About Cryotherapy

The CryoPen emits a fine jet of nitrous oxide under high pressure, which allows the clinician to work with millimetre precision. This destroys the tissue by freezing the intercellular fluid, forming ice shards and crystals which rapture the membrane, thereby destroying the cell. That means there will be no collateral damage to healthy tissue. It’s so incredibly accurate and practical.

Cosmetic procedures such as skin tags, millia and cherry angiomas are no longer being treated by many doctors on the NHS. With the CryoPen you can now have these treatments in the beauty salon.

  • In a matter of seconds you can have flawless skin
  • Removes unsightly skin tags, warts and age spots for that perfect finish
  • Minimally invasive

How it works

First cycle – freeze
The applicator us held as close as possible to the skin imperfection and moved quickly towards and away from it. This could be from 1 – 30 seconds, depending on the size and depth.

After the first freeze cycle, the tissue is allowed to thaw for about 30 seconds.

Second cycle – freeze
Now the second freeze cycle will begin. The tissue will freeze faster than during the first freezing cycle.

The CryoPen freezes at a rate of approximately 1mm per seconds.

1mm 5 sec
2mm 10 sec
3mm 15 sec

Frequently asked questions

Cryotherapy is relatively low risk. There are a few side effects that may occur as a result of a treatment, including:

  • Pigmentary changes (hypopigmentation and hpyerpigmentation) if this happens skin colour normally returns after a few month.
  • Nerve damage (particularly in areas where nerves lie close to the surface of the skin, on fingers, wrist, area behind the ear) Reports show that normal sensitivity returns after a few months.
  • Shards or frozen ice (minor shards of frozen ice may blow out, that will thaw on contact with healthy skin)
  • Hair follicle damage and permanent alopecia (especially when treating area on sites with coarse terminal hair).

Discuss any concerns you have with your clinician.

The duration of the treatment time will depend on the surface area and the thickness of the tissue being treated. Upon the clinical evaluation of the thickness of the area, the clinician will choose an application time from 1 to 30 seconds.
The cost of the treatment will depend on the clinic and the size of the area.  Make an appointment with your clinician to discuss costs and to access your area.
Cryotherapy is a relatively low-risk procedure. Cryopen  delivers N2O directly to the area, and not the healthy surrounding tissue. Cryopen is both CE and FDA registered.
There will be a pain sensation similar to a stinging nettle on the skin when the nitrous oxide reaches the bottom of the area. There might be a little residual stinging for a few minutes after treatment.

The area will be slightly itchy for about ten minutes. Occasionally a blister might form and persist for a few hours.

Repeated short freezing cycles of 3 to 6 seconds at two – week intervals are recommended if you have darker skin.
