Lipofreeze 2U – Cryopen Specialists
Dermatofibroma is a small, benign skin tumor that appears as a firm bump on the skin.
It usually ranges in color from brown to pink and its texture is often described as pebbly or dimpled.
Dermatofibroma may be mistaken for cancerous growths, but it does not spread or cause other health problems.
Cryopen is a minimally invasive treatment for Dermatofibroma. It is an effective treatment for dermatofibroma as it can quickly and safely remove lesions without the need for surgery.
The procedure involves using a very precise and rapid beam of cold nitrogen vapour to freeze the affected area, causing the lesion to be destroyed.
Cryopen allows for controlled and targeted freezing of the Dermatofibroma without any damage to surrounding healthy tissue. The benefits of Cryopen include minimal scarring, reduced downtime, and rapid healing.
Lipofreeze 2 U Cryopen Cryotherapy is pain free, non-invasive and is done quickly meaning that your treatment can be carried out with no down time needed.
