What is Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy is the controlled destruction of unwanted tissue by the precise application of extreme cold. Cryotherapy treatment refers to the removal of skin lesions and moles by freezing them with liquid nitrogen. For most people this is the most effective and least invasive treatment available.
How does cryotherapy work?
Cryotherapy is medical non-surgical treatment involving the removal of skin lesions by using liquid nitrogen to freeze the skin cells until they die. The freezing treatment normally involves 5-30 seconds of the liquid spray being applied with the CryoPen™; a further freezing treatment can be applied after a short break dependent on the skin type and the nature of the problem.
In the days following treatment with the CryoPen™, the treated skin lesion may become darker and will begin to crust. The crusted skin lesion will eventually flake away; this could take anywhere between 1-6 weeks. Healing time varies from patient to patient and is largely dependent on the skin type and the skin lesion that has been treated. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled for 4-6 weeks following your treatment to review the results of the Cryotherapy and assess whether a further treatment as required. Any treatments performed at review appointments are free of charge.

We offer consultations to allow you the opportunity to meet with our qualified experts to discuss your area of concern and the treatment you are considering. You will be advised how the treatment works, the cost and what you can expect during the treatment and post treatment. Any possible risks involved will also be explained so that you can make an informed decision as to whether the treatment is right for you.
Your suitability for the treatment will also be assessed and honest advice will be offered where it is professionally believed that you may not be a candidate for that treatment or perhaps where an alternative treatment may be better suited.
How much does the treatment cost?
It is very difficult to state a fixed price as it will depend on the size, depth, quantity and area of the lesion being treated. Procedures typically last from 5 to 25 seconds.
As a guideline, a 5 second treatment would be needed for each pigmented area/age spot (ie 5 small areas for £50) whereas a seborrheic wart would require a 25 second treatment.
Prices typically start from £50 for a 25 second treatment with discounted prices being available for multiple lesions/areas.

Warm Bamboo Massage
Warm Bamboo is a relatively new therapy to be introduced to Escala Beauty.
It is a type of holistic treatment which utilises bamboo canes. During the treatment, a therapist will use a variety of differently sized bamboo canes. The size of the cane will vary depending on your body type; desirable treatment outcome and the area treated; the larger the area, the bigger the cane.
Bamboo massage has many benefits. It still represents fertility, youth, prosperity, serenity and durability in China, Japan and Indonesia, countries which the treatment was first used. Today, bamboo massage helps to promote the circulation enhancing the flow of oxygen and nutrient rich blood to help with recovery and healing, helps to reduce various pains and aches such as lower back pain, neck and shoulder pains and aches and general muscle soreness. You will need more than one treatment to see the results for that. Moreover, bamboo massage helps to relax your body and mind helping you manage symptoms of anxiety, depression and insomnia at the same time as making you alert and fresh in your mind.
- Increased local circulation
- Improved blood flow to surrounding tissues.
- Greater ability to transport toxins and waste products from the area.
Warm Bamboo provides a fantastic tool, creating a sense of depth to the massage without putting extra wear and tear on the therapist’s hands.
Warm bamboo massage is very similar to the hot stone massage. Just like during a normal session, a therapist will use bamboo canes which will vary in size. However, the major difference is that the canes used will be quite warm. Warmth of the bamboo canes will help to penetrate deeper into the tissue which helps to achieve better and longer lasting results.
Bamboo canes can simply be heated by placing them on a heating pad and covering them with a towel. It can also be heated on a specifically designed heating device. The heating process will depend on a therapist or clinic. Level of heat may also vary, however, usually it should feel quite warm but not uncomfortable.
During the application, regardless of whether you are having a normal or hot bamboo treatment, a therapist will use several kneading, rolling and pressing techniques on the body used in treatments such as Swedish massage, sports massage and deep tissue massage. The movement and flow of the techniques is the same as if a therapist would use their hands, but instead, it is performed with bamboo canes. Some of the techniques might feel stronger than others, it might depend on how achy and sore you feel on the day of your appointment.
