What Does Cryosurgery Treat?
Cryosurgery, or Cryotherapy, is a non-invasive technique used to treat abnormal or diseased tissues such as skin tags, warts, infected or itchy lesions, and small tumors on pets. Growths on the eyelids and skin, in the perianal area, and inside the mouth have all been successfully treated with Cryosurgery.
How Does Cryosurgery Work?
Cryosurgery involves the application of cryogen, or liquid nitrogen, to the area in question. The cryogen “freezes” the area, killing the abnormal cells and halting further growth. The cryogen is applied either as a spray or through a cryoneedle, both of which afford doctors excellent control over the application in order to target the affected area and preserve the surrounding skin. The frozen growth quickly turns red and blisters. Within 2-3 weeks, a scab forms and falls off, revealing healthy, lesion-free tissue in its place.
How Effective is Cryosurgery?
In many instances, Cryosurgery resolves tumor issues altogether, frequently after only one treatment. Small warts and tumors rarely recur, and cancerous mouth tumors often go into remission after a single treatment as well.
