Mole Removal with Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy is the application of extreme cold to treat, or destroy skin lesions. Cryotherapy is a very effective, safe, economical, and easy-to-perform method of treating many benign skin lesions such as Moles, Warts, Skin Tags, etc. Genital Warts, Genital Skin Tags / Skin Flaps can easily be treated with cryotherapy.

The success of cryotherapy, like any other medical procedure is simply dependent on the expertise of physician using this method. Cryotherapy utilizes Liquid Nitrogen that is capable of producing extreme low temperatures. About 80% of the air we breathe is made of nitrogen. Nitrogen is an inert gas and does not react with anything. It is not flammable either. Under extreme pressure, air and specially nitrogen, transforms shape and becomes liquid. Upon evaporation, liquid nitrogen produces extreme cold, -196 Celsius.

Application of liquid nitrogen to unwanted skin lesions induces freeze-destruction of tissue. Videos below depict my standard method of applying Cryotherapy to benign skin lesions.

For the past several years, Dr. Tirgan has been using cryotherapy in variety of benign skin conditions, and specifically for treatment of large benign skin lesions such as Keloids. This treatment is even more effective when it is used to treat othe benign skin lesions.
