Cryotherapy Blemish Removal
Cryotherapy Blemish Removal Services for Ipswich
CryoPen - the professional blemish removal treatment - Cryotherapy is a safe and highly effective method of freezing and removing benign skin lesions such as sunspots and liver spots, seborrheic keratosis, skin tags, warts and verrucae.
The CryoPen uses high-pressured liquid nitrous oxide to destroy the tissue rapidly and with little-to-no residual stinging. This highly effective, popular treatment does not require anaesthetic or consultation and is a convenient choice for clients due to it being a very quick treatment with minimal aftercare.
Cosmetic conditions such as skin tags, milia and warts are no longer being treated by many doctors on the NHS, but for many still provide so much discomfort or self consciousness, so with my Cryotherapy Treatment you can now have these removed safely at both my Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds clinics.

Thanks to the advanced technology used during my Cryotherapy Treatment, there are a number of benefits for patients:
Pinpoint accuracy (treats just the targeted skin blemish and not healthy surrounding tissue)
Safe and proven technology
Treats blemishes from 1mm to 10mm in size
Safe for use on face and close to eyes
What to Expect from Cryotherapy
Before and during cryotherapy treatment
Before you visit our Ipswich (at Encore Wellness Centre) or Bury St Edmunds (at Heritage Beauty & Wellness) clinics for cryotherapy treatment, it is important that you do not use retinoids, exfoliating acids (AHAs, BHAs and PHAs) or physical exfoliants for 48 hours prior to treatment.
Don't use fake tan or gradual tanner for at least two weeks before, and avoid laser or IPL treatments for two weeks beforehand.
During treatment, highly pressurised liquid nitrous oxide is used to destroy skin tissue. It works by causing cryogenic cell death: killing the unwanted cells with extremely cold temperatures. CryoPen treatment is relatively pain-free, with most of our patients experiencing a mild stinging sensation for only seconds.
After cryotherapy treatment
Due to the accuracy and technology of the CryoPen, less aftercare is needed than with other blemish removal treatments.
The treated area normally heals quickly, with minimal issues.
For 48-72 hours after treatment at our Ipswich or Bury St Edmunds clinics, it is important that you do not sunbathe or use other heat treatments such as sunbeds, sauna or steam rooms. This includes, if possible, hot baths and showers.
Please make sure to avoid applying makeup, soap, perfumed products or heavy moisturisers to the treated area.
Do not touch or cleanse the area or pick at any scabs that may form.
After cryotherapy treatment, it isn't uncommon to experience some redness, swelling or blistering. This may last anywhere from a few hours to 48 hours post-treatment.
Regardless of the weather, after your appointment, please make sure to use broad spectrum SPF on the treated area if it is exposed.
Total skin healing can take up to 3 months.
We recommend scheduling a follow-up appointment around four weeks after your treatment session to determine if further treatment will be required.
