Warts are small, noncancerous growths in the skin, caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). They are a common dermatologic complaint, affecting especially children and teenagers, but also being present in the adult age group. Although most warts disappear with time, their development is unpredictable, and they may spread to other areas of the body, so consulting a doctor and getting a wart removal treatment is necessary.
While there are many treatments available for wart removal, most of them have side effects, especially if they are not conducted in a professional manner. At Renew Skin & Health Clinic, our expert doctors and laser therapists can provide you with the latest medical procedure for wart removal: the ND: Yag laser treatment. The ND: Yag laser destroys the blood supply to the wart and denatures the DNA of the virus, by directing a high intensity light directly on the pathogenic cells. Therefore, not only that the wart will be removed, but the virus will also be destroyed and the surrounding tissue will get disinfected. It is a non-invasive, effective method, with minimum to no discomfort for the patient.
The first step of the Nd:Yag treatment for wart removal is discussing with one of our expert doctors, who will evaluate your medical history and your current health condition, in order to pursue the most effective method of approach for you. You will also be informed about the entire laser wart removal procedure in order to understand how the ND: Yag laser functions. Next, a local anesthesia is applied, which will not cause you any discomfort, and then it will take approximately 30 seconds to 2 minutes before your wart is removed. Depending on how many warts you have, it may take from 1 to 4 laser treatment sessions in order to achieve the optimal medical and cosmetic results. You will be monitored by our dermatologists during the whole period until the intervention is concluded. It is a simple, quick and safe procedure, with many advantages.
The best feature of the ND: Yag laser wart removal treatment is its precision. It does not affect the healthy tissue, which means that the recovery is much faster. You will be left with a small, almost indistinguishable scar, which will heal definitively in just one or two weeks. Another advantage is that it is a painless intervention, performed in a small period of time. Moreover, at Renew Skin & Health Clinic you will be surrounded by professional doctors, with extensive experience in this domain, which means it will be a safe procedure, with no risks of infection or side effects. Conventional treatment methods are usually invasive, have low efficacy, and need long recovery periods.
