IPL Lasers

  • Primarily target blood vessels feeding the wart, cutting off its supply and causing it to fade.
  • Minimize damage to the surrounding skin, ensuring only the wart is treated.
  • Suitable for warts found on both softer skin areas like the face and tougher regions like the soles of the feet.
  • May require multiple treatments depending on the size and stubbornness of the wart.

CO2 Lasers

  • Utilize a highly focused beam of light to vaporize the wart tissue precisely.
  • Highly effective for deeper or more resistant warts that do not respond well to other treatments.
  • Promote quicker healing with a controlled method that minimizes the risk of infection.
  • Typically involve fewer treatment sessions than other laser types.


  • Electrocautery burns the wart with an electrical charge, while curettage involves scraping off the wart with a sharp knife.
  • Often used in combination to ensure complete removal of the wart tissue.
  • Effective for common and plantar warts.
  • Immediate results, although can be slightly more painful, requiring local anesthesia.

What Can I Expect During A Wart Removal Treatment?

Pre-Treatment Consultation: Before your wart removal procedure, you’ll undergo a consultation with our specialists. During this session, we’ll discuss your treatment objectives, go over your medical history, and examine the wart closely. This ensures that the procedure is perfectly customized for your specific needs.

Skin Cleansing: We’ll start by thoroughly cleansing the area around the wart to remove any dirt or bacteria. This crucial step helps avoid any adverse reactions and ensures the treatment targets only the wart.

Laser Application: Once the skin is clean and prepared, the chosen laser will be applied to the wart. Our certified technicians will adjust the settings of the laser according to the type and location of the wart to achieve the best results.

Sensation During Treatment: You might experience a sensation akin to a rubber band snapping against the skin during the treatment. To minimize any discomfort, we may use cooling methods or apply a numbing cream.

Duration of the Procedure: The length of the wart removal session can vary depending on the wart’s size and complexity but typically lasts from a few minutes to half an hour. Our team will closely monitor the treatment to ensure your comfort and the procedure’s success.

Post-Treatment Care: Immediately following the procedure, we’ll apply a cooling gel or a protective bandage to ease discomfort. You’ll receive comprehensive aftercare instructions which will include advice on how to care for the skin, tips to avoid sun exposure, and keeping the treated area clean.

How To Prepare For A Wart Removal Treatment?

Before your wart removal appointment at Mederm Esthetics & Laser Clinic, follow these preparation guidelines to ensure a safe and successful treatment:

Avoid Sun Exposure: Stay out of the sun and do not use tanning beds for at least two weeks prior to your treatment. Sun-tanned or sunburned skin can pose a higher risk of complications during laser procedures.

Discontinue Certain Skincare Products: Cease using any skincare products that contain irritants such as retinoids, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), or exfoliants at least a week before your treatment. These ingredients can increase skin sensitivity to the laser.

Stay Hydrated: Ensure you are drinking plenty of water in the days leading up to your treatment. Hydration is key to maintaining healthy skin and may help enhance the healing process after your procedure.

Adhere to Pre-Treatment Guidelines: Follow any specific pre-treatment instructions your clinic provides. This might include shaving the area around the wart the day before your appointment or avoiding medications and supplements like aspirin, NSAIDs, or omega-3 fatty acids that can interfere with blood clotting.

Plan for Recovery Time: While wart removal typically requires minimal downtime, you may experience some redness, swelling, or slight irritation. It’s wise to avoid scheduling major events or physical activities for a couple of days post-treatment to allow your skin time to recover.

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.
