Dermatofibroma Removal

Dermatofibroma removal is a procedure in which a dermatofibroma, also known as benign fibrous histiocytoma, is surgically removed from the skin.

The procedure typically involves cutting and removing the growth in its entirety using local anesthesia.

The affected area may be stitched up afterward, and antibiotics or other medications may be prescribed to help reduce the risk of infection.


Symptoms of dermatofibroma include a small, firm bump on the skin that can range in size from a few millimeters to several centimeters.

It is usually purple or brown and may have a slightly dimpled surface.

The bump may be itchy or tender to the touch.


Dermatofibroma is typically caused by long-term irritation or trauma to the skin, such as a bug bite, cut, or scrape.

Other possible causes may include an allergic reaction, infection, or genetics.


Treatment options for dermatofibroma include cryotherapy (freezing), surgical excision, and laser therapy.

In some cases, doctors may recommend a “watch and wait” approach to see if the lesion resolves on its own.

How to prevent dermatofibroma from happening again:

To prevent dermatofibroma from occurring, it is important to protect the skin from any sources of trauma or irritation.

This can be done by avoiding direct contact with rough surfaces, wearing long sleeves and pants when outdoors, using sun protection such as sunscreen and hats to limit ultraviolet (UV) exposure, and avoiding certain chemicals.

Additionally, it is important to keep the skin moisturized and healthy to avoid any inflammation or irritation that could lead to dermatofibroma.

Cryopen is the most cutting edge and cryosurgical tool on the market today. It uses linear compression cooling technology to target and eliminate skin abnormalities such as sunspots.

Cryosonic guarantees you results with no need to worry about scarring. CryoPen provides a safe treatment environment for both the consultant and the patient when treating skin pigmentation. To date, cryosurgical treatments have been largely ineffective in achieving the desired results, but this new treatment has changed all of that.

Cryopen treatment uses a cryogenic probe to freeze and destroy the Dermatofibroma. This process quickly and safely removes the Dermatofibroma, without damaging the surrounding skin or tissue. During treatment, a small amount of liquid nitrogen is applied directly to the growth with a precision-controlled cryogenic probe that freezes it for several seconds. The extreme cold kills the cells of the Dermatofibroma, which are then shed naturally from the body over time.

The benefits of using Cryopen treatment include: reducing pain and discomfort, reducing redness and inflammation, removing warts and other skin-related issues with minimal side effects, providing a quick and easy solution for skin issues, and reducing the risk for scarring. It is also less costly than other treatments, such as laser treatment.

You can expect minor discomfort during cryopen treatment for Dermatofibroma. The area of skin affected will be numbed with a local anesthetic before the procedure is performed. During the procedure, a handheld device called a Cryopen will direct a beam of liquid nitrogen onto the affected area of skin. This freezes and destroys the unwanted tissue. Afterward, you may experience some redness or swelling in the treated area, but this should subside within a few days.

Cryopen treatment takes approximately 10-20 seconds to remove a Dermatofibroma.

No, cryopen treatment does not require anesthesia. It is a minor procedure that can be done without anesthesia.

You can return to normal activities immediately.

The risks and side effects of cryopen treatment include pain, blisters, minor bleeding, skin infection, hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation (permanent darkening or lightening of the skin), and scarring. Other rare side effects can include nerve injury, eye damage if it’s used near the eyes, and breathing difficulties.

The recovery period after cryopen treatment depends on the size and location of the treated area. Generally speaking, patients may experience some redness, swelling and tenderness in the area for a few days after treatment. In most cases, these symptoms should subside within 7-10 days. However, it is important to follow your clinicians instructions for aftercare to avoid any potential complications or infection.
