Cryotherapy wart removal is a procedure to remove your wart by freezing it with liquid nitrogen. The process is called cryo-necrosis, tissue destruction by freezing.
How are tissues destroyed during Cryotherapy?
Tissue destruction occurs when cells are rapidly brought down to a temperature of at least –80°F and ice crystals will form. The ice crystals break the cell membrane, destroy the cell organelles and protein matrixes. Water then rushes into the surrounding area causing a blister and a disruption of the local blood supply.
How is cryosurgery better than other methods of removing skin lesions?
Cryotherapy requires no anesthesia and has less scarring than other techniques of skin lesion removal with minimal post-op care. Treatment goes quickly and can perfectly be integrated in daily practice.
