Frequently Asked Questions

How are tissues destroyed during Cryotherapy?

The Accurett Cryopen® emits a fine jet of carbon dioxide under pressure, allowing the therapist to work within a millimeter radius. This destroys the tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid, forming ice shards and crystals, which rupture the membrane thereby destroying the cell. This means that there is no collateral damage to the healthy tissue. It is so incredibly accurate and practical. And best of all mostly painless!

How long does the blister last after treatment?

It forms a blister between 2 to 24 hours after being frozen. Blisters take several days to dissolve. Once they break down, a crust forms over the lesion. Healing occurs from 1 to 6 weeks, dependent upon the depth of the freeze and the size of the lesion.

Describe the procedure?

During the procedure the area freezes and turns white. After this white area thaws a flushing occurs and the area turns red. Thawing is associated with a pinching sensation, as a weal is formed. This weal will typically turn into a blister, which may last for 3 to 5 days before scabbing. This scab falls off within 2 weeks. Depending on the extent of freeze, a new scab may form and repeat the process. The lesion will be completely healed in 2 to 6 weeks. After primary healing occurs, the area will be lighter than the surrounding area due to loss of melanocytes.

How is cryotherapy better than other methods of removing skin lesions?

It requires no anaesthesia and has less scarring than other techniques and minimal post-op care.

Will there be scarring?

The treatment leaves the least amount of scarring of any form of lesion treatment, because it causes the least damage to the connective tissue.

Is there pain involved?

There is some tingling with the initial freezing, but most have an anaesthetic effect because of the extreme freezing temperatures. Some have mild discomfort for the first day after procedure.

How permanent is the cure?

For most lesions Cryotherapy is a permanent removal. Some lesions are harder to remove than others. In more delicate areas a shorter freeze time with repeat procedures may be required to get a final result with least damage to surrounding skin.

What does this cost?

R200 per lesion, and R650 if there is more than one lesion to remove, or per 15 minute period.
