Grey's Anatomy Star's Lip Cancer Battle - Liquid Nitrogen treatment

Just read this article about Liquid Nitrogen being used to treat chapped lips prob suffered by Eric Dane from Grey's Anatomy - McSteamy.

I wonder if we can use the same treatment to cure our lips. I remember someone on this forum mentioning about liquid nitrogen treatment, some time back.

Below is the link to the article

Eric Dane was diagnosed with skin cancer just last month. After successfully having treated the disease, the actor is now opening up to OK! magazine about his struggle.
The Grey's Anatomy star first detected something was wrong when he looked in the mirror and saw what looked like chapped lips but clearly wasn’t.

“I went to my dermatologist,” Dane tells OK!. “He said it was malignant tissue caused by sun damage."

The malignancy was treated by freezing the cancerous tissue off with liquid nitrogen. Unfortunately for Eric, the actor had a severe reaction to a cream given to him for his lip after the treatment . “My skin is very sensitive and my lip was traumatized by the procedure I had to go through.”
That doesn't sound very pleasant!

His lip’s overreaction to the medication created a painful scenario that made eating difficult, if not impossible. “I didn’t eat very well for a couple of weeks and lost a bunch of weight,” Eric explains, estimating that he dropped at least 10 pounds off his 6'1" frame while dealing with his cancer.
Thankfully, though, Dane is better now.
We need McSteamy around for a while!
