CryoPen is an advanced cryotherapy innovation that is a fast, effective and safe solution for the removal of skin imperfections such as warts, skin tags, verrucae, milia, cherry angiomas, scars, and resistant hyperpigmentation.
Among the benefits of CryoPen over other treatments are
Cryotherapy is the use of extreme cold used for the removal of unwanted skin imperfections in a controlled environment. CryoPen works via the emission of a fine jet of nitrous oxide – a chemical compound used in cryotherapy – under high pressure, which allows the treatment of lesions with millimetric precision. This means that only the intended area will be treated with cryotherapy, and there will be no collateral damage to healthy tissue.
The tissue on the treated area is destroyed by freezing the inter cellular fluid, forming ice shards and crystals which rupture the membrane, thereby destroying the cell. It is incredibly accurate, practical and fast, with procedures typically lasting between 5 and 30 seconds.
Only on rare occasions cryotherapy will leave any scar after the treatment, and pigment change is more common only with darker types of skin. When dealing with delicate areas like the skin surrounding the eyes, a repeat procedure may be required. This is the case also for deeper lesions requiring a more aggressive treatment, such as verrucas or warts, but in the vast majority of the cases cryotherapy sessions using CryoPen will result in the permanent removal of the treated areas.
