A quick, effective way to remove skin imperfections
The Cryopen treatment is the ideal way to remove small skin imperfections, such as skin tags, verrucae, age spots, millia and warts. The quick treatment is precise and accurate with no damage to any surrounding tissue.
What is the Cryopen used for?
How does it work?
The Cryopen emits nitrous oxide in a fine jet under high pressure which freezes the unwanted skin tag/solar keratosis and causes destruction to the blood supply. The inflammation caused by the freezing in the areas promotes new skin growth underneath the area treated so there is no or only minimal scarring from this process. The treatment is extremely precise and very quick lasting around 5 – 25 seconds.
What is involved during the treatment?
Your Aesthetic Therapist will first perform an in-depth consultation and your medical history will be taken, to ensure that there are no reasons why you shouldn’t have the treatment, and you will be asked to sign a consent form at this time which means that you have understood the potential benefits and risks associated.
Once the treatment has been explained to you, and all your questions have been answered your aesthetician will begin treating your skin tags using the Cryopen. You are free to return to your normal activities as soon as you leave the clinic.
Does it hurt?
The Cryopen is so precise it avoids healthy tissue, so discomfort is minimal.
What is the skin appearance after the treatment?
The skin tag/solar keratosis will usually change colour and fall off after a few days. A very small area around the surrounding skin may change colour and become slightly red for a week. There is no need to apply any creams or lotions and there is no need to keep it covered.
When will I see results?
The skin tag/solar keratosis will usually change colour and fall off after a few days.
How many treatments will I need?
As the Cryopen is so precise you will see results immediately and return treatments are minimal, depending on the number and type of lesions you want removed.
