You might think that laser skin clinics only offer laser solutions for skin conditions, but that's not the case. Cryotherapy is an example of one of the many non-laser treatments on offer. By using a cryo pen to apply extremely cold nitrous oxide gas to the skin, dead and diseased skin tissue is removed almost effortlessly. Fast and effective, this chilly tool is surprisingly painless.Ultra Cold, Ultra Effective

With its pinpoint accuracy, the cryo pen provides much more comfort than traditional liquid nitrogen therapy, and with even better results for the skin. The longer the mist is sprayed onto a lesion, the deeper the nitrous oxide gas goes and the better the penetration to dead skin. Fast and easy to use, it is now even more effective than previous cryotherapy. This is because the modern Dermapenâ„¢, as used in most laser clinics, does not directly touch the lesion, thereby improving the comfort, healing and precision of this treatment.Pain-Free with Minor Side Effects

Cryotherapy offered in a laser skin clinic is so effective that the treatment can be performed close to the eyes and other sensitive areas. Any minor blistering, scabbing or darkening of the lesion that appears straight after treatment will clear very quickly, within one to two weeks.
So, what exactly can it be used to heal?
Various Lesions, One Solution
Cryotherapy's impressive abilities are witnessed in its ability to treat a wide variety of lesions. These include:
â€¢ Benign moles
â€¢ Seborrhoeic Keratoses (â€˜senile warts')
â€¢ Cherry Angiomas
â€¢ Actinic Keratoses
â€¢ Skin tags
â€¢ Sebaceous Hyperplasia
â€¢ And more
We'll consider a couple of examples to demonstrate how laser skin clinics use this treatment in practice.
Removing the wart at the base is simple and straightforward by freezing it off quickly and pain-free. However, warts are the result of a virus that has penetrated the top layer of skin. Luckily, cryotherapy goes deeper, killing the virus itself. This secret ability of the cryo pen is how the growth of warts of the same virus strain is prevented in the future, making it an effective skin clinic treatment solution for warts.
Although they pose no real health problem, skin tags are generally considered unsightly and most people would rather have them removed. Using cryotherapy, they are thoroughly frozen at the base with nitrous oxide, leaving the tag to first blister and then very simply drop off after only a few days. This process doesn't open yourself up to skin tags returning either, so patients have peace of mind knowing that with cryotherapy, this is a long term solution.
