Many people can experience warts that can be highly disturbing and unaesthetic. There are many types of warts which appear on different parts of your body, but usually on your hands and feet. Plantar warts are also called verrucae and appear on the soles of your feet. They are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV) infection and they are known to be benign.

The most suitable environment for verrucae virus strains to thrive are swimming pools, public restrooms or locker rooms or any place high in humidity, so you have to be careful because it is important not to walk barefoot in public places, not even when you take a shower after your workout, it is safer to wear some slippers. All this information is important because verrucae can be a contagious skin disorder even through indirect contact, if for example you touch a towel, a razor or other personal items that someone with verrucae had touched before you did. And you can always re-infect yourself if you touch the verrucae and then other parts of your body and you must never touch or scratch the verrucae because you will spread the virus.

Verrucae can be really disturbing and that will surely affect you until you lose your confidence and self-esteem, because they can grow to be very ugly, and that is why we recommend you to contact our Renew Skin & Health Clinic for more information and verruca removal treatment. Sometimes they disappear in time but this differs from person to person. Verrucae can be present up to two years, and this might just be too much time for you to bare them.

The classic treatments for verrucae removal are not always that effective, but you can try using salicylic acid, duct tape, chemical treatments, or even cryotherapy by freezing the skin cells. But if they get worse, spread, change their appearance, cause you pain, distress or start to bleed, then you really have to contact our Head Office and schedule a specialized consultation at Renew Skin & Health Clinic and the experienced dermatologists will carefully attend you and find solutions for your problem.

The CO2 Laser treatment for verruca removal uses laser beams that work precisely on the affected area. This cosmetic procedure is performed by the experienced dermatologists at Renew Skin & Health Clinic under local anesthesia with carticaine-chloride or 2% lidocaine-chloride. The CO2 Laser therapy is known to be an excellent, painless and quick non-surgical treatment for verrucae removal with amazing cosmetic results, requiring no downtime and leaving minimal to no scarring whatsoever. It acts solely upon the lesion, efficiently penetrating the necessary depth of the dermis (as verrucae are usually pushed into the deeper layers, due to permanent pressing on the soles of the feet, mainly while walking), cutting off the blood supply to the affected cells and altering the HPV strain DNA and thus completely eliminating the skin issue.

It is very important that you give these unaesthetic and painful verrucae the attention they need because if you don’t act appropriately and on time, you could end up with highly unaesthetic marks that may be too difficult to treat. That is why we warmly recommend you to contact our Renew Skin & Health Clinic for more information so you can decide if you will undergo a verrucae removal CO2 laser treatment and regain your self-esteem.
