More About:


Preparation: The treatment area is cleansed and marked for targeted application.

Precise Freezing: The Cryopen delivers a fine jet of nitrous oxide, freezing and destroying the targeted tissue.

Monitoring: Your doctor carefully monitors the freezing process to ensure accuracy and minimise discomfort.

Aftercare: Follow your doctor's instructions, which may include gentle cleansing and avoiding sun exposure.

Risks & Complications:

Generally safe, potential side effects include:

  • Temporary redness, swelling, or bruising
  • Minor blistering (rare)
  • Skin lightening (uncommon)
  • Scarring (very rare)

How Does



Cryopen utilises cryotherapy, a process where controlled freezing temperatures destroy unwanted tissue. The pressurised nitrous oxide rapidly cools the targeted area, disrupting cell membranes and causing the tissue to die off naturally. The body then gradually eliminates the destroyed cells, leaving behind healthier skin.

Before & After


Here are some frequently asked questions, cant find an answer? Get in touch and we will be happy to help!

Will Cryopen treatment hurt?

Most people experience a mild stinging sensation during freezing, which subsides quickly. The Cryopen uses a targeted application and your doctor carefully monitors the process to minimise discomfort. Topical numbing cream can also be used for sensitive areas.

Will the results from Cryopen be permanent?

Cryopen permanently removes the treated lesions. However, new skin blemishes can develop due to sun exposure, aging, or other factors. Maintaining sun protection and a good skincare routine can help prevent new lesions and prolong the results.

How long does it take to see results from Cryopen?

You may see initial fading or shrinking of the treated lesions within 1-2 weeks. The full results, with complete removal and smooth, clear skin, typically develop over 4-8 weeks as your body eliminates the destroyed tissue. Remember, individual results may vary.
