Cryotherapy FAQ's

Q. What is cryotherapy?

A. Cryotherapy is a process that rapidly freezes skin tissue to destroy it. CryoPen utilises controlled high-pressure Nitrous Oxide (N2O) directly to the lesion to freeze the interstitial fluid leading to Cryo-necrosis.
The use of Nitrous Oxide (N2O) and the precision of CryoPen allow us to remove unwanted lesions without damage to the surrounding healthy tissue.

Q. How long does it take for the lesions to clear?

A. 4 weeks
