Certain skin growths and impurities might not be resolved easily with a beauty product or other skincare line. Many customers haven’t received immediate results as they would with interventional solutions, like cryotherapy. This procedure is also a minimally invasive procedure with less discomfort and risks, especially with the cutting-edge technology from CryoPen™.
Skin Health Medi-Spa offers cryotherapy treatment for patients seeking to remove growths and impurities on their skin. A cryotherapy session with CryoPen™ makes the removal of warts, keloids, and other skin concerns more comfortable and less risky. You may learn more about this therapy by scheduling a consultation with us.
What is Cryotherapy
Cryotherapy, also called cryoablation, is the process of removing growths and abnormal tissue using extreme cold, destroying the cells with a severe cold. Some of the gasses used in this are:
- liquid nitrogen
- liquid nitrous oxide
- argon gas
Doctors and patients usually prefer this over having an open surgery because it has lower chances of causing damage to healthy tissues near the treatment area, a crucial factor when considering the best procedure for cancer.
- Less pain
- Less bleeding
- Fewer risks
It’s a minimally invasive solution, requiring less recovery time, discomfort, and health risks. Here are some of the skin conditions and growths it can remove:
- Dark spots
- Skin tags
- Actinic keratosis
- Solar lentigo
- Seborrheic keratosis
- Viral wart
- Molluscum contagiosum
- Dermatofibroma, and others
Those are some of the skin conditions that your cryotherapy session may address, but it’s also used in other practices for a broad range of medical conditions, like:
- Chronic pain
- Bone cancer
- Liver cancer and other types of abnormal cell growth

What is CryoPen™?
Skin Health Medi-Spa uses advanced equipment for its skin and beauty solutions, performed by board-certified dermatologists and highly-trained beauticians. We use a cutting-edge technology called CryoPen™ when conducting this cosmetic solution.
- No harmful gasses
- Precise procedure
- Minimal scarring
The CryoPen™ is a device for performing cryotherapy sessions that has a cooling technology without the need to use dangerous freezing agents, thanks to its linear compression. Here’s what this device may treat:
- Actinic keratoses
- Warts/plantar warts
- Skin tags
- Seborrheic keratoses
- Non-recurrent basal cell, and more
This device also allows more precision with its pen-point mechanism and reduces the risks of serious frostbite or burn development. Doctors also won’t need to apply anesthetic on patients, and the results involve minimal scarring.
FAQs About Cryotherapy with CryoPen™
Q: Will the procedure with CryoPen™ hurt?
A: Each patient reacts differently to therapy involving CryoPen™, but you may expect slight discomfort when treated with this device, like many solutions for removing lesions. The experience is similar to having a pen pressing against the skin, but this should last for only a few minutes.
Q: Does CryoPen™ produce permanent results?
A: Yes, the lesions on the skin treated with CryoPen™ will be removed permanently, except in more sensitive treatment areas, like the eyes. Lesions on the eye areas are harder to remove because of the delicate location. Because of this, doctors usually suggest repeated treatment to keep healthy tissues from becoming damaged.
Q: What lessons can’t be treated with CryoPen™?
A: Recurring basal cell carcinomas and melanomas are some of the skin lesions that shouldn’t be treated with CryoPen™. Basal cell carcinoma usually spreads to closer lymph nodes, so patients might need more surgery if it returns. Melanoma spreads through the blood, local areas, and the lymphatic system. This growth might become more serious if a part of it becomes undetected.
