Cryopen is a state of the art technology that uses extreme cold or cryotherapy to safely and painlessly treat superficial harmless skin lesions such as skin tags, warts, veruccas, age spots and sun spots. Skyn Doctor clinic Huddersfield is delighted to have acquired this technology in response to popular demand to treat harmless skin lesions in a safe, effective manner.
Cryopen has 4 main benefits over other traditional methods used for minor surgery:
– It requires no anaesthesia and is largely painless
– Crypen takes far less time, with treatment sessions lasting less than 2 minutes
– It is the least invasive method on the market for minor surgery
– There is no scarring and it can be used to treat virtually all skin lesions
How does it work?
Cryopen uses extreme cold to destroy tissues. The process is called cryo-necrosis, tissue destruction by freezing. During the procedure the pen is held close to the skin and application of nitrous gas oxide gas is ejected under high pressure. During the application, the tip of the cryopen can reach upto -89C. This has the effect of crystallising the fluid content of the targeted cells, resulting in the destruction of the skin lesions as the membrane surrounding the treated cells is destroyed and ruptured.
How long will the results last?
In the vats majority of skin lesions, cryotherapy is a permanent removal. Some deeper skin lesions can be difficult to treat and may require a further treatment. Our doctor will guide you on how many treatment cycles you can expect during the initial consultation
What types of skin conditions can be treated using the Cryopen?
Skin tags, warts, age spots, verruca’s, milia, cherry angiomas and other benign skin perfections.
