Quick solution to treat simple skin lesions using cryotherapy
Cryotherapy or cryosurgery is a highly safe and effective procedure that is used to freeze and destroy benign skin lesions. The clinic uses Cryopen to perform this treatment.
It uses liquid nitrous oxide to destroy the tissue by freezing the cell fluid which in turn forms ice shards that rupture the cell membrane and in turn destroying the cell and lesion. Cryopen is precise, avoiding healthy surrounding tissue.
Cryotherapy is beneficial as it is quicker than other treatments as can be treated in minutes. It requires no anaesthetic and has minimal to no scarring. There are no limitations on activities ( except protecting the area from damage) and patients can return to normal activities after treatment(s).
The NHS does not routinely fund removal of benign skin lesions so this is the ideal service to use and will be provided by Dr Kara.
