CRYOPEN

CRYOPEN

CryoPen is a medical procedure which involves the application of nitrous oxide gas under high pressure to the skin where the unwanted lesions are frozen and destroyed. The tip of the Cryopen may reach as low as -89oC although the aim is to create a thermal shock to the tissue which involves a rapid drop of temperature. This has the effect of crystallising the contents of the body cells leading to destruction of the skin lesion, such as moles and spots.
The duration of the treatment is dependent on the size and nature of the lesion, but generally each lesion just takes a matter of seconds.
No anaesthesia is required and it is painless.
