A verruca is a type of wart caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV).
It usually appears as a bump or small lump on the skin and can be painful when touched.
Verrucas may appear alone or in clusters and can be located anywhere on the body.
Most verrucas are harmless, though some types of HPV have been linked to certain cancers.
Cryopen Ramsgate is a device used to freeze off warts, including verruca (plantar warts).
The Cryopen works by spraying a fine jet of nitrous oxide onto the surface of the wart.
The nitrogen gas causes the temperature to drop below freezing, which then destroys the cells in the wart, causing it to fall off.
Depending on the size of the wart, multiple treatments may be required for complete removal.
1. Quick and effective treatment of verrucas
2. Minimal risk of infection or scarring
3. Low risk of side effects
4. No need for general anaesthetic or other medications
5. Little to no downtime required after the procedure
6. Relatively painless procedure
7. FDA approved and safe.
Cryopen verruca removal is a treatment for wart removal using the Cryopen, a handheld device that uses nitrous oxide to freeze off the wart. The device is placed directly on the wart and then pressurized nitrous oxide is released to freeze the tissue in and around the wart. This technique can be used to remove warts from any area of the body, including fingers, toes, face or genital areas.
Cryopen verruca removal works by freezing the verruca using a precisely controlled stream of nitrous oxide. The treatment is quick and easy, and any pain experienced is minimal. The cold temperature that Cryopen produces immediately forms an ice ball around the lesion, which, when removed, carries away the unwanted tissue. The entire procedure usually takes less than five minutes to complete.
Answer: Yes, there are risks associated with cryopen verruca removal. These risks include infection, pain, and scarring. Cryotherapy can also cause temporary discoloration of the skin around the treated area.
The cost of cryopen verruca removal varies depending on the size and number of verrucas being removed. Generally, cryopen verruca removal starts from £150-200 per session.
Cryopen verruca removal is not typically painful, as the device utilizes a cold spray of nitrous oxide to freeze and remove the verruca. Some patients may experience mild discomfort during the procedure, but overall it is considered to be relatively painless.
Cryopen verruca removal typically takes between 10 and 15 minutes.
It can take several weeks for the verruca to completely resolve after cryopen verruca removal. Following treatment, you may notice an improvement in a few days or up to a few weeks. However, it is important to keep in mind that another treatment may be needed for complete resolution.
Yes, there are potential side effects associated with cryopen verruca removal. These can include pain, bleeding, infection, scarring, and changes in skin pigmentation.
The number of treatments necessary to completely remove a verruca can vary based on the size, location, and severity of the verruca. Generally speaking, it may take up to several months of regular treatment with non-surgical methods before a verruca is completely removed. In some cases, multiple treatments may be required over an extended period of time. A dermatologist or other healthcare professional can provide further information about how many treatments you may need.
