Cryotherapy Treatment Bournemouth, Christchurch And Poole

What is cryotherapy ?

Cryotherapy, sometimes known as cold therapy, may be used to treat a variety of tissue lesions. The most prominent use of the term refers to the surgical treatment, specifically known as cryosurgery or cryoablation. Cryosurgery is the application of extreme cold temperatures to destroy abnormal or diseased tissue.

What does it feel like ?

Reactions to treatment can differ depending on the patient and the way in which the treatment is administered. Initially the patient will feel a slight sensation. Generally the lesion itself won’t generate any feeling. However the skin around the area of focus may cause a slight tingle when it comes into contact with the cold liquid. Usually treatment will only take a few minutes. The time of which the lesion will make contact with the cold liquid, a matter of seconds. Depending on the severity of a lesion, patients may require more than 1 sitting.

How much does it cost ?
