Cryosurgery uses liquid nitrogen (freezing) to destroy abnormal skin tissue or diseased tissue. This technique is frequently used on actinic keratoses (pre-cancerous skin lesions), warts, acrochordons (skin tags) and seborrheic keratoses
Cryosurgery is a minimally invasive procedure in which patients usually experience redness and minor or moderate localized pain. Pain can be relieved by Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen. A blister may occur but usually scabs over and peels away. If they become red, infected, and/or warm to the touch, please call our office.
