What’s CRYOTHERAPY?

Skin tags are completely harmless and don’t usually cause any pain or discomfort, but if they make you feel self-conscious, they’re not so innocent after all. 

You may also have warts that get irritated or even bleed when rubbed by clothing.

Or they may feel painful. 

You may have thought about using over-the-counter medications to address the problem, but this can be painful, dangerous, and leave you with unattractive scars. 

In a skilled expert’s hands Cryotherapy procedure is:

Quick

Easy

Safe

Effective

Cryotherapy is a procedure in which warts and skin tags are frozen and removed using extreme cold, generally liquid nitrogen. The abnormal cells can’t survive this extreme cold and die after the treatment.

Cryotherapy also eliminates dark spots, sun-damaged skin such as actinic keratosis, solar lentigo, seborrheic keratosis, and viral skin infections.

The frozen skin blisters peel away, allowing new, healthy skin to develop in its place.

  • Cryotherapy is a minimally invasive therapy in which the damaged tissue is removed with little or no harm to the surrounding tissue.  
  • It is a non-invasive procedure without side effects.
  • For the majority of people, the recovery process is short and painless.
  • Unlike surgery, you won’t need to come back to get your sutures removed. 
  • Warts, skin tags, and other lesions come off within one to two weeks after treatment.

CRYOTHERAPY TREATMENT STEP BY STEP

A face to face consultation is the beginning of the journey. The information I collect there is intended to understand your conditions and goals better, allowing me to provide you with the most appropriate treatment plan.  

I also believe the combination of techniques gets the best results. So you will come out with your own and unique treatment plan.

In terms of Cryotherapy treatment:

1.

Cleaning and drying the treatment area is the initial step.

2.

I use a spraying device to deliver a liquid nitrogen freezing agent to abnormal tissue. The skin must be frozen quickly and then slowly defrosted to ensure the maximum killing of targeted cells. Additional applications may be required in some situations.

3.

The skin surrounding the frozen lesion will turn white before defrosting to normal skin temperature; it takes one to two minutes. In most cases, Cryotherapy does not require any particular aftercare.

F.A.Q.

Cryotherapy is a non-invasive procedure that is generally well tolerated. 

Compared to traditional surgery, it typically results in less pain and bleeding and a lower risk of harming healthy tissue around the abnormal cells. 

During the liquid nitrogen administration, you may experience some discomfort, but not enough to require a local anaesthetic.

A scab will form over your skin lesion in the days after your Cryotherapy treatment. The lesion will generally go off in one to two weeks, although it may take longer on your leg. Over that time, the lesion will be gone, and your skin will return to normal. However, there are occasions when a second treatment is required. I’ll be able to give you a clearer sense of what to expect in your specific situation during your initial consultation.

I can treat most skin lesions just in one treatment; however, some deep lesions require more sessions.

After your Cryotherapy treatment, it’s typical for the treated area to become red, blister, and form a scab, which heals in one to three weeks. The crust will ultimately come off on its own.

Any little discomfort should be gone within three days. Pain can be controlled using over-the-counter medication.
