Understanding Angiofibromas Gravesend

Angiofibromas are a benign growth of blood vessels and fibrous tissues that often occur in the nose and cheeks. These growths can be small or large and are often noticeable as red or flesh-colored bumps on the skin. While they are usually harmless, they can cause discomfort, bleeding, and even affect your appearance. Fortunately, advancements in medical technology have made it possible to remove the growths with minimal scarring and discomfort.

Angiofibromas are small, benign tumors that primarily manifest on the face. While they pose no serious health risks, their high recurrence rate and potential for cosmetic disfigurement often lead individuals to seek treatment.

Angiofibromas Gravesend, How We Remove It

Angiofibromas Gravesend Removal Treatment

Angiofibromas
Cryopen is a non-invasive method of treating angiofibroma. It is used to freeze the blood vessels and other tissues that make up the growth. The treatment is performed using a hand-held device that sprays a small amount of compressed gas onto the affected area.

This gas is very cold (-89°C), and it freezes the tissues almost instantly. The frozen tissues are then destroyed, and the body can naturally eliminate the damaged tissue. Cryopen treatment is quick, effective, and involves no cutting or surgery.

How Cryopen Treatment Works

Cryopen treatment involves the use of a device that sprays compressed gas onto the affected area. The gas is very cold and creates a small ice ball at the tip of the device. The device is applied to the bump, and the ice ball freezes the vascular tissue and causes localised cellular destruction. Cryopen uses disposable tips, so there is no risk of infection or cross-contamination. The treatment is very safe, and most people experience very little discomfort.

Preparing for Cryopen Treatment

Before your cryopen treatment, you should avoid using any cosmetics or topical creams on the affected area. Additionally, you should avoid drinking alcohol or smoking for at least 48 hours before your procedure. You should also avoid taking any blood thinners or aspirin.

Cryopen Treatment Aftercare

After your cryopen treatment, you may experience some mild redness or swelling at the treated area. This is completely normal and will resolve on its own within a few days.

You should avoid touching or picking at the treated area, as this can delay healing and increase the risk of infection. You should also avoid exposure to direct sunlight, and use a high SPF sunscreen on the treated area if you must be outside.
