Cryotherapy is a safe and highly effective way of removing benign lesions on the skin. From removing skin tags, to treating verrucas and warts, cryotherapy harnesses the power of extremely cold temperatures to accurately and comfortably tackle stubborn conditions.
Our highly skilled practitioners are thoroughly trained to use the CryoPen – an innovative, state-of-the-art instrument to reduce and eliminate abnormal skin growths. The CryoPen produces a very fine freezing jet that our practitioners use to target problem areas, exposing them to sub-zero temperatures to remove or reduce the lesion. The precise instrument allows us to accurately affect the abnormality, without damaging the surrounding healthy tissue.
The procedure is completely pain-free, and so we can safely perform cryotherapy treatments on children with appropriate skin conditions. Specific requirements will be discussed at your initial consultation, but we usually find that the treatment is most effective when performed 2-3 times over one week. Sessions can last between a couple of minutes and an hour, depending on the scale of your condition. Once your cryotherapy plan has been completed, the affected area will blister and fall off 7-10 days after treatment. This process is completely safe, natural, and entirely painless.
Using a state-of-the-art CryoPen, we can painlessly remove a range of benign skin lesions.
No, the procedure is cold but comfortable.
Many treatments take only a matter of minutes, however depending on your particular requirements some can take up to an hour.
We generally recommend two-three treatments over a week for the best results.
The Cryopen produces a fine freezing jet with which we can accurately target a skin lesion, thus minimizing damage to surrounding tissues. It is particularly helpful when treating childhood verrucae due to its relative comfort.
A session of cryotherapy usually takes 5-15 minutes depending on the size of the lesion and the number of treatments required will have been discussed at the initial consultation.
After treatment, a sore blister will form, followed by a scab, which will fall off 7-10 days later.
The number of treatments to achieve the desired result will depend on the nature of the skin lesion. All of which will be discussed at the initial consultation.
Having had a full assessment by one of our Senior Practitioners, the appropriate course of treatment will be discussed in full with you and you will have the opportunity to ask any questions and address any areas of concern.
The Cryopen will then be applied to the treatable area for a few seconds to freeze and destroy the affected skin cells.
