Vbeam Pulsed Dye Laser For Warts (Including Plantar Warts)
SOMA Skin & Laser offers laser treatment for warts, including hard-to-treat plantar warts. Many warts (also known as verruca) can be resistant to topical treatments and even to freezing. This is especially true of warts on the soles of the feet (plantar warts) and warts on the fingertips and around the nails. For warts in these locations and resistant warts in other locations, laser treatment with the pulsed dye laser is often effective. Sometimes a single treatment is sufficient, but multiple sessions are sometimes required.
Hand Warts Removal During laser wart treatment, the wart is first numbed with a topical anesthetic. During the laser treatment there may still be some discomfort but it is usually well-tolerated. Immediately after laser treatment of the wart it will turn a dusky blue/purple like a bruise. This will heal over several weeks, but may first form a small ulceration in the skin. This is normal and part of the wart destruction process. Your physician will provide you with wound care instructions as well as a home care treatment for the wart to assist in its destruction.
At SOMA Skin & Laser, treatment of warts by laser is often covered by insurance.
