Liquid Nitrogen Therapy

Cryotherapy is the use of extreme cold to freeze and remove abnormal tissue. Doctors use it to treat many skin conditions (including warts and skin tags) and some cancers, including prostate, cervical and liver cancer. This treatment is also called cryoablation. It’s often used to treat skin lesions, which are skin growths or patches that don’t look like the skin around them. The lesions can be benign (not cancerous). Healing takes 1-3 weeks, after which the skin may look perfectly normal or slightly lighter in colour. Contact our office immediately if oozing from the site or if the site becomes thickened or raised.

For Children: the liquid nitrogen is so cold it stings like frostbite or feels like an ice cube stuck to your skin. As the skin thaws, it may feel hot or burning. For better results, the wart should be treated twice if tolerated by your child. This treatment can be uncomfortable, so your child may cry.
