Cryotherapy Treatments

CryoPen™ is an advanced and innovative treatment that uses extreme cold, (or ‘cryotherapy’), to painlessly and safely remove benign, unwanted and superficial lesions on the surface of the skin, including: warts, skin tags, verrucae, milia, cherry angiomas, scars, and resistant hyperpigmentation.

This type of Cryotherapy has four main benefits over other treatments:

CryoPen therapy takes less time than other treatments

No anaesthesia is required and this treatment is virtually painless

CryoPen is one of the least invasive lesion treatments in the market

CryoPen is used in the treatment of almost all benign skin lesions

Frequently asked questions

Your cryotherapy treatment at North West Aesthetics will cost from £50 per session.

CryoPen therapy is a medical procedure that involves the application of nitrous oxide gas ejected under high pressure on to the skin. The gas is very cold which helps to freeze and destroy any benign lesions.

Over a course of 1 or 2 2-minute treatments, you can expect full removal of your benign lesion.

Each treatment session with the CryoPen is around just 2 minutes long. The full appointment, including your consultation, should take just 15 minutes.

You will see benefits after just one treatment, but to see more long-term benefits, sometimes two treatments are required.

Absolutely no downtime or recovery is necessary as this is a very gentle treatment.

In the case of all lesions, over the course of 24 hours post treatment the area will go darker and develop a crust on the surface; it is not recommended to pick this off, and when it naturally falls away, you will see new skin which is a shiny pink colour. This is not scarring, and will re-pigment over the following weeks. While there is very little aftercare required or side effects expected from this treatment, there are a few contraindications that may occasionally occur, including blistering.

CryoPen is suitable for most lesions, but it is important to have a consultation before treatment so that the lesion can be fully assessed to ensure it is benign.
