When the NHS aren’t able to treat your skin blemish – Crystal Rose can help!

With the NHS tightening its belt with new cuts, one of the treatments that’s been significantly restricted is the removal of benign skin lesions - now only being performed on the NHS ‘only when specific clinical criteria are met.’

As a nurse, I understand the impact that these funding cuts are having both on the staff and those we treat. Whilst certain benign skin lesions or blemishes may not meet this set criteria, they can still be of real concern for people – whether this be due to confidence of discomfort. Skin tags, in particular, aren’t just unsightly - they can appear in awkward places catch or rub on your clothes, and even bleed.

If the NHS don’t consider them worth funding, what can you do?

Cryotherapy and skin blemishes

Well, there is a solution, and it’s one of my all-time most popular treatments for this very reason.

Cryotherapy is a really effective, practically pain-free way to remove blemishes like:

● Skin tags

● Freckles

● Age spots

● Milia

● Warts

● Cherry angioma

● Viral verrucae

The treatment involves using a special pen called a CryoPen™ that lets me target the areas I’m treating with absolute precision. In simple terms, the treatment freezes off the skin tags or other blemishes, and it can all be done in a matter of seconds, so it’s quick and painless as well as highly effective. The CryoPen™ has taken 13 years to develop and it’s considered to be the most advanced on the market.

How does the CryoPen™ work?

The CryoPen™ works by producing a very fine jet of nitrous oxide under high pressure, which freezes the fluid in the cells, creating ice crystals that rupture and destroy the cell membranes. Because the pen is so precise (to a millimetre) there’s no damage to surrounding tissues and cells, and the blemish that you want removed will just disappear in a short period of time post-treatment.

Cryotherapy is a safe procedure but as with most cosmetic treatments there are a few potential, minor side effects, like changes in skin pigmentation and nerve sensitivity. These don’t happen often and usually return to normal over time. If you’re worried about anything, just talk to me before your treatment about anything concerning you.

The treatment is so quick it can be fitted in during a lunch break or quickly after work. There’s no downtime, and in most cases only one treatment will be needed (obviously, there are exceptions for larger, more complex cases).

If you have any skin tags or blemishes that you want to disappear, book your cryotherapy appointment now online, or if you’d like to discuss your suitability then book a skin consultation which will be deducted from the cost of your treatment. Alternatively, pop me a message through the website or my social channels.
