What is Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy is the use of extreme cold produced by liquid nitrous oxide for the fast, effective and safe solution for the controlled destruction of unwanted skin imperfections.The CryoPen™ is a FDA and CE registered advanced cryotherapy innovation. It is a pen-like instrument which delivers a fine pinpoint spray of liquid nitrous oxide at a constant temperature of minus-127 degrees under high pressure which allows the therapist to work with millimetre precision. This means the nitrous oxide is delivered directly to the treated area and not to the healthy surrounding tissue .
Will there be scarring?
Rarely. Both hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin) and hypopigmentation (lightening of the skin) may occur temporarily after cryotherapy. Both generally last for a maximum of a few months. Pigment change is more common in darker skin types.
What areas can be treated?
Many different superficial skin lesions can be treated with cryotherapy including viral warts, seborrhoeic keratosis, actinic ,milia , age spots , keratosis and other benign lesions. It is essential that a correct diagnosis is made before treatment as we do not treat any cancerous lesions . If a lesion looks suspicious of skin cancer, you will be advised to seek advice from your Doctor .

How permanent is the cure?
For most lesions, Cryotherapy is a permanent removal. Some lesions are harder to remove than others. In more delicate places eg the eye area, a shorter freeze time with a repeat procedure may be required to get a final result with the least damage to the surrounding skin. In other instances a deep lesion eg a verruca or a wart may take several aggressive treatments to get final results.
