CryoPen™ is an advanced cryotherapy innovation using extreme cold that is a fast, effective, safe solution for removal of skin imperfections.

What does it treat?

Cosmetic procedures such as skin tags, milia, age spots and cherry angiomas which are no longer being treated by many doctors on the NHS, can all be painlessly removed.

The benefits

  • CryoPen therapy takes far less time; with treatment sessions lasting less than 2 minutes per lesion.
  • No anaesthesia is required and it is virtually painless
  • It is one of the least invasive lesion treatments on the market
  • It is used in the treatment of virtually any benign skin lesion.
Cryopen - Cheek-Before

Cheek lesion – before

How does it work?

The CryoPen™ emits a fine jet of nitrous oxide under high pressure, which allows us to work with millimetre precision. This destroys the tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid, forming ice shards and crystals which rupture the membrane, thereby destroying the cell. That means there will be no collateral damage to healthy tissue. It’s so incredibly accurate and practical.

First cycle – freeze

The applicator pen is held as close as possible to the skin imperfection and moved quickly towards and away from it. This could be from 1-30 seconds, depending on the size and depth.


Cheek lesion – after


After the first freeze cycle, the tissue is allowed to thaw for about 30 seconds.

Second cycle – freeze

Now the second freeze cycle will begin. The tissue will freeze faster than during the first freezing cycle.

After treatment, it is advisable to leave the area uncovered as this speeds up the healing process. However, you may want apply a simple dressing or plaster if there is a chance that the lesion may get wet, rubbed or aggravated in any way.
