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.

How does it work?

A fine jet of Nitrous Oxide 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.

Cryotherapy offers the ideal treatment for:

  • Skin tags
  • Warts
  • Viral Verrucae
  • Age spots
  • Milia
  • Cherry Angioma
  • Pigmentation

FAQ

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 Cryotherapy?

This is a relatively low risk procedure. It delivers a freeze directly to the area, and not the healthy surrounding tissue.

Do I need more than one treatment?

For some warts, pigmentation and verrucae additional sessions are required – this will be discussed at your consultation.

Are there any side effects?

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.

How it works

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.

Aftercare

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.

Blisters

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.
