STC Technologies has received 510(k) clearance from the US FDA to market its Histofreezer portable cryosurgical system for treating actinic keratosis and lentigo (liver spots). Acitinic keratosis is often a precursor to skin cancer and if treated early, remains harmless, according to the Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania-based company. The device consists of a canister of cryogen which is applied to the lesions through an attached foam bud and is also used for the treatment of other skin abnormalities such as common warts and genital lesions.
