Dog Fouling

- Are you bothered by benign skin lesions? Have you been to your GP or a secondary care dermatologist only to be told they’re “cosmetic” and not treated on the NHS? Well look no further - Cryotherapy treatment is now available at Nature’s Temple in North Street, Sudbury. Previously lecturing in beauty therapy and having spent over 30 years in health, beauty and wellness, salon owner Jane has undergone specialist training to be able to offer this safe, permanent and pain free treatment for men, women and children.

CryoPen is the professional blemish removal treatment offering a safe and highly effective method of freezing and removing benign skin lesions using high-pressure liquid nitrous oxide to destroy the tissue rapidly. The CryoPen is a cryotherapy tool, it is a refrigeration system capable of ejecting highpressure nitrous oxide gas into the skin. The pen destroys the skin tissue by freezing the intercellular fluid and does not affect any healthy tissue in the surrounding area thanks to its pinpoint accuracy! In short, cryotherapy is a procedure that uses extreme cold to destroy tissue.

The Benefits of Cryotherapy Treatment with CryoPen are pinpoint accuracy, quick & pain free,safe and proven technology, no anaesthetic needed, treats blemishes from 1mm to 10mm in size, safe for use on the face & eyes.

Skin tags & warts, benign moles, seborrhoeic keratosis, age spots, sun spots milia, freckles & verrucas can all be permanently removed with one, or several treatments depending on size and depth. A full consultation is required and parental consent is needed if under 18 years of age. Jane can also refer moles for suitability within a 48 hour window.

Why should I choose CryoPen for wart removal? CryoPen offers unique benefits if you choose to remove your warts or verruca. It is extremely time efficient. One appointment can take only fifteen minutes on the day, as procedure time is less than 60 seconds per wart. No anaesthetic is required meaning you can go to the appointment during your lunchtime, and you won’t need to take time off work. Recovery time is moderate discomfort up to 24 hours.
