Cryosurgery, which is also sometimes called cryotherapy, uses liquid nitrogen to destroy these skin lesions. Dr. Robinson uses a specially designed probe to apply the liquid nitrogen to the area of the skin being treated, freezing that area to temperatures below zero.
Cryotherapy can be an effective method of wart removal and other skin lesions, and most often it does not result in any scar formation. It may not be for everyone, people with dark skin may lose pigmentation over the area treated, and areas that are hairy may lose hair over the area treated. Some pain can be associated with the treatment, but most people say that it only lasts less than a minute while the area is being treated.
Cryotherapy is an effective method for removing warts, skin tags, or other lesions that can be performed quickly and most often without any scar formation.
