Skin Tag Removal

Skin Tag Removal using the CryoPen™, is an advanced cryotherapy innovation that is a fast, effective, safe and new solution for removal of skin imperfections. Procedures typically last from 5 to 25 seconds, so you can be in and out of the medispa quickly.

The CryoPen™ emits a fine jet of nitrous oxide under high pressure, which allows the clinician to work with millimetre precision. This destroys the tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid, forming ice shards and crystals which rupture the membrane, thereby destroying the cell. That means there will be no collateral damage to healthy tissue. It’s so incredibly accurate and practical.

Cosmetic procedures such as skin tags, milia and cherry angiomas are no longer being treated by many doctors on the NHS. With the CryoPen™ you can now have these treatments in the medispa.

What happens during skin tag removal?

The applicator is held as close as possible to the skin imperfection the freezing is moved quickly towards and away from it. This could be from 1-30 seconds, depending on the size and depth.  The Skin Tag is then allowed to thaw for about 30 seconds. If required the freeze cycle will be repeated.

Are there any side effects?

Cryotherapy is non invasive and relatively low risk.  There are a few side effects that may occur as a result of treatment, including: Temporary pigmentary changes (hypopigmentation and hyperpigmentation) in the treatment site. If this happens skin colour normally returns after a few months.  Temporary loss of sensation (particularly in areas where nerves lie close to the surface of the skin, on fingers, wrist, area behind the ear) Reports show that normal sensitivity returns after a few months.  Blister in the treatment area – this will be reabsorbed by the skin.

How much does the treatment cost?

Treatment is from £50
