How does Cryotherapy work?

 

Discover Cryotherapy: Your Path to Flawless Skin

Cryotherapy, the cutting-edge solution for skin imperfections, has revolutionized the way we address skin blemishes. With its remarkable speed, safety, and effectiveness, you can bid farewell to those imperfections in no time. In fact, most procedures take just 5 to 30 seconds, making it a swift and hassle-free experience.

How Cryotherapy Transforms Your Skin

Our advanced Cryotherapy technique involves the precise application of a high-pressure jet of Nitrous Oxide. This remarkable method allows us to target imperfections with millimeter precision. By freezing the inter-cellular fluid, it creates ice shards and crystals that disrupt the cell membrane, effectively eliminating the tissue. The beauty of this process is that it causes no harm to the surrounding healthy tissue. The accuracy and practicality of Cryotherapy are truly impressive.

Say Goodbye to Unwanted Skin Tags, Milia, and Cherry Angiomas

Many doctors no longer offer cosmetic procedures for skin tags, milia, and cherry angiomas through the NHS. But with Cryotherapy, these treatments are readily available to you. Laura will position the applicator as close as possible to the imperfection, swiftly moving it towards and away from the target. The duration varies from 1 to 30 seconds, depending on the size and depth of the imperfection.

Benefits of Cryotherapy

  • Effortlessly removes skin tags and age spots, leaving you with a flawless complexion.
  • Minimally invasive, ensuring a comfortable and pain-free experience.
  • Rapid treatment times, allowing you to return to your daily activities without delay.

What to expect from the treatment?

Potential Side Effects

Cryotherapy involves freezing the treated area to eliminate localised cells, causing them to wither and eventually perish. It's normal for the treated area to darken over a few weeks. However, rest assured that this darkened skin will gradually return to its natural pigmentation in about six weeks.

Treatment Duration

The duration of Cryotherapy treatments varies depending on the size and thickness of the tissue being treated. Laura will determine the optimal application time, which can range from 1 to 30 seconds, based on a clinical evaluation of the treatment area.

Cost of Treatment

The cost of Cryotherapy treatment is influenced by the size of the targeted area. To get a precise cost estimate and assess your specific needs, we recommend scheduling a consultation appointment.

Safety of Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy is a relatively safe and low-risk procedure. It exclusively targets the affected area with freezing, leaving healthy surrounding tissue unharmed. Rest assured, our Cryotherapy device is both CE and FDA registered, meeting stringent safety standards.

Discomfort During Treatment

While undergoing Cryotherapy, you may experience a sensation akin to a stinging nettle as the Nitrous Oxide reaches the base of the area. It's common to feel some residual stinging for a few minutes after the treatment, which is entirely normal and manageable.

Healing Duration

The healing process following Cryotherapy can take up to four weeks, depending on aftercare adherence and the advice provided by your nurse practitioner. In some cases, particularly with larger skin tags, patients may require a second treatment session to achieve the best results. It's important to avoid scratching the treated area to prevent tissue damage and minimize the risk of infection.

Aftercare

  • Avoid Direct Sun Exposure: Protect your skin from direct sunlight immediately after treatment. UV rays can be harsh on the skin, so apply sunscreen if you need to be outdoors.
  • Normal Activity Resumption: There is no downtime associated with Cryotherapy, which means you can typically return to your regular activities right away. Avoid strenuous exercise or activities that may cause excessive sweating for the first day.
  • Be Gentle: Treat the treated area gently, avoiding excessive touching or scrubbing. Your skin may be sensitive during the initial recovery phase.
  • Moisturise: Using a gentle, hydrating moisturiser can help keep your skin moisturised and minimise any dryness that may occur as your skin heals.
  • Avoid Harsh Products: Refrain from using harsh skincare products, such as retinoids or strong exfoliants, for a few days following treatment to prevent irritation.
  • Healing Process: Over the days following your Cryotherapy treatment, you may notice some redness, swelling, or the formation of small scabs or blisters. These are normal parts of the healing process as your skin naturally sheds the treated tissue.

Contradictions

Cryotherapy is a safe and effective procedure for most people, but it may not be suitable for everyone. It's not recommended for those with uncontrolled diabetes, autoimmune disorders, Raynaud's disease, cold allergies, or a history of frostbite. Pregnant individuals and those with open wounds, infections, or skin issues at the treatment site should also avoid it. If you have concerns or underlying medical conditions, consult a healthcare professional to determine if Cryotherapy is safe for you. Your safety and well-being are our top priorities.
