Is there anything I should be mindful of?
- Healing can be prolonged in anyone struggling with a poor immune system, auto-immunity or with diabetes, so please be sure to alert your doctor if you have any known immune problems or diabetes.
- The skin underneath a treated lesion can be pale in comparison to surrounding tissue, particularly in tanned skin. In the majority of cases, the skin tone will even out, but hypopigmentation in the area is possible.
- Melanoma and recurrent basal cell carcinomas cannot be treated with CryoPen.
- Try to leave the treated area uncovered and dry.
- Avoid removing the crust or scab that may form over a treated area.
- In some cases, crusting or scabbing may take a few weeks to fall off, and you are advised to just be patient as working the scab off can lead to scarring.
- Please contact your doctor if a blister continues to weep more than 14 days after rupture.
- Be careful to use a good quality sun protection cream (SPF 50) in any area that has been treated until the skin tone is the same as the surrounding skin.
- Many larger or thicker lesions, particularly verrucae, warts and actinic keratosis, will need a second or even third treatment.
Handling a blister: In case a blister occurs it should settle on its own, so don’t pop it. If it starts to weep, then you should clean the area carefully and apply an antiseptic cream to the area and cover it to avoid constant irritation. If it feels tender, and doesn’t appear to be healing quickly, then contact your doctor to have a look.
