cryotherapy

WHAT IS CRYOTHERAPY?

An advanced freezing innovation that is a fast, effective, safe, and new solution for removal of skin imperfections. Procedures typically last from 5 to 30 seconds, so you can be in and out of the clinic quickly.

Emitting a fine jet of super cold gas under high pressure, we work to millimetre precision. The device destroys the tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid, forming ice shards and crystals which rupture the membrane, thereby destroying the cell. That means there will be no collateral damage to healthy tissue. It is so incredibly accurate and practical.

Cryotherapy has been used in medicine for many years and offers the most successful, safe, reliable and effective treatment for many clients with less likelihood of scarring or recurrence than some other treatment methods. The procedure can be carried out after an initial consultation and only takes a few minutes. Often more than one treatment is needed to eliminate a skin lesion.

PRE-TREATMENT ADVICE
  • In the days leading up to your appointment, it is a good idea to give a wart or verrucae a bit of TLC!
  • The treatment works best when the skin covering these lesions is soft and slightly opened. Follow the steps below to allow the treatment to work effectively:
  • Soak the lesion in a bowl of warm, soapy water for 20 minutes
  • With a pumice stone or emery board (nail file), gently scrub the lesion until the skin becomes rough.
  • Please do not scrub so hard that you make the area sore. Discontinue these steps if bleeding occurs. You are not trying to open a wound or cause discomfort. However, the more deeply the jet of nitrous oxide can penetrate, the better the chances of removal after one treatment are.​
POST TREATMENT ADVICE

Blisters: Blistering can happen with any cryotherapy treatment and is indiscriminate. The Cryopen is the most effective way of avoiding blisters as we are only treating the affected area and not healthy tissue. If a blister does appear, please don’t pop it. It will go down on its own. If it pops, weeping may occur. If so, use a smear of Savlon or Germolene cream twice a day. An adhesive dressing such as a plaster can be used to cover the area to protect it.

 

Skin Tags: These turn black at the base and drop off over a period of one to six weeks. Larger skin tags of 3mm+ may need a second freeze. Please contact us after six weeks if they need to be retreated.  If the area does become tender, you can use use Savlon or Germolene twice a day. A plaster can be used to cover the area to stop the treated area being irritated by clothing rubbing on it.

 

Warts and Verrucae: It is recommended if they are still there, warts and verrucae should be re-treated 4 weeks after your first treatment. There is no aftercare apart from if the treated area develops a blister.

 

Milia: These are superficial keratin filled epidermal cysts and normally flatten and disappear with Cryotherapy quite quickly. There is no need to do anything other than follow the blister advice if one appears

 

Pigmentation and cherry Angiomas: The treated area may raise and look like a bee-sting. Do not worry this is perfectly normal. The redness will subside in a few hours.
