Liquid Nitrogen Therapy

(Cryosurgery)

After-care Instructions

The procedure may cause some stinging and burning while the growth is being frozen and may continue while it thaws. Throbbing may persist on any areas, especially the face or forehead, but this will not last long.

  • We recommend Tylenol for any persistent pain.

  • The area treated will become red, swollen and develop either a blister or a scab. DO NOT remove the scab yourself. 

  • Apply a thin layer of Vaseline or CeraVe Healing ointment to keep area moist and cover with a Band-Aid. The scab will fall off on its own in the next 1-2 weeks.

  • Please try to protect the areas with sunblock when outside to minimize sun exposure to the treated site.

  • Healing can take 1-3 weeks and the skin may look slightly lighter or darker in color, which usually fades with time.

  • If you experience fever, swelling, tenderness or oozing from the site, please call our office.
