About Cryopen

CryoPenTM is an advanced cryotherapy innovation that is a fast, effective, safe and new solution for removal of skin imperfections. Procedures typically last from
5 to 25 seconds.

The CryoPenTM emits a fine jet of nitrous oxide under high pressure, which allows the clinician to work with millimetre precision. This destroys the tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid, 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.

Cosmetic procedures such as skin tags, milia and cherry angiomas are no longer being treated by many doctors on the NHS. 

How it works

First cycle – freeze

The applicator is held as close as possible to the skin imperfection and moved quickly towards and away from it. This could be from 1-30 seconds, depending on the size and depth.


After the first freeze cycle, the tissue is allowed to thaw for about 30 seconds.

Second cycle – freeze

Now the second freeze cycle will begin. The tissue will freeze faster than during the first freezing cycle.
