before instructions

A few simple guidelines before your treatment can make a difference between a good result and a fantastic one.

- If you have a history of herpes 1 or 2 outbreaks in the area of treatment you should call us for medical evaluation and possible prophylaxis prior to treatments.
- You should arrive for your treatment with clean skin. There should be no lotion, make-up, perfume, powder, deodorants/antiperspirants or bath/shower oil present on the skin in the area to be treated.

after instructions

Liquid nitrogen application will feel like a strong biting pinch for about 3 seconds. The pain quickly fades and is much better within 15 minutes.
- As the skin thaws out, the chilled nerves will recover function at different rates. This sometimes feels like something is dribbling on the skin for a few seconds, but there is nothing there. It is an illusion of the thawing out process.
- The frozen area may look like a mild hive for about 20 minutes.
- Often, a blister will form by the next day. Unless we instruct you otherwise, it is best to leave the blister uncovered. It is okay to cover it with a bandage for a few days if the area is especially tender.
- You will get the best cosmetic result if you leave the blister intact as long as possible. Do not break it or pierce it with needles or pins. The blister may be filled with clear fluid like water or with blood. Both of these are normal. The blister should not have pus in it. If pus develops, please call the office.
- Do not attempt to remove the blister before it falls off on its own. You may develop a scar or an infection as a result.
- While it is okay to gently wash the area with mild soap and warm water, do not soak the blister in water for at least 24 hours after we’ve applied liquid nitrogen. This means you should avoid taking a long bath, doing dishes if the blister is on your hand, and swimming for the first 24 hours.
- If the blister is especially tender or it continues to sting or burn, take an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Advil) to reduce pain.
- While the blister is present and after it falls off, be sure to wear sunscreen or protect the area from sun exposure so that it heals properly.
- After two days, a scab will form. The scab will come off in about 10-14 days on the face and 1-2 months in other areas. The frozen area may heal to make a pink area, which usually returns to normal by about 2-4 months.
- You may need several treatments with liquid nitrogen to completely remove an abnormal growth or tissue.

moles

Most mole removal usually involves an excision, or cutting out, of the mole, using anesthetic and stitches. Risks of mole removal methods vary from infection to anesthetic allergy and nerve damage. It is always prudent to choose a medical provider with experience with these removals. One of the most common difficulties after mole removal is a scar. Many people will attempt to remove moles for cosmetic reasons, not realizing that each and every removal may result in a scar. Skinologie medical staff can give you an idea of the type and location of a scar after mole removal before you make your decision about removal. Skinologie medical providers will also run tests on any suspicious-looking moles to rule out any presence of cancer.

skin tags

Skin tags are small growths (usually just a few millimeters) of flesh that typically appear on the neck, underarms, eyelids, skin folds and other areas that may be frequently rubbed or irritated. They occur commonly starting in middle age, and may be associated with pregnancy, obesity, diabetes, and other health conditions. Sometimes they may actually be cancerous skin lesions, which should be checked by a medical provider. Skinologie usually employs cryotherapy to freeze skin tags off. A numbing cream or injection may be applied, and care is taken to avoid bleeding and infections.

after instructions

When the skin surgery is finished, the wound will either be closed with sutures (stitches) or left open to heal on its own. The medical provider will decide what is best for you.
- You should rest at home the evening of your surgery. Avoid lifting anything more than 20 pounds and strenuous activities like household repairs, yard work, long shopping trips and sports. This gives your wound a good start on healing.
- Leave the bandage on for 24 hours and keep the area covered and dry.
- If you experience any discomfort, take Tylenol every 4 to 6 hours as needed. We recommend that you avoid aspirin, non steroidal anti-inflammatory agents such as Motrin or Advil, and avoid alcohol, as these increase the likelihood that you will bleed.
- If the dressing gets wet, change it.
- No loofahs or sponges in the shower until after your sutures are removed.
- Clean the Biopsy or Mole Removal site once a day with soap and water to gently cleanse the area and pat it dry.
- Gently apply an antibiotic ointment to the biopsy site with a Q-tip.
- Cover with a fresh band aid or telfa pad or leave open with ointment on the wound (especially for facial lesion).
- Depending on the location of surgery, you may not be able to use that part of your body until the stitches are removed or the wound is healed. It is a good idea to plan ahead for this. We recommend no strenuous activity for 2 weeks after your surgery such as; yoga, Pilates, running, lifting anything over 20 pounds, raking, painting or strenuous household chores.
- Any suture that you can see will need to be removed. Please make a suture removal appointment following your surgery (7-10 days)
- It is normal for healing wounds to feel slightly tender to the touch and look pink around the edges. However, if after a few days it becomes increasingly red, swollen, painful, hot or develops a discharge, please call our office.
