The natural aging process can take a significant toll on your skin. As you grow older, your body stops producing collagen and elastin, resulting in wrinkles and fine lines. When combined with sun exposure and habits like smoking, it’s normal to develop sun spots, age spots, and other imperfections. At Fernando Bueso, M.D., P.A. and Francisco J. Bueso, M.D., in Houston, Texas, the highly experienced team offers anti-aging treatments, including cryotherapy, to help patients achieve beautiful, healthy skin.

Anti-aging is a branch of medicine focused on diagnosing, treating, and preventing age-related health problems. You can’t stop the natural aging process entirely, but you can minimize its effects on your physical appearance and health.
Fernando Bueso, M.D., P.A. and Francisco J. Bueso, M.D. use anti-aging treatments to help patients look and feel their best. Using advanced methodologies like cryotherapy, they’re able to safely and effectively treat common skin problems like sun spots, age spots, and wrinkles.
Skin is the body’s largest organ. It’s incredibly tough, but years of exposure to sunlight and environmental toxins, or bad habits like smoking take a significant toll on its appearance and vitality. After the age of 30, it’s normal to notice an increase in wrinkles and fine lines. You might also notice that your skin is dry, thinner, and less smooth.
Many over-the-counter products claim to eliminate wrinkles and other age-related skin problems, but the results are hit or miss. If you truly want to improve your skin’s health, it’s important to work with a qualified medical doctor.
Cryotherapy is an anti-aging treatment that exposes your body to freezing or near-freezing temperatures. During this quick, outpatient procedure, you sit in a special cryotherapy chamber for three to five minutes. The cold air produced by liquid nitrogen causes your blood vessels to contract and your pores to tighten.
After your skin returns to its normal temperature, your blood vessels quickly dilate. This process causes an increase of blood flow and oxygen to your skin, making it appear glowing and more vibrant. Cryotherapy can also make your skin appear less swollen and more taught.
In addition to improving the appearance of age spots, wrinkles, and sunspots, cryotherapy can address atopic dermatitis. One clinical study found that cryotherapy minimizes the symptoms of atopic dermatitis and reduced breakouts.
Following your cryotherapy appointment, you can return to normal activities like work right away. Your face might feel numb or tingly, but these sensations should subside within an hour or two.
To maintain the results of your anti-aging treatment, it’s important to schedule follow-up appointments every three to five weeks. The more frequently you get cryotherapy, the longer lasting your results.
