“We love our Zimmer chiller,” said Carmen Primrose, of Franklin Skin & Laser. Carmen is Lead Aesthetician and a laser specialist at the practice of Dr. Steven Bengelsdorf. She discussed several of the applications for which the office uses their Zimmer Cryotherapy device.

Standing beside the practice’s Cryo 6 cold therapy device with optional articulating arm and focusing tip, Carmen raved, “This thing does wonders for patient comfort, and has even eliminated the need for topical numbing cream in some cases.”

According to Carmen, Dr. Bengelsdorf and staff use their cryo device with “all kinds of procedures”. One of the treatments aided by Z Cryo is Profound®, a treatment combining microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) therapy for skin tightening and cellulite reduction. Clear + Brilliant® is another of the office’s treatments that is made safer and more comfortable because of Zimmer cryotherapy. Clear + Brilliant is a non-surgical laser treatment to improve the overall appearance of skin. Zimmer’s chilled air can be used before, during and after the energy is applied, without interfering with the laser beam. Franklin Skin & Laser also uses their chiller with tattoo removal and chemical peels for pain minimization and reduced risk of thermal injury.

Carmen summarized her appreciation for the Cryo 6, “In a nutshell, we just can’t get enough of our Zimmer chiller!”
