Beauty therapists Hayley and Eiren have been very busy lately learning lots of new and exciting treatments, including cryotherapy. Cryotherpay has been used by doctors for the last 15 years in the successful treatment of skin complaints such as warts, skin tags, verrucas, sun spots/pigmentation and cherry anginomas. This treatment is now available for level 3 qualified beauty therapists and Cherish are one of the first salons in the county to be able to offer this to you!

We know what you are thinking, it must be painful? No! Not at all in fact! The Cherish girls are sensitive ladies and not fans of anything that brings a tear to the eye but the amazing thing about cryotherapy is that it is virtually pain free!

So how exactly does it work?  Let me explain. By definition ‘Cryotherapy is the controlled destruction of unwanted tissue by the precise application of extreme cold’. Basically, we use a Cryopen with a very precise tip to apply liquid nitrogen (-45 degrees) to the affected area for a few seconds. The freezing temperature gives an analgesic effect and as there is no incision, no cutting and no bleeding  it is very sterile with no risk of any infection.

Who is this suitable for? Almost anybody! With exception of mummies to be (sorry ladies), cancer patients, diabetics or people who suffer from an auto-immune disease. It can even be done on brave children with their parents consent.
