What is Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy is a common treatment for precancerous skin lesions and benign skin growths that involves applying a cold solution – most often liquid nitrogen – to freeze the superficial epidermal lesion or growth and remove it from the skin.
After the cryotherapy treatment, the skin lesion or growth becomes irritated and resolves over the next several weeks. In other words, the treated site heals and clears up.
