Cryoplantalis® is a painless and safe in-office procedure utilizing controlled cooling temperatures to repair pathological tissue (sensory nerves that produce pain) via a cryoprobe. Cooling is accomplished via the expansion of highly pressurized and compressed nitrous oxide gas through a cryoprobe. Throughout history and with the advances in medicine, controlled cryotherapy has evolved from an anesthetic process to a cell regenerative treatment modality that has help revolutionize many medical specialties including Oncology (cancer), Urology, Pain Management, Opthamology, Dermatology, and Podiatry.
