Genital Warts And Liquid Nitrogen Cryotherapy


Take away all those genital warts by freezing them with liquid nitrogen through Cryotherapy or cryosurgery.

Cryotherapy is the process by which the therapist uses extreme cold in order to destroy abnormal growths. Skin disorders like moles, warts, solar keratoses, and skin tags can be healed through this treatment. But for genital warts it is one of the most effective methods.

Liquid nitrogen is the main chemical used in Cryotherapy. It freezes the warts at the cellular level. It is an extremely cold liquid that is basically spayed on the genital wart and a blister form around it.

The skin will heal after several days and the genital wart and blister will fall off.

It would take several Cryotherapy sessions before the warts are completely healed. Aside from its efficiency, it is the ideal treatment method because it is minimally-invasive.

It doesn’t also give severe side effects as it only provides mild skin irritation and scarring compared to the other treatment methods. There is a need to be extra careful of the healthy areas that may get affected.

First, the doctor applies the liquid nitrogen to and around the warts. The tissue is frozen with liquid nitrogen, then, the tissue is allowed to thaw. If needed, the tissue will be frozen again.

The time of application will depend on the doctor who applies the liquid nitrogen and the size of the warts.

The number and the length of the freeze cycles rely on the size and thickness of the warts. Approximately, three treatments may be needed to achieve desired results.

You may have burning sensations from mild to moderate but this is just part of the treatment. Those that require most treatments are genital warts in the urethra or anus because they are far inside the opening.

Recovery time depends on the location and the number of warts removed. Healing process occurs within 1 to 3 weeks.

Cryotherapy is the treatment recommended by experts in removing genital warts. Do not just do one treatment because warts may grow back if there is no follow up treatment.

Cryotherapay can remove 90% of the warts. However, the removal of the genital warts can’t cure a human papillomavirus or (HPV) infection. The virus remains in the body after the warts were removed.

However, it can only be performed at the doctor’s office. A magnifying instrument may be used to see the abnormal tissue better. Do not attempt to perform the operation at home because Cryotherapy can be very excruciating and dangerous once performed the wrong way.

Even if you have the needed chemicals to freeze your genital warts at home, it is strictly recommended to let a medical practitioner do it.
