Laser Wart Removal.
Warts are horrible things and are very stubborn to get rid of.
Fear not….help is at hand!
Laser Wart Removal works deep down at the roots. No special preparation is needed. Usually only 1-2 sessions are needed.
Almost everyone has had a wart at some point in their lives, and about 10% of the population has them at any given time. Traditional treatments such as freezing with liquid nitrogen don’t always work. At Azure Medical, we have Laser Wart Removal available which is far quicker and more effective.
What causes warts?
There are more than 100 different subtypes of the human papilloma virus (HPV) responsible for warts. The common wart (verruca vulgaris) is generally harmless. In most cases they will eventually disappear but this can take a long time.
Since warts can be highly unsightly and embarrassing, a variety of treatment options are commonly used to remove them, including topical treatment with various creams from the chemist, or freezing them with liquid nitrogen. The problem is, these treatments often take a long time or require multiple treatments. The good news is that warts that are treated with Laser Wart Removal are removed after only 1-2 quick treatments.
One of the more troublesome and difficult-to-treat types of wart is the plantar wart (verruca), usually found on the soles of the feet. It tends to form on pressure points as a hard and often painful lump with small black specks in the centre. Plantar wart treatment is advised as early as possible since with time they become more difficult to remove and can even interfere with walking, running and mobility.

Guided by the light – laser wart removal.
Laser treatment of warts is very effective, particularly for plantar warts and other large or difficult-to-treat warts that have not responded to other methods. Nd:YAG (1,064nm) lasers have long been used for treating warts since they effectively target the dilated blood vessels at the base of the wart while simultaneously disinfecting the surrounding tissue.
