Cryospray 59 is based upon the principle that living cells which are rapidly frozen are initially damaged and subsequently die from the effects of freezing. It is now widely thought that it is the rate of cooling which causes this effect, rather than the actual temperature achieved.
It is probable that the membranes of affected cells are ruptured during freezing, releasing cell contents and viral antigens.
This release results in an immune response which causes the regression of plantar warts.
Cryospray 59 is designed to freeze tissue to temperatures of around -50°C to achieve this effective result. Other Cryogenic treatments can reduce the temperature of the tissues to -185°C which may result in a lot of pain for the patient.
