CryoPen treatment is a safe and effective way to remove skin lesions and skin tags. At The Nimmo Clinic in Cobham and Chelsea, we offer CryoPen treatments to help you achieve clear, healthy skin.
The CryoPen is a non-invasive procedure that uses liquid nitrogen to freeze and destroy skin lesions and skin tags. The treatment is quick and virtually painless, and there is no downtime required.
CryoPen treatment is ideal for removing a variety of skin lesions, including:
- Seborrheic keratoses (age spots)
- Actinic keratoses (precancerous sun spots)
- Skin tags
- Milia seeds
- Cherry angiomas
How does the CryoPen treatment work?
During CryoPen treatment, the CryoPen device is used to apply a stream of liquid nitrogen to the skin lesion or skin tag. The liquid nitrogen freezes the lesion, which causes the cells to die. The dead cells are then naturally shed by the body.

Cryosurgery is an advanced freezing innovation that is fact, effective, and safe for the removal of benign skin lesions on the face and body.
CryoPen® Cryosurgery devices deliver an ultracold jet of high-pressure nitrous oxide directly on to skin lesions. The nitrous oxide destroys the skin tissue by freezing the intercellular fluid and forming ice shards that rupture the cell membrane, destroying the cells. The ultra-cold nitrous oxide cuts off the blood supply during the freezing process, ensuring the client’s safety during the process.
CryoPen treatment is a quick procedure. Most lesions can be treated in less than a minute.
CryoPen treatment is safe for all skin types.
CryoPen treatment is generally painless. Some people may experience a mild stinging sensation during the treatment.
Most lesions can be removed with a single CryoPen treatment. However, some larger or deeper lesions may require multiple treatments.
