Cryotherapy is the use of low temperatures for the removal of skin imperfections, including warts, verrucae and skin tags. Procedures typically last from 5 to 25 seconds, so you can be in and out of the clinic very quickly (consultation and treatment typically takes just 15 minutes). Our highly trained nurses at one of our clinics in Chesterfield, Newark and Nottingham, use the excellent CryoPen™ system to provide effective cryotherapy treatments.
The CryoPen™ emits a fine jet of nitrous oxide under high pressure, which allows the practitioner 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 cell. That means there will be no collateral damage to healthy tissue.

Cosmetic conditions such as skin tags, milia and cherry angiomas are no longer being treated by many doctors on the NHS. With the CryoPen™ you can now have these treatments, quickly, effectively and safely at one of our clinics in Chesterfield, Newark and Nottingham.
