Cryotherapy

We won’t argue soaking up some sun feels amazing – there’s nothing like warm rays on bare skin. Sadly, those rays take their toll on your skin, leading to sun damage. The sun radiates UVA, UVB and infrared energy, all of which cause mutations to our skin’s composition, leading to visible signs aging, pigmentation and, in some instances, skin cancers. With a careful eye and the proper precautions, we can help identify and remove pre-cancerous spots.

How it works

What we do

When it comes to actinic keratoses (AKs), or pre-cancerous lesions, we offer laser treatments and cryotherapy. Cryotherapy treats AKs by submersing them in liquid nitrogen; this cold or freezing therapy targets the mutated skin cells of AKs, triggering the body to slough them off. Beneath, new, healthy skin cells generate and you’ve prevented a pre-cancerous lesion from developing into skin cancer down the road. For ongoing skin cancer prevention, we always recommend a strict daily sun protection regimen.
