Is cryotherapy safe? – Ask the Expert

If you’re someone who suffers with annoying skin marks and lesions such as skin tags, warts, verrucas, age spots, actinic keratosis, milia, cherry angiomas and sun-damage; you might be researching and considering non-surgical-yet-effective and safe solutions for your condition.

Here at Skin Perfection, my team of skin experts and I are constantly researching state-of-the-art, innovative and non-invasive treatments and techniques for our patients and we are passionate about ensuring that all our procedures are safe and highly-effective, ensuring our patients feel confident and obtain the best results possible.

CryoPen™ is a cryotherapy (freezing) pen-like device with micro-technology which enables the removal of small to medium skin marks and lesions with high precision. It works by emitting nitrous oxide which causes the cells to reach temperatures of at least -80 degrees, causing ice crystals to form. These ice crystals break the cell membrane and destroy the cell’s organelles and protein matrixes. Water then rushes into the surrounding area, causing blistering and disruption of the local blood supply. This is an almost instant reaction, making the treatment extremely quick and painless. What’s more, only the lesion targeted is frozen, avoiding damage of healthy, surrounding tissues.

The safety of Cryotherapy has long been acknowledged and proven and the risks of using the CryoPen™ for the removal of skin abnormalities is lower than many other treatment methods. What’s more, the CryoPen is both CE and FDA approved, which means you can be safe in the knowledge that the equipment has been rigorously tested and proven for its safety and efficacy. This is why I chose this cryotherapy device for our clinic, alongside fantastic results.

To maintain the highest level of care to our patients, before any treatment here at Skin Perfection, we will always invite you to a no obligation consultation so that we can assess your skin concern, check your medical history and decide on the best possible treatment for your needs. Only then will we proceed with the chosen treatment most appropriate and effective for you.

Our dedication to patient safety is always at the forefront of everything we do and this is probably why we are one of the busiest and most respected cosmetic skin clinics in the UK.
