Warts are viruses that reside in the skin. They are spread by direct contact and can multiply and penetrate deeply in the bottom of the foot. Topical chemical agents and debridement (scraping) is a simple way to take care of warts in the early stages. As the wart grows and multiplies, it sometimes becomes necessary to excise them and cauterize the base to prevent reoccurrence.
New Laser Technology For Warts
The latest state-of-the-art treatment for warts is pulsed dye laser therapy (PDL).
- No Surgery
- No Injections
- No Post-Op Dressings
- Minimal/Mild Discomfort
PDL works by shining a beam of laser light on the wart. The pulse of laser energy affects the blood supply to the wart and it eventually disappears. Treatment usually takes less than 30 seconds. It’s safe for children and adults.
