Cryotherapy is a procedure that uses extreme cold to destroy tissue. The process is called cryo-necrosis, tissue destruction by freezing. Cryotherapy requires no anesthesia and has less scarring than other techniques of skin removal with minimal post-op care. The treatment goes fast and can be integrated into daily practice. The applicator is held as close as possible to the skin imperfection and moved quickly towards and away from it. This could be from 1-30 seconds, depending on the size and depth. After the first freeze cycle. the tissue can thaw for about 30 seconds. Then, the second freeze cycle will begin. The tissue will freeze faster than during the first freezing cycle. Cautions about skin type and location are considered prior to decide on freeze times. We trained with MASCED.UK to recognise melonoma and skin cancer earlier.
