What is Cryotherapy?

Cryopen therapy has proven to be an effective and safe method for the removal of various skin blemishes. Cryotherapy is effective for removing small skin tags and moles, but it may require  multiple treatment sessions for larger or deeper growths. The procedure is relatively quick and usually 
well-tolerated by patients. However, some discomfort or temporary skin irritation may occur during 
and after the treatment. The procedure uses a specialized device called the CryoPen, which infuses  nitrous oxide into the affected area, killing the underlying tissues. The destroyed cells' reproductive DNA  prevents the blemishes from returning, providing lasting benefits. It's important to note that while  cryotherapy is a common method for removing benign skin growths, it may not be suitable for all types 
of moles or skin lesions.

Cryotherapy treatment

Additionally, there is a risk of scarring, pigmentation changes, or recurrence with  any removal method, so it's essential to consult with a dermatologist or healthcare professional to  determine the most appropriate treatment for your specific situation. They can assess the lesion, provide  guidance on the best removal method, and perform the procedure safely.

How does the crypopen therapy procedure work?

  • Preparation: Before the procedure, the area around the skin tag or mole is cleaned thoroughly. 
  • Application of cold: A cryotherapy device, often containing liquid nitrogen or another freezing agent, 
  • is applied to the skin tag or mole. The extreme cold temperature freezes the tissues, causing cellular 
  • damage.
  • Cellular destruction: The freezing temperature destroys the cells within the skin tag or mole. 
  • Formation of a scab: After the treatment, a scab forms over the treated area as the damaged tissue heals.
  • Healing and removal: Over the following days or weeks, the scab falls off naturally, and the skin tag or mole is gradually eliminated.

Cryopen therapy is performed on specific areas of the face or body where skin imperfection improvement is required. Areas typically treated are for benign skin lesions such as skin tags, moles, pigmentation, sunspots, liver spots,  seborrheic keratosis, warts and verrucas
