Histofreezer – Wart Removal System in Singapore

The Histofreezer® is a cryotherapy device that removes warts fast without blood or pain. It is FDA-approved for the removal of most common skin lesions. 

Histofreeze treatment


How The Histofreezer Works

The Histofreezer contains liquified gas, consisting of a mixture of dimethyl ether, propane and isobutane. It is sprayed onto the affected area in a controlled manner. This area of the skin reaches a temperature of -55ºC.

The uppermost layer of the skin, together with the lesion will freeze and eventually drops off. A new, healthier layer of skin replaces it. This can take any time between 10 to 14 days depending on individual recovery. Regardless, there is no pain and minimal risk of scarring. 

Histofreezer Treats A Range Of Common Lesions

Apart from its indicated use of wart removal, the Histofreezer can also help eliminate other benign skin growths found on the body:

  • Skin Tags
  • Genital Lesions
  • Actinic Keratosis
  • Seborrheic Keratoses
  • Molluscum Contagoisum and more


Features Of Histofreezer

  • As a US FDA-approved treatment system, Histofreeze has been tested by many clinical studies
  • Because the lesion is frozen off, any stinging or burning sensation felt during the treatment will rapidly fade away during the thawing phase

Safety Of The Histofreezer

The Histofreezer® allows targeted wart removal and treatment of benign lesions at temperatures warmer than -60ºC, reducing the chances of scarring. Histofreeze is generally safe for adults, and children 4 and over.

Histofreeze is a form of Cryotherapy that eliminates common skin growths such as warts, seborrhoeic keratosis and actinic keratosis. This is done via the Histofreezer® canister.

Depending on the size of the lesion and patient recovery, most lesions resolve after 3 treatments, once every two weeks.

After assessing your needs, the doctor can get the Histofreeze done in a matter of minutes.

Upon completion of the recommended course, results can be permanent. Results vary by the individual and lifestyle choices. Repeated treatments may be required for some skin disorders.

Histofreezing is a painless procedure and accepted by most patients. 

The wound healing time can vary between a few days to a couple of weeks for larger areas. Patients with smaller, less prominent lesions usually return to daily activities after treatment. 

Sometimes the area may swell up, blister and can fill with blood. This is quite normal following Histofreeze. Blisters can be pricked with a sterile needle and an antiseptic cream can be applied morning and evening until the healing process is complete.

If you feel the pain is not reducing after four or five days of the treatment, and the area looks red and angry, please inform our clinic.

In addition, temporary, visible changes in the intensity of pigmentation may occur following treatment such as hypopigmentation (turning white) or hyperpigmentation (turning dark).

Histofreeze is safe for most healthy adults, and children over the age of 4. As with all medical procedures, you should be sure to disclose all of your medical history and current habits such as smoking and use of blood-thinners, medications, birth control pills, or supplements.

Histofreeze is unsuitable in the following circumstances:

  • Lesions that are not benign. Find out by speaking to our doctor who will assess you in person
  • Those with a risk of leg ulcers and older patients should avoid Histofreeze on the gaiter area of legs

Pre-care: Please shave any hair around the lesions the night before treatment. Longer, thicker hair can be in the way of treatment.

Post-care: Wash the treated area on a daily basis to keep the area clean and to gently remove any loose scabs. Avoid prolonged exposure of the treatment area to sunlight.

The Histofreezer device operates by vaporizing a liquid gas, which reaches a very low temperature of around -57°C (-70°F). This extremely cold temperature creates an icing effect when applied to the skin lesion, effectively freezing and destroying the targeted tissue.
