Skin Clinic at Cullen Pharmacy
Skin Clinic Cullen, Buckie
Cryotherapy has been used for many years and as such offers an effective, safe, successful and reliable treatment with less chances of scarring or recurrence. The procedure itself only takes a few minutes after the initial consultation has been carried out.
Cryotherapy is a fast, effective and safe method for the removal of various skin imperfections. Working by emitting a fine stream of nitrous oxide gas at high pressure with millimetre precision. This will destroy the targeted tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid through forming ice crystals and shards which in turn ruptures the membrane and destroys the cell. Due to how precise the treatment is means that there is no damage caused to the surrounding tissue.
Cryotherapy can be used on a wide variety of skin complaints. Due to this method being classed as cosmetic treatment, this allows for easy access to patient requiring these procedures. It is quick, safe and effective at an affordable price.

What Can We Treat at our Skin Clinic?
Cryotherapy can be used to treat a variety of skin complaints:
- Pigmentation, age and sun damage spots – Where the patch of pigmentation is flat and has the same texture as normal skin. These patches are caused by exposure to UV light, causing an increase in melanin production by the melanocyte cells.
- Skin tags – These are small flaps of skin, that protrude and hang away from the flat of the skin. They are benign and are not at all dangerous. They are most likely caused by bilateral rubbing as they are usually seen in places with friction.
- Warts & Verrucae – These are caused by the same strain of the Human Papilloma Virus. The virus only affects the outer layer of the skin, the stratum corneum, it does not invade the underlying layers.
- Milia – These are generally small raised pearly bumps often seen around the eyes, or on the cheeks and forehead. But they can appear anywhere on the body.
- Cherry angioma – Sometimes referred to as blood spots. They are generally found on people over the age of 30 and the cause is unknown. They are benign and are easily treated. They are made up of a proliferation of small blood vessels, which loop through the epidermis to be seen on the surface of the skin. Cryotherapy treatment will most often remove the lesion with a single treatment.
