Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy involves freezing and deadening skin tissue to eliminate surface growths, such as warts that form on the foot. Liquid nitrogen or another cryogen is applied with a cotton swab or probe or is sprayed directly on the skin to freeze the desired area. Some warts require multiple treatments. The procedure is done in the doctor’s office and generally heals quickly with little chance of scarring.
