Cryotherapy is considered the gold standard for treating common warts and benign skin lesions.
In Esteliq, we perform cryosurgery treatment using Histofreezer® Portable Cryosurgical System. It is professional-grade product to treat nine different types of skin lesions, including common, plantar and genital warts and other common benign skin lesions.
- Low cost per treatment.
- Less than one-minute-procedure.
- Verruca vulgaris (Common warts) - A common wart of the skin or mucosa. The warts are round firm skin-colored papules with a hyperkeratotic (thickening) papillary surface. Sizes range between 1 to 10 mm. The hands, fingers and knees are common sites. Thrombosed capillaries which appear as black dots can be seen on the surface of some warts.
- Verruca plantaris (Plantar warts) - Painful, unappealing benign tumors on the sole of the feet caused by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV-1) when it enters the skin through a cut or skin erosion. These warts can generally be characterized as rough, round-oval growths that can be lighter or darker than their surroundings.
- Verruca plana - Also known as a "flat wart", round or oval shaped, only slightly elevated and sharply defined. They may induce however significant disturbances of pigmentation anywhere from flesh-colored in appearance to dark brown. Auto inoculation by scratching can result in linearly grouped lesions. Location of these lesions is commonly found on the forehead, cheeks, perioral (tissues around the mouth) as well as the dorsal side of hands and arms.
- Molluscum contagiosum - A contagious disease of the skin caused by intranuclear proliferation of a virus of the family Poxviridae and characterized by the appearance of small,pearly, umbilicated papular epidermal growths. In adults it typically occurs on or near the genitals and is sexually transmitted.
- Acrochordon - Common benign skin growths (a/k/a skin tags) that occur most often after midlife. They are tiny skin protrusions, and may have a small narrow stalk connecting the skin bump to the surface of the skin. The origin is unknown however is believed to be an inherited indication.
- Actinic keratosis - A premalignant warty lesion occurring on the sun-exposed skin of the face or hands in aged light-skinned persons; hyperkeratosis may form a cutaneous horn, and squamous cell carcinoma of low-grade malignancy may develop in a small proportion of untreated patients.
- Lentigo - A brown macule resembling a freckle except that the border is usually regular, and microscopic proliferation of rete ridges is present; scattered melanocytes are seen in the basal cell layer.
- Seborrheic keratosis - Superficial, benign, verrucous, often pigmented, greasy lesions consisting of proliferating epidermal cells, resembling basal cells,enclosing horn cysts; they usually occur after the third decade.
- Condyloma acuminata - A warty growth on the external genitals or at the anus, consisting of fibrous overgrowths covered by thickened epithelium showing koilocytosis,due to sexually transmitted infection with human papilloma virus; malignant change is associated with particular types of the virus.
Lesions are resolved in one to four treatments with two-week intervals between treatments.
A study showed an average rate of 93.4% effectiveness for a variety of lesions.
