What are CryoProbes and How do they Work?
At Astra Medi Spa, our specialists work with cutting-edge equipment for the most effective results — including the innovative CryoProbe.
This fantastic device has the power to target and destroy abnormal tissue quickly, safely and precisely. It’s far faster than traditional surgery and can help you enjoy smoother skin free of unsightly blemishes or growths.
Sounds impressive? It is. But how does the CryoProbe work?
What is a CryoProbe?
The CryoProbe is a small handheld tool resembling a pen. It might look simple, but it’s actually an incredible feat of compact design.
It utilizes disposable cartridges filled with nitrous oxide, which administer fast treatment on the specific target (whatever that may be). Freezing the tissue takes just seconds and is safe, as the CryoProbe is simple to control with the right training.
Multiple types of CryoProbe have been created to help treat various skin issues, including:
This is just a selection of the different types of conditions and growths CryoProbes are designed to handle. Each model is used by professionals in multiple disciplines, from doctors and veterinarians to beauty therapists tackling a wealth of cosmetic issues.
Each CryoProbe has its own capabilities for maximum-flow times (such as 120 or 240 seconds), according to the size of the cartridge used.
How accurate is a CryoProbe?
The portable nature of CryoProbes means our specialists can be incredibly accurate during treatment, removing warts, skin tags and lesions across the body. Various applicators come supplied with CryoProbes too, which lets us choose the right tip for the problem at hand.
CryoProbe procedures are one of the most convenient ways to treat certain skin conditions and blemishes, without the physical trauma or recovery times associated with traditional surgery. You can visit Astra Medi Spa, undergo the treatment and be on your way faster than you may expect.
For example, freezing a wart takes from five to 45 seconds, depending on its size and shape. The majority of lesions usually take up to 30 seconds to freeze, but again, this may vary.
What does the CryoProbe process involve?
We’ll invite you to an in-depth consultation beforehand. You can ask any questions you might have or address concerns before we treat you, for your peace of mind. You’ll be told how the procedure works and what results you can expect.
Though the targeted tissue is frozen and destroyed, a CryoProbe causes little discomfort. Changing the cartridges is simple and our team is well trained to get the best performance out of these amazing tools.
As you can see, the CryoProbe is a powerful piece of equipment delivering a hassle-free solution. You can have skin tags, lesions and warts of all sizes removed quickly and easily.
