Cryotherapy is a technique that uses an extremely cold liquid to freeze and destroy abnormal skin cells that require removal. This technique is also called cryosurgery. Cryotherapy can be employed to destroy a variety of benign skin growths, such as warts, pre-cancerous lesions (such as actinic keratoses), and malignant lesions (such as superficial basal cell and early squamous cell cancers). The goal of cryotherapy is to freeze and destroy targeted skin growths while preserving the surrounding skin from injury.
