Cryotherapy literally, "cold, freezing therapy" sometimes referred to as cryosurgery. This technique involves the use of extremely low temperatures to destroy abnormal cells. Cryotherapy is used to treat a number of diseases and disorders, most especially skin conditions like warts, moles, skin tags and solar keratoses, benign and some malignant skin lesions. Hypopigmentation is a common complication with cryotherapy. We use this effect as an advantage when treating pigmented solar keratosis lesions.
Liquid nitrogen is usually used to freeze the tissues at the cellular level. The procedure is used often because of its efficacy and low rates of side effects. Patients typically experience some discomfort during the freezing stage of the procedure, but they do not require local anesthetic or other pain management techniques. Liquid nitrogen is the best and universal freezing source because of its low boiling point and its ease of use. Other sources that are used to freeze such as Freon, carbon dioxide, and nitrous oxide, do exist, but they are not as efficient in destroying lesions because of their higher boiling points. We use the most effective method (liquid nitrogen) in Cyprus Aesthetic Center with FDA (Food and Drug Administration, USA) approved medical equipments to obtain best results.
