Laser Wart & Verruca Treatment

Warts and Verruca, though common, can be frustrating and unsightly skin growths. Conventional treatments like topical creams and freezing may not always provide the desired results. Fortunately, there’s a modern and effective solution – Sophia Wyatt Skin Clinic can treat Warts and Verruca using Advanced Electrolysis and laser treatments helping you bid farewell to these pesky skin growths.

What are Warts and Verruca?

Warts and verruca are skin growths caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). They often appear as small, raised bumps with a rough texture and can develop on various parts of the body, including the hands, feet, and even the face. These growths can be stubborn and difficult to eliminate.

How Laser Treatment Works

Laser Wart and Verruca Treatment utilise the precision of laser technology to target and remove these growths, it works by:

  1. Precise Targeting: The laser emits a focused beam of light energy that is absorbed by the blood vessels within the wart or verruca.
  2. Vessel Coagulation: The absorbed energy causes coagulation of the blood vessels, leading to the reduction of blood flow to the growth.
  3. Tissue Elimination: As the blood supply decreases, the tissue of the wart or verruca is gradually eliminated. Over time, the growth will shrink and eventually disappear.

Benefits of Laser Treatment:

  • Precision: Laser therapy precisely targets the affected area, minimizing damage to surrounding healthy skin.
  • Effective Results: Laser treatment can be highly effective in eliminating warts and verrucas, even those that have not responded to other treatments.
  • Minimal Discomfort: Most patients experience minimal discomfort during the procedure, with some describing it as a mild stinging or tingling sensation.
  • Quick Procedure: Each laser session is relatively quick, often lasting only a few minutes.
  • No Downtime: There is generally no downtime associated with the treatment, allowing patients to resume their daily activities immediately.

The Treatment Process:

  1. Consultation – The journey begins with a consultation with one of our experienced highly trained clinicians who will assess the warts or verruca, discuss your expectations, and determine the most suitable treatment plan.
  2. The Treatment – During the session, the laser device is applied to the affected area, delivering precise bursts of light. Protective eyewear may be provided.
  3. After Care – Following the treatment, you may experience mild redness or swelling, which typically subsides within hours to a day. We will provide personalised aftercare advice depending on the area and size of treatment.
  4. Multiple Sessions: Achieving optimal results may require multiple laser sessions, we recommend a minimum of 4-6 treatments spaced at 2 weeks apart.

FAQs

How does laser treatment work for warts and verruca?
Laser therapy works by delivering focused laser energy to the blood vessels within the wart or verruca. This damages the blood vessels, reduces blood flow to the growth, and leads to the elimination of the tissue over time.
Most patients report minimal discomfort during the procedure. The sensation is often described as a mild stinging or tingling feeling, which is usually well-tolerated.
The duration of a treatment session depends on the size and number of warts or verrucas being treated but usually ranges from a few minutes to 30 minutes.
The number of sessions required varies depending on factors such as the size and type of warts or verrucas, as well as individual response to treatment. Multiple sessions, typically spaced several weeks apart, may be necessary for optimal results.
Laser treatment can effectively eliminate warts and verrucas, but it may take time for healthy skin to replace the treated tissue. In some cases, periodic maintenance sessions may be needed to prevent recurrence.
Common side effects include mild redness or swelling at the treatment site, which typically subsides within hours to a day. There is generally no significant downtime, and patients can resume regular activities immediately.
Laser therapy is generally effective for various types of warts and verrucas, but consultation with a healthcare provider or dermatologist is necessary to determine the most suitable approach for your specific condition.
Laser treatment for warts and verrucas is considered safe when performed by trained and experienced professionals. It offers a non-invasive alternative to other treatments.
Preventive measures include practicing good hand and foot hygiene, avoiding direct contact with warts and verrucas, and refraining from picking or scratching them to prevent further spread.
Laser therapy can be used to treat genital warts (condyloma acuminatum), but as non medics our insurance does NOT cover us to treat conditions in the genital area. It is essential to consult with a GP or dermatologist for proper evaluation and treatment.
