A lot of you may not know we offer a revolutionary treatment called Cryotherapy.
Cryotherapy is the easy, painless removal of benign skin lesions and skin tags. It works by rapidly freezing affected skin tissue to destroy it. It has been used successfully for nearly a century and is a proven, safe method of removing unwanted and unsightly skin tags and lesions.
CryoPen is a pen-like device that uses a precise, powerful microjet of cold gas to freeze skin tissue to -89°C. This means no pain, no damage to surrounding tissue and no unsightly scars. Your practitioner simply points the CryoPen at the lesion, presses a trigger, and sprays cold gas for 2-45 seconds, depending on the size of the lesion. The pen precision ensures only the treatment area freezes leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. Frozen tissue will then form a scab that will fall off and disappear in a couple of weeks taking the skin tag or lesion with it.
Does it hurt?
You will feel a cold sensation followed by a slight sting, this signals that the freezing is complete and the treatment is done. Some patients may feel a lingering stinging like sensation or a slight discomfort – this is more annoying than painful.
Is Cryotherapy suitable for you?
If you have any unsightly or annoying lesion(s) that you’d like to get rid of, ask your doctor to check it to ensure it is benign, and clear you for CryoPen treatment. CryoPen can remove most common lesions such as skin tags, hemangioma, sunspots (solar lentigo), pigmented spots, actinic or seborrheic keratoses easily and quickly. There should be no scarring, though it’s important to note hair may not regrow over the treated areas and darker skins may experience depigmentation.
