What is Cryo?

Cryotherapy is the controlled and safe removal of unwanted tissue by the precise application of extreme cold. Using a special medical device called ‘CryoPen’, we are able to precisely deliver an ultra-cold jet of high-pressure N₂O directly onto skin lesions without damaging the delicate skin around.

Where is Cryotherapy used?

Cryotherapy can be used on all parts of the body including the face. A range of lesions can be treated which include:-
*Skin Tags
*Benign Moles
*Solar Lentigines (Age/Sun spots, Liver Spots, harmless patch of darkened skin)
*Cherry Angioma
*Seborrgeic Keratosis (Common noncancerous (benign) skin growth. Waxy or scaly raised lesions)

What is used for Cryotherapy?

Nitrious oxide (N₂O).

How does it work?

The applicator is held as close as possible to the skin imperfection and moved quickly towards and away from it. It could be from 1 to 30 seconds depending on the size and depth. After the first freeze cycle the tissue can thaw for about 30 seconds and then the second freeze cycle can begin. The tissue will freeze faster than during the first cycle.

Is the treatment/procedure painful?

There is a little discomfort associated with cryotherapy. An intense cold is felt initially and then a little tenderness ( similar to sunburn) can sometimes be felt for the hour following treatment.

When will I see results?

Results maybe seen within a couple of weeks. The area treated may go through a series of stages prior to disappearing such as blistering, change in colour, scabbing and reduction in size. A review will be provided at two weeks to check the progress of the area treated and may possibly treated again if necessary.

How long will it last?

For most lesions, cryotherapy is permanent. Some lesions are harder to remove than others.

Are there any side effects?

You may experience slight tenderness, swelling and redness following this procedure.

How long does the treatment/procedure take?

From 3 minutes depending on the size and quantity of the lesions being treated.

Please note that a consultation with your GP maybe requested by Sam prior to treatment.

    Sam is the absolute best, a complete artist. I’ve used Sam for Botox and Lip Fillers, she’s got meticulous attention to detail and ensures a completely natural look, enhancing your features to make you feel and look like a better version of yourself. She’s also the nicest person, I can’t recommend enough.

    I've had two sessions now with Sam, she is amazing!! I have many insecurities with my skin but she always makes me feel comfortable to express to her. She works gently on the skin and makes sure I'm relaxed and comfy. She always provides the best service and is lovely to have a chat with, which makes it even more worthwhile that she's so bubbly whilst doing the treatments. I trust her wholeheartedly with her skincare advice and I'm excited to see how my skin looks after all this is done 🤞🏽
