Wart and verruca removal treatment at Harley Skin and Laser is carried out using the CryoPen™ device. It uses extreme cold, or cryotherapy, to painlessly and safely remove a wide range of skin imperfections. CryoPen uses a technology referred to as cryotherapy – ‘cryo’ meaning ‘icy cold’. This involves the use of a high pressure jet of nitrous oxide – N2O, (the source of the cold energy), which is directed at the specific lesion being treated, to within millimetre accuracy.
It is one of the leading lesion treatment devices available on the market to cosmetic practitioners. The practitioner simply points the CryoPen applicator tip directly at the lesion and applies the cryotherapy. The jet of cold treats any abnormal tissue without interfering with or damaging normal tissue in a matter of seconds.
