    Why choose cryotherapy over other treatments?

    Choosing Cryopen over other treatments for benign skin lesions can bring numerous benefits. Here are several reasons why Cryopen stands out:

    • Precision: Cryopen uses nitrous oxide to accurately target the specific area of the skin that needs treatment. This high level of precision minimizes damage to the surrounding healthy skin and is particularly beneficial when treating lesions in delicate or highly visible areas.
    • Non-Invasive: Unlike surgical procedures, Cryopen treatment is non-invasive. There are no incisions, no need for stitches, and consequently a lower risk of infection.
    • Minimal Discomfort: Cryopen treatment generally causes minimal discomfort. There is usually no need for local anesthesia, making it a more convenient choice for many patients.
    • Quick and Convenient: Cryopen treatments are usually quick, often completed within minutes. This makes them highly convenient, particularly for those with busy schedules.
    • Fast Healing: Healing time after a Cryopen treatment is typically faster than after surgical procedures. The treated lesion will naturally scab over and eventually fall off, revealing healthy skin underneath.
    • Minimal Scarring: Due to the high precision and non-invasive nature of Cryopen treatments, there’s a significantly lower risk of scarring compared to surgical procedures.
    • Suitable for Most People: Cryopen can be used on most people, regardless of age or skin type, making it a versatile solution for a variety of benign skin lesions.

    In conclusion, Cryopen is a modern, efficient, and convenient choice for the treatment of skin lesions. However, it’s crucial to consult with a healthcare provider or a skin specialist to decide on the best treatment method for your specific needs. At Skin Cosmetics London, our experts are here to guide you through this process, offering professional advice tailored to your individual circumstances.

    Introduction

    Is cryotherapy with Cryopen safe?

    Yes, Cryopen is considered safe and is FDA approved. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for protecting public health by ensuring the safety, efficacy, and security of human and veterinary drugs, biological products, and medical devices. An FDA approval signifies that the product has undergone rigorous testing and has met stringent standards for safety and efficacy.

    Cryopen uses nitrous oxide, a safe and commonly used gas, to freeze and destroy the targeted tissue. The procedure is non-invasive and the device allows for a high degree of precision, which minimizes damage to surrounding healthy tissue. Furthermore, it’s suitable for most people, regardless of age or skin type.

    However, like any medical treatment, Cryopen may not be suitable for everyone and it does have potential side effects, although these are generally minor and temporary. These can include pain, redness, blistering, and discoloration in the treated area.

    It’s always advisable to consult with a healthcare provider or a skin specialist before undergoing any medical treatment. They can provide personalized advice based on your individual circumstances and health history. At Skin Cosmetics London, our experts are here to guide you and ensure the safest and most effective treatment for your skin.

    STEPS

    Treatment Step by Step

    Evaluation/ initial consultation

    The first step involves an evaluation by a healthcare provider. They will examine the lesion to ensure that it is indeed benign and that cryotherapy is the appropriate treatment method. They will also

    image

    Preparation

    Before the procedure, the healthcare provider may clean the area and apply a local anesthetic to numb the skin. However, because cryotherapy involves relatively minor discomfort, anesthesia isn’t always necessary.

    image

    Procedure

    The Cryopen uses nitrous oxide, which is extremely cold, to freeze and destroy the targeted tissue. The practitioner will aim the Cryopen at the lesion, precisely controlling the application to minimize damage to surrounding healthy tissue. The cold temperature causes the water in the cells of the lesion to freeze, which leads to destruction of the cells.

    Healing

    The frozen lesion will eventually thaw and will likely form a scab. Over time, the scab will naturally fall off, revealing new, healthy skin underneath. The healing process may take several weeks depending on the size and location of the lesion.

    image

    Aftercare/ subsequent sessions

    Depending on the type of lesion, it may require a number of sessions to remove it completely. This will be discussed with you during your initial consultation. The specific aftercare required will also be explained by the practitioner as well as being automatically emailed. A paper copy is available on request.

    Cryotherapy with Cryopen is generally a safe and effective procedure with few side effects. Possible side effects can include pain, redness, blistering, and discoloration in the treated area.

    Cryopen allows for a high degree of precision in treating lesions, which is particularly beneficial when dealing with lesions in cosmetically sensitive or functionally important areas. However, not all lesions are suitable for cryotherapy, and your healthcare provider will make this determination based on various factors including the size, type, and location of the lesion.

    The effectiveness of cryotherapy for benign lesion removal is generally high, but in some cases, more than one treatment may be necessary. It’s important to follow all aftercare instructions provided by the healthcare provider to ensure optimal healing and minimize any potential side effects.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is cryotherapy by cryopen?

    Cryopen is a cutting-edge medical device that employs cryotherapy, a method of using extreme cold, to treat various skin conditions. The device utilizes nitrous oxide, a safe and effective cryogenic fluid, to rapidly freeze and destroy unwanted skin cells at the lesion site. It is renowned for its precision, allowing for highly targeted treatment while leaving the surrounding healthy tissue unharmed.

    Cryopen is capable of treating a wide range of benign skin lesions including warts, skin tags, seborrheic keratosis, actinic keratosis, solar lentigo, cherry angioma, and many other skin irregularities. It’s non-invasive, typically causing minimal discomfort and requires no anesthetics. Furthermore, it typically offers a fast healing time, often within a few weeks, depending on the nature of the lesion.

    Given its precision, minimal side effects, and convenience, Cryopen represents a preferred choice for many patients seeking non-surgical solutions for their skin concerns. It’s considered safe and is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

    Cryopen can treat a wide range of benign skin lesions. These include:

    •  Warts: These are small, grainy skin growths that occur most often on fingers or hands. They’re caused by various strains of human papillomaviruses (HPVs).
    • Skin tags: These are small, soft, skin-coloured growths that hang off the skin and can appear on any part of the body.
    • Seborrheic keratosis: These are common, harmless, pigmented, scaly skin patches that range from light tan to brown or black.
    • Actinic keratosis: These are rough, scaly patches on the skin caused by years of sun exposure. They’re most commonly found on the face, lips, ears, back of the hands, forearms, scalp, or neck.
    • Solar lentigo: Also known as age spots or liver spots, these are small, darkened patches on your skin. They vary in size and usually appear on areas exposed to the sun.
    • Cherry angioma: These are small, bright red growths that stick out from the skin. They are composed of small blood vessels and can develop anywhere on the body.
    • Molluscum contagiosum: This is a skin infection caused by a virus, resulting in round, firm, painless bumps.
    • Age spots: These are flat, brown, gray, or black spots on the skin usually caused by sun exposure.
    • Milia: These are tiny white bumps that appear on the skin, usually in groups.

    Please note, it’s important to get any skin lesion evaluated by a healthcare provider to ensure it’s benign before proceeding with treatment. At Skin Cosmetics London, our team of experts are equipped to provide you with the correct diagnosis and the most effective treatment options for your skin lesions.

    The number of Cryopen treatments required for a skin lesion typically depends on the type, size, and location of the lesion.

    Many small, benign lesions such as skin tags, small warts, or age spots can often be effectively treated in just one session. Larger lesions, or those in more sensitive areas, might require multiple sessions to be effectively treated. This approach ensures the surrounding healthy skin is not damaged and promotes better healing.

    Moreover, some types of lesions are more stubborn than others. For example, warts and molluscum contagiosum, caused by viruses, might require several treatments to completely remove, given their nature.

    Your healthcare provider will give you an estimate on the number of treatments required during your consultation. In every case, the goal of Skin Cosmetics London is to provide effective treatment while prioritizing the health and safety of your skin. It’s important to have realistic expectations and understand that multiple treatments may sometimes be necessary to achieve the desired results.

    Choosing Cryopen over other treatment methods for skin lesions comes with several distinct advantages:

    • Precision: Cryopen uses nitrous oxide to accurately target the specific area of the skin that needs treatment. This high level of precision minimizes damage to the surrounding healthy skin and is particularly beneficial when treating lesions in delicate or highly visible areas.
    • Non-Invasive: Unlike surgical procedures, Cryopen treatment is non-invasive. There are no incisions, no need for stitches, and consequently a lower risk of infection and scarring.
    • Minimal Discomfort: Cryopen treatment generally causes minimal discomfort. There is usually no need for local anesthesia, making it a more convenient choice for many patients.
    • Quick and Convenient: Cryopen treatments are usually quick, often completed within minutes. This makes them highly convenient, particularly for those with busy schedules.
    • Fast Healing: Healing time after a Cryopen treatment is typically faster than after surgical procedures. The treated lesion will naturally scab over and eventually fall off, revealing healthy skin underneath.
    • Minimal Scarring: Due to the high precision and non-invasive nature of Cryopen treatments, there’s a significantly lower risk of scarring compared to surgical procedures.
    • Suitable for Most People: Cryopen can be used on most people, regardless of age or skin type, making it a versatile solution for a variety of benign skin lesions.

    Cryopen is especially beneficial for those seeking a quick, effective, and minimally invasive solution to treat skin lesions. While other treatments can certainly be effective, the Cryopen offers a high degree of precision and convenience, and typically results in excellent cosmetic outcomes with minimal downtime. As always, it’s essential to consult with a healthcare provider to determine the best treatment method for your specific needs. At Skin Cosmetics London, our experts are here to guide you through this process, offering professional advice tailored to your individual circumstances.

    The timeline to see the full results of a Cryopen treatment can vary based on the type, size, and location of the lesion, as well as individual healing factors. Generally, the treated skin lesion will turn darker immediately after the procedure and a scab will form over the area within a few days.

    The scab will typically fall off naturally within 1 to 2 weeks for smaller lesions, and potentially longer for larger ones, revealing new, healthy skin underneath. Complete healing of the skin, including the resolution of any residual redness, may take a few more weeks.

    Although Cryopen can provide immediate visible changes to the treated lesion, it’s important to remember that the underlying healing process continues for some time afterwards. The full cosmetic outcome of the treatment may not be apparent until a few weeks after the procedure.

    At Skin Cosmetics London, our healthcare providers will give you an estimate on the healing process and what to expect after your Cryopen treatment, and they will provide instructions on how to care for the treated area to promote healing and achieve the best possible results. It’s important to follow these post-treatment care instructions closely.
