Cryotherapy is a cosmetic procedure that can remove skin lesions and other non-harmful irregularities on the skin. It is a non-invasive treatment.
A jet of cryogenic liquids – liquefied gases – is pointed towards the area of the skin that needs to be removed. Usually, the lesion can be irradiated after just one treatment, but this can vary depending on the size of the targeted area. Procedures on the head and neck can take around 4-6 weeks to heal completely, while that on the legs and rest of the body can take a little longer. Some people experience a dark red mark forming on the area of the skin where the lesion has been removed, but this often disappears shortly after the treatment has been completed.
Although some patients feel small amounts of discomfort, this treatment is generally fast and hassle free. It is common to experience a slightly tingling or burning feeling immediately after Cryotherapy.
Cryotherapy is usually very successful after just one treatment, although it can take more than one session depending on the size and depth of the skin lesion.
Compared to having an operation, cryotherapy is a non-invasive treatment with very few side effects and a quick recovery period.
This can cost from around £140 per area.
