Skin lesions, though typically benign, are usually undesired. While at-home, over-the-counter solutions exist for lesions such as warts. You can expect better and faster results when you utilize a dermatological method.
For issues like skin tags, warts, and other surface skin lesions, cryotherapy can be an incredibly effective and relatively safe method to clinically address those issues. Learn more about how cryotherapy can help you.
How Cryotherapy Works
Cryotherapy utilizes extreme cold, typically in the form of liquid nitrogen, to significantly lower the temperature of cells. These cells are subjected to such intense cold that their functioning is inhibited, and they die. Because of how specific the application is, the cold is administered primarily to the intended area, and surrounding tissue is left alone.
Cryotherapy is safe enough to be an outpatient procedure, typically taking around a minute to perform, depending on the area or areas being treated.
What Can It Be Used For
Cryotherapy can be utilized for a variety of surface skin lesions and abnormal growths, such as:
- Actinic keratosis, also known as solar keratosis
- Skin tags
- Keloid scars
Make sure you speak to the providers at Georgia Dermatology Partners to learn how cryotherapy can help treat your skin.
