What Is Cryotherapy?
Skin lesions can arise anywhere on the skin. While most are harmless in nature, skin growths may cause concerns or affect self-confidence. Cryotherapy is a type of treatment used at Horizon Medical Center to removed skin tags, moles, warts, dark spots, and other skin lesions on the face and body. Performed on-site at our family medicine practice, cryotherapy exposes skin lesions to extremely cold temperatures, which causes the cells in the area to die. This treatment option may be recommended to treat benign, actinic keratosis (scaly precancerous skin growths), and certain types of warts. To learn if cryotherapy is right for you, we invite you to schedule a visit at our Schaumburg, IL family medicine practice.

How Does Cryotherapy Treat Skin Growths?
Cryotherapy at Horizon Medical Center is a quick in-office procedure that targets the cells within the area of concern while preserving surrounding tissue. To perform cryotherapy, our team will apply liquid nitrogen to the skin, essentially “freezing” the cells within the lesion. The skin growth will become red shortly after the procedure and may develop a blister. A scab may form over the next few days, but the area will typically heal within about 1 – 2 weeks. After providing cryotherapy, our team will advise you of post-treatment instructions and whether follow-up treatments may be needed.
Remove Skin Lesions With Experienced Care
Most skin growths treated with cryosurgery do not return. However, routine skin checks are recommended to monitor for new skin lesions or the reappearance of a skin growth within a treated area. Our experienced team at Horizon Medical Center offers cryotherapy treatments to Schaumburg, IL patients. Learn more about cryotherapy by scheduling a visit with one of our physicians. In addition to Medicare, we accept a wide range of health insurance plans.
