Liquid nitrogen is a fast, effective treatment provided in many practices to treat viral warts, sun damaged skin, skin tags and many benign cosmetic lesions. It comes in a container with a nozzle and is usually applied by swab or spray. Often one treatment is all that is needed but sometimes it may need repeating after two weeks.
Because it cannot be stored for too long, you will often find that your GP will treat a number of patients one after the other.

We have liquid nitrogen available every day.
Nurses can administer this after consultation with the doctor.
It is an excellent therapy for some warts, sun damaged skin and many other types of benign skin abnormality. Healing usually occurs without scarring
