Dermapen Cryo treatments are a low-risk way to address skin lesions or blemishes with minimal discomfort and no downtime. Dr. Lloyd Van Wyck and his team are committed to providing patients with non-invasive and convenient treatment options at our Ottawa, ON, office. Whether you need sun spot treatment or treatment for other skin blemishes such as warts or skin tags, Dr. Van Wyck can address your concerns using Dermapen Cryo.
Conditions Dermapen Cryo Can Address
Cryotherapy is a non-invasive therapy that uses extreme temperatures to halt the cell growth of skin lesions. Dermapen Cryo allows targeted treatment of skin lesions. This therapy uses nitrous oxide and freezing temperatures to treat specific skin conditions, such as:
- Sun spots
- Skin lesions or warts
- Skin tags
- Certain benign moles
The treatment is safe for all skin types, but patients with darker skin may require more treatments to eliminate blemishes completely. Prior to treatment, Dr. Van Wyck will evaluate your skin and analyze any blemishes you want to address. He can also determine how many treatments you may need to eliminate your sun spots or other blemishes. If Dr. Van Wyck determines that you are not a suitable candidate for this treatment, he may recommend a number of other non-surgical procedures.
What to Expect during Sun Spot Treatment
The Dermapen Cryo is a small device that looks similar to a pen. The tip of the pen allows Dr. Van Wyck to deliver the cryotherapy directly to the sun spot or skin lesion. Because the treatment involves minimal discomfort, anesthetic and numbing creams are generally unnecessary.
Dermapen Cryo treatments are a low-risk way to address skin lesions or blemishes with minimal discomfort and no downtime.
The length of treatment will vary depending on the thickness and size of the blemish. Each application ranges from one to 30 seconds. You may notice some stinging for a couple minutes following treatment.
In some cases, a blister may form over the treatment area, but this usually subsides after a few hours. Two to four weeks following the initial treatment, you will need to meet with Dr. Van Wyck so he can determine if another treatment is needed.
Benefits of Dermapen Cryo
Dermapen Cryo treatments are relatively low risk and safe for all areas of the body. The pen-like device provides superior precision, allowing Dr. Van Wyck to avoid nearby healthy tissue. Treatment typically takes only a few minutes, and you can usually return to your normal activities immediately after each session. After just a few treatments, patients could notice significant improvements in their skin. Dermapen Cryo can safely remove all pathological tissue without the need for surgery, so there is no risk of scarring. At the end of treatment, you could enjoy beautiful, blemish-free skin.
