Cryosurgery, alternatively known as cryotherapy, is a procedure that utilizes cold temperature created by liquid nitrogen to get rid of abnormal tissue. This form of treatment is commonly used to treat sun damaged skin, pigmentation, or benign lesions such as warts and seborrheic keratoses. Occasionally it is even used to treat skin cancers. The longer tissue is frozen, the deeper the tissue destruction and the more profound the effect. It is always best to see a skilled practitioner, rather than attempting to freeze something yourself.
