    Entry point

    The HPV needs an entry point. It could enter through cracks in dry skin, through cuts, scrapes or through softened skin.

What causes warts?

Warts are hardened, rough skin lumps caused by an infection known as human papillomavirus (HPV). Although these are harmless, they are contagious and can spread through contact with others.

Human papillomavirus (HPV) causes the cells in the skin to multiply very quickly at a certain point, forming a lump of skin. While the lesions usually spread through contact with others,  not everyone who is exposed to HPV will develop them.

Symptoms and Types

The most telltale sign is that their appearance is often times relatively small, hardened rough lumps that are round and elevated from the skin.

Flat warts which most commonly appear on the face and neck have a thin and thread-like appearance.

Flat warts are a type that can appear on the face, neck, chest, knees, hands, wrists or forearms. They are formed in clusters of up to several hundred tiny lumps at a time.

Periungual warts are more irregular than other kinds, usually affecting the edges of fingernails and toenails. They can also develop under the nails.

Wart Removal Treatment

Our clinic offers multiple options for wart removal. For this, we utilise the Co2 Full Ablative Laser. This works by delivering energy through a narrow range of wavelengths and causes temperature elevation in the target area, resulting in tissue evaporation or ablation. Ablative lasers effectively treat a broad range of skin conditions by removing all or part of the skin.

The body’s natural healing processes then replace the damaged skin with new and healthy tissue. CO2 lasers have been considered the industry’s ‘Gold Standard’ for ablation.
