Why use Medical Grade LN

What is medical grade liquid nitrogen?

Liquid nitrogen for cryotherapy and cryosurgery is an Ethical Drug, "Ethical: a drug that in accordance with Federal Legislation does not require a prescription, but that is generally prescribed by a medical practitioner."

Why use liquid nitrogen/what is it for?

  • Liquid nitrogen best treatment for common warts: study 1 "In the study, published Monday in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, the most effective treatment for common warts was cryotherapy, using liquid nitrogen applied by a doctor every two weeks."

    "I think this study does suggest that treating warts earlier is better than treating a wart later, [Dr. Jason Rivers, a clinical professor at the University of British Columbia] said. If you look at cryotherapy for common wart, it's 83 per cent success rate if the wart was there less than six months, and it dropped down to 33 per cent for more than six months."
  • Cryosurgery for Common Skin Conditions 2 "Cryosurgery is a highly effective treatment for a broad range of benign skin problems."

    "Benign skin lesions that are suitable for freezing include actinic keratosis, solar lentigo, seborrheic keratosis, viral wart, molluscum contagiosum, and dermatofibroma. Cryosurgery requires little time and fits easily into the physician’s office schedule. Advantages of this treatment include a short preparation time, low risk of infection, and minimal wound care. In addition, cryosurgery requires no expensive supplies or injectable anesthesia, and the patient does not have to return for suture removal."

    "Over the past 50 years, much experience has been gained in the use of cryosurgery to treat skin lesions. The cotton-tipped dipstick method of liquid nitrogen application has been popular in the management of common benign lesions. However, this method is being supplanted by liquid nitrogen spray techniques. Liquid nitrogen spray equipment is easy to use, and similar techniques can be employed to manage benign, premalignant, and malignant lesions."
