Harness the power of cold

With CryoPen®

CryoPen® is a state-of-the-art, hand-held cryotherapy device, precisely targeting and eradicating skin blemishes with intense cold. CryoPen® effectively removes moles, warts, skin tags, and is equally effective in the treatment of pigmentation, sun spots, and age spots.

CryoPen® is designed for close-up, detailed work, delivering refined, narrow blasts of cold nitrous oxide with a high degree of accuracy. The device’s narrow tip allows our medical nurse prescriber to work within a 1mm range, ensuring that the surrounding healthy tissue it not harmed by the jet of nitrous oxide.

Frequently Asked Questions

About CryoPen

  • How does Cryotherapy work?

    CryoPen® targets a fine jet of intense cold nitrous oxide to damage the tissue of the targeted blemish. When removing a mole, for example, the cold destroys the tissue of the mole itself, which will usually crust over and darken for a couple of weeks as new, healthy skin forms underneath. The crusts will drop off, leaving you with pink, healthy skin where the mole used to be. The treatment harnesses the power of intense but precisely targeted cold nitrous oxide to destroy unwanted tissue and stimulate the regrowth of clear skin.

  • Does CryoPen® treatment hurt?

    Our clients tell us they are aware of the cold as nitrous oxide contacts the skin, but that any pain or discomfort is minimal or non-existent. Our medical nurse prescriber will be with you the whole time to deliver the treatment and monitor your comfort level.

  • How long does CryoPen® take to work?

    This depends on the length and location of the freeze. A blister will typically develop on the treated area during the first 24 hours after treatment, lasting from 2 to 5 days. A scab usually forms, depending on how deep the treatment needed to go, which will fall off over time to reveal healthy skin. In general, healing takes 2 to 6 weeks in all.

  • How safe is CryoPen® treatment?

    Cryotherapy is widely considered to be a safe and highly effective treatment.

  • Will CryoPen® Treatment leave a scar?

    Of all the methods of removing skin lesions, CryoPen® leaves the least amount of scarring because it causes the least damage to the connective tissue. If a larger lesion has been removed there might be a faint mark, but it will be far less noticeable than the blemish itself. We will assess your skin and discuss your goals during your consultation, offering you personalised advice and information relevant to you and your skin concerns.
