Banish those unwanted age spots
with just a flick of the CyroPen!
Smooth skin tone and restore your
natural youthful complexion with
this miracle treatment.
The pen harnesses the power of pressurised nitrous
oxide to eradicate those unwanted signs of ageing. The
pen is set to a chilly -89ºC and applied to the unwanted
lesions, which are frozen and destroyed in a matter of
seconds! The exact duration of the treatment varies
slightly depending on the size of the lesion, but it’s
always over in just a few seconds, and you’ll see results
almost instantly. Often a‘freeze-thaw’approach is used,
where the lesion is frozen, thawed and immediately
frozen again, for doubly effective results.
It’s best to leave the treated area uncovered, but you
can apply a simple dressing if the area may rub and
become aggravated. Directly after the treatment, a
scab will form and the lesion may become a little red
and angry looking, but don’t worry, this is completely
normal! Remember, don't pick the scabs as this can
lead to scarring. This stage will usually take around
1-4 weeks, during which time the lesions will vanish,
although there may be a small area of scarring or
slight change in skin tone on the treated area. Lesions
on the legs can take a little bit longer to heal. A follow-
up visit is recommended after 2-4 weeks to assess
response and see if further application is required.
