Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy is an advanced approach to skin rejuvenation that utilizes extreme cold temperatures to stimulate the body’s natural healing response and rejuvenate the skin. At Naomi Waite Aesthetics clinic, we offer cryotherapy in the form of a CryoPen, which is a cutting-edge device that uses a stream of freezing gas to deliver targeted and effective treatment.

Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy is a minimally invasive treatment that can be used to address a wide range of skin issues, including sun damage, age spots, skin tags, warts, and other imperfections. The treatment is quick and painless and can be completed in as little as 5-10 minutes, making it a convenient option for busy clients.

The process of cryotherapy involves the use of a small, handheld device that delivers a precise stream of cold gas to the targeted area. The extreme cold causes the cells in the treated area to freeze and die, prompting the body to produce collagen and elastin to repair the damage. These natural substances help to improve skin texture and tone, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and create a smoother, more youthful complexion.

At Naomi Waite Aesthetics, we offer cryotherapy treatment for a variety of areas including the face, neck, hands, and feet. Our skilled team of professionals is dedicated to providing our clients with the highest level of care, using the latest techniques and technologies to achieve stunning results.

In conclusion, if you are looking for a safe, effective, and convenient way to rejuvenate your skin, cryotherapy may be just what you need. Contact us to schedule a consultation and learn more about the benefits of this innovative treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

The treatment takes seconds. There may be some slight stinging after the treatment and the area may feel a little itchy and will look red.

Usually you will only need to have one treatment, however we recommend that you have a follow up visit 4-6 weeks after your initial visit so that we can check the treatment site and determine if a follow up treatment is required.

Cryopen treatment is a non-invasive, fast, and efficient cryotherapy treatment that uses extreme cold to remove skin lesions such as warts, skin tags, and age spots. The device freezes the area with liquid nitrogen, and the skin lesion then naturally falls off within a few weeks.

Cryopen can treat various skin conditions such as warts, skin tags, age spots, solar keratosis, verruca’s and benign moles. However, it's important to consult with a professional to determine the suitability of cryopen treatment for your specific skin condition. 

In the treatment of moles or a skin condition that is unusual we must require you to have a doctors note after seeking professional medical advice before we can treat you.

The procedure itself is not painful, but you may feel a slight discomfort or stinging sensation during the treatment. However, this sensation goes away quickly, and the overall procedure is relatively painless.

The length of the procedure depends on the size and number of the skin lesions. Most treatments take between 5-15 minutes.

There is no downtime required after cryopen treatment. You can resume your daily activities immediately after the treatment.

Some people may experience temporary redness, swelling, or blistering around the treated area. However, these side effects are rare and generally resolve within a few days.

Blistering is a potential side effect of cryopen treatments, which may occur due to the freezing of the targeted area. It is essential to be aware of the risks and be prepared for proper aftercare in case of blistering.

The formation of blisters after a cryopen treatment is a natural response of the skin to the freezing process. The blister may appear immediately after treatment or a few hours later and can range in size from small to large. While it can be uncomfortable, it is important not to pop or pick the blister as it may lead to further complications and slow down the healing process.

In order to promote healing and prevent infection, it is recommended to keep the blister clean and dry. A sterile dressing can be applied to the affected area to protect it and promote healing. It is essential to avoid exposure to heat, extreme cold, and friction as it can irritate the blister and prolong the healing process.

It is also advised to avoid applying any creams or lotions on the blister as it can interfere with the healing process. Instead, use a mild soap and water to clean the affected area and pat dry with a clean towel.

It is important to note that the blister may take up to a week or more to heal completely, depending on its size and severity. During this time, it is recommended to avoid any activities that may cause friction or irritation to the affected area.

While blistering after a cryopen treatment may be an undesirable side effect, it is essential to be aware of the risks and follow proper aftercare measures to promote healing and prevent infection. By taking the necessary precautions, one can ensure a successful and safe cryopen treatment experience.

The number of treatments required depends on the size, location, and type of skin lesion. In most cases, a single treatment is sufficient to remove the lesion. However, some more complex cases may require multiple treatments.

The skin may take 1-4 weeks to heal completely after a cryopen treatment. During this time, it's important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by the professional. The skin may take a number of weeks for redness to fully disappear.

Cryopen treatment is generally suitable for all skin types. However, it's important to consult with us to determine the suitability of the treatment for your specific skin type.

Cryopen treatment has a high success rate, and most patients experience complete removal of their skin lesions after a single treatment. However, the success rate depends on the type of skin lesion and your individual response to the treatment.

Treatment Care

Cryopen is a popular and effective treatment for a range of skin conditions, including warts, skin tags, and age spots. To ensure the best possible outcome from your Cryopen treatment at Naomi Waite Aesthetics, it is important to follow these pre care recommendations:

  • Avoid sun exposure and self-tanners for at least two weeks before your appointment.
  • Avoid using any harsh skincare products, such as retinoids or glycolic acids, for at least a week before your appointment.
  • If you have any active skin infections or open wounds in the treatment area, reschedule your appointment until these have healed.
  • If you have a history of cold sores, let your practitioner know before your appointment, as Cryopen can potentially trigger an outbreak.
  • If you are taking any medications that thin the blood, such as aspirin or warfarin, let your practitioner know before your appointment, as this may affect the treatment.
  • Do not shave, wax, or pluck hairs in the treatment area for at least two weeks before your appointment.

Risks of Cryopen:

While Cryopen is generally considered a safe procedure, there are some risks associated with it. These may include:

  • Infection: An infection can occur if the treated area is not kept clean and dry or if the skin is broken during the procedure.
  • Scarring: Although rare, scarring can occur if the treated area is not properly cared for or if the skin is excessively traumatized during the procedure.
  • Hypopigmentation: This is a loss of skin color that can occur as a result of the procedure. It is more common in people with darker skin tones.
  • Hyperpigmentation: This is a darkening of the skin that can occur as a result of the procedure. It is more common in people with lighter skin tones.
  • Pain: Some people may experience pain or discomfort during the procedure, but this is usually mild and can be managed with a local anesthetic cream.
