About Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy is a treatment for warts. Cryotherapy consists of using a very cold substance, usually liquid nitrogen, to freeze and deaden the tissue.

This procedure can be performed in a doctor’s office and usually takes less than a minute.

During cryotherapy, the doctor uses liquid nitrogen on the foot wart. The doctor applies it using a probe or a cotton swab. It can also be sprayed directly onto the wart.

The liquid nitrogen can cause pain and discomfort, so if this procedure is used to get rid of your wart, a numbing drug is sometimes used.

We do not usually use cryotherapy on plantar warts because of the pain it can cause.

Cryotherapy can be combined with salicylic acid treatment and when combined with acid treatment, studies have shown it to be successful up to 78% of the time.

Cryotherapy treatments typically require follow up visits to ensure the wart is completely removed.

For more information on warts, you can watch the video What Causes Warts and Ingrown Toenails?
