Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy comes in many forms: it is the use of cold and freezing techniques to treat the body.

We here at K8 Aesthetics use cryotherapy to safely and effectively remove pigmentation, skin tags, warts, and Verruca .
Cryotherapy works by causing the water in the skin cells to freeze. As this happens the water expands and then fractures the frozen cell walls.

3 stages of the treatment

Inflammation

Treatment process causes the cells to be injured by freezing. This causes an increase in blood flow to the area showing a reddening of the area. This happens immediately but usually settles within 60 minutes. On rare occasions, it may cause a blister. There may be some itching at this stage due to the release of histamine into the area.

Proliferation

Within 24-48 hours after the treatment a small crust will form as the healing process continues

Tissue Remodelling

As the cells come through to the surface of the skin they will be remodelled and appear as ‘normal skin’. This final process varies from person to person.
