Cryotherapy is a fast, effective safe and new solution for the removal of skin imperfections. The Cryotherapy device is both CE and FDA registered.
How Does it Work?
It emits a fine jet of Nitrous Oxide under high pressure which allows the clinician to work with millimetre precision. This destroys the tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid, forming ice shards and crystals which rupture the membrane, thereby destroying the cell. That means there will be no collateral damage to healthy tissue. It’s so incredibly accurate.
What Can be Treated?
Cryotherapy offers the ideal treatment for:
Does it Hurt?
There will be a pain sensation similar to a stinging nettle on the skin when the Nitrous Oxide reaches the bottom of the area. There might be a little residual stinging for a few minutes after the treatment, this is normal.
During and After Treatment
After an initial consultation to ascertain suitability for the treatment, the applicator is held as close as possible to the skin imperfection and moved quickly towards and away from it. This could be from 1-30 seconds, depending on the size and depth. Cryotherapy is a relatively low-risk procedure. It delivers a freeze directly to the area, and not the healthy surrounding tissue. The treated area may go darker over a few weeks, but will return to normal pigmented skin in about 6 weeks.
