for Quick, Pain-Free Removal of Skin Tags, Moles, and More
Cryotherapy employs a precision-focused jet of highly compressed liquefied Nitrous Oxide (N2O) to effectively eliminate benign lesions. This innovative treatment freezes the inter-cellular fluid within the lesions, forming ice crystals that rupture the cell membrane, ultimately destroying the cells. The advanced applicator tips ensure precise treatment, targeting only the lesion while preserving the surrounding healthy tissue. This approach significantly reduces the risk of post-treatment hypo and hyper-pigmentation, making it a safe choice for treating areas near the eyes and all over the face and body.
Conditions Treated with Cryotherapy:
Cryotherapy is highly effective for treating various skin conditions, including:
- Skin Tags
- Cherry Angiomas
- Benign Moles
- Solar Lentigo
- Seborrheic Keratosis
- Sebaceous Hyperplasia
- Actinic Keratosis
- Filiforms (warts)
Who Should Avoid Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy may not be suitable for the following cases:
- Undiagnosed Skin Lesions
- Patients with Dark Skin
- Lesions Requiring Tissue Pathology
- Patients with a History of Adverse Reactions to Cryotherapy or Those Unable to Tolerate Side Effects
- Conditions Exacerbated by Cold Exposure, Including Raynaud's Disease, Cold Urticaria, and Cryoglobulinemia
Sun Damaged/Spots & Ageing Skin Treatments
The Treatment Process:
A personalized consultation tailors your treatment plan.
Initiate a customized skincare routine to enhance results and minimize complications, such as hyperpigmentation.
Thoroughly cleanse the skin.
No need for topical anesthesia, as the procedure is relatively pain-free.
Treat up to 8 lesions in a single session.
Due to the blistering effect, please arrange your treatment session around your social events
Diligent use of sunscreen and moisturizer.
Avoid active skincare products like exfoliating agents and retinols until treated areas heal.
Once the blister dries to a scab, refrain from picking at it; the scab naturally peels off after 5–10 days on the face.
Possible Side Effects
- Temporary local nerve damage
- Permanent hypopigmentation or scarring
- Atrophic scarring
- Alopecia or loss of hair (if lesions are over a hair-bearing area)
- Persistent or recurrent skin lesions, requiring further cryotherapy, surgery, or other treatment
- Discomfort for less than 45 seconds
- Paraesthesia (temporary)
- Swelling especially around the eyes, forehead and lips
- Secondary wound infections
