Frequently asked questions

What is CryoTherapy?

CryoTherapy is a procedure that uses extreme cold to destroy tissue.

 

How does it work?

The Freezpen emits a fine jet of nitrous oxide at -89°C, allowing your clinical practitioner to work with millimetre precision. Working in circular and criss-cross movements, the tiny cold blast destroys the affected tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid, forming ice shards and crystals that rupture the cell membrane, thereby destroying the cell.

 

Is the Freezpen treatment painful?

The accuracy of Freezpen ensures a stress-free treatment. Some sensation may be felt as the nitrous oxide gas reaches the bottom of the lesion, however this is minimal if anything. Post treatment, there may be residual stinging which will subside.

 

How long does the treatment take?

The duration of treatment depends on the type of skin lesion being treated, and the depth and breadth of skin defect in question. Generally, treatment is completed in as little as 5-10 minutes (meaning you could book in on your lunch break).

 

How safe is CryoTherapy?

CryoTherapy is a low risk procedure. Freezpen delivers the extreme cold gas accurately and directly to the affected area, and does not effect the healthy surrounding tissue. Freezpen is both CE and FDA registered.

 

Are there any side effects?

The area treated is frozen, killing the localized cells in that area causing them to shrivel and die. As a result, the treated area may appear darker over a few weeks, but will return to normal pigmented skin in around six weeks.
