Patient Before and After Images
What does the treatment do?
Cryotherapy damages the abnormal cells within skin lesions, killing them off and allowing the growth of new, healthier skin cells. The freezing only takes between 5 and 30 seconds, depending on the concern being targeted by treatment. Cryotherapy is most commonly used in the treatment of warts, acne, scarring, and irregular skin growths.
At Dermasurge, all cryotherapy treatments in London are performed by Dr Hiba Injibar, our founder. As a skilled consultant dermatologist, Dr Hiba is highly experienced at diagnosing most skin concerns, and administering cryotherapy where appropriate in-house at our Harley Street clinic.
All patients must undergo a consultation with Dr Hiba before receiving treatment, in order to fully assess the skin and ensure cryotherapy is the correct course of action for achieving the best results
Frequently Asked Questions
Patients should expect to feel some level of discomfort, as cryotherapy exposes the skin to extreme cold temperatures. However, this is over extremely brief periods of time, and no extreme pain should be felt.
Patients may notice inflammation, swelling, redness, blisters, scabbing or weeping in the treatment area for a few days after the procedure, though this should not take too long to subside. For patients with naturally pigmented skin, they may notice a slight change in colour in the skin of the treatment area compared to the surrounding skin.
There are a number of contraindications to cryotherapy, including pregnancy, hypertension, arrhythmia, symptomatic cardiovascular disease, venous thrombosis, and Raynauld’s Syndrome to name a few. During your consultation, Dr Injibar will question you about your medical history to determine that cryotherapy is safe for you and recommend alternative treatments if needed.
