A wart is a small growth with a rough texture that can appear anywhere on the body. It can look like a solid blister or a small cauliflower. Warts are caused by viruses in the human papillomavirus (HPV) family. The appearance of a wart depends on its location on the body and the thickness of the skin. Palmar warts appear on the hand. Plantar warts affect the feet. People with a weakened immune system are more likely to have warts.
Dermapen™ Cryotherapy delivers a fine, targeted, ultra-cold mist (temperature -89 degrees Celsius) of nitrous oxide gas at a high pressure to effortlessly and painlessly treat a variety of unwanted skin lesions. The pinpoint accuracy of a cryo pen provides greater precision and comfort (compared with liquid nitrogen therapy), creating greater treatment versatility and results. Treatments are fast, comfortable and effective for imperfections found on facial and body skin, making it the perfect treatment for freezing warts and skin tags.
The longer the mist is sprayed onto a lesion with the cryo pen, the deeper the absorption and active penetration. Multi-treatment tips enable versatile precision to treat a variety of lesion sizes and depths. Unlike traditional Cryotherapy, the tip does not directly touch the lesion. This enables far greater comfort, accelerated healing and a more precise delivery system. The nitrous oxide treats damaged tissue by freezing inter cellular fluid, helping to speed up the removal of skin tags, moles and other skin concerns.
