Cryotherapy: What is it and what does it treat?

By May 15, 2020No Comments

Here at MedSkin, our medical knowledge and passion for what we do includes bringing you a range of Cryotherapy treatments. Cryotherapy is simply the removal of skin imperfections and can be performed very quickly and simply at one of our clinics in Chesterfield, Newark or Nottingham.

How it works

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. We 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.

What can Cryotherapy treat?

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.

Milia – these tiny bumps on the skin are very common and often appear on eyelids and cheeks

Warts – 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.
