Freezing of superficial/surface skin lesion(s) with liquid nitrogen.
Superficial skin lesions affecting only the surface of the skin can be treated by freezing the area with liquid nitrogen. This procedure is most commonly used for solar keratoses (sun damaged skin), superficial basal cell carcinoma and Bowen's disease, but it can be useful for seborrhoeic keratoses, lentigines and skin tags.
