Cryotherapy is a simple, safe solution to remove unsightly warts, skin tags, benign skin lesions and other skin imperfections and blemishes.
Dr Joanna Lovatt has dermatology training and is able to ensure that your blemish is suitable and safe to be removed by cryotherapy.
What is cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy, or ‘cold surgery’ is a highly effective and safe procedure that is used to freeze and destroy benign skin lesions. It uses liquefied nitrous oxide to destroy tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid, subsequently disrupting the cell membrane, destroying the cell.
The CryoPen™ X emits a fine jet of nitrous oxide under high pressure which allows Dr Lovatt to work with millimetre precision. This destroys the tissues by freezing the intercellular fluid which disrupts the cell membranes which destroys the cells and subsequently the blemish. No pre or post preparation of the skin or anaesthetic is needed and it is relatively pain free – you can expect to feel a stinging sensation.
CryoIQ can be used to treat a wide range of skin blemishes including:
Age and sun spots
