WHAT IS CRYOTHERAPY
AND WHAT DOES IT TREAT? HOW IT WORKS
DESCRIPTION: The applicator is held as close as possible to the skin
imperfection and moved quickly towards and away from it.
This could be from 1-30 seconds, depending on the size
- Removes unsightly skin tags, warts and age spots for
that perfect finish
- Minimally invasive
Cryotherapy is an advanced innovation that
is a fast, effective, safe and new solution for removal of
skin imperfections. Procedures typically last from 5 to 30
seconds depending on how many imperfection you are removing , so you can be in and out of the clinic quickly.
The Cryotherapy emits a fine jet of nitrous oxide under
high pressure, which allows the 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.
That means there will be no collateral damage to healthy
tissue. It’s so incredibly accurate and practical.
Cosmetic procedures such as skin tags, milia and cherry
angiomas are no longer being treated by doctors on
the NHS. With the Cryotherapy you can now have these
treatments done in the clinic .

Are there any side effects?
The area treated is frozen by cryotherapy. This kills
the localised cells in the area which cause them to
shrivel and die. The treated area may go darker over
a few weeks, but will return to normal pigmented skin
in about 6 weeks.
How long are Cryotherapy treatments?
The duration of the treatment time will depend on
the surface area and the thickness of the tissue being
treated. Upon the clinical evaluation of the depth of
the area, the clinician will choose an application time
from 1 to 30 seconds.
How much will the treatment cost?
The cost of treatment will depend on
the size of the area. Make an appointment with your
clinician to discuss costs and to assess your area.
How safe is cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy is a relatively low-risk procedure.
Cryotherapy delivers N20 directly to the area, and not
the healthy surrounding tissue. Cryotherapy is both CE
and FDA registered.
Is the treatment painful?
There will be a pain sensation similar to a stinging
nettle on the skin when the nitrous oxide reaches the
bottom of the area. There might be a little residual
stinging for a few minutes after treatment.
