What Are Warts?

Ever notice those little bumps on your skin that just won't budge? You're not alone! Warts, caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), are a common concern, particularly for children and young adults They can be contagious and often seem to pick and choose where they appear, be it on the hands, feet, or anywhere else.

The peak incidence of wats occurs between 12 and 16 years old, causing pain and possible risk of spreading around the body. While some may vanish on their own, others can stay for years.

Laser Wart Removal: A Safe and Effective Option

While over-the-counter treatments exist, they can be frustratingly ineffective. The NHS for itself, does not provide funds for the removal of common warts, but here at Solihull Medical Cosmetic Clinic, we can help you to get rid of these unwanted verrucae with our top-technology equipment for laser wart removal.

Benefits of Laser Wart Removal

    • Effectiveness: Laser wart removal is an often-permanent solution, and they can offer full removal as little as one or two sessions.
    • Minimal Scarring: Different from surgical wart removal, laser wart removal offers a small change of scarring. It is also a precise method, not causing minimal damage to surrounding areas.
    • Fast Treatment: As mentioned, as little as one or two sessions, you may be able to be free of the verrucae. The session itself is also very quick, taking only a few minutes per wart removal.
    • Recovery Time: Apart from some swelling and redness in the area after the procedure, the downtime for the laser wart removal is minimal.
    • Minimal pain: Compared to overall treatments to remove warts, laser wart removal offers minimal pain. There may occur some discomfort during the procedure, but topical creams may be applied to numb the area.

How Does Laser Wart Removal Work?

Our advanced technique utilises a long-pulsed Nd:YAG laser to target the wart's blood supply, causing it to shrink and eventually fall off naturally. Unlike many over-the-counter options, laser wart removal provides a safe, precise, and often permanent solution for both children and adults, eliminating discomfort and improving your quality of life.

Recovery and Aftercare

The recovery and downtime for the laser wart removal are fairly quick. Right after your laser wart removal, it is normal for it to turn grey and then blacken due to the laser's interaction with the wart tissue, but no need to worry as this is a sign the treatment is working. The good news is this darkened area will naturally fall off within 3-4 weeks.

Over the next few days following the procedure, the treated area will begin to heal. As the healing progresses, your skin texture and tone will gradually return to normal. Remember, following good aftercare practices will optimise this healing process and minimise any potential discomfort.

Here are some of the aftercare suggestions:

Wound care: keeping the area clean and dry, gently washing with mild soap and water.

Bandages: Bandages may be recommended depending on individual needs.

Over-the-counter pain relievers: As some discomfort may be present after the procedure, some pain relief can be used to help.

Monitoring: Always watch for any possible sign of infection such as increased redness, pain, swelling, or pus.
