WHAT IS CRYOTHERAPY?

Cryotherapy is the controlled destruction of unwanted tissue by the precise application of extreme cold. Cryotherapy treatment refers to the removal of skin lesions and moles by freezing them with liquid nitrogen. For most people this is the most effective and least invasive treatment available.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CRYOTHERAPY?

Treatment with the CryoPen™ offers safe, quick & painless freezing treatment for the effective removal of a range of medical and cosmetic skin lesions. Due to the fine jet of nitrous oxide emitted from the CryoPen™ the process of Cryotherapy is incredibly safe and accurate.

HOW DOES CRYOTHERAPY WORK?

Cryotherapy is medical non-surgical treatment involving the removal of skin lesions by using liquid nitrogen to freeze the skin cells until they die. The freezing treatment normally involves 5-30 seconds of the liquid spray being applied with the CryoPen™; a further freezing treatment can be applied after a short break dependent on the skin type and the nature of the problem.

In the days following treatment with the CryoPen™, the treated skin lesion may become darker and will begin to crust. The crusted skin lesion will eventually flake away; this could take anywhere between 1-6 weeks. Healing time varies from patient to patient and is largely dependent on the skin type and the skin lesion that has been treated. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled for 4-6 weeks following your treatment to review the results of the Cryotherapy and assess whether a further treatment as required. Any treatments performed at review appointments are free of charge.

WHO CARRIES OUT THE CRYOTHERAPY TREATMENT AT THE CLINIC?

IS CRYOTHERAPY SUITABLE FOR ME?

Cryotherapy is safe for all adults and children of all skin types and ethnicities. Cryotherapy is not recommended in patients with some medical conditions, however, following full medical consultation and skin examination with Dr Ayanna Knight your suitability for treatment will be assessed.

WHAT WILL MY SKIN LOOK LIKE AFTER CRYOPEN™ TREATMENT?

Following Cryotherapy treatment, the area of skin may be red and slightly swollen. In the hours that follow, the skin may become darker, slightly itchy or tender. 3-4 days following Cryotherapy, the treated skin lesion may become darker and will begin to crust. The crusted skin lesion will eventually flake away in the coming weeks.

Once this lesion comes away there will be new skin in the area treated that will be pink or slightly lighter than your normal skin tone. This skin is still healing, so it is essential to apply sunblock (SPF 50+) to sun exposed areas such as the face, neck and hands until the area has repigmented to your normal skin tone and completely healed.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

We advise full healing time could be up to 4-6 weeks although some smaller lesions may heal in less than 4 weeks. Following Cryotherapy treatment, the area of skin may be red and slightly swollen. In the hours that follow, the skin may become darker, slightly itchy or tender. 3-4 days following Cryotherapy, the treated skin lesion may become darker and will begin to crust; this crusted lesion will eventually flake away.

It is absolutely essential to apply sunblock (SPF 50+) to sun exposed areas such as the face, neck and hands until the area has completely healed and repigmented to your normal skin tone. Application of sunblock is essential following treatment to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin) of the area of skin treated and to ensure optimum healing. Healing time varies from patient to patient and is largely dependent on the skin type and the nature of the skin lesion that has been treated.

WILL I NEED MORE THAN ONE CRYOTHERAPY TREATMENT?

Some lesions such as large moles and skin tags in intimate areas are likely to require more than one Cryotherapy treatment. Some warts and verrucae may require 4 or more treatments. At your follow-up appointment with Dr Ayanna Knight, the results of the Cryotherapy treatment will be reviewed to assess whether a further treatment as required. Any further treatments performed at review appointments are inclusive in the price you pay at your initial appointment.

WHAT DEVICE DOES THE CLINIC USE FOR CRYOTHERAPY?

Dr Ayanna Knight performs the treatment with the innovative CryoPen™X which emits a pressurised, super fine jet of nitrous oxide from its tip, making the treatment incredibly accurate and safe. The CryoPen™X is the most advanced of the CryoPen™devices available and can treat larger skin imperfections as well as medical skin lesions such as Seborrhoeic Warts, Birthmarks and precancerous skin changes.
