hello friend, melanosis and hyperpigmentation will not improve with cryotherapy or cryosurgery. He needs some kind of cream to change the pigmentation, possibly even steroid injections if they are cosmetically unappealing to you. Depending on the extent of your hyperpigmentation in the number of lesions, it could cost for removal about $10 per lesion. Although I am not sure where in your-city to go.I hope that This is helpful.
