Cryosurgery is a method of destroying pathologically changed tissues, which is known for a long time. During the procedure, very low temperature is generated which leads to freezing of water within tissues resulting in their death. In the next stage the treated tissues undergo dissociating and new epidermis appears in their place.
Cancers and precancerous skin conditions:
Depending on indications for undergoing the treatment: a tendency for appearance of keloids.
The best result is achieved by using the method of binal cryonics of a change (cryonics, thawing and another cryonics). Thanks to a wide choice of probe’s ends it is possible to perform precise treatment regardless of its size and location. It shall be remembered, though, that a choice of a proper end as well as the time of cryonics depends on a type of a change, its location and the condition of patient’s skin.
Post treatment indications:
Viral wards, seborrheic wards, venereal warts, solar keratosis, surface skin cancers – changes can disappear even after one treatment, though usually there is a need to repeat the treatment after a fortnight.
Keloids, nodular prurigo – usually a few treatments are needed with the breaks of 14-30 days
Alopecia areata – a series of minimum 5-10 treatments is needed
Time: depending on the amount of changes 10-30 minutes
Complementary treatments: curettage, fractional laser CO2, pharmacological treatment
