• Cryosurgery is the selective destruction of lesions by causing cryogenic cell death (killing cells with extreme cold temperatures)
  • Cryosurgery preserves the tissue matrix which is relatively cold resistant, and therefore allows for proper cosmetic healing with minimal scarring
  • After dead tissue is sloughed off, re-epithelization occurs. This extends from the margins of the lesion and hair follicles
  • Less office time is needed for lesion removal with cryosurgery as compared to electrocautery, cold knife, or laser
  • Less after care is needed for the patient during the healing phase than electrocautery, cold knife, or laser
