Cryotherapy, or Freezing, is used to treat a variety of skin conditions such as Seborhoeic Warts, Viral Warts and small Skin Tags. It is quick and simple, taking less than 30 seconds for each benign skin lesion. It stings during the treatment, and afterwards, the skin lesion may become a bit crusty for several days before dropping off. Larger, or more stubborn lesions may need to have repeated treatments with Cryotherapy before they drop off or reduce in size.
The most commonly treated skin lesion at Stafford Skincare - Lichfield is a Seborrhoeic Wart. Seborrhoeic Warts are usually rough or crusty, brown lesions found on the back, on the abdomen or under the bust. Sometimes they are itchy. Cryotherapy is very useful to reduce the size or to remove seborrhoeic warts.
Seborrhoeic Warts may also develop on the face or on the back of the hands, where they are often flat and pale brown in colour. As they get more obvious, it becomes more difficult to cover the brown patches of skin with make-up. Cryotherapy may be used to reduce the brown colour, making them less obvious.
Cryotherapy is also used to treat small Skin Tags, if these are very small. Skin Tags that are larger than 2-3mm in size usually need to be removed by skin surgery.
The cost of Cryotherapy depends on the number of skin lesions treated and starts from £175 per treatment session. Treatments may need to be repeated, depending on the skin lesion, and the desired effect. As cryotherapy may be painful , it is not suitable for children under 12 years of age.
