What is Cryotherapy?

Cryotherapy is a simple procedure that is ideal for individuals who have age spots, warts, milia, skin tags, lesions, or moles. Removal can be performed for cosmetic and medical reasons. There are quite a few different types of lesions, and they can either be raised and create a bump or can lie beneath the skin’s surface and cause a dark spot. At Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery, we treat all types of lesions.

Why Remove a Lesion?

There are many different types of lesions on the body. Lesions that have a danger of becoming melanoma are almost always removed for medical reasons. These include lesions and moles that are irregular in shape, crusty, bleeding, or discolored.

Other lesions such as a large or bumpy mole are generally just annoying. If a lesion is truly bothersome and upsetting due to its cosmetic appearance, it may be considered for lesion removal.

Cryotherapy for aesthetic reasons removes unsightly and bothersome lesions, per a patient’s overall dislike of having or seeing the lesion on their body.

Procedure Technique

Cryotherapy with CryoPen releases a fine stream of nitrous oxide under high pressure to freeze and remove unwanted skin imperfections. The CryoPen offers several different applicators to allow for millimeter precision without damaging surrounding healthy tissue. The type of applicator used for your treatment will depend on the size, type, and location of your skin lesion. All cryotherapy sessions are performed on-site in one of our private treatment rooms at Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery. Most removals with CryoPen take about 2-30 seconds per skin lesion.


After your cryotherapy procedure, the treatment area may feel sensitive and tender. These symptoms usually fade within a few days. Over-the-counter pain medication may be used to reduce any discomfort. It’s important that you adhere to all post-op instructions so the treatment sites heal properly. Usually the skin will scab over and heal within 2-3 weeks with proper aftercare and application of topical medication. If you have any questions during your recovery process, please call our office for assistance.


We’re often asked if the lesions return after cryotherapy. The majority of lesions that are removed with cryotherapy often do not return. Cryotherapy with CryoPen offers positive, lasting outcomes for patients, and the worry of the lesion growing back is usually not a concern.

Unfortunately, scarring is a part of lesion removal surgery, but cryotherapy involves less scarring than other methods of lesion removal with minimal post-op care. Patients who are worried about the scarring left behind should seek out a highly trained plastic surgeon. Our team understands not only how to safely remove the lesion, but how to incorporate techniques to minimize scarring for the best results possible. You can rest assured that when you visit our practice, you’re in good hands.
