What is Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy (‘cold surgery’) is a highly effective and safe procedure that is used to freeze and destroy benign skin lesions. It uses special liquefied jet to destroy tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid which forms ice shards and crystals that rupture the cell membrane, destroying the cell.
The three stages of treatment
First Freeze Cycle
An applicator will be placed as close as possible to the lesion, and move it quickly towards and away from it. Depending on the lesion size and depth, the treatment could be 1 to 30 seconds.
After the first freezing cycle, the tissue will be allowed to thaw for about 30 seconds.
Second Freeze Cycle
The second freeze cycle will start. The tissue will freeze faster than during the first freezing cycle.
