In the case of external injury, a cotton swab is helpfulu

The reduced temperature destroys the affected cells due to three reasonsn Firstly, the ice crystals are at a temperature of -40 degree Celsius, which results in cell teara Secondly, presence of ice results in osmosisi This causes shrinkage of the cells, due to formation of icec The tumours are frozen due to reduced temperature, which is followed by the second procedure of thawingn The latter results in the inflow of water, thereby bursts the cellsl

Lastly, formation of ice within the cells results in suffocationo This causes a shortage of the blood thereby the affected cells ceases The temperature is maintained for ten minutes, as the average clotting time is around ten minutese The white blood cells act as scavengers in the removal of the dead cellsl It also enhances the immune systeme Cryotherapy causes scars in minimal amounts and prevents calcificationsn
