Non surgical removal of unwanted skin lesions

CryoPen O_edited.jpg

What is it?

CryoPen™ is a state of the art treatment that uses extreme cold, or cryotherapy, to painlessly and safely destroy unwanted, benign and superficial lesions on the surface of the skin. Cryotherapy (also known as Cryosurgery) is a safe and highly effective method of freezing and removing benign skin lesions.

How does it work?

The CryoPen™ freezes at a rate of approximately 1mm per 5 seconds. The nitrous oxide destroys the tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid in a matter of seconds, forming ice shards and crystals which rupture the membrane, thereby destroying the cell. That means there will be no collateral damage to healthy tissue.

When will I see results?

Over time, the cells targeted in cryotherapy sessions will shrivel and die. It typically takes a few weeks for you to enjoy the final result, but this can vary depending on the size and type of the lesion that you want removed. For example, skin tags turn black at the base and normally drop off after four weeks.

What can be treated?

Skin tags, warts, verrucas, pigmentation, milia, age/sun spots, cherry angiomas & moles*.

Treating moles*

The CryoPen™ can remove moles quickly and effectively. However, we require all moles to be checked by a GP with 6 weeks prior to treatment to ensure they are benign and causing no concern.
