Cryotherapy is a tried and tested technique for removing skin growths such as skin tags and warts. The process is easy, comfortable and over in a matter of minutes. After the treatment, your warts, skin tags or other lesions will scab over and fall off within one to two weeks.
- An effective & safe treatment to freeze off unsightly skin tags, warts & other skin lesions
- Low risks of side effects
- Minimal recovery time
During your cryotherapy treatment, we will apply liquid nitrogen to your skin tag using a special spray gun. You may feel a few seconds of discomfort but not enough to require a local anaesthetic.
The frozen skin of the lesion will turn white before taking one to two minutes to thaw to normal skin temperature. Depending on the size and thickness of the lesion, we may need to repeat the process once your skin has thawed out.
The few days after your cryotherapy treatment, a scab will form over your skin lesion. This will typically take between one to two weeks to fall off, but it can take longer depending on the type, severity, and size. All being well, the lesion will have gone and your skin will look normal. However, sometimes people do need a second treatment or even follow-up treatments at regular intervals.
During your initial consultation and following your treatment, we’ll be able to give you a better idea of what to expect in your individual case.
