Cryotherapy involves the application of cryogen to freeze the skin tag’s and skin lesion cells rapidly. The extreme cold causes the cells to crystallize and die, leading to the eventual shedding of the skin tag/skin lesion. This procedure is safe, minimally painful and typically leaves little to no scarring, making it an attractive option for those seeking a quick and effective solution for unwanted skin growths.
The Cryotherapy Experience at a Spa
When you decide to undergo cryotherapy for skin tag/lesion removal at Joshua Tree, the process is straightforward and conducted by our trained professionals. Here’s what you can expect during your spa visit :
Consultation and Evaluation: At your initial appointment, a qualified professional will examine the area you wish to remove. They will assess the size, location and number of skin tags/lesion to determine if cryotherapy is the appropriate course of action for your specific case.
Preparing for the Treatment: Once the decision is made to proceed with cryotherapy, the spa professional will cleanse the area around the skin tags/lesion to ensure it’s free from any oils or lotions that could interfere with the procedure.
Cryotherapy Application: Using a cryogen spray or a cotton-tipped applicator, the spa professional will precisely apply the Freezpen to the skin tags/lesion. You may experience a brief stinging or burning sensation during this process, but it usually subsides quickly.
Duration of the Treatment: Cryotherapy for skin tag/lesion removal is a relatively quick procedure, typically lasting only a few seconds to a minute, depending on the number and size of the skin tags being treated.
Post-Treatment Care: After cryotherapy, the treated area might appear red or swollen, and a small blister may form. This is a normal part of the healing process. Our team will provide you with post-treatment instructions, which may include keeping the area clean and dry, avoiding picking or scratching the treated area and applying an ointment if necessary.
Results and Recovery: Over the following days or weeks, the treated skin tags will gradually darken and fall off, revealing smoother skin underneath. It’s essential to avoid sun exposure during the healing process and to follow any specific aftercare advice provided by the spa professional.
