HOW DOES CRYOPEN TREATMENT WORK?
CryoPen treatment is based on cryotherapy technology (cryo means extremely cold). A targeted skin lesion is treated with a high-pressure spray of nitrous oxide which provides this cold energy. The cold is applied with millimeters accuracy, and it eliminates the targeted skin lesion, but it doesn’t harm the surrounding healthy skin.
The tip of the CryoPen applicator reaches a temperature of -89°C before it is applied to the skin. This high drop in temperature of the nitrous oxide thermally shocks the lesion, crystalizes the fluid found in it, and turns its cells into ice shards. Eventually, the targeted skin lesion gets eliminated because its cells’ membrane ruptures.
This extreme cold penetrates the targeted skin lesions at 1mm per 5 seconds. Therefore a 2mm lesion, for example is treated just for 10 seconds.
CryoPen applicators can have different sizes and various nitrous oxide cartridge capacities. Therefore this treatment can address smaller and bigger skin lesions.
WHAT DOES CRYOPEN TREATMENT TARGET?
CryoPen procedure is suitable for addressing benign lesions on the superficial layer of the skin. More complicated lesions are first checked by a doctor before they can be treated with this procedure.
This treatment can be used on different body areas to address:
- Skin tags
- Cherry angioma or red blisters
- Warts or viral verrucae
- Plantar warts
- Age or liver spots
- Milia or small, white bumps
- Water warts or contagiosum
- Sun spots or solar lentigo
- Other kinds of pigmentation
- Moles and birthmarks or popular nevi
- Condyloma or genital and anal warts
- Seborrheic warts or painless rough and raised lesions.
CryoPen treatment is safe for all patients, including children and young adults, of good general health.
WHY IS CRYOPEN TREATMENT BENEFICIAL?
One of the biggest advantages of this procedure is that it is an effective alternative to some more invasive procedures for skin lesions removal. It is safe and fast and achieves brilliant results.
The effectiveness of CryoPen treatment lies in its controlled and precise application. It treats only the skin lesion that needs to be removed and doesn’t damage the surrounding tissue. The tip of the CryoPen applicator is so precise that it can address lesions from 1 to 10 mm in size.
This procedure is minimally uncomfortable, and since it is quickly over it doesn’t require any anesthesia. It can be safely performed at any time, even in the summer. It case the patient has this treatment in summer, he/she just needs to put a high SPF to keep the skin protected.
Since this treatment is non-invasive, it doesn’t need stitches or sutures.
After the treated skin lesion has completely healed, the patient is left with clear and flawless skin – all thanks to the CryoPen procedure.
