The area to be treated will be cleaned and disinfected, and carefully assessed. Liquid nitrogen will be applied to the moles with our Cryopen (a patented applicator). The nitrogen freezes the cells. This causes terminal damage to the mole cells and they die. The treated area will initially burn and then feel itchy, and will appear red and swollen. After 24hrs a scab or crust forms over the treated site. After treatment, your doctor will apply an ointment to the area and cover it with a dressing for a few days. It is important to follow your Doctor’s post-procedural guidelines. Avoid picking at the scabs as this may cause infection and scarring. The scab usually falls off after 2 weeks. This treatment is superficial and often requires a second treatment after 2 weeks.
