What is skin cryotherapy ?
It is the use of local freezing for controlled destruction or removal of living tissues by “no touch” technique. Liquid nitrogen gas is used to freeze, and then gently but effectively destroy unwanted lesions such as warts, keratoses and other such growths. It can be used safely on the face, and children as well can undergo the treatment.
Pre- and post-procedure instructions

- Apply an antibiotic cream twice a day till the scabs fall off
Throbbing pain may be experienced in the treated area for a few days after the procedure. In some cases, blister formation might occur, but it will subside in a few days.
