One of the problems with warts is that they are spread by the HPV virus. Once it gets into the skin, it divides rapidly, causing warts to grow and spread. Unfortunately, most of us will end up with warts at some stage in our lives. While no one likes it, it’s important to remember that they can be removed quickly and easily.
At The Bay, we use lasers to heat and destroy the blood vessels that supply the wart, helping to stop the spread and kill it off completely. The procedure only involves mild discomfort, is minimally invasive and we can discuss how many sessions we think you’ll need during your initial consultation.
Verrucae are simply warts that are on the underside of your foot. Because of where they are, they tend to cause more issues and are uncomfortable to walk on.
The process to remove them is the same as the wart treatment. The laser targets the blood vessels that supply it, heating them up and sealing them off. The virus itself is made up of proteins, so heating them up quickly denatures its DNA and kills it before you have the chance to pass it on to other people.
