Precision cryotherapy using a specialized Pen, Licensed by Health Canada to erase dark spots, skin tags and other bothersome lesions in seconds.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
High pressure nitrous oxide gas is released from the FreezPen. The applicator's tip creates a focused gas jet that can be easily targeted only at the lesion itself for maximal precision. The targeted tissue temperature drops to -89 degrees C ( the minimum threshold for cryonecrosis is approximately -60 degrees C) Ice immediately forms and expands inside the cells. High pressure ruptures the cell's membranes and the cells are destroyed. Care is taken to examine lesions following THE "ABCDE" RULE
If there is a suspicious looking lesion, you will be referred to a physician for a biopsy.
AFTER THE TREATMENT & THE HEALING PROCESS
During healing, dead cells are eliminated and the lesion shrinks over time. The damages tissue may become red and swollen or a temporary blister may appear. After accouple weeks the damaged tissue sheds to allow new healthy tissue to grow in the same area. Generally there is no special post-treatment care regime except application of a healing ointment (such as Aquaphor) to promote a more effective healing process. A follow up visit is scheduled after 2-3 weeks to determine if a second treatment is necessary.
