Cryotherapy is the use of extreme cold to freeze and destroy diseased tissue. It is most commonly used to treat skin conditions, such as warts, but it can also be used to treat other conditions. The freezing temperatures of cryotherapy can damage the skin and cause side effects, such as pain, redness, and swelling. However, these side effects are usually mild and temporary.


Cryotherapy is a safe and effective treatment for many conditions. If you are considering cryotherapy, be sure to discuss it with your doctor first to ensure that it is right for you.
