Cryotherapy All you need to know.
What is Cryotherapy:
Cryotherapy is a treatment where extreme cold is applied to freeze and destroy abnormal tissue. To create this severe cold, we use a substance like liquid nitrogen.
Who is it for:
People who suffer from various skin conditions such as warts and skin tags.
Most people don’t need to do anything special to prepare for cryotherapy on the skin.
What To Expect During Treatment:
A special spray bottle or a cotton swab is used to put on the liquid nitrogen. It takes about 10 to 20 seconds to apply. The liquid nitrogen is so cold it stings like frostbite or feels like an ice cube stuck to your skin. As the skin thaws, it may feel hot or burning.
Post Treatment Care:
Starting the day after your procedure, wash the treated area gently with fragrance-free soap and water every day. Put Vaseline® or Aquaphor® on the treated area every day for 2 weeks. This will help the area heal and will keep it from crusting.
What To Expect After Treatment:
In most cases a blister will form where liquid nitrogen is applied. The location of the wart and the thickness of the skin around the wart will determine how long it takes for the blister to form. The blister may be either clear or filled with blood. Sometimes a crust or scab may form instead. After 4 to 7 days, the blister will break, dry up and fall off. The area may be sore.
