The appearance of grows like warts on the skin can be annoying. While these growths have traditionally been removed using a salicylic acid solution, laser treatment can be just as, if not more, effective. Laser wart removal takes little time to perform and can help prevent warts from coming back. To learn more about this option and schedule a session, get in touch with our Fort McMurray team.

What Causes Warts?

Warts can be identified easily by their characteristic grainy, rough texture. These growths are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). While some strains of HPV are contracted through sexual contact, others can be spread through casual touch or shared objects like towels. Biting your nails can also cause warts to appear on your fingertips and spread through the rest of your hands.

What Are the Treatment Options?

Laser wart removal is an effective option when addressing warts. This treatment can take anywhere from 15 minutes to two hours, depending on the severity of your problem. The major benefit of choosing lasers is that the procedure is non-invasive and is sometimes better tolerated than alternative methods. Some reports indicate that laser treatments can also reduce the likelihood of warts returning after removal.

What to Expect?

During your treatment, you will be asked to sit back and relax while we handle the process. As the laser goes to work, the light against your skin will heat up and destroy the blood in the tiny vessels inside the wart. Without blood, the wart will die and fall off. The laser’s heat may also attack the virus that causes the wart. The procedure has been said to feel like a rubber band snapping against your skin.
