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 so lovely and knowledgeable. She answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable. I had a great result with my chemical peel and am currently having some cryotherapy on a skin lesion that I’ve wanted removing for some time. Would highly recommend.

    I have had the pleasure of being a client with Sam at McNeely Skin & Body for a year now. I looked about for a while as it was when I first started having treatments. Sam is an amazing lady, extremely inviting, warming and made me feel like I could relax. We talked first of all about what my ideals were. Sam then explained my options, the differences in how things work and them agreed a plan to suit my needs. Sam left me feel confident and that I was in safe hands. I am more than satisfied each time I visit, I look forwards to going & leave with a spring in my step feeling super. Her work is accurate, professional and I would recommend Sam 100% to anyone - especially if they are new to skin/facial treatments and had lots of questions as I know they would be honestly & perfectly answered.
