For The Removal of Benign Skin Lesions
Cryotherapy is a state of the art treatment that uses extreme cold to painlessly and safely destroy cosmetic (no longer treated by the NHS) unwanted, benign and superficial lesions on the surface of the skin, such as:-
Solar Lentigines (also known as liver spots, age and sun spots)
HOW DOES IT WORK?
'CryoPen O' emits a fine jet of Nitrous Oxide N2O under high pressure, which allows your clinician to work with millimetre precision. This destroys the tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid, forming ice shards and crystals which rupture the membrane, thereby destroying the cell. The extreme precision of 'Cryopen O' allows your clinician to work on benign lesion/s with no collateral damage to healthy tissue. After treatment, it is advisable to leave the area uncovered as this speeds up the healing process. Your clinician will talk through your aftercare with you.
Benefits over other treatments:
- CryoPen O therapy takes far less time; with treatment sessions lasting less than 2 minutes
- No anaesthesia is required and it is virtually painless
- It is one of the least invasive lesion treatments in the market
- It is used in the treatment of virtually any benign skin lesion
