Cryotherapy is a technique that uses an extremely cold liquid or instrument to freeze and destroy abnormal skin cells that require removal. The technique has been in use since the turn of the century, but modern techniques have made it widely available to primary care doctors such as Hart Family Care in Ashland, KY. This technique is also often referred to as "cryosurgery".
Cryotherapy is a simple office procedure utilizing liquid nitrogen, delivered by a special tip application, to freeze epidermal lesions. It is widely used for many dermatologic and gynecological conditions such as warts, actinic keratoses, brown pigment lesions, and Human Papilloma Virus (HPV).
