Cryotherapy – Freezing Warts, Skin Tags and more

Cryotherapy uses low temperatures to remove imperfections such as warts or skin tags. Following an initial consultation of approximately 15 minutes, the process takes between 5 and 25 seconds, so it really is a super-fast and effective treatment.

Warts – Ask your GP: Call your local doctors surgery

Your doctor will first examine the mole to determine whether cryotherapy is a suitable treatment. This assessment is based on the mole’s size, depth, and location, as well as the patient’s medical history. Your GP may refer you to a dermatologist if they suspect it’s not suitable for cryosurgery with private healthcare at Medskin Clinics.

Our private nurses use a CryoPen to deliver our range of Cryotherapy treatments, which emits a fine jet of nitrous oxide under high pressure, which destroys the tissue by freezing the cellular fluid.

Cryotherapy is popular due to its simplicity and effectiveness for treating many types of skin lesions and bumps, including some moles. After the treatment, the frozen tissue thaws and may swell, blister, and form a crust. Over the next few weeks, the treated area heals, and the dead tissue from the mole sloughs off. The skin may initially appear lighter in the treated area and usually returns to normal color over time.

Skin Tags

Skin tags are simply noncancerous, pain-free growths on the skin and often appear under the eyelids or armpits.

Solar Lentigo

This refers to a patch of darkened skin, which is harmless, but some people may feel self-conscious about.

Age Spots

These are very common as we get older and vary in shape and size. They usually appear on areas that have experienced the most exposure to the sun such as the face and arms.


Tiny bumps on the skin are very common and often appear on eyelids and cheeks


Warts can be distinguished from verrucas because they look like a solid blister or a small cauliflower. They are contagious and can easily be passed on so Cryotherapy is an effective way to quickly deal with them.

Cherry Angioma

These red moles can appear anywhere on the skin and are caused by broken small blood vessels

Viral Verrucae

These appear on the soles of the feet and often have a black dot at the centre

The good news about Cryotherapy is that it is a permanent solution for treating these things and not painful, although you may experience a slight tingling sensation.

Medskin Private Nurse-Led Treatment

During the procedure, your private nurse applies liquid nitrogen directly to the mole using a spray device or a cotton swab. Liquid nitrogen is extremely cold, with a temperature of around -196 degrees Celsius (-321 degrees Fahrenheit).

Freezing and topical effects: The rapid freezing of the mole destroys the cells within it. This intense cold causes ice crystals to form inside your skin cells, which disrupts their function and causes them to die. This process is very quick, typically lasting just a few seconds per treatment.

Cryotherapy Recovery Period and After Care

Depending on the mole’s characteristics and how it responds to the initial treatment, multiple sessions may be needed. After the procedure, Medskin nurses may schedule follow-up appointments to monitor the healing process and determine if further treatment is necessary.
