Corn is an area of thickened skin due to direct pressure on a small area, especially seen on the feet. Corns are removed through a simple and safe office procedure to completely remove the corn. We offer either surgery or cryotherapy which will be decided after discussing with the patient. These prevent recurrence, and multiple corns can be removed. Corrective footwear reduces recurrence.
Cryosurgery for the treatment of
- Seborroeic keratosis.
- Small tumors on the face.
- Hypertrophic scar.
- Pyogenic Granuloma.
Cryotherapy is a simple office procedure utilizing liquid nitrogen, delivered by a special tip application, to freeze epidermal lesions. Liquid nitrogen is considered a surgical destruction of lesions, that uses a freeze/thaw cycle for 30 seconds. After the treatment, the lesion will swell for a few hours to days, then scab and eventually it should fall off. The entire process can take anywhere from one to three weeks to see the result. Often the lesion may need to be treated again in 20 to 30 days.
