Dear Valued Distributor Partner:
CryoSurgery takes pride in always striving to be better. Quality improvement is a never ending, ongoing project for us. We recognize that we must be the best we can be, so our distributors can be the best they can be. This is exactly why we are changing the look of our product.
We are replacing our current nozzle with a sleek new actuator.
- The new improved nozzle dispenser has an enhanced appearance and a better feel.
Along with our pleasing new look we are also adding more Cryobuds to our kits.
- The 50 Freeze Kit (VFK50) along with the 65 Freeze Kit (VFK65) will now include 50 instead of 30 CryoBuds. There will be 20 Large, 20 Medium, and 10 Small CryoBuds.
- The Introductory Kit (INTRO) will now include 30 instead of 15 CryoBuds. There will be 10 Large, 10 Medium, and 10 Small CryoBuds.
Prices for the 65 Freeze Kit, 65 Freeze Canister, and 100 Freeze Canister have all been reduced!
In the next few weeks, your physician and healthcare customers will begin to see new graphics start appearing on all of our products.
Lastly, we are adding more freezes to our canisters.
- The Introductory Kit (INTRO) will now include 135 ml as opposed to 120 ml per canister.
- The 65 Freeze Kit (VFK65) along with the 65 Freeze Canister (VFC65) will now include 175 ml as opposed to 162 ml per canister.
- This will increase the number of freezes by 5-6 when using our CryoCones or 10-12 when treating multiple lesions using our CryoBuds.
CryoSurgery is constantly working to provide consumers with the very best quality product. We appreciate all of your services, and we look forward to your future purchases.

In this post, we will be comparing Verruca-Freeze to three other cryosurgery products: Brymill-CryAc®, Premier CryOmega®, and CryoProbe®.
This isn’t meant to act as a comprehensive list of all competing products, but rather a set of examples of how Verruca-Freeze® matches up with competitors in terms of equipment, cost, maintenance, evaporation issues, training, and environmental-friendliness.
Brymill Cry-Ac® is a popular liquid nitrogen solution for cryosurgery. Large clinics may find it convenient, however, many small practices will encounter fees, cumbersome equipment, and the need for extensive staff training. Here’s how Brymill Cry-Ac® stacks up next to Verruca-Freeze®:
|Expensive equipment to purchase including liquid nitrogen tanks and cryogun||No expensive equipment to purchase|
|Upfront costs in excess of $2,000||Upfront costs anywhere from $245 to $899|
|Requires regular refills of liquid nitrogen tank due to up to 3% evaporation per day||Requires zero maintenance|
|Evaporation issues||No evaporation issues|
|Extended training required before use||No classes, hazmat fees, or certifications necessary to use|
|Liquid Nitrogen requires special handling and delivery||Non-flammable and environmentally friendly (no CFC’s)|
CryOmega® touts a convenient and effective direct application of nitrous oxide at an economic price point. However, CryOmega® is a considerably higher priced form of cryosurgery, has only a six month to one year shelf life once activated, and still uses the chemicals involved in nitrous oxide lesion removal.
|Extremely high cost per freeze: $14.17 – $21.25||Low cost per freeze: $3.00 – $6.89|
|Must reuse the product before cartridge expires once activating||Can reuse canisters until empty and they will not expire for more than 6 years – different size canisters offer from 35 to 300 freezes|
|Low number of uses per cartridge||High number of freezes per canister|
|Short cartridge shelf life of 6 months to one year once activated||Due to our positive shutoff valve, Verruca-Freeze has an indefinite shelf life if it is stored in a cool location|
The makers of CryoProbe® offer a similar method of cryosurgery as the makers of CryOmega®, but at an even higher price. Users of CryoProbe® will have to pay up-front costs of over $2000, and regular expensive refills.
|Expensive equipment to purchase – over $2000||Get started for as little as $245|
|Requires regular refills||Requires zero maintenance|
|Low number of uses per cartridge||Many canister options from 40 – 300 freezes|
|Short cartridge shelf life – Evaporates a few weeks after punctured.||Due to our positive shutoff valve, Verruca-Freeze has an indefinite shelf life if it is stored in a cool location|
|Only 120 seconds of freeze time per 8g cartridge||Many different sized canisters provide anywhere between 35 – 300 freezes|
|Warranty: Unknown.||Backed 100% by CryoSurgery, Inc.|
