Cryosurgery is a process to rapidly freeze skin tissue to destroy it.It has been used successfully for nearly a century.CryoProbe is different to traditional cryosurgery instruments.Its pen shape makes treatments incredibly easy and precise.No inaccurate freezing and excessive tissue damage.It works equally well for animals and people!
The CryoProbe contains nitrous oxide. The vet points the pen atthe lesion and presses the trigger to release a powerful microjetof cold gas, which freezes the skin tissue to -89°C.Only the tissue pointed at will freeze. Surrounding skin isunaffected. Frozen tissue will fall off and disappear in a few weeks.
Any unusual handling of pets causes a little discomfort; yourpet is outside his or her familiar territory. Your vet understandsthis and knows how to reassure your pet. As for the treatmentitself... No, it doesn’t hurt. At most, your pet will feel a smallsting at the end of treatment. That signals that the freezing iscomplete and the vet can stop. And once it’s over, it’s over! No more lesion, no more discomfort! ONLY THE BESTFOR YOURBEST FRIEND!
Your vet will examine the growth or lesion and decide if it’ssafe to treat with cryosurgery.
No anesthetic is needed. Your vet will:
hold your pet steady (perhaps with your help)
point the pen at the lesion
press the trigger to release the gas, “painting“ it over theskin for 5–30 seconds. You’ll see what looks like a whitefoam – it’s ice!
stop, wipe, then “paint“ the skin again.
That’s it! In the following days, frozen tissue will crust over,forming a scab that will fall off in a week or two.
No after-treatment is required. As with any scab, you mayneed to prevent your pet from scratching it. Your vet willadvise you on how to do this.There should be no scarring, although it’s possible that hairmay not regrow over the treated area.
If you’ve noticed anything on your pet’s skin that concerns you,or that appears to bother your pet, ask your vet to check it out.Your vet will give you the best advice on treatment options,or tell you if it’s safe to just leave it alone!CryoProbe can remove most common animal skin pathologiesin just a few seconds, such as extra eyelashes (distichiasis), wartsand small skin tumors, tumors in the mouth, and more
Cryosurgery, of course, is nothing new. It's recognized as The reference treatment in dermatology. However, veterinarians who have struggled with cryoliquid spills, imprecise cotton buds, and laborious deliveries and handling of hazardous liquid nitrogen will find that the CryProbe is a totally different experience
