Warts are caused by a virus, the HPV or the Human papillomavirus that infects the skin as a result of skin-to-skin contact like a handshake. Unlike moles, warts are less dangerous but are more embarrassing to others. The LA Laser Center Wart Removal has identified 100 HPV strains and 5 varieties of warts that affect the different parts of the body.
According to LA Laser Center Wart Removal, warts have a lifespan and can disappear from your body in a few months or years. Based on studies however, warts have been classified into 5 varieties. These are: flat warts, filiform warts, plantar warts found on the soles of the feet, common warts found on the hands and other parts of the body, and periungual warts that develop under the toenails and fingernails.
For ordinary treatment of LA Laser Center Wart Removal, the use of salicylic acid or a freezing spray that is available over-the-counter can be used, but the center cautions that the latter is entirely different from the freezing treatment done at the LA Laser Center Wart Removal by certified professional dermatologists.
For warts that do not respond to ordinary drug store medications, the LA Laser Center Wart Removal recommends a set of treatments that are not laser-based and include the following:Cryosurgery, that uses liquid nitrogen to destroy the virus and skin cells affected by HPV; the use of Cantharidint medication for children’s warts, a wart blistering technique; high level immunotherapy using intralesional candida antigen that stimulates the immune system against warts; the use of more powerful medications known as Aldara, Imiquimod, Veregen and Zyclara.
The final option is laser surgery for warts that are hard to eliminate using the procedures and medications mentioned above. The LA Laser Center Wart Removal is similar to a wide range of treatment for actinic keratosis and acne scar treatments like Laser Acne Treatment, Microdermabrasion, Photodynamic Therapy (PDT), and Fractionated Co2 Laser.
