In brief: Cryotherapy

Cryosurgery is best suited for use in patients with light skin and for treatment of lesions in most non–hair-bearing areas of the body.
Benign skin lesions that are suitable for freezing include actinic keratosis, solar lentigo, seborrheic keratosis, viral wart, molluscum contagiosum, and superficial squamous and basal cell skin cancers.
