CRYOPEN CRYOTHERAPY DURHAMSAFELY REMOVING AGE SPOTS, WARTS, SKIN TAGS, VERRUCAS AND MORE
CRYOTHERAPY – CRYOPEN TREATMENT DURHAM
Dr. Matla offers Cryotherapy technology in Durham using CryoPen to destroy unwanted, benign, and superficial lesions on the skin’s surface, such as warts, skin tags, verrucae, milia, cherry angiomas, scars, and resistant hyperpigmentation. This involves the use of a high-pressure jet of nitrous oxide – N2O – (the source of the cold energy) that is precisely directed at the lesion being treated.
CryoPen therapy takes far less time than other treatments, with treatment sessions lasting less than 2 minutes. There is no need for anesthesia, and the procedure is virtually painless. It is one of the least invasive lesion treatments on the market, and it can be used to treat almost any benign skin lesion.
Cryotherapy Treatment Procedure
It is one of the most popular lesion treatment devices on the market for cosmetic practitioners. The practitioner simply applies cryotherapy by pointing the CryoPen applicator tip directly at the lesion. The jet of cold treats any abnormal tissue in a matter of seconds without interfering with or injuring normal tissue.

How does CryoPen Work?
CryoPen cryotherapy therapy is an established procedure in which nitrous oxide gas is ejected under high pressure onto the skin. The gas is extremely cold, which aids in the freezing and destruction of any benign lesions.
During application, the CryoPen’s tip reaches -89°C. The rationale for this is to cause a thermal shock at the point where the gas is directed, resulting in the destruction of skin lesions as the membrane covering the treated cells is torn and destroyed, resulting in the destruction of skin lesions.
During cryotherapy therapy, a frost or ice field may form on top of the lesion. This isn’t a big deal because the frost usually melts away within a few seconds. After 30 seconds, the frozen lesion is given a second treatment, which causes the tissue to freeze faster the second time around, increasing the likelihood of the lesion being destroyed.
To accelerate the healing process, it is best to leave the region uncovered following cryotherapy treatment. Your practitioner may apply a simple dressing or plaster if the lesion is at risk of being scraped or worsened in any manner.

What are the advantages of CryoPen Cryotherapy?
- Pinpoint accuracy (treats just the lesion and not healthy surrounding tissue)
- Treatment that is both effective and safe.
- It is safe to use on the face and near the eyes and treats lesions ranging in size from 1mm to 10mm.
- Minimal Discomfort
What are the Risks and Side Effects?
CryoPen cryotherapy therapy has been proven to be extremely safe. Be prepared, however, for the following:
- Minor discomfort during the procedure – The discomfort is typically described as feeling like a pen being pressed against your skin. It will, however, only last a few seconds unless you have a problem, such as a skin allergy. In most cases, no topical anaesthesia (or numbing cream) is required prior to treatment.
- Mild stinging after the procedure – You will most likely experience mild to medium stinging that will last for a few minutes to an hour. Again, don’t be concerned about the stinging; it will go away on its own.
- Blisters and sores – The skin where the lesion was treated can become inflamed, red, weepy, and blistered in rare circumstances. It may sting for an hour or more after treatment. In the days that follow, a scab will most likely emerge. When deep freezing is utilised, this is typical, and it might cause pain immediately afterwards. Topical or oral pain medications may be prescribed if necessary. Scratching or picking at a scab can cause scarring.
- In 1 to 4 weeks, the treated lesions should heal completely, and the scabs that form around the lesion should go off within a week to 10 days. The most difficult lesions to heal are those on the legs. Some people may have a temporary change in skin colour (pigmentation) or small scarring in the treated area; pigmentation is more common in people with darker skin types and isn’t always brief.
- Because cryotherapy can harm hair follicles, a small amount of hair loss may occur if the lesion is near a hair follicle, such as on the scalp.
If a previously treated lesion fails to heal as expected, or if pain or redness lingers after a few days, you should see your doctor again, as these could be signs of infection.
Are there any cases where Cryotherapy can not be used?
Anyone can comfortably undergo a CryoPen cryotherapy treatment, However, there are a few special cases:
- Because some lesions can be linked to cancer and are easily confused with regular, benign lesions, it is critical to do a correct diagnosis of a lesion before treatment. As CryoPen cannot be used to treat malignant tumours, specialist consultation from a doctor or dermatologist is required. If you have any concerns about a lesion or if it has altered in any manner recently, please see your doctor first.
- If the lesions are too close to delicate body structures, such as the eyes, CryoPen may not be employed.
- Treatment will not be recommended for pregnant women or breastfeeding mothers since the hazards are unknown, and you will be encouraged to postpone treatment until after this time in your life.
How Long does the Cryotherapy Treatment Take to Perform and Heal?
The size and shape of the lesion often dictate the amount of time it takes to notice results. The treatment procedure, on the other hand, takes only 2 to 10 seconds to complete in one session for a normal, superficial, benign lesion. Results are often visible within 1 to 6 weeks of cryotherapy treatment.
4 weeks following cryotherapy treatment, a follow-up appointment is usually recommended to assess the response to treatment and determine if additional treatments are required to completely remove any remaining lesions or portions of the lesion. One treatment may be sufficient for mild, simple lesions, and no follow-up is required.
If the lesion is too persistent and does not react to the first cryotherapy treatment, a second treatment may be required. One to four weeks following the first treatment, the second should be done.
Why choose Dr Matla for Cryotherapy?
We cannot stress enough the importance of choosing the practitioner you allow to carry out your treatments. Currently, practitioners do not need a medical degree or medical training to administer cryotherapy treatments. This has resulted in an increase of unregulated practitioners offering treatments at lower prices than doctor-led clinics. A medical professional who has experience in administering treatments can advise you on how many treatments you may need and administer treatments considering the effects and side effects for the treatment area which gives peace of mind to the patient.
Booking a consultation with a medically trained professional ensures that you receive the best treatment plan for yourself. At the consultation, Dr Matla can examine your skin and advise you on which treatment options are most suited to you. For Cryotherapy treatments, a consultation with a trained medical professional is vital in creating your bespoke treatment plan. With Dr Matla’s wealth of experience and ability to create a unique course of high-quality treatments for each patient, you’re only a consultation away from reaching your personal aesthetic goals.
