What is it

Cryotherapy is called cold treatment with the use of liquid nitrogen and consists in lowering the temperature of the tissues in order to remove the lesion.

The course of the procedure

Topical therapy involves the use of very low temperatures. The applicator, applied in short pulses to the affected area, freezes the cells, which leads to their destruction. First, we feel a sharp chill, and then warmth.

Recommendations after procedure

At the place of application of the treatment, a scab is formed, after a dozen or so days, after the scab has fallen off, the pinkish area can be smeared with the recommended cream in order to accelerate the healing process. In the case of wart removal, a follow-up visit is recommended, as more than one procedure may be required to obtain a complete cure.
