WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE?
The CryoPen® Cryosurgical System® is a state-of-the-art form of cryosurgery and cryotherapy, which uses accurate pen-point precision to perform a variety of simple skin procedures.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The CryoPen® combines compressed cooling technology in the form of liquid nitrogen to injure the target site and help the skin to regenerate. The controlled trauma created by CryoPen® causes the treated area to darken and form a crust, which is gradually shed over the coming days or weeks. It is an effective option for tackling many skin-related conditions.
WHO IS IT FOR?
CryoPen® is suitable for those suffering from:
- Warts/ Plantar Warts
- White Heads/ Lentigo
- Seborrheic keratosis
- Actinic keratosis
- Skin tags
- Pigmented Lesions
IS IT SAFE?
Yes – the CryoPen® ensures consistent freezing, as a result of a guaranteed temperature indicator. The use of CryoPen® greatly reduces the risk of burns in comparison to previous similar techniques.
IS IT PAINFUL?
The sensation of CryoPen® is that of extreme cold, or a slight ‘burning’. However, treatment time is quick and normally lasts no more than a few minutes. There is no need for patients to receive topical anaesthetic.
WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME?
There is very little to no downtime following the procedures we offer which implement the use of the CryoPen®; however, the treated area can be a little tender over the following days.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Full healing is normally achieved within 1-2 weeks, once the skin crust has fallen off and brand-new skin has been revealed. The CryoPen® leaves minimal to no scarring whatsoever.
