Concerns CryoProbe™ Can Address


CryoProbe™ is a safe and efficient method for treating bothersome and sometimes contagious skin lesions without damaging healthy tissue. As an evolutionary step up in cryotherapy technology, CryoProbe™ pinpoints dermatological concerns, such as:

  • Warts or verrucas
  • Actinic and seborrheic keratoses
  • Molluscum contagiosum


Some skin imperfections do not pose any health risks, but they may cause a patient emotional distress. CryoProbe™ can delicately reduce or remove aggravating skin abnormalities with ease, improving skin texture and tone. This instrument treats a wide range of cosmetic skin concerns, such as:

  • Hemangioma
  • Skin tags
  • Pigmented spots

Recovery and Results

After CryoProbe™ treatment, patients may resume their normal activities, including swimming and showering. The treated area must be protected from damage until fully healed to avoid infection and scarring. Cryotherapy with CryoProbe™ is considered permanent when treating most skin abnormalities, but repeat treatments may be required for certain chronic conditions, such as molluscum contagiosum.
