Cryotherapy is a safe and relatively painlessly method of removing small skin tags, warts and verruca’s
After an initial consultation with the doctor, if cryotherapy is thought appropriate, liquid nitrogen will be applied the area for a few seconds to freeze and destroy the affected skin cells. After treatment, a blister will form, followed by a scab, which will fall off 7-10 days later.
A session of cryotherapy usually takes 5-15 minutes, large lesions may need to be treated a few times before they clear up completely.
