About

Cryotherapy

Lumps, bumps and lesions can appear anywhere on the face and body, either as a raised abnormality on the skin’s surface or protruding from beneath the skin.

Although they can often become annoying or itchy, a skin lesion may be hard or soft in texture and is not often found to be harmful. Lumps are likely to develop in places where the sweat glands are especially active and are more common through ageing and exposure to the sun.

Ambra Aesthetic Clinic uses the Freezepen device, which is the latest branded product from the World Leader in handheld Cryotherapy, with FDA and CE approval. The implement can target the concerning lesion with precision and control, using a process called ‘necrosis’ to rapidly freeze and thaw the unwanted cells and destroy them.

At the time of freezing, the lesion will turn white in colour, before returning to normal once it has thawed. At this point the cells have been destroyed and within a few days a scab will form, which may take around 2 weeks to fall off and heal. A dressing may or may not be applied, depending on the lesion itself, and any aftercare will be explained to you in full.

Feelings of embarrassment can arise within a person who has a noticeable lump, bump or lesion. After treatment, Cryotherapy can leave the skin with an even surface and smooth texture, increasing confidence levels that may have been affected.

FAQ

AM I SUITABLE FOR CRYOTHERAPY?

Cryotherapy can help to reduce feelings of embarrassment and self-consciousness through the appearance of a noticeable lump, bump or skin lesion. By attending a consultation before the treatment will enable Ambra Aesthetic Clinic to assess the concerning lesion in detail, and recommend if Cryotherapy will be of benefit.

IS CRYOTHERAPY SAFE?

Meaning ‘cold therapy’, this procedure has been utilised for the treatment of removing many irregularities and abnormalities of the skin for many decades. Ambra Aesthetic Clinic uses the latest innovative product, Freezepen, which has both FDA and CE approval. The technique used can be very safe when performed by a trained and experienced practitioner, such as at Ambra Aesthetic Clinic.

IS CRYOTHERAPY PAINFUL?

Some slight localised pain may be felt at the treatment area for a very short while. The procedure itself does not take very long and anaesthesia is not usually required, however you may be advised to take some pain relief medication prior to the treatment. It is not uncommon for some patients to also experience some sensitivity at the treatment site for a short time after the procedure, which is temporary.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS OR RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH CRYOTHERAPY?

Some swelling and redness should be expected, for around 2 – 3 days after the treatment, when you may also see a little fluid being expelled from the wound. Any blistering or scabs that form, will fall off within a couple of weeks, and are a normal part of the healing process. In some very rare cases, a person develops an infection, which will see a prolonged period of discomfort and pus coming from the wound. If this occurs you would need to contact the clinic or see your GP.

IS THERE ANY ASSOCIATED DOWNTIME?

The treated area may be a little sensitive for a time, following the procedure and some aftercare instructions may need to be followed. However, in most cases a person is able to continue with normal daily activities whilst following this advice, without any interference to their lives.

I went to see Dr McMillan for the first time about a year ago so she could revise some badly done under eye filler NOT DONE BY DR MCMILLAN, and she’s done the most fantastic job i had terrible anxiety from the previous injector and was very nervous, I did so much research but decided to go ahead with Dr McMillan as she was so reassuring and honest with it all

I would highly recommend Maryam and her team at Ambra Aesthetic clinic, my husband had dental treatment with straightening and whitening of his teeth and the results are amazing. I have also had various treatments and we are both very pleased with the service, kindness shown and professionalism. Thank you Ambra. See you soon.

Ambra Aesthetics are the place to go to for professional, friendly service. You don’t need to go to Harley Street. Dr M and her team are all experts and really take care of you giving the best treatments and advice. Sam on the front desk is a dream. In lots of places the staff can look scary from doing too much but Ambra you can tell it’s all about discrete subtle tweakments. . Don’t hesitate to go!
