Moles are clusters of cells that produce pigment (color) and appear as a visual skin growth. Often in small circles or ovals on your skin, moles can range in shade but are usually brown or black. Moles also vary in size as well as appear across diverse body parts.
Skin tags are soft, small growths of skin that stick out on a thin skin stem. Usually in a shade similar to your normal skin tone, these tags are harmless and appear in areas of skin folds, such as in the armpits or on the neck.
Both moles and skin tags can be harmless, and generally don’t cause issues unless they regularly rub on clothing, or get caught on jewelry. If your skin tag or mole is inconvenient or is not cosmetically pleasing to you, we can help at Trifecta Med Spa. Check with your doctor or dermatologist for any moles that look different than your other moles as they may want to check into these further to ensure your safety and health.
Cryotherapy is a procedure that uses extreme cold to destroy tissue using the CryoPen device. The process is called cryo-necrosis, tissue destruction by freezing. The treatment area will be cleaned and dried, and then frozen nitrogen will be applied with the CryoPen. The area will freeze quickly and thaw slowly to remove the targeted cells. It may take a few days for the mole or skin tag to naturally fall completely off.
Cryotherapy requires no anesthesia and has less scarring than other techniques of skin lesion or skin tag removal. Plus Cryosurgery has minimal downtime required. Treatment is fast and can be integrated perfectly in daily life.

All melanomas and recurrent basal cell carcinomas. Melanoma can spread by any of several means including local, lymphatic and blood. Additionally, Melanoma will change to a much more aggressive form if part of the lesion is left behind undetected. Basal cell carcinoma is typically spread by local extension and you may need more extensive surgery if recurrence is suspected. For optimal safety and care, it is best to take care of these cells with your personal doctor or dermatologist.
Most small common warts will respond to a single treatment. However, certain types and very deep warts can be very difficult to remove and may take more than one treatment.
For most lesions or skin tags, cryotherapy is a permanent removal. Some lesions are harder to remove than others, and may require regular treatment for full removal. In more delicate places a shorter freeze time with repeat procedures may be required to get a final result with the least amount of damage to the surrounding skin. In other instances a deep lesion may take several aggressive treatments to get final results.
Yes, although cautions about skin type and location should be considered prior to deciding on freeze times. People with high levels of cryoglobulins should be treated with caution. Those with very dark skin, may not want to have cryotherapy, as it will kill the melanocytes around the treated area, making the skin in that specific treated area lighter.
After the treatment the area may sting, swell, or appear red for a short time period. The area may also itch for around 10 minutes afterwards but will soon subside. A tiny blister may form at the spot of removal, but this will heal on its own. Discomfort following the procedure can be controlled with an over-the-counter pain medication. The procedure usually leaves no scars or marks.
The cost of cryotherapy at Trifecta Med Spa in New York starts at $100. The price depends on the treatment size and amount of treatment spots. Please contact us for a Free consultation to determine the best process and price for you.
