Skin Tags, Warts, Verrucas & Millia Removal


    What is CryoPen™?

    CryoPen™ is an advanced cryotherapy innovation that is a fast, effective, safe and a new solution for removal of skin imperfections. … Cosmetic procedures are no longer being treated by many doctors on the NHS.

    CryoPen can eliminate skin tags, warts, verrucaes, milia, cherry anginomas, sun and age spots.  It works by emitting a fine jet of nitrous oxide under high pressure, which allows us to work with millimetre precision. This freezes and destroys the tissue around the lesion, forming ice shards and crystals which rupture the membrane, thereby destroying the cell. That means there will be no collateral damage to healthy tissue. It’s so incredibly accurate and practical.

    Which skin imperfections can be treated with CryoPen?

    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.

    Milia – Although they can appear anywhere on the body, millia are usually grouped together on the nose, cheeks and chin. They are small white bumps, which develop when skin flakes get trapped or keratin builds up under the surface of the skin and they usually resolve on their own over time. In some instances, however, millia can be particularly stubborn and specialised treatments – such as cryopen – is required to get rid of them once and for all.

    Cherry angiomas – Essentially, a cherry angioma is a red mole. They are a common type of skin growth that can develop on most areas of the body. Unless a cherry angioma bleeds or changes in shape, size or colour, they are not usually a cause for concern; however, they do have a reddish appearance and people often like to have them removed using specialist cryopen treatment.

    Warts and verrucas  – Most people will experience a wart or verruca at some point in their life. They are small hard lumps that appear on the skin and, although they don’t cause any harm, some people find them itchy, painful and embarrassing. This is why, rather than waiting months (or even years) for them to go away on their own, many people now turn to cryotherapy for warts and verrucas and seek the professional help of our clinic.

    Sun/Age Spots  – These tend to present themselves as flat brown or black marks that appear on the surface of the skin and they are typically found on the face, hands, shoulders, upper back and forearms. Doctors don’t really understand why they develop, but they do know they are caused by the excess production of melanin or skin pigment and they are probably the result of skin ageing and frequent exposure to the sun.

    Procedure Time? Dependent on skin lesion averagely 5 – 30 seconds

    Please be aware, if the lesion is large, you may find that CryoPen simply wont remove it. In this case, our Surgeon can excise the lesion at a cost of £350.

      “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.”

      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.

      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 – From £45

      Wart removal – £95

      Verrucae removal – £95

      Pigment and age spot removal – From £85

      Mole removal – £110

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

      All prices include one free of charge to up if needed.

      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.
