Advanced dermatologic freezing for removing signs of acne, scars, lesions, and abnormal skin growths.
The award-winning, board-certified dermatologic surgeons at Dermatology Associates of Seattle offer comprehensive cryosurgery for abmormal skin growths and scarring using the latest in effective and proven treatments.
Cryosurgery uses liquid nitrogen, which is a cold, liquified gas with a temperature of 196°C below zero. It freezes and destroys superficial skin growths such as warts and keratoses. Some hours after liquid nitrogen treatment your skin may become slightly swollen and red; later on it may form a crust, scab, or blister. This gradually heals and resolves over the course of 3-5 days. The procedure is painless and causes no suffering or side-effects.
