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. James Lacey 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. James Lacey 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. James Lacey 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. James Lacey 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. James Lacey 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.
