The word cryosurgery comes from the Greek word “cryo” meaning cold. Cryosurgery is the process of using controlled freezing to get rid of unwanted tissue.
Warts, moles, small skin cancers, and other abnormal tissue can be destroyed using this method.
It enables the destruction of a wide variety of superficial skin lesions by using techniques of controlled rapid freezing.
Cryosurgery is a simple, useful, and cost effective way of controlling and getting rid of unwanted tissue.
It typically has excellent results, with few side effects, and overall less scarring than many other procedures.
It is also a very common treatment for benign and pre-malignant skin lesions.
While cryosurgery can be used for internal procedures, here at Fall Creek Skin and Health Clinic in Rexburg, we only use cryosurgery for skin procedures. These include specific focal destruction of topical warts, abnormal tissues, small skin cancers, and other unwanted skin lesions.
