An advanced freezing innovation that is a fast, effective, safe and new solution for removal of skin imperfections. Procedures typically last from 5 to 30 seconds, so you can be in and out of the clinic quickly.

Emitting a fine jet of super cold gas under high pressure, we work to millimetre precision. The device 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 is so incredibly accurate and practical.

Cryotherapy has been used in medicine for many years and offers the most successful, safe, reliable and effective treatment for many clients with less likelihood of scarring or recurrence than some other treatment methods. The procedure can be carried out after an initial consultation and only takes a few minutes. Often more than one treatment is needed to eliminate a skin lesion.

Cryotherapy is a medical procedure which involves the application of nitrous oxide gas under high pressure to the skin where the unwanted lesions are frozen and destroyed. The tip of the Cryotherapy pen may reach as low as -89oC although the aim is to create a thermal shock to the tissue which involves a rapid drop of temperature. This has the effect of crystallising the contents of the body cells leading to destruction of the skin lesion. The duration of the treatment is dependent on the size and nature of the lesion, but generally each lesion just takes a matter of seconds. It is usual to see a frost or icefield appear on the top of the lesion during treatment.  A ‘freeze-thaw-freeze’ approach is often used when the lesion is frozen, allowed to defrost for a few seconds and then a second treatment applied.

A follow up visit is recommended after 2-4 weeks to assess response to treatment and further application if required. Over the following days, a scab will often form, and the lesion may become a little red and angry looking. This will usually resolve over 1-4 weeks and the area remaining will often return to normal, although it is possible to develop a small area of scarring or change in skin colour. Lesions treated on the legs often take a little more time to heal. It is important not to pick at the scab as this may lead to scarring.

The safety of cryotherapy has long been established and the risk of complications is lower than many other treatments.

No anaesthetic is required for cryotherapy and it is usually very well tolerated with only minimal discomfort. During the procedure, mild discomfort may be experienced that is like the pressure with a ball point pen on the skin although pain can be more intense as more freezing is applied. There is sometimes some residual stinging after treatment which may last for several minutes. Following the treatment, the skin lesion will become red and sore, there may be some blistering and occasionally a scab may form.
