Cryotherapy really means cold therapy and is a technique that involves emitting a fine jet of Nitrous Oxide under high pressure at very low temperatures to remove skin imperfections. The end result is your skin is much healthier looking.
Cryotherapy Is Ideal For:
How It Works
It emits a fine jet of Nitrous Oxide under high pressure, which allows the clinician to work with millimetre precision. This destroys the tissue by
freezing the intracellular fluid, forming ice shards and crystals which rupture the membrane, thereby destroying the cell. That means there will be no collateral damage to healthy tissue. It’s so incredibly accurate and practical.
Cosmetic procedures such as skin tags, milia and cherry angiomas are no longer being treated by many doctors on the NHS. With Cryotherapy you can now have these treatments here.
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.
• Removes unsightly skin tags and age spots for that perfect finish
• Minimally invasive
Are there any side effects?
The area treated is frozen by Cryotherapy. This kills the localised cells in the area which cause them to shrivel and die. The treated area may go darker over a few weeks, but will return to normal pigmented skin in about 6 weeks.
How long are Cryotherapy treatments?
The duration of the treatment time will depend on the surface area and the thickness of the tissue
being treated. Upon the clinical evaluation of the depth of the area, the clinician will choose an application time from 1 to 30 seconds.
How much will the treatment cost?
The cost of treatment will depend on the clinic and the size of the area. Make an appointment with Beaulaser and we will discuss costs and assess your area.
How safe is Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy is a relatively low-risk procedure. It delivers a freeze directly to the area, and not the healthy surrounding tissue. The Cryotherapy device is both CE and FDA registered.
Is the treatment painful?
There will be a pain sensation similar to a stinging nettle on the skin when the Nitrous Oxide reaches the bottom of the area. There might be a little residual stinging for a few minutes after treatment, this is normal.
