A cryotherapy (liquid nitrogen removal) is the most effective and safe method of treatment of cutaneous neoplasms (papillomas, warts, moles etc.) in modern dermatology.
The reason for popularity of cryotherapy is not only in its efficiency and safeness, but also in its cosmetic results, which are higher than when using other methods of treatment. The cryotherapy allows treating benign, precancerous and malignant skin lesions in the whole body.
INDICATIONS FOR CRYOTHERAPY
The cryotherapy is effective in case of many dermatological problems, among which:
- skin pigmentation;
- genital warts;
- water warts;
- sarcoidosis etc.
The dermatologists of Oxford Medical clinic successfully apply the cryotherapy for treatment of certain forms of the basal cell carcinoma, the most widespread form of skin cancer.
The cryotherapy is an ideal method for treatment of eyelid lesions, as it does not injure lacrimal ducts. In total, the procedure is suitable for treatment of any of body areas.
HOW IS CRYOTHERAPY PERFORMED?
The cryotherapy in Oxford Medical clinic is performed by using the liquid nitrogen, which is perfectly suitable for treatment thanks to the low boiling temperature (-196˚C).
The affected skin areas are cooled down to the temperature of -50° С — -60° С; it leads to destruction of neoplasms. The depth and degree of freezing are determined by the dermatologist, who performs the procedure through examination, palpation and measurement of the temperature of affected skin area.
The procedure is painless; that is why it does not require anesthesia – the patient feels only coldness in the treated area. After the procedure, the treated skin is restored within 2-4 weeks, depending on the individual features and concrete disease. During this period, the skin redness and exfoliation may occur in treated area – this is the process of exfoliation of old cells and formation of new, healthy ones.
