Quick & Simple Procedure to Remove Skin Lesions
Warts, moles, or skin tags, can really affect your body confidence. At Bodyvie, we have a range of treatments that can help remove these unsightly blemishes and one of the most effective is cryotherapy.
Cryotherapy is an extremely quick technique that involves removing the skin lesion with the precise application of ultra-low temperature liquid nitrogen.
The procedure is carried out by our highly qualified doctor who will spray a fine jet of the super cooled liquid directly onto the skin from a specialised high-pressure canister with a very precise nozzle, ensuring only the target area is treated.
With the temperature in the skin growth reduced to around -40º, ice crystals form in the abnormal cells, blocking off their blood supply. The body’s natural healing process is triggered, forming a blister over the area and promoting new skin to form underneath. The blister turns into a small scab and usually falls off within 7-10 days, leaving the skin blemish free.
Cryotherapy has been a popular method for removing skin growths of all kinds for many years, due to its simplicity and high success rate. It can be used to treat a wide range of conditions and the procedure lasts only a few minutes. There is no need to apply any cream to the treatment area or keep it covered, so you are able to return to your normal activities as soon as you leave the clinic. Each treatment may vary from one person to another.
After treatment, the skin lesion usually changes colour before falling off naturally after a few days. The area may be slightly reddened for up to a week before returning to its usual colour. In some cases, the procedure may leave a small scar.
Cryotherapy can be used to treat warts, verrucas, skin tags, moles, solar keratoses (sun-damaged skin) and other benign lesions.
