Cryotherapy, what is it and what does it treat?
This is a new and fast solution for the removal of skin tags, warts, sunspots, cherry angiomas, actinic keratosis and minor imperfections.
The Cryotherapy pen emits a fine jet of Nitrous oxide under high pressure, allowing the practitioner millimetre precision.
What does the treatment involve?
The treatment is carried out in the clinic under an outpatient appointment with a practitioner. The appointments usually take between 10/15 minutes; however, the first appointment may take 30 minutes and for some treatments, several visits maybe required. These are usually repeated over regular intervals.
After the procedure
Adverse effects of cryotherapy are usually minor and short-lived. Over the next few days, a scab will form, and this can take one to two weeks and on occasion a little longer to fall off, although for some patient’s discoloration and scarring is possible particularly on the legs.
Initial consultation without treatment £25.00 pounds.
Treatments starting at £90.00 depending on the course of action needed.
