Cryotherapy involves the use of liquefied nitrous oxide to freeze and destruct unwanted tissue. It is appropriate for a variety of dermatologic conditions including: acne, keloids, verruca vulgaris (warts), and keratosis actinica. The lesion is frozen to the cellular level. No anesthetic is required for the cryotherapy procedure. After the procedure, a scab will form over the treated area and peel away within 1-3 weeks. The number of treatments required is dependent on the size and depth of the lesion.
