Frequently Asked Questions
Cryotherapy (also known as cryosurgery or cryoablation) uses freezing temperatures to destroy cancerous cells or abnormal skin lesions/growths. The Devonshire Clinic uses cryotherapy treatments to eliminate a range of skin lesions, including actinic keratoses (precancerous lesions associated with sun-damaged skin), viral warts, seborrhoeic keratosis (waxy or scaly lumpy growths on the face, neck, chest or back) and other damage to your skin.
The number of cryotherapy treatments you’ll need depends on the size and number of warts you have. Typically, patients need at least three to five cryotherapy treatments for the best results. Your dermatologist consultant at The Devonshire Clinic will be able to tell you how many sessions you’ll need during your initial consultation.

A whole host of benign lesions can be treated with cryotherapy. It is however most commonly used to remove actinic keratoses (pre-cancerous lesions found mainly on sun-damaged skin), viral warts, seborrhoeic keratosis and other benign lesions.
Cryotherapy can be easily performed at our dermatology clinic in Harley Street. It is usually applied using a spray gun.
Although cryotherapy can be slightly painful a local anaesthetic is not normally required. The procedure only takes a few seconds, although the exact time required depends on the thickness of the lesion being treated. Your dermatologist may repeat the process once the skin has thawed out.
Immediately after cryotherapy the treated skin will be red. A scab will usually develop over the next few days which will then drop off over the next few weeks. Although in the majority of cases the treated area will eventually look normal, discolouration and scarring are possible.
Sometimes, a lesion will require several cryotherapy treatments to achieve the desired outcome.
