Cryotherapy is a treatment method involving the use of liquefied nitrogen to destroy abnormal tissues. The liquefied nitrogen produces extreme cold temperatures. As opposed to conventional surgery, the outcome of cryosurgery entails a lower pain intensity and shorter recovery period.
cryosurgery with cryoprobe®
Cryosurgery with Cryoprobe® is an innovative procedure offered at The Firm Medspa. It is a minimally-invasive treatment that uses extreme cold temperatures to freeze and destroy abnormal tissue including tumors, warts, skin lesions, and other growths. Cryosurgery has grown in popularity as a safe alternative to traditional surgical procedures.
At The Firm Medspa, cryosurgery is performed using the Cryoprobe® device. This handheld applicator contains a very precise nozzle that applies intense cold directly to the targeted area in order to freeze it without damaging surrounding healthy tissue. Afterward, the body’s natural healing process will take over and dispose of any affected cells or tissues.
One of the primary benefits of cryosurgery with Cryoprobe® is that it typically requires no anesthesia. This makes it an appealing procedure for those who do not want to take on the risks associated with general anesthesia. Additionally, since there are no incisions or sutures involved in this type of procedure, a patient’s recovery time and post-procedural discomfort are greatly minimized.
The Cryoprobe® can also treat small and large lesions alike, allowing for greater accuracy than some other methods used in cryosurgical procedures. During treatment, a small portion of the lesion is frozen at a time to ensure that all affected areas receive even cooling. Afterward, the physician will inspect the area and repeat the freezing process if necessary.
