What is Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy is an in-office procedure used to treat many conditions that can include skin growths such as warts, skin tags, certain cancers, seborrheic keratoses treatment, and more in our Omaha office. The treatment uses liquid nitrogen or argon gas to create extreme cold and freeze the affected area. This creates a localized frostbite, killing the cells in your epidermis. Healthy cells below the affected area can then replace the dead tissue.
At MOD Dermatology, our certified dermatologists will evaluate your skin growth to see if our cryotherapy services in Omaha may be an option. If necessary, they will perform a biopsy on the affected area to confirm the skin condition.
What to Expect During Cryotherapy
Cryotherapy treats abnormal tissue on the skin. Our board-certified dermatologists will apply liquid nitrogen using a cotton swab or spraying device to the affected area.
Aftercare and Side Effects
Post-procedure care is essential to ensure proper healing. We provide personalized aftercare instructions based on the specific type of cryosurgery and the treated area. It's crucial to keep the area clean and dry and avoid direct sunlight, as this can exacerbate irritation. Some patients experience mild pain or discomfort following the procedure, though it is typically manageable with over-the-counter pain relief.
Side effects are minimal but can include swelling, redness, or infection. Our team is dedicated to supporting your recovery, addressing any concerns, and monitoring healing to ensure optimal results. Your well-being and satisfaction are our top priorities, assuring you receive comprehensive care from consultation to recovery after cryotherapy in Omaha.
