Cryomassage is used when a slight freeze over a large surface is desired. A cotton-tipped dipstick or a probe are applied on the lesion using the rotary or spiral pattern of the paintbrush method. The cotton-wool or probe stays in contact with the skin for 1-3 s until it blanches momentarily. Main indications are facial erytrosis, rosacea, alopecia areata and large solar lentigo.
