What are warts?
Warts are small, non-cancerous, predominantly contagious growths within the skin primarily caused by the human papillomavirus. There are various types of warts, including plane, common, verrucas and seborrhoeic keratosis. Seborrhoeic keratosis are the only type of wart that is non contagious and is a symptom of aging, long term sun damage and genetics. At the Skin Specialist, we can successfully arrange a wart removal using our advanced treatments.
What causes warts?
Warts are caused by a viral infection in the skin cells. The virus is called the human papilloma virus and there are more than 100 types of HPV.
What treatment is needed to remove warts?
Wart removal from the skin uses the latest Advanced Cosmetic Procedure techniques. The treatment process requires the tip of a small probe to be used with a tiny energy current to remove the blemished area. The treatment itself is a little uncomfortable but easily tolerated. There are minimal after effects, with a little tightness and scabbing to be expected. Each treatment takes a minimum of 15 minutes
What results are expected?
