The appearance of warts on the face, feet, genitals and other parts of the body causes discomfort when walking, having sex, and aesthetic dissatisfaction with the appearance. Warts are considered a viral skin disease that indicates a weakened immune system. These skin growths also tend to spread and enlarge, which is why wart treatment is necessary. Warts are usually neither painful nor dangerous, but when they appear in a visible place, for example, on the hands, face or neck, they look unaesthetic, and when they grow on the sole, they can cause discomfort when walking. Therefore, it is very natural that we want to get rid of them as soon as possible. In order to do this, surgical procedures are not necessary. For this, we can use liquid nitrogen, otherwise known as “cold” therapy (cryotherapy), or a laser.
Who is this procedure suitable for?
If you have warts that you want to remove, then wart removal can probably be done for you. The procedure is not performed on pregnant and lactating women with temperature or fever.
What is the procedure?
Initially, the doctor evaluates the wart and performs dermatoscopy. The test helps determine whether the wart is malignant. Only benign warts are removed by laser, and malignant warts are removed surgically. The doctor precisely aims the laser beams at the cells that make up the wart and destroys them.
