How Does It Differ From Liquid Nitrogen?

While liquid nitrogen works at a colder temperature (-196°C), compared to CryoPen’s nitrous oxide, which works at -89°C … the extreme temperature that liquid nitrogen works at is not required.

Cell destruction in all benign tissues is achieved at -62°C, therefore nitrous oxide is sufficient to destroy any lesion without risking damage to the surrounding tissue.

The excessive power of liquid nitrogen is not required and may well be an obstacle when treating verrucae and molluscum contagiosum in children, and when the treatment of aesthetic imperfections is needed.


Why You Should Invest In CryoPen For your Clinic?

If you don’t have cryotherapy on your list of treatments, CryoPen is sure to be a welcome addition to your list of services. With the benefit of a short time spent to both master CryoPen and use the CryoPen in treatment, it adds up to become a worthwhile investment sure to return on both the time and money you put into it.

The CryoPen and treatment it offers can save you and your clients time with in-house treatment. This means less referring to other practices, saving both of you time and in particular keeping the money in your own pocket. With very little chance of your average client needing more than two treatments, this attracts clientele who have very little time on their hands and a list of problems you can now fix for them.

The upkeep of your CryoPen is very low-cost. The cartridges are easily disposable, easy to replenish, and has very minimal preparation time. After removing your CryoPen from its temperature maintaining dock you have up to ten minutes of use, ideal when you won’t be holding the CryoPen to your clients face for longer than 60 seconds.

The CryoPen device is ideal to take from room to room or between clinics. This makes it the perfect add-on treatment as it does not require its own treatment room. This means practitioners can add a CryoPen treatment into other facial/body treatments with ease.


How Is CryoPen Able To Treat A Variety Of Skin Lesions?

The CryoPen device includes multiple interchangeable applicators. The various applicators respond to the different sizes of lesions that practitioners will be confronted with.

Treatment of the healthy tissue can easily be avoided due to the applicator’s pin-point precision, which makes it a stress-free procedure. When necessary, practitioners can select an applicator to allow them to carry out deeper treatments which will promote more effective results for larger lesions and reduce time-consuming, repeat visits.

 Mostly after treatments, you will not be able to notice where the skin problem was located, however, there are some instances that you may be able to notice really small white spots, this is perfectly normal and healthy and may diminish over time.

Cryotherapy will allow for less blood in the affected area of the skin, reduce redness, inflammations, puffiness, irritability and the list goes on.

All of this simply translates into rejuvenated skin that you can feel good about, after the cryotherapy stages of healing.

These types of professional treatments are much more recommended and safe than freezing age spots at home.


Benefits For Your Patients

If you’ve ever found yourself googling ‘get rid of wart overnight’, ‘get rid of mole overnight’, or even how to get rid of sun spots, this is the treatment for you. If your clinic offers your patients Cryopen, you could be offering them a dream come true!

The simplest form of cryosurgery relatable involves no use of dangerous cryogenic gases or liquids. You can offer immediate treatment without referral, and no anaesthetic will need to be used. The treatment is extremely safe, with pinpoint accuracy it will only affect the targeted skin and not any healthy surrounding area. The treatments pain level has been described as if someone was poking your skin with a ball point pen.

Recovery is simple and at its latest can take up to 6 weeks, more commonly less than this. After treatment is not needed however a blister may occur 24 hours after treatment in the affected area that will clear up between 1 to 6 weeks.

The services you could provide your clients with that are extremely time efficient and relatively painless is as follows: 

Wart Removal


Warts come in all shapes and sizes, some are skin coloured whilst others are a little darker. You can find one by itself or an area with several, the CryoPen was designed to tackle all kinds of warts fast and effectively.

The CryoPen performs to have the wart skin tags mitigated and removed in as few treatments as possible so you can deliver high-quality treatments and still receive value for your business by administering efficiently and maximising profits.

This is much more targeted and advanced results than a standard cryotag skin tag remover. This allows for complete isolation of the treatment area and direct impact through nitrous oxide.

Skin-tag Removal

A skin-tag is a small flap of tissue that hangs off the skin by a connecting stalk. More likely to occur in women, it is also associated with weight gain and aging. They can be found on the neck, armpit, groin, under the breasts, or on eyelids.
The CryoPen allows precise targeting to freeze the skin-tag. It destroys the tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid and destroying the cell. After treatment the skin-tag will scab over and fall off within one to two weeks.

Cherry Angioma Removal

Also known as cherry hemangioma, or red moles, are skin growths common in people over the age of 30. Broken blood vessels cause the red discoloration, although the cause is unknown and could possibly be genetic.
Cherry angiomas can be removed overnight! If the angioma is on the smaller side, it only takes one session with the CryoPen with no risk or aftercare needed. Larger angiomas may reduce in size and take on a scab that may heal or you may require a second session.

Sun-spots Removal

Also known as skin-spots, caused by sun exposure, UV radiation from the sun causes the melanocytes in our skin to multiply causing areas of darkened sun-spots.
The great thing about the CryoPen is treatment can happen the day of consultation! Your sun-spots can be removed in one session. Nitrous oxide is evenly sprayed on the area for five seconds, the skins top layer will freeze. After the session scabs will appear and fall off, the only after-care you may need is a mild analgesic ointment.

Milia Removal

Milia are small white or yellow domes, typically occur on the nose or cheeks. One is called a milium cyst and multiple are called milia, caused by keratin trapped under the skin. Also associated with damage to the skin such as burns, blisters, or sun damage.

The CryoPen can treat milia relatively quick. It’s a painless jet of cold air applied to the skin for up to one minute!

Dermatofibroma Removal

A dermatofibroma is the name we give to a knot of fibrous tissue that occurs in the skin. They look like firm bumps and like rubbery balls sitting under the surface of the skin. It’s caused by an overgrowth of multiple different cell types under the skin. Often develop after a small trauma like a puncture from a splinter.
With the CryoPen a mild white frost will form evenly over the lesion. After the first initial freeze let it thaw for 30 seconds, before applying a second frost. Following this the tissue turns reddish and inflamed due to interstitial bleeding. Typically, two weeks after treatment the lesion should be removed!
