WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
The cryotherapy treated area will appear like a small burn. You may experience mild redness, stinging or discomfort. The redness will gradually subside over a week. If the treated area is slightly weepy, your doctor may cover the area with a dressing, and advised you to apply antibiotic ointment or Vaseline over the area to encourage healing. Overtime, the abnormal skin lesion may reduce in size or potentially fall off itself.
HOW MANY SESSIONS DO I NEED?
Frequency of cryotherapy sessions depends on the size of the lesion, individual response to cryotherapy treatment. Your doctor usually will follow you up 2 to 4 weeks after your cryotherapy session to review the effect on the skin lesion. If required, your doctor may advise you for further cryotherapy session.
