CryoPen treatment is a non-invasive cryosurgery procedure used to remove various skin imperfections safely and effectively. It utilises a high-pressure jet of nitrous oxide (N2O) directed through a specialised CryoPen applicator tip to freeze and destroy benign skin lesions, leaving the skin looking rejuvenated and free from blemishes.
This treatment is known for its precision and minimal discomfort, making it a popular choice for addressing issues such as warts, skin tags, moles, and other bothersome skin irregularities.
Non-Invasive: It is a non-surgical procedure, which means no incisions or stitches are required.
Precision: CryoPen allows for precise targeting of specific skin imperfections without affecting the surrounding healthy tissue.
Minimal Discomfort: Most patients experience minimal pain or discomfort during and after the procedure.
Quick Procedure: CryoPen treatments are usually brief and can often be done in a single session, requiring minimal downtime.
The CryoPen is applied directly to the mole or skin tag. This causes the cells within the lesion to freeze and die. You may feel a brief, intense cold sensation or even a stinging feeling during this process. The freezing time may vary based on the size and type of the lesion.

Does Cryopen hurt?
