Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy, or cold surgery, refers to the use of low temperatures to treat skin lesions. At Fabelle we utilise the Cryopen for cryotherapy treatments.

Cryopen uses disposable cartridges of liquefied nitrous oxide (N2O) to deliver quick, effective Cryotherapy treatments to benign skin lesions. The N2O destroys the skin’s tissue by freezing the intercellular fluid which forms ice shards and crystals that rupture the cells’ membranes, destroying the cells.

Cryopen delivers N2O directly onto the lesion and not the healthy surrounding tissue, it can safely treat lesions on the face and around the delicate eye area as well as on the body. 

This treatment is ideal for :

  • Skin Tags
  • Seborrheic keratosis
  • Milia
  • Age Spots
  • Sun Spots
  • Liver Spots
  • Cherry angiomas

The duration of the treatment will depend upon the lesion being treated but will be between 1-30 seconds of freezing. After the treatment, the frozen lesion develops a blister during the first 24 hours which lasts 2 to 5 days. After it scabs over the lesion, healing depends on how deep the wound is. Typically, healing occurs from 2 to 6 weeks, depending on length of freeze and location.
