Cryotherapy

Cosmetic procedures such as skin tags, milia and cherry angiomas are no longer being treated by many doctors on the NHS. With the CryoPen™, these treatments are now available at Elle:

 

CRYOPEN™ OFFERS THE IDEAL TREATMENT FOR:

  • Skin tags

  • Solar lentigo

  • Age spots

  • Milia

  • Warts

  • Cherry angioma

  • Viral verrucae

 

How does it work?

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 collateral damage to healthy tissue. 

 

What happens in a Treatment?

  1. First Cycle - Freeze: The applicator is held as close as possible to the skin imperfection and moved quickly towards and away from it. This could be from 1-30 seconds, depending on the size and depth.

  2. Thaw: The tissue is allowed to thaw for about 30 seconds.

  3. Second Cycle - Freeze: Now the second freeze cycle will begin. The tissue will freeze faster than during the first freezing cycle.

Is the treatment painful?

There will be a sensation similar to a stinging nettle on the skin when the nitrous oxide reaches the bottom of the area during application. There might be a little residual stinging for a few minutes after treatment, although this is rarely reported by our clients.

 

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.

How quickly will I see results?

Results are typically seen 4 weeks after your treatment. 

How much will the treatment cost?

Consultations with our Cryotherapy Technician are free.

Treatments start from £75 for the first treatment, depending on the size of the area to be treated.
