Skin Tags, Warts, Verrucas & Millia Removal


What is CryoPen™?

CryoPen is one of the latest, most innovative skin treatments currently on the market. Available at Aesthetics of Essex, it can be used to eliminate skin lesions and imperfections – that are unlikely to be removed by the NHS – and it comes hand-in-hand with a range of benefits. For example:

  • – it’s a quicker and more effective alternative to traditional cryotherapy
  • – it’s virtually painless and has very few side effects
  • – it’s an affordable option for most


Which skin imperfections can be treated with CryoPen?


Milia – CryoPen treatment has become a highly popular option for milia removal in Essex. Milia are small white bumps, which develop when skin flakes get trapped or keratin builds up under the surface of the skin. In some instances, they can be particularly stubborn and a specialised treatment – such as CryoPen milia removal – is required to get rid of them once and for all.

Cherry angiomas – Unless a cherry angioma bleeds or changes in shape, size or colour, they’re not usually a cause for concern. But they do have a reddish appearance and, as a result, people often choose to have them removed using specialist CryoPen treatment.

Warts and verrucas  – Although warts and verrucas don’t cause any harm, some people find them itchy, painful and embarrassing. That’s why, rather than waiting months (or even years) for them to go away on their own, many people now turn to CryoPen for verruca and wart removal in Essex.

Age spots  – Age spots are nothing to be concerned about; many people have them and treatment certainly isn’t necessary. However, because of their unattractive appearance, age spot removal is very popular – with many people using CryoPen treatment to achieve perfect youthful-looking skin.

Skin tags – Once again, skin tags are a common and harmless imperfection. They cause no pain or discomfort, but their appearance can often affect a person’s self-esteem and confidence levels. As such, skin tag removal using CryoPen treatment has become an increasingly popular option at our clinic.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does CryoPen treatment work?

Rather than using liquid nitrogen (like traditional cryotherapy procedures), CryoPen treatment uses a pressurised and superfine jet of nitrous oxide. This nitrous oxide freezes the inter-cellular fluid within the tissue, breaking down the cell membranes and eventually destroying the unwanted skin.

The CryoPen itself is very precise. It specifically targets the lesion, leaving the surrounding healthy tissue untouched – and as such, the procedure is quick, effective and virtually painless.

What does the procedure involve?

Before starting CryoPen treatment, our team will conduct a thorough analysis of the treatment area – taking into consideration your age and skin type, the location of the imperfection and its size. Based on this information, we can then advise on whether CryoPen is the best option for you.

The number of treatment stages required will depend on the surface area and thickness of the tissue. But, in most cases, at least two freezing cycles will be necessary to get the best results.

Essentially, the CryoPen is used to create controlled circular movements on the surface of the skin. These movements stay within the limits of the treatment area. The pen can be used to penetrate 1mm of tissue in 5 seconds, with a maximum freezing depth of 6mm. As such, the treatment can last for up to 30 seconds and its duration will depend upon the depth of the skin lesion itself.

Once the first freezing cycle is complete, the treatment area will be left to thaw (for 30 seconds) and dried with a tissue. The process will then be repeated for the second cycle of freezing.

Is CryoPen treatment painful?

Every client is different and we can never fully predict how you, personally, will experience the CryoPen treatment. But rest assured, most people find the procedure virtually pain-free.

You may feel a slight stinging sensation, as though a ballpoint pen is being pushed into the skin. This minor stinging can last for a few minutes after the treatment and, occasionally, a blister may form. However, it isn’t a cause for concern – and if you do happen to experience an unusually high level of discomfort, simply tell the clinician and they will stop the procedure immediately.

Will I need downtime?

Your skin may be tender and it could blister for 24 hours after the CryoPen treatment. However, this shouldn’t affect your day-to-day activities. There’s no need to take any time off work or rest at home. Most people are able to undergo the procedure and continue with their normal routine.

How quickly will I see the results of CryoPen treatment?

Following CryoPen treatment, it can take approximately 1-6 weeks for the treatment area to fully heal. The exact recovery time will depend on the depth and size of the imperfection or lesion. During this time, the skin’s appearance is likely to get worse – before it gets better. For example, it may become darker in colour (due to the dead cells) or start to flake away as the new skin regenerates.

It’s important to be patient. In most cases, people start to see an improvement around the 4-week mark. At that point, a follow-up visit is typically recommended – during which we can assess your response to the initial freezing cycles and decide whether further treatment sessions are necessary.

How much does CryoPen cost?

This depends on the type, quantity and severity of the skin imperfections and the number of freezing cycles that you require. Here at Aesthetics of Essex, we always strive to offer the most competitive rates – and, currently, our standard prices for CryoPen treatment are as follows:

Skin tag removal – £40

Wart removal – £80

Verrucae removal – £80

Pigment and age spot removal – £60

Milia removal – price varies depending on how many milia need to be removed

Is CryoPen treatment right for me?

Skin imperfections may not look very nice, but unless they’re a result of an underlying condition or causing you a problem, they won’t be removed by the NHS. Therefore, if you wish to get rid of a skin tag, wart, milia, age spots or cherry angiomas, private CryoPen treatment could be the solution.

Generally speaking, the procedure is suitable for most clients. But during your first consultation, we always conduct a thorough analysis of the skin imperfection. This gives us a chance to ascertain your suitability – and, if we don’t think CryoPen is the best option for you, we’ll let you know.

The procedure isn’t suitable for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. It also can’t be used by clients with auto-immune disorders or those who suffer from keloid scarring.

Here at Aesthetics of Essex, customer service is at the heart of everything we do and we always strive to achieve the best results. We’re skilled and experienced in CryoPen treatment and, over the years, we have helped countless clients to remove their unwanted skin imperfections and lesions.

Here is just one of many happy clients, F. Hope, who left us a glowing CryoPen review:

“I had several laser treatments for my sun spot with little success and spent a lot of money. A friend recommended that I pay a visit to Aesthetics of Essex and I am so glad I did. My advisor was very knowledgeable and I felt that I was in good hands. With one treatment of the CryoPen, my sun spot disappeared in one week. I am delighted and wished I had gone to them sooner.”


It is important to us that all our clients feel safe and in good hands when they come to Aesthetics of Essex.
