Laser removal of warts and corns

Look for appointment times

Warts are viral, bumpy, spongy skin formations with an uneven, dense surface, in the center of which you can see small black dots – tiny blood vessels that are thrombosed. Warts can appear all over the body, face, and genitals, but most often they are located on the feet or hands. Warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV).

Corns are thickenings of the stratum corneum of the foot that extends deeper into the dermis. Corns can be located on the heels, soles, and toes. Pressure on the wart can cause pain. They arise from long-term pressure or friction on the foot – to protect the skin, the skin cells begin to intensively produce keratin, and as a result, skin thickening or corns are formed.

There are several over-the-counter solutions and patches for treatment, but generally, the most effective method is liquid nitrogen freezing (3-6 procedures every 1-3 weeks, sometimes more) and laser removal (usually 1 procedure) is more effective. The laser beam removes the skin formation completely without leaving a scar or it is less arousing. Sometimes formations on the skin can start to grow back over time and require repeated procedures.

How are warts and corns removed with a laser?

The laser procedure is painless – a numbing injection is used in the area where the formation will be removed. A laser treatment doctor directs a laser beam at the formation, which vaporizes it without damaging the surrounding skin. Bleeding does not occur because the blood vessels are closed with a laser beam during the procedure. It is possible to precisely control the depth of contact and remove only the tissue of the skin formation.

After removal, a crust forms on the skin, which disappears over time. After the procedure, the removal site is treated again with an antiseptic, and a patch is applied.
