About Our Cryotherapy Services
Medical cryotherapy is different from over-the-counter freezing sprays. Cryotherapy, or cryosurgery, is a medical procedure that employs freezing temperatures to treat various skin irregularities. Liquid nitrogen (not dry ice) is applied to the targeted area, rapidly freezing and destroying abnormal tissue. This non-invasive approach is versatile and effective for treating conditions such as warts, skin tags, actinic keratosis, and certain types of skin cancer.
Cryotherapy’s key advantage lies in its ability to selectively eliminate abnormal cells while preserving surrounding healthy tissue. By creating ice crystals within cells, cryotherapy induces cell death and eventual shedding of the treated area. This method is particularly effective for surface-level or well-defined irregularities, offering quick results and minimal discomfort. We use advanced cryogen canisters with a fine tip to avoid treating areas around the target as much as possible.
While temporary cold sensations and mild discomfort may occur, they subside quickly. After cryotherapy, a blister may form and eventually crust over before the treated tissue sheds. Proper wound care instructions are provided to promote optimal healing and reduce the risk of infection or scarring. Multiple sessions might be required based on the lesion’s nature and patient response, with regular follow-ups ensuring effective healing and addressing any concerns. Cryotherapy offers patients a reliable and safe solution.
