What is Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy is a skin treatment that uses freezing temperatures to remove abnormal tissue, such as skin tags or warts. Also known as cryoablation, the treatment involves applying liquid nitrogen to the skin’s surface and freezing the targeted skin lesion. This kills the skin in the treatment area, and in the days following treatment, the skin lesion will fall off.

What is the Cryotherapy Treatment Like?
During a cryotherapy treatment, a handheld device will be used to apply liquid nitrogen to the targeted treatment area. This will immediately freeze the skin, which may cause some discomfort, although it is generally well-tolerated by patients. It takes only a few minutes to perform cryotherapy.
Is There Any Downtime After Cryotherapy Treatments?
There is no downtime or recovery period following cryotherapy treatments. You can return to work and other daily activities immediately following your treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from Cryotherapy?
In the days following treatment,the treatment area will begin to scab over. Within a few weeks, the scab will fall off and the skin lesion will be gone. In some cases, patients may require additional cryotherapy treatments if the first session is unsuccessful in completely removing the skin lesion. However, most patients can expect complete removal in a single treatment.
