The Liquid Nitrogen service (or Cryotherapy) is provided by Dr Leyden and Dr Somerset at Abbey House Surgery.
It is used for the treatment / freezing of various skin conditions including skin tags and viral warts as well as some forms of sun related damage.
We do not use it to treat verrucas as it does not help these.
It can be painful and so we do not recommend it for children below the age of 10.
Unless you have been seen in the clinic before, it is better to see your own doctor first to assess if your skin problem could be helped by Cryotherapy.
To book an appointment you need to ask our Telephone Triage Administrators for a "Liquid Nitrogen" appointment. Clinics are normally held twice monthly in an afternoon and you may be asked to join the waiting list if demand is high.
