About Laser Treatment
Cosmedics’ doctors offer advanced laser technology to destroy the virus causing warts.
Treating warts can be a very long and frustrating experience. Over the counter remedies such as solutions and home-freezing sprays may appear a cheap alternative but are often ineffective at completely resolving the problem and if they don’t work, the problem is likely to get worse.
For those who’ve failed elsewhere, laser is an excellent option for removing warts or verruca.
Laser penetrates the skin to destroy the papillomavirus beneath the skin’s surface, so that the wart is finally stopped.
At Cosmedics Skin Clinics, all wart treatments are done by our doctors as this is a medical treatment and without expert care can cause problems.
The treatment itself is surprisingly comfortable. Depending on the area being treated, the doctor may numb the area in advance, but this isn’t always necessary. After treatment, the skin will blister for a few days then go red. Wounds generally healed in under a week.
All London clinics also offer cryotherapy treatment, which freezes the warts. For particularly stubborn warts, we offer surgery. All treatments are on a day case basis and most can be done on the same day as your appointment at our ‘See & Treat’ clinics.
We also now offer treatment for verruca – plantar warts:
