Cryotherapy

Benign skin lesion removal

The term ‘cryotherapy’ literally means ‘treatment using low temperature’ and refers to the removal of skin lesions by freezing them. We use liquid nitrogen to achieve this. The pen used, as shown in the photo opposite is used to freeze the skin lesion. The procedure itself lasts a matter of seconds.The frozen skin becomes white and takes one to two minutes to thaw back to normal skin temperature. We may suggest that the process be repeated once the skin has thawed. After a few days, a scab will form, and this will take one to two weeks to fall off, occasionally a little longer. 

Depending on the nature of the lesion, more than one treatment may be necessary.

A wide variety of superficial benign (non-cancerous) lesions can be treated with cryotherapy, such as skin tags, viral warts, seborrhoeic keratoses, and other benign lesions. Please note this is not a diagnostic service and if there any suspicions about the origin of the lesion you will be directed to your GP or dermatologist for further assessment.
