Cryosurgery is a highly effective treatment for a wide variety of benign (that is, non cancerous) skin problems. This is an ideal way to remove warts and verrucas. Extreme cold (liquid nitrogen) is used to destroy the abnormal tissue. Advantages of this technique are that it is quick and there is minimal risk of scarring or infection.
A Full consultation with your Surgeon is included in the below price.
|NUMBER OF LESIONS||Price||Duration of Appointment|

Most lesions will only need one treatment. However, some of the lesions may warrant follow up therapy – your GP will inform you as to how many treatments may be needed before commencing cryotherapy.
Warts and Verrucas usually disappear without treatment. However, it can take up to 2 years for the virus to leave your system and the Wart/ Verruca to disappear. With Cryotherapy, liquid nitrogen is applied to your wart for a few seconds to freeze and destroy the affected skin cells. Following this a sore blister will form which will scab over and eventually fall off in 7-10 days.
Lesions amenable to cryotherapy include:
Actinic keratosis, Cherry angioma, Common warts and Verrucas, Molluscum contagiosum, Cutaneous horn, Myxoid cyst, Pyogenic granuloma, small skin tags.
Your Speciality Dermatology GP – Dr Amy Hermon-Taylor
I am NOT a Consultant Dermatologist.
I am a GP with a special interest in Dermatology.
After qualifying as a doctor from St. George’s Medical School in 2001, I spent 8 years working in hospital medicine –completing a basic surgical training as well as working in Intensive Care, Anaesthetics, Neonatology and Elderly Care Medicine – before deciding to become a GP. I have been working as a GP since 2011 in a variety of Practices in Wandsworth and Lambeth.
My GP training opened my eyes to the wonders of Dermatology and this exciting and diverse speciality has been my passion ever since. I hold the Post-Graduate Diploma in Clinical Dermatology and have extensive experience in minor surgery. After training in cosmetic dermatology in 2010, I joined the team at Medicetics cosmetic skin clinic in Connaught Street where I continue to work, specialising in subtle rejuvenation using botox, dermal fillers, peels, IPL and bespoke medical skincare programmes. I am a member of British College of Aesthetic Medicine.
In all areas of my practice, I aim to combine the highest standards of medical care with empathy, sensitivity and a friendly, non-judgemental approach.
I also volunteer many hours a week for charity, heading up the Patient and Public Involvement Group and fundraising for a research project into Crohn’s Disease, based at King’s College London. I have run two marathons to raise money for this project and am training for a third in October 2015.
