Cons

Some users have experienced skin redness and burns when applying these products before putting on tight clothing (leggings, shoes, etc) or before bed. Apparently, the burn that can occur is not noticed because it already feels like an icy-hot sensation, so that you don't realize your skin may be burned.

Recommendations

We recommend that you suggest to your patients to buy Cryoderm or Cryoderm heat for use at home to help them relieve pain and discomfort between visits to your practice. Once again, the benefits of doing this range from one type of care to another.
