Cryotherapy, also known as cryosurgery, is a non-invasive method of treating skin problems by cooling tissues and cells. This safe and effective treatment is both quickly administered and well tolerated.
How Does Cryotherapy work?
Cryotherapy applies liquid nitrogen to the skin with a special cotton ball pen. These extremely low temperatures (-196 degrees Celsius) destroy localized cells by creating microcrystals inside the corresponding blood vessels, ultimately leading to the elimination of unwanted skin issues. While localized skin irritation does result, this inflammatory response to the treatment is temporary and will last approximately one week, after which the skin repairs itself naturally.
What is Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy treats several types of benign lesions (pre-cancerous conditions), as well as malignancies. Cryotherapy can cure:
Cheloids (hypertrophic scars)
Kosmesis Aesthetic Surgery Center provides you with the most advanced, state-of-the-art CryoPen XL machine – theCryoPen Cryosurgical System, the leading option in cryosurgery.
CryoPen uses linear refrigeration compression technology, avoiding the handling of hazardous cryogenic gases and liquids, as in the case of existing cryosurgical technologies. The high stability and precision of the cryotherapy tool significantly reduce the risk of burns.
With CryoPen, complications are minimal, while the complete absence of pain eliminates the need for local anesthesia.
Cryotherapy is a safe method with few complications, including skin color changes (hypopigmentation, hyperpigmentation) or scarring. Cryotherapy should also not be used by those suffering from some forms of cold intolerance, such as cryoglobulinemia, cold urticaria, Raynaud syndrome, and others.
