A wart is a small blemish with an uneven surface that can emerge anywhere on the body. Warts can look like a solid blister and have been known to maintain the shape of a small cauliflower. Warts are inevitably produced by viruses in the human papillomavirus (HPV) family. The manifestation of a wart varies on its location on the body and the thickness of the skin.
The downside to warts is that they can be agonizing, frustrating and bothersome. As many as 1 in 3 children and teenagers are likely to get warts, but for adults only 3 to 5 percent get them. This is most likely due to the fact that the immune system becomes better able to put off their growth over time. People with a weakened immune system are more likely to have warts.
Common Warts – These types of warts normally surface around the fingernails and on the back of the hands, but realistically can appear anyplace on the body.
Plantar Warts/Foot Warts – These types of warts originate on the soles of feet. Plantar warts usually develop into the deeper layer of skin because of the strain from walking and standing.
Flat Warts – These types of warts can occur anywhere on the body but are usually emerge on the face, forehead, and legs. In addition, flat warts are inclined to develop in bunches. In regards to treating warts, home remedies such as cryotherapy and salicylic will not work effectively to treat warts. But IPL (Intense Pulse Light) and Electrocautery are two common treatments that will effectively treat warts and that we use here at Mederm Esthetics & Laser Clinic.
During the treatment, our expert technicians use state-of-the-art laser equipment to precisely target the wart and surrounding tissue with controlled bursts of energy. This energy instantly vaporizes the wart, allowing the body’s natural healing processes to quickly eliminate the wart and heal the area.
In addition to being highly effective, our wart removal treatments are also completely safe and minimally invasive, with minimal discomfort and virtually no downtime. Whether you’re looking to eliminate a single wart or multiple warts, our experienced technicians are here to provide you with the personalized care and attention you need to achieve the beautiful, healthy skin you deserve.
Electrocautery can be a supplementary treatment for wart removal. Electrocautery uses electrical current which converts to a deep heat that burns the wart(s) from the root. Our staff utilizes this treatment to safely remove warts for those who suffer with the skin issue.
We use electrocautery to eradicate persistent warts such as plantar warts. The energy distributed to the wart is captivated by the blood cells of the warts. Focusing on the wart’s blood supply can progress to a weakening of the wart. With this treatment, it usually only requires one treatment and in some cases a follow up treatment may be necessary.
It is important to note that blistering, peeling, darkening, scabbing, flaking, itching, and pain of the wart can occur. This is only temporary and should resolve anywhere between 1-3 days.
The number of sessions may vary depending on the size and number of warts being treated. Generally, a few sessions are needed for removing small warts, while larger warts may require multiple sessions spaced a few weeks apart. Your skincare specialist can provide a more accurate estimate of the number of sessions required based on your individual case.
