Cortex Technology CryoPro – Liquid Nitrogen Cryotherapy Cryogun

The CryoPro is a liquid nitrogen-based treatment equipment for skin aberrations such as warts, tags, or lesions. It is the preferred choice of dermatologists across the globe since it is a non-invasive and pain-free treatment method for warts.This form of treatment involves freezing the wart skin cells with a cryogen and removing them is commonly referred to as cryotherapy or cryosurgery.

The CryoPro setup consists of a container filled with liquid nitrogen under pressure which acts as the cryogun. Each cryogun comes with a set of spray tips applicable all the common types of warts and lesions. In addition, you can also choose from a variety of optional contact probes.
To offer flexibility for different needs, the CryoPro from Cortex Technology is available in two variants—the CryoPro Maxi and the CryoPro Mini.

What is cryotherapy?

Cryotherapy is a non-invasive procedure for removing skin tags or warts by deliberate and controlled destruction of diseased tissues due to rapid cooling. The tissues are subjected to extreme cold produced by a cryogen, which leads to intra-cellular ice formation resulting in rupture of the cell membranes, and consequently cell destruction.

When compared to other wart removal methods, there are a lot more takers for cryosurgery since it is a non-invasive and pain-free procedure.
Some of the cryogens commonly used for cryotherapy are liquid nitrogen, carbon-dioxide, nitrous oxide, and a combination of dimethyl ether and propane. Amongst these, liquid nitrogen is the most popular and effective cooling agent that can instantaneously freeze warts. Dermatologists prefer liquid nitrogen-based cryoguns because of their effectiveness and quick procedure time. This has given rise to the rise in popularity of the term ‘liquid nitrogen cryotherapy’.

Liquid nitrogen vs. other cryogens

Cryosurgery is performed with quite a few different cryogens. Some of the commonly used ones are liquid nitrogen, carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, and a combination of dimethyl ether and propane.

The temperature which can be achieved by different cryogens are given below:

Cryogen

Temperature

Dimethyl ether + Propane

-57°C

Carbon dioxide

-78°C

Nitrous Oxide (N2O)

-89°C

Liquid Nitrogen (LN2)

-196°C

Of these, liquid nitrogen has been found to be most effective, simply because it can produce the maximum cooling effect. It has the potential to cause instant frostbite. Its ability to maintain temperatures much below the freezing point of water makes it useful for a lot of applications.

In cryotherapy, the same volume of other cryogens could cost less when compared to liquid nitrogen. But the results produced by a certain volume of liquid nitrogen can be achieved only with a lot more of the other cryogens. Hence, the overall cost difference will not be much, whereas the results from liquid nitrogen will be way better.

Cryosurgery procedure Using the CryoPro

The main advantage of the CryoPro is the ease of operation and the safety features. Not much technical expertise is necessary for performing cryotherapy using the CryoPro. Using the different spray tips that come with it, the CryoPro can be used for treating a variety of warts. The different application techniques that can be employed with the CryoPro are as follows:

Open spray tips: These tips are mainly used for applications requiring superficial spreading of liquid nitrogen. They do not require any contact with the skin of the patient. Hence, it eliminates the need for elaborate cleaning procedures once the procedure is done.

Closed contact probes: These probes are ideal for treatments requiring focused and deep freeze. They penetrate the skin and inject liquid nitrogen into the focus area.

CryoPro Applications

  • Basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma
  • Dermatofibroma
  • Acne
  • Condyloma
  • Molluscum contagiosum
  • Keratosis
