Are you happy with the look of your skin? If you have noticed age spots, sun spots, and other similar types of lesions, you have probably wondered what you can do about it. Well, here at the office of Charles Kleinberg, MD, we urge you to not pursue unproven and untested “remedies” that you see in ads. Instead, rely on expert, experienced medical care and a procedure done here that is called cryosurgery.
When you want to enjoy clearer skin, you can become impatient to see results. But what good is it to rush into something that might give you an outcome that is unsatisfactory, or worse yet might be unsafe. You have to put your long term health at the top of the list of priorities. Our Upper East Side skin surgery works by freezing your lesions with liquid nitrogen. Don’t worry. You will remain comfortable. Our dermatological surgeon will numb you first using local anesthesia. The process is done on an outpatient basis, so there is no hospital stay required, nor is there any protracted recovery time involved. The liquid nitrogen is applied on and around the problem area. In many cases, it will take more than one session to get the full effect of our Upper East Side skin surgery. You skin will heal it about 3 to 6 weeks after the final application. With no traditional cutting or stitches needed, there is far less chance for complications or side-effects due to cryosurgery. It is worth noting that if there is a reason to believe that a skin biopsy might be needed, this treatment is not suitable because the liquid nitrogen destroys the tissue that would be used for one.
