Cryopen Treatment Wimbledon, London

What is Cryotherapy and what does it treat?

CryoPen™ is an advanced cryotherapy innovation that is a fast, effective, safe and new solution for removal of skin imperfections. Procedures typically last from 5 to 25 seconds, so you can be in and out of the salon quickly.

The CryoPen™ emits a fine jet of nitrous oxide under high pressure, which allows the clinician to work with millimetre precision. This destroys the tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid, forming ice shards and crystals which rupture the membrane, thereby destroying the cell. That means there will be no damage to healthy tissue surrounding the problem. It’s so incredibly accurate and practical, Cosmetic procedures such as skin tags, milia and cherry angiomas are no longer being treated by many doctors on the NHS. With the CryoPen™ you can now have these treatments in the beauty salon.

Cryopen skin perfector Q&A's

Are there any side effects?

Are there any side effects?

Cryotherapy is relatively low risk. There are a few side effects that may occur as a result of treatment, including:
  • • Pigmentary changes (hypopigmentation and hyperpigmentation) if this happens skin colour normally returns after a few months. NOTE: Age spots generally go darker 1-2 weeks before they lose pigmentation.
  • • Nerve damage (particularly in areas where nerves lie close to the surface of the skin, on fingers, wrist, area behind the ear) Reports show that normal sensitivity returns after a few months
  • • Shards of frozen ice (minor shards of frozen ice may blow out, that will thaw on contact with healthy skin. Cryopen has the lowest risk of this)
  • • Hair follicle damage and permanent alopecia
  • (especially when treating area on sites with coarse terminal hair).
  • Discuss any concerns you have with your clinician in our FREE CONSULTATION.

    How safe is Cryotherapy?

    How safe is Cryotherapy?

    Cryotherapy is a relatively low-risk procedure. Cryopen™ delivers N2O directly to the area, and not the healthy surrounding tissue. Cryopen™ is both CE and FDA registered.

    Is the treatment painful?

    Is the treatment painful?

    There will be a sensation similar to a stinging nettle on the skin when the coolant, nitrous oxide, reaches the bottom of the lesion. There might be a little residual stinging for a few minutes after treatment. This sensation is a trait of Cryotherapy; However the Cryopen only treats the lesion not the surrounding skin and by treating less the discomfort is greatly diminished in comparioson to older methods of Cryotherapy.
