CryoPen

CryoPen is an advanced cryotherapy innovation that is a fast, effective and safe new solution for removal of skin imperfections. Procedures typically last from 5-30 seconds, emitting a fine jet of Nitrous Oxide under high pressure, which allows the clinician to work with millimetre precision. This destroys the tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid, forming ice shards and crystals which rupture the membrane, destroying the cell.

CryoPen offers the ideal treatment for:

  • Skin Tags
  • Solar Lentigo
  • Age Spots
  • Millia
  • Warts
  • Cherry Angioma
  • Viral Verrucae
