What is Cryotherapy?
Cryopen treatment is the effective and controlled destruction of unwanted tissue. The process of cryotherapy involves the precise application of a freezing gas (liquid nitrogen) to the lesion for a few seconds which ruptures the cell membrane and destroys the cell. The Cryopen is so accurate that lesions measuring just 1 mm across can be targeted, with minimal damage to surrounding tissue.
Cryotherapy is recognised as a no-pain treatment with no preparation and no follow up care required.
After treatment, a blister may form, followed by a scab, which will fall off 7-10 days later.
A session of cryotherapy usually takes 5-15 minutes.

FAQs & Aftercare
Within approximately 3 days you will notice a change in the treated area, between the seventh and tenth day the skin lesion should shed. Healing will then begin, after 3 – 6 weeks optimum results will be seen.
The treated area will heal with a growth of healthy skin. The new skin may contain less pigment that the original skin and should end up smooth. The new skin grows across the area from the edges and from deep follicles. This is underneath the scab that forms.
Pain, blistering, your skin may become darker (hyperpigmentation) or lighter (hypopigmentation).
