Cryotherapy lesion Removal
During treatment, highly pressurised liquid nitrous oxide is used to destroy skin tissue. It works by causing cryogenic cell death: killing the unwanted cells with extremely cold temperatures. CryoPen treatment is relatively pain-free, with most of our patients experiencing a mild stinging sensation for only seconds.
The tissue is destroyed by freezing the inter-cellular fluid, with formation of ice crystals. This leads to rupture of the cell membrane and destroying the cell. That means there will be no collateral damage to healthy tissue, and minimal risk of scarring.
