Cryotherapy, sometimes referred to as ice therapy, is the general or local application of extremely low temperatures in medicinal treatment. Cryotherapy is typically used to treat various tissue lesions, like cancer. The most popular use of this word refers to the cosmetic/cosmetically oriented surgery, specifically called cryoablation or cryoacoustic surgery. Other uses are usually in the cosmetic field and focus on the removal of spider veins, blemishes, facial lines, wrinkles etc. Some cosmetic procedures have cryotherapy as a component of them. This therapy can also be applied to the skin to destroy acne, and other skin lesions (though rarely used). Restore Hyper Wellness + Cryotherapy, New York is an excellent resource for this.
Cryotherapy uses very high temperatures to destroy the abnormal cells in the body, thus causing their death. This technique is also used in the treatment of serious diseases like leukemia (in vitro), meningitis, cancer and even skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema. The use of cryotherapy has helped in the removal of various skin lesions including those caused by viruses like the Herpes virus. It is a safe procedure that is non-invasive and does not harm the patient in any way.
A minor risk factor is that in case of cryotherapy using liquid nitrogen, swelling of the area treated may take place. This swelling may result in some skin irritation and bleeding and may result in temporary disability from the procedure. This is because the treated tissue may stick to some of the wounds during the healing process. This is relatively non-existent in the case of cryotherapy using ultrasound.
