Cutaneous cryosurgery in the general medicine practice refers to the localized application of freezing temperatures to achieve a controlled destruction of skin lesions. The use of cryotherapy in clinical medicine is increasing along with the aging population and their propensity for benign and premalignant lesions.
In the past years the innovation in application techniques and the level of sophistication of cryosurgical devices has made cryotherapy widely used in the primary care. This widespread use is due to its safety, effectiveness, low cost, ease of use, low pain and good aesthetic outcome. On another positive note, no anesthesia is needed.
The annoyance of dealing with uncontrolled delivery of hazardous liquid nitrogen, imprecise cotton buds, spills of the nitrogen out of canisters as well as their difficult to place cones in non-common places, has been overcome with the intelligent cryotherapy solution, the CryoIQ®.
Our innovative CryoIQ®
The CryoIQ® is a safe, effective and portable handheld cryosurgical device which delivers fine spray with pinpoint accuracy to the lesion at a constant freezing temperature of -89°C/-128°F with a 725 psi/50 bar freezing power. A skin lesion treatment, with the state-of-the-art CryoIQ®, is fast, safe, effective, low-cost, and with no anesthetic is needed. The instrument either uses a fixed applicator for the most common treatment options or offers the choice of a wide range of applicators to be used for a more extensive variety in treatment options.
