WART LASER SURGERY
Warts are benign growths that can occur anywhere on the body. Rough to the touch, they are extremely common and are caused by the human papilloma virus or HPV. Warts generally regress of their own accord, although they are not in a hurry to disappear and can hang around the skin for a couple of months or longer.
Zapping a wart with a laser beam is often considered by patients when all other treatments have failed, or if the warts are large and widespread. An intense beam of light is focused on the wart to burn and destroy it, and the procedure is usually carried out in a doctor’s office or clinic under a local anesthetic.
