Cryotherapy is a non-surgical treatment involving the removal of skin lesions using liquid nitrogen to freeze the skin cells until they die. It can be used to treat a wide variety of superficial benign lesions including:
- Viral warts
- Actinic keratosis (an area of sun-damaged skin found predominantly on sun-exposed parts of the body)
- Seborrheic keratosis and other benign lesions
- Small skin cancers such as Bowen’s disease and basal cell carcinomas
This procedure is safe and straightforward with minimal or no downtime.
