What Is Glacial Rx™?
Glacial Rx™ is a revolutionary FDA-approved cryo modulation treatment, designed to remove benign skin lesions such as age spots or sunspots. Glacial Rx™ utilizes a patented cooling technology that soothes the skin and treats age spots for a more uniform complexion. The treatment freezes melanin in the skin, significantly improving the appearance of dark and mottled areas. It is also ideal for treating rosacea, as it calms redness and flushing of the skin. Precision cooling offered by Glacial Rx™ ensures providers can tailor the treatment to suit individual needs.
Over time, the skin often develops darker spots of uneven pigmentation, or “hyperpigmentation,” typically caused by sun exposure, giving these spots one of their many nicknames: sunspots. They are also known as brown spots, liver spots, or age spots. Whatever you call them, they can make your skin look older and unhealthier than it really is.
How Glacial Rx™ Works
Over time, the skin often develops darker spots of uneven pigmentation, or “hyperpigmentation.” These darker areas of the skin are producing too much melanin (skin pigment).
This is typically caused by sun exposure, giving these spots one of their many nicknames: sunspots. They are also known as brown spots, liver spots, or age spots. Whatever you call them, they can make your skin look older and unhealthier than it really is.
Glacial Rx™ treats the root cause of age spots through a process known as cryo modulation, which suppresses melanin production at the source. In addition to reducing the appearance of age spots, Glacial Rx™ also reduces inflammation and brightens the skin over the course of several weeks following treatment. It’s perfect for a range of skin conditions, including rosacea.
After the treatment, patients can return to their everyday activities as normal. Results can typically be seen within a month, and often sooner. If you’re curious about this treatment, consult Dr. Ho Taghva for more information.

Good Candidates for Glacial Rx™
Individuals looking to reduce the appearance of age spots on their skin may be good candidates for Glacial Rx™. Many patients seeking Glacial Rx™ have an otherwise clear complexion and are looking to restore an even tone to reveal more youthful skin.

The Glacial Rx™ Procedure
Glacial Rx™ is a quick and relaxing procedure that takes about 45 minutes, promising visible results for issues like age spots and melasma.
Depending on the size of the treatment area, it may take a bit longer. During the age spot treatment, Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva moves the Glacial Rx™ device, akin to a rubber band, across the skin, pausing for 15-20 seconds in each area where there is unwanted pigment.
Following treatment, she applies a peel and performs an exfoliating massage which further reduces unwanted pigmentation.

Frequently Asked Questions About Glacial Rx™
Age spots, also known as lentigines, aren’t always avoidable, but you can take steps to help prevent them or slow the process of getting sun spots by limiting sun exposure, protecting your neck area, and using sunscreen. UV rays from the sun prompt the skin to produce more melanin, which leads to hyperpigmentation and sun damage. In fact, maintaining a consistent skincare routine that includes sun protection agents can help preserve an even skin tone.
Age spots are flat spots on the skin that can be tan, brown, or black in color. Age spots are also known as sun spots or liver spots. They are benign lesions and not dangerous, but they can be bothersome to many patients. These spots can be treated effectively in a session with Dr. Ho Taghva and her team using cream-based treatments along with Glacial Rx™.
Age spots aren’t always avoidable, but you can take steps to help prevent them or slow the process of getting sun spots by limiting sun exposure and using sunscreen. UV rays from the sun prompt the skin to produce more melanin, which leads to hyperpigmentation.
Age spots can be difficult to treat since melanin is hidden in the base layer of the skin. While topical creams are often used to treat age spots, they can be harsh and cause redness or further inflammation of the skin. This is because they are trying to access the base of the epidermis which they have limited access to. That’s where Dr. Ho Taghva’s work with Glacial Rx™ can help.
Laser treatments are sometimes used to treat age spots as well, but they can be expensive and painful. Lasers also require more downtime for healing to occur. The skin may be red and inflamed for days or weeks after some laser treatments, with potential side effects such as micro crusting.
You can expect your age spots to fade in about one month following treatment. It generally takes several weeks for the new skin cells to replace old epidermal cells. The doctor may recommend more than one treatment, especially if the spots are darker or if you are looking to treat a larger area.
Cryo Modulation is a revolutionary technology that uses the power of cold to suppress melanin production, which can cause unwanted splotches on the skin. The cooling process also delivers benefits such as a reduction in redness and inflammation, as well as promotion of antioxidants and cell turnover. Cryomodulation accelerates exfoliation and brightens the skin, all while minimizing discomfort.
Yes. Glacial Rx™ is a safe and FDA-approved procedure that has been studied in over 600 individuals during clinical studies. While there are no serious risks, side effects may include redness, transient darkening, and crusting. If they occur, these side effects resolve over time on their own, reducing the risk of scarring.
Because Glacial Rx™ slows melanin production, age spots are slow to return. While sun exposure can cause melanin production to recur, there are steps you can take to slow this process.
Consistently using sunscreen, minimizing exposure to the sun, wearing protective clothing (including hats and sunglasses), and maintaining an ongoing skin care routine can help results last a long time. Patients can safely be treated with Glacial Rx™ an unlimited number of times.
