CRYOPEN TREATMENT

Freezing with Cryopen - Everything you want to know

Here we answer all questions about treatment with Cryopen. If you have further questions, please contact us. You are also welcome to book a free consultation.

With Cryopen we freeze with 55 bar pressure down the stain / wart to -89c which breaks the cells and destroys it. As the instrument has millimeter precision, the surrounding tissue is not damaged. 1-3 treatments may be needed, but often one is enough. Each treatment usually takes between 10-30 seconds. Foot warts require several treatments.

We can also remove marks on the face. However, we want you to be aware that there will usually be some new form of brand left.

* You can get a pigment change. That is, a lighter or a darker shade at the treatment area. They can remain for a few months and in some cases for a much longer time.

* If you have very dark skin, the risk of hyperpigmentation (lighter spots) is higher than for others.

* After the treatment, a crust forms. This must be allowed to remain as long as possible. If you are there and peel it off, you risk irritation and infection which can cause scarring.

We do not recommend removing marks on the face during the summer.

No special preparations are needed for a cryopene treatment except for hand and foot warts, see below. However, we recommend not removing marks in e.g. face or other frequently exposed surfaces during summer time.

IMPORTANT: For foot wart. Before you come for treatment, you should take a foot bath and cut and file away as much of the wart as you can. We need to be able to treat as close to the root of the wart as possible for a good result.

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: It is of utmost importance that you yourself are sure that your “spots” are benign. If you are at all unsure, you must contact a doctor and get a statement. The treatments we perform are only of a cosmetic nature.

Shortly after the treatment, the area will begin to darken. After a few days, it is often completely black. There may be an increase around the area and in some cases a blister may occur. A crust will form and it is important not to peel it. The longer it stays the better. If you peel off the crust, you risk a minor scarring. You should not expose the area to sunlight, it can cause pigment changes. The new skin that is formed after the removal of stains / warts needs to heal in peace and quiet. It takes 2-6 weeks before the skin heals completely.

The price of a treatment includes a return visit. The follow-up must be done at the earliest one month after the treatment. Then we check that it has healed properly and if necessary, we perform another treatment. If applicable, a new return visit is of course included. You should be able to feel completely satisfied and spotless!

You should be able to count on getting rid of the stain itself completely. Often only one treatment is required, but up to three may be needed for a satisfactory result. When you buy a treatment, follow-up and any more treatment opportunities are included in the price. You pay to get rid of the stain / wart and we make sure that it disappears completely.

Most stains do not hurt at all. You feel that it gets cold and a slightly rushing / stinging feeling arises. It may sting slightly immediately after the treatment and after 10-15 minutes it may itch slightly.

Nipples can be a little more sensitive. On the one hand, we have a lot of nerves and warts often grow a few millimeters into the skin, which requires a little longer freezing.

However, the treatment with Cryopen is so fast and simple that no anesthesia is needed.

Cryopen is a very gentle treatment but there are some conditions where we do not treat.

* We do not treat patients with Type 1 Diabetes except in exceptional cases.

* We do not treat patients undergoing chemo or radiotherapy, this applies from 4 weeks before starting therapy until 4 weeks after stopping therapy.

* We do not treat during pregnancy and lactation.

* We do not treat if you are cold allergic.

* We do not treat if you suffer from vascular disease.

In short – We only treat healthy people. Diseases, medications, hormones and allergies that we mentioned above negatively affect the body’s healing ability. If you suffer from any of these, we refer you to healthcare.

No, there is no age limit for treatment with Cryopen. On the other hand, we require a parent’s permission to treat minors and here with us we do not treat children.

No. We only work with the removal of stains of a cosmetic nature.
Assessment of skin blemishes may and should only be done by licensed and trained doctors and dermatologists. If you are at least a little unsure about your spot, you must contact your health center for a statement before treatment.

At your health center, you can get help with larger troublesome spots or spots of a dubious nature. If, on the other hand, they consider that the stains are only cosmetically disturbing, they will refer to private clinics. Then you are warmly welcome to us and we will help you!

There is now also a service at several Pharmacies where you can get help with checking your birthmarks.

Although Cryotherapy is a relatively low-risk treatment, there are some side effects that can occur.

* You can get a pigment change. That is, a lighter or a darker shade at the treatment area. They can remain for a few months and in very rare cases for a long time.

* If you have very dark skin, the risk of hyperpigmentation (lighter spots) is higher than for others. This should be taken into consideration primarily when treating the face, hands and décolleté.

* After the treatment, a crust forms. This must be allowed to remain as long as possible. If you are there and peel it off, you risk irritation and infection which can cause scarring.

* You can get numbness. Where applicable, a temporary state of lost sensation has occurred on the treatment surface. This has been experienced on the fingers, at the ankles and behind the ears. Follow-up of the symptoms has shown that this has disappeared after a couple of months.

* A treated area usually gets hair loss. That is, the surface where the stain itself has been sitting will not grow hair on. There is simply no hair follicle on the new skin that the body produces.

* Other possible but very rare side effects
Edema – a slight swelling, blistering. A minor bleeding. Pain and fainting. Disorder of surrounding tissue. Cartilage defect when treating the nose or ear. Conjunctival ectopy in eyelid treatment. Atrophic or hypotrophic scars.
