Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy is a fast, effective and safe way of removing skin imperfections.

A fine jet of nitrous oxide under high pressure is emitted within a millimetre of precision. Tissue is destroyed by freezing the inter-cellular fluid, forming ice shards and crystals which rupture the membrane, thereby destroying the cell. This means that there is no collateral damage to healthy tissue.

Cryotherapy is the ideal treatment for:

  • Skin Tags
  • Sun Damage
  • Age Spots
  • Milia
  • Warts
  • Cherry Spots

Cryotherapy is a relatively low risk, minimally invasive treatment.

Following there will be a pain sensation similar to a stinging nettle when the nitrous oxide reaches the bottom of the area. There may be a little residual stinging for a few minutes after treatment, which is normal.

The treated area may go darker over a few weeks, but will return to normal pigmented skin in about 6 weeks.
