What Is Zimmer?
Zimmer Cryo 6 is a world-class cold air device that helps minimize pain by providing topical anesthetic relief. Dr. Weishar offers this option to patients who have concerns about feeling pain during their procedures. Unlike other cooling methods such as ice packs, Zimmer Cryo 6 targets the epidermis before, during, and after the procedure. By doing so, the device reduces your pain sensitivity, thus increasing your tolerance to treatment.
How Does Zimmer Work?
The Zimmer cooling device works similarly to a refrigerator compressor to deliver a steady stream of cold air to the treatment area. This form of cold therapy reduces blood flow to the area which, in turn, minimizes inflammation, swelling, and pain.
What makes Zimmer stand out from other cold therapy treatments is that it can be used during a procedure. Thanks to its thin tube and cooling adapter, Dr. Weishar can aim the stream of cold air exactly where the laser beam application is hitting the skin. The device does not interfere with the beam.
