What is Cyrotherapy?
It is a process of rapidly freezing tissue in order to destroy skin disorders. Cyrotherapy has been used successfully in podiatry practices for over 80 years. The practice has adopted a new and very innovative solution for this established treatment. It is fast, safe and very effective.
How The CyroProbe Works
During 5-30 seconds, depending on the depth of the lesion, the CyroProbe sprays a very cold yet precise flow of nitrous oxide directly on the wart. The freezing power of the CyroProbe penetrates fast to the bottom of the lesion. That results in effective treatment with only very little discomfort. Especially with (plantar) warts the success of this treatment is unmatched.
After the treatment there might be a little residual stinging during a few minutes. Occasionally a blister might form and persists for a few hours. There are no restrictions for bathing or swimming.
There is an increasing need to remove (plantar) wars for cosmetic reasons or medical necessity for the HPV-infection to be removed. In our clinic we have adopted an innovative procedure to treat these lesions by freezing.
These are the advantages:
- Most are covered by insurance
- Our treatments are fast, safe and effective
- Most patients report only little discomfort
