WHAT IS CRYOTHERAPY AND WHAT DOES IT TREAT?

Advanced Cryotherapy is a fast, effective, safe and new solution for removal of skin imperfections. Procedures typically last from 5 to 30 seconds after a full consultation has been carried out.
A fine jet of nitrous oxide under high pressure is applied to the area, which allows the clinician to work with millimetre precision. This destroys the tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid, forming ice shards and crystals which rupture the membrane, thereby destroying the cells. That means there will be no collateral damage to healthy tissue. It is incredibly accurate and practical.
Cosmetic procedures such as skin tags, milia and cherry angiomas are no longer being treated by many doctors on the NHS.

HOW IT WORKS

The applicator is held as close as possible to the skin imperfection and moved quickly towards and away from it. This could be from 1-30 seconds, depending on the size and depth. Removes unsightly skin tags, verrucas, warts, milia, and cherry angiomas and is minimally invasive.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Are there any side effects?

The area treated is frozen by cryotherapy. This kills the localised cells in the area which cause them to shrivel and die. The treated area may go darker over a few weeks, but will return to normal pigmented skin in about 6 weeks.

How long will the treatment take?

The duration of the treatment time will depend on the surface area and the thickness of the tissue being treated. Upon the clinical evaluation of the depth of the area, the clinician will choose an application time from 1 to 30 seconds.

How safe is Cryotherapy?

Cryotherapy is a relatively low-risk procedure. The procedure delivers N20 directly to the area, and not the healthy surrounding tissue.

Is the treatment painful?

There will be some slight discomfort similar to a stinging nettle on the skin when the nitrous oxide reaches the bottom of the area. There might be a little residual stinging for a few minutes after treatment but this usually settles down very quickly.
