What is Cryotherapy?
We are pleased to offer Croytherapy™ an advanced treatment using nitrous oxide to treat skin imperfections. The Cryopen™ emits a fine jet of nitrous oxide under high pressure, allowing your technician to work with millimetre precision. This quickly, safely and effectively freezes unhealthy tissue, with no damage to surrounding healthy skin.
Benefits of Cryotherapy?
Many people suffer from common skin imperfections such as pigmentation, warts or verrucae without realising just how easy, effective and affordable treatment is. Many of the imperfections we are able to treat using Cryotherapy are no longer treated on the NHS, leaving many people trying to resolve their concerns with ineffective over the counter solutions, which very rarely work. Despite the fact that fibroma and age spots are usually harmless, for the person who has them they are nevertheless quite bothersome and perceived as a flaw. With Cryopen™ you can now have these treatments performed at your convenience within our clinic, at an affordable cost and with no downtime. Cryotherapy is particularly effective for stubborn pigmentation and is excellent for “age” spots found on the hands, chest and other areas of the body. Patients can resume their normal daily activities directly after receiving this treatment with the exception of swimming and steam rooms.
Cryopen™ is an ideal method of treatment for the following imperfections;
- Solar lentigo
- Age spots
- Viral Verrucae
Treatments start from as little as £35-00 per session and often only one session is required.
What can I expect of my treatment?
The histamine in the area treated will create an itchy sensation for about ten minutes, do not worry this – it is perfectly normal. 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 so this is quite rare. If blisters do form, 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. You can also use Savlon or Germolene if the area is tender. You can use a non-alcoholic baby wipe to remove any debris from the area affected.
Skin Tags:These turn black at the base and drop off over a period of one to six weeks. Larger skin tags 3mm+ may need a second freeze, please contact us after six if they need to be retreated.If the area does become tender please use Savlon or Germolene twice a day and a plaster can be used to cover the area.
Warts/Verrucae:It is recommended if they are still there warts should be retreated after 4 weeks following your first treatment. There is no aftercare apart from if it blisters.
Milia:As these are superficial keratin filled epidermal cysts these normally flatten and disappear with
Pigmentation/cherry Angiomas: The treated area may raise and look like a bee sting do not worry this is perfectly normal it will go down in a few hours. Over the next 24hours the area will go darker and create a small crust on the surface do not pick off. When it naturally falls off you will see new skin (shiny pink) this is not scarring. It will re pigment over the following weeks.
