CryoPen Treatment


CryoPen treatment is a quick and painless way to address skin imperfections such as warts, cherry angioma, seborrheic keratosis, and milia. When directed towards any lesion, it causes it to instantly drop in temperature – providing effective results in short order. The actual Interesting Info about CryoPen treatment.

This brief freezing cycle destroys tissue by creating ice crystals that rupture cell membranes, with no collateral damage left behind. While occasionally pigment changes such as hyper- or hypopigmentation may occur, they typically return to normal within a few months.


Warts are small hard bumps that appear on the skin. Although they may be itchy and irritating, they typically pose no lasting harm. CryoPen treatment has proven highly successful at treating warts and verruca. It’s a fast, pain-free procedure with no need for anesthetic – perfect for popping in during lunch break!

This device creates a pinpoint jet of nitrous oxide under high pressure that allows us to pinpoint lesions with millimeter accuracy. Once in contact with tissue around a lesion, nitrous oxide freezes it off by crystalizing and rupturing membranes nearby, causing frozen tissue to freeze off, which causes crystalization before gradually dissipating with time as our natural defense mechanisms clear it away.

As part of your treatment, you may experience slight discomfort, similar to when pressing a pen against the skin; this should pass quickly! Later, you may also feel mild stinging caused by the nitrous oxide hitting an area, and it will go away naturally.

Once treated with the CryoPen, your lesion may have darkened in appearance and possibly appear covered with crusting or scabs – both are perfectly normal, however picking at these areas could lead to infection of your lesion and further discomfort or irritation. Apply aloe vera directly to this area to speed up healing time while alleviating potential discomfort or irritation.

One treatment with the CryoPen should be enough to eradicate your warts and verrucae; however, we will closely monitor and advise you during your free review appointment should any follow-up treatments be necessary.

Cherry Angiomas

Cherry angiomas are common red circular skin growths found most commonly on the torso, arms, and legs of women; men may also develop them. Although non-cancerous and utterly harmless to health, appearance varies, with some being flat while others having raised areas; they range in size from pinhead diameter to quarter-inch diameter when tanned and can appear more prominent under UV radiation exposure. Cherry angiomas usually do not change over time nor require treatment unless symptoms such as bleeding, itching, redness, or swelling require it unless they cause concern over location or appearance accompanied by symptoms such as bleeding, itchiness, redness, or swelling.

Because moles may easily be mistaken for skin cancer lesions, we strongly advise seeking advice from both your GP and specialist, who will examine the lesion to ensure it cannot be related to cancer and can be safely treated by CryoPen.

Treatment is quick, straightforward, and effective with the use of a unique applicator that enables practitioners to focus on treating only angiomas without invading healthy tissue nearby. Furthermore, this tool comes equipped with various attachments tailored specifically towards dealing with multiple sizes of lesions, making the procedure stress-free for both practitioner and patient.

CryoPen treatments usually suffice to resolve angiomas quickly and comfortably, lasting only 5-25 seconds per treatment session and providing relief in just days.

Once an angioma has been effectively frozen with the CryoPen, its appearance should gradually decrease over time, and skin may return to its original color – although if your skin is sensitive, it may remain pale for some time longer.

An alternative solution for treating cherry angiomas may include electrocautery (heating) or laser therapy treatments from professionals. While these may be more costly options than surgery, they can still offer effective removal.

Skin Tags

Skin tags are small growths that hang off of the skin, usually harmless but occasionally unattractive for cosmetic reasons. A CryoPen treatment uses cold nitrous oxide gas ejected at high pressure onto the skin to freeze and destroy benign lesions such as skin tags quickly and painlessly without using liquids or anesthesia, making this quick and painless procedure accessible to clients of all ages.

Participants were randomly assigned one of two cryogenic pens marketed for home use – Pixie Skin Tag or Wortie Skin Tag Remover, both capable of reaching freezing temperatures of -80 degrees Celsius. Pixie Skin Tag stands out with a flexible nib that has an ideal surface to ensure optimal contact between its tip and frozen blemishes, such as skin tags that have unlevel surfaces, which makes treatment with standard cryogenic pens difficult.

Treatment takes only seconds per lesion and is painless; some may feel as if an ice cube were being placed directly onto their skin, but no harm will come of it, and the blemishes will eventually fade away on their own.

After your treatment, you may experience mild to medium stinging that will subside within minutes or hours; this is normal and doesn’t diminish its efficacy.

The CryoPen is an exciting innovation in skin lesion removal. Using its advanced applicator pen, its precision applicator allows for precise, ‘pen-point precision’ that minimizes damage to surrounding tissue while consistently freezing temperature ensures maximum effectiveness. Ideal for the removal of benign blemishes, including skin tags, moles, cherry angiomas, age spots, and viral verrucas (viral verrucas). Safe even for children! In the hands of trained practitioners, results are instantaneous and impressive!

Age/Sun Spots

CryoPen treatment is an easy, painless procedure designed to quickly eradicate skin tags, warts, verrucae, milia, cherry angiomas, and age spots. This advanced cryotherapy innovation uses a fine jet of high-pressured nitrous oxide that is directed directly onto lesions with millimeter precision; once frozen by this nitrous oxide, it quickly destroys tissue without harming surrounding healthy cells or skin tissues.

Nitrous oxide can be directed directly at a lesion and continuously applied over a specific duration, depending on its size and type. Its effects freeze cells that break down over time and ultimately die out, causing any unwanted areas to collapse as their cells rupture and die off, eventually disappearing the unwanted skin lesion altogether. Unlike traditional treatment methods such as anesthesia or topical numbing creams, pressure from nitrous oxide feels similar to having a pen point pressed against your skin.

Sunspots (or liver spots) are discolored areas of skin that appear on sun-exposed parts of the body such as shoulders, backs, or forearms and often darken with sun exposure – often shading from light brown to black in hue over time. While not cancerous or harmful to health, many patients wish to remove them for aesthetic purposes.

At our RN Tammy’s Clinic in North Charleston, she will use the CryoPen to remove sunspots in one session with our CryoPen device quickly. She will target and apply a steady stream of nitrous oxide directly onto any problematic spots or lesions on the skin lesions; generally, 10-30 seconds will suffice. If an incredibly stubborn lesion persists for longer than expected, Tammy may pause her CryoPen before continuing treatment using its “freeze-thaw” technique, thus increasing effectiveness while decreasing regrowth risk.

The resulting scab will typically peel away in 7 to 10 days. To increase your odds of recovery and prevent new skin growths from appearing, keep the treated area free from dirt and moisture exposure; once it has gone away, do not attempt to pick or peel at it, as this could result in scarring and hypopigmentation of the treated area.
