Cryotherapy is the removal of skin lesions by freezing to a very low temperature. It is relatively painless procedure but we will rarely use it in children under the age of 6-7 years of age, it is commonly used for treatment of the following:-
Warts + Verrucas

Some early skin cancers.
If you have a skin lesion you are worried about please book in to see Dr O’Connell and he will be able to advise you on the appropriate treatment. Some lesions will not be suitable for treatment in the surgery, in which case you will be referred on as appropriate.
