What is Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy is a highly effective treatment for a broad range of skin lesions and conditions. Cryotherapy treatments involve spraying the affected area of the skin with liquid nitrogen to precisely target and destroy unwanted tissue. In the weeks following your appointment, the treated area will form a scab. That scab will naturally peel off, leaving your skin free of the unwanted lesion—and the scarring generally associated with lesion removal. Cryotherapy is a powerful, non-invasive, non-surgical treatment to address actinic keratosis, seborrheic keratosis, viral warts, and skin tags.
How Much Does Cryotherapy Cost?
The cost of cryotherapy treatment will vary depending on your health insurance plan and the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results. For a more accurate cost estimate of your cryotherapy treatment, we encourage you to come into our office for a private consultation to discuss and evaluate your specific questions and needs.
What Are The Benefits Of Cryotherapy?
There are many benefits to cryotherapy treatment, including:
- Effective, long-lasting removal of unwanted lesions, including skin tags
- Non-surgical, no cutting
- No scarring
- No anesthesia
- Minimal recovery period
- May treat actinic keratosis, seborrheic keratosis, viral warts, skin tags, and more
What Can I Expect During My Cryotherapy Treatment?
Your cryotherapy treatment will be performed by a highly skilled medical provider in our comfortable, state-of-the-art facility. Your treatment will begin with an assessment of your skin lesions. Following the assessment, your provider will then apply liquid nitrogen to the target area until a small, icy layer has formed over the skin. Once treated, the area will begin to scab as the healing process begins. It may take up to four cryotherapy treatments to achieve your desired results.
