Try Cryotherapy & Electrocautery with Becky

What is Cryotherapy and what does it treat?

An advanced, fast, effective and safe treatment solution for the removal of skin imperfections. Procedures typically last for 5 to 30 seconds so you can be in and out very quickly.

Cryotherapy offers the ideal treatment for:

  • Warts and Verrucae
  • Blood Spots
  • Skin Tags
  • Milia
  • Pigmentation


Unwanted Skin Conditions:

When it comes to unwanted skin conditions, advanced electrolysis is an effective and proven treatment targeted to remove them. These conditions include warts, milia, red veins, age spots and many more.

This is a fast and effective method that uses a heated needle/probe to either cauterize of lift away the epidermis, depending on the type of concern you are having treating. It is generally described as feeling like a warm stinging sensation.

Warts / Seborrhoeic Keratosis – This is the go-to solution for persistent warts where cryotherapy and acids have failed. It’s effective in 65-85% of cases.

Skin Tags – Can be safely removed causing minimal disruption to your skin.

Red veins – Fading 3 weeks after treatment. There is likely to be a noticeable difference after one treatment.

Milia – Once cauterized, the milia is reabsorbed into the skin

How the process works

Cryotheraphy uses a fine jet of Nitrous Oxide which is emitted under high pressure, allowing me to work with millimetre precision. This destroys the tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid, forming ice shards and crystals which rupture the membrane, thus destroying the cell.

The applicator is held as close as possible to the skin imperfection and moved quickly towards and away from it. This can vary between 1-30 seconds, depending on the size and depth.

  • Removes unsightly skin tags, warts and age spots leaving that perfect finish
  • Minimally invasive


Advanced electrolysis, also termed electrocautery, is an established method of treatment that uses thermolysis current, via a very fine needle, to cauterise or lift away the superficial dermis. This technique successfully reduces the appearance of unwanted skin blemishes and offers effective, immediate and long term results.

During treatment cryotherapy has an extremely cold, sharp, stinging sensation. For most this will settle very quickly but for some it may persist for a few hours.

The treated area can sometimes feel mildly irritated or itchy after this.

Headaches can occur following cryotherapy to the scalp or forehead. The headache usually responds well to simple pain killers and rarely lasts more than a few hours.

You may have redness and swelling

Like a burn, the treated area turns red in the minutes after treatment. This redness can last for 1 to 2 weeks. There may also be swelling and/or puffiness of the treated area. This is likely to settle within a few days.

Scabs or crusts

Treated lesions often develop a scab. This is more common on the face or scalp, and can last for  a week. When the scabs fall off, they leave behind a pale pink area of healing skin. In most cases, this colour returns to normal over several weeks.


The treated area may develop a blister in the hours after treatment.  Blisters are usually painless, but they may weep a small amount of clear fluid. Just keep them clean and dry and do not pick, burst or touch unnecessarily. If you wish, you can cover the blister with a plaster or  simple dressing for a few days. Do not use any creams, powders or ointments on the blister.

If there are no blisters or scabs, no special treatment is necessary. You can shower, swim and bathe normally

Frequently Asked Questions?

Is the treatment painful?

There will be a pain sensation similar to a stinging nettle on the skin when the Nitrous Oxide reaches the bottom of the area. This is normal, there may also be a residual stinging for a few minutes after treatment.

How safe is Cryo/ Electrocautery

This is a relatively low risk procedure.

Cryo – It delivers a freeze directly to the area, and not the healthy surrounding tissue.

Electrocautery – It delivers a electrowave to the area.  There maybe some discomfort.

Do I need more than one treatment?

For some warts, pigmentation and verrucae it can take for 1 to 4 treatments. We can offer no guarantees that this will completely remove the wart/pigmentation or verrucae after these sessions.

Are there any side effects?

Cryo – The area treated is frozen. This kills the localised cells in the area which causes them to shrivel and die. The treated area may go darker for a few weeks but will return to normal pigmented skin in about 6 weeks.

Electrocautery – In most cases you are left with either a small mark or a scab which will heal and fall off over the next couple of weeks. For most this means very little if any downtime.
