AMP clinic offer cryotherapy treatments using a small hand held device that emits a fine jet of Nitrous Oxide under high pressure, which destroys the tissue being targeted 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 the healthy tissue. 

Cosmetic procedures such as skin tags, milia, warts and cherry anginomas are no longer being treated on the NHS.

What conditions can be treated?

Many different superficial skin lesions can be treated with cryotherapy including skin tags, milia, cherry anginoma, solar lentigo, warts, verrucae, sun damage and age spots. It is essential that a correct dignosis is made prior to treatment as we do not treat cancerous lesions. 

What will happen during your consultation?

You will see a practitioner or nurse depending on the lesion you would like treated. The area will then be thoroughly checked and you will be given details on the treatment, the cost and how many treatments may be required. 

Is the treatment painful?

There will be a pain sensation similar to a stinging nettleon the skin when the Nitrous Oxide reaches the bottom of the area. There might be a little residual stinging for a few minutes after treatment, this is normal. 

How long are cryotherapy treatments?

The duration of the treatment time will depend on the surface area and the thickness of the tissue being treated. Upon the clinical evaluation of the depth of the area, the practitioner will choose an application time between 1 to 30 seconds. 

How much will my treatment cost?

The cost of treatment is dependant on the size of the area being treated. As a guide we charge £50 for a singular lesion. 

How safe is Cryotherapy?

Cryotherapy is a relatively low risk procedure. It delivers a freeze directly to the area and not the healthy surrounding tissue. The cryotherapy device is both CE and FDA approved.
