Cryotherapy with Liquid Nitrogen
Updated: Aug 7, 2019
This treatment applies liquid nitrogen (-196oC) to the skin in order to freeze off surface skin lesions. The treatment may need to be repeated on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis depending on the depth of the lesion. There will be some post treatment redness for a few hours following the treatment.
Conditions commonly treated by this modality include:
- Viral warts
- Actinic keratoses
