Warts are contagious, benign (non-cancerous) growths that occur on the skin and are caused by the Human Papilloma Virus. They most commonly occur on the fingers, knuckles, and palms and feel firm to the touch. Most warts are harmless and will resolve on their own over a few weeks, but they can become bothersome and unattractive, thereby warranting a removal.
Verrucae are a form of wart that can occur on the soles of your feet. They are present under the skin and are distinguished by the presence of small black dots (blood vessels). Warts and verrucae do not typically cause pain, but they can cause itchiness. Over time, a verucca may become irritated and feel like stepping on a sharp needle.
The Royal Wharf Clinic uses the latest cutting-edge laser technologies to remove warts and verrucae. The procedure works by firing a highly targeted laser beam at the wart or verucca, which in turn heats up the blood vessels feeding to the area. Eventually, the blood supply is cut off, and the wart or verruca naturally falls off after a few weeks. If you’re troubled by any unsightly warts or verrucae and wish for a permanent solution, then contact us today to arrange a consultation with a member of our team.
Treatment takes approximately 15 minutes depending on how many warts or verrucae you have.
The duration of the recovery period following a wart and verruca laser removal can vary between individuals. The main factors we need to consider are; how many lesions must be removed, how sensitive a candidate’s skin is, and how big and where the lesions are. With that being said, downtime is often minimal and most people can go resume daily activities immediately after their procedure. Following treatment, the lesion will dry up in a couple of weeks, and the treatment site may turn black. This is normal and indicates the site is healing. Make sure to keep the area clean, dry, and away from the sun at all times. You may experience some itching around the area, but this will go away in a few days. You may be asked to attend another session to facilitate the removal of the wart, but some cases may be resolved after just one treatment.
