Fast, Effective Treatment for Embarrassing Genital Warts
Many people suffer from genital warts, yet the subject remains quite taboo.
Common reactions include shame and embarrassment, even confusion about the facts. Unfortunately, as the issue of genital warts is rarely discussed in polite conversation, there remains a low level awareness of exactly what genital warts are and how they should be treated.
What Are Genital Warts
Genital warts are found on both men and women on, around or inside the genitalia:
- Women – most commonly on the outer labia or inner thighs; can also appear on the vagina, vulva, cervix, anus
- Men – most commonly on the penis; can also appear on the scrotum, urethra, anus, groin, thighs
They appear as flesh-toned or grey growths with a rough, bumpy texture. There may be just one, but sometimes they can grow in clusters.
They may cause no discomfort at all and may not even be noticeable. Sometimes they can become itchy. Depending on where they are they may be bothersome if “in the way”. Almost always they are unwelcome and embarrassing.
The virus can remain in the body and be passed on before warts become noticeable, or after they have disappeared.
What Causes Genital Warts
Genital warts are in fact a form of STI (sexually transmitted infection). They are caused by a virus known as the human papilloma virus (HPV). There are more than 100 different types of HPV, of which 30-40 can cause problems in the genital area. However, the vast majority of genital warts are caused by just two types, HPV-6 and HPV-11.
Just as warts are passed from person to person through contact, so genital warts are passed with body contact, usually during sexual intercourse.
Genital Wart Treatments
Cosmedics’ doctors offer professional genital wart treatment in their clinics. They use the latest techniques to remove the offending warts quickly with minimal discomfort and the least possible scarring.
Treatments for genital warts include:
- cryotherapy or freezing
- laser surgery for large, stubborn or groups of warts
If you think you may have genital warts, to learn more about how they can be removed, Cosmedics offer a completely private nad confidential consultation with one of their highly trained doctors. This appointment is £50 but that fee is redeemable against cost of treatment if it is carried out on the same day.
Same Day Treatment
At Cosmedics Clinics, genital wart removal treatments can usually be carried out on the same day as the consultation, saving the need for a return visit. They also offer wart removal, mole removal, cyst removal and a range of cosmetic and medical skin treatments.
The company has 5 skin clinics in London plus one in Bristol.
