If skin imperfections affect your confidence, book a free consultation to come and discuss treatment options.

How does it work?

CryoPen therapy is a type of cryotherapy, a medical procedure in which skin imperfections are literally frozen and killed. Using a special device known as the CryoPen, a fine jet of nitrous oxide is targeted to the skin imperfection, causing its underlying tissue to crystalise, shatter, and then eventually die. The process usually takes around a few weeks.

A key benefit of our CryoPen treatments is its accuracy; the nitrous oxide is applied at millimetre precision, which means no surrounding healthy skin is affected.

Moles: all moles will need to have been checked by a medical professional within 6 months of a cryopen treatment. You will need to provide the details of the doctor who has done the check. Alternatively you can take advantage of the Map my Mole service provided at There You Glow aesthetics. Up to three moles will be photographed with our special dermatoscope camera and sent off for a full dermatology report in 48 hours.

Although procedure times vary depending on the size and depth of the targeted area, applications still only last between one to thirty seconds. You should be finished and ready to go in a couple of minutes.

Over time, the cells targeted in cryotherapy sessions will shrivel and die. It typically takes a few weeks for you to enjoy the final result, but this can vary depending on the size and type of the lesion that you want removed. For example, skin tags turn black at the base and normally drop off after four weeks. More information can be found on the Aftercare page

During the recovery period, as described above, you may experience some minor side-effects while the skin heals. These usually include sensitivity in the treated area and possible minor blistering, the latter of which can last for anything between a few hours to a few days. However, our cryotherapy device provides the best protection against blistering. You should always avoid touching or picking at the treated area following a procedure.

Please note that while the skin heals, the area may also appear darker in colour. This is natural and the skin will soon return to your natural tones.

Any discomfort with CryoPen Therapy is relatively minimal and brief. You will likely experience a slight stinging nettle-type sensation during treatment. This is caused by the nitrous oxide striking its target and only lasts a few seconds. However, some residual stinging may persist for a minute or two afterwards, which is perfectly natural.

You should hopefully find that one CryoPen treatment is enough. However, in some cases, a follow-up procedure may be required. For example, if a wart or verruca has not disappeared after four weeks, the area may need a subsequent round of treatment. This second treatment is complimentary.

Our cryotherapy procedures with the CryoPen are quick and efficient, and relatively risk-free. However, it may not be suitable for people with other conditions such as collagen and autoimmune disease and rheumatoid arthritis. It is also not suitable for women during pregnancy, nor on areas that have previously been treated with dermal fillers.
