At Drogheda Medical Clinic we are pleased to offer Cryotherapy services for the removal of warts and veruccae. These skin lesions can be unattractive, uncomfortable, and sometimes even painful. Cryosurgery is an effective treatment method that uses extremely cold temperatures to destroy the tissue. Specifically, when the temperature drops low enough, ice crystals actually form inside the skin cells and cause necrosis or cell death.
Cryotherapy is often a better option than other treatment methods because it is less invasive than scalpel surgery or electrocautery. Compared with other methods of removing skin lesions, cryotherapy causes less pain and scarring. It’s also an affordable procedure that is relatively safe and simple to perform.
