserved for potentially pre-cancerous lesions, skin growths (like warts), etc. The risk of scarring is very high as the cold destroys intact skin as well as the targeted area. It is NOT a scar or red mark treating method.

I just find it insanely amazing that there is absolutely nothing you can do that will effectively help this... It's so frustrating rarely having acne but when I do it consistently leaves a mark on my face that stays prominently red for over 8 months.

There just has to be something to do...
