Cryotherapy

Get rid of those unsightly warts, skin tags and benign lesions with DermapenCryoTM

Dermapen CryoTM is an advanced cryotherapy innovation that offers many advantages over traditional spray can-type cryotherapy. Firstly, it delivers a nitrous oxide (N2O) jet that is much colder and at a higher pressure than traditional cryo sprays, making for an extremely fast and effective treatment. It is able to treat a 2mm lesion in just 10 seconds, and is able to go up to 5mm deep. This means it will save you money on repeat visits.

Dernapen CryoTM will only treat your lesion, and not the healthy surrounding tissue, because of its special applicator tips that can be selected for different sized lesions. This means that your treatment will involve minimal discomfort and few side effects. It also means that lesions on the face and the area around the eyes can be safely treated too.

Dermapen CryoTM treatments are available at Allure Laser Clinic. Your clinician will assess your skin and treatment area to recommend a treatment plan suitable for you.

 

What is Cryotherapy?

Cryotherapy (Cold surgery) is a highly effective and safe procedure that is used to freeze and destroy benign skin lesions. Its uses liquefied nitrous oxide to destroy tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid which forms ice shards and crystals that rupture the cell membrane, destroying the cell.

Treatment Method

First Freeze Cycle
The clinician will hold the applicator 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.

Thaw

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.
