Safe removal of benign lesions
Cryotherapy with the CryoPen™ is a safe, fast, and advanced new solution for the removal of benign skin imperfections and hyperpigmentation. The handheld device uses a fine jet of nitrous oxide to freeze skin lesions such as skin tags, age spots, millia, warts, cherry angiomas, verrucae, and sun spots. It works by freezing the fluid and water within the cells of the targeted skin, rupturing the cell membranes and causing the removal of the affected cells. This means there is no damage to the surrounding healthy tissue and its precise application allows for the optimum accuracy.

The treatment is very quick, requiring no anaesthetic and no incisions during your treatment process. After your treatment, the area will turn white and eventually raise into redness. After 2-24 hours, this raised redness may turn into a blister which may take several days to dissolve, though this is rare. A crust will form for 10-14 days before it falls away to reveal healthy and healed skin.
