Viral warts


 
 
A wart is a small, rough growth resembling a cauliflower or a solid blister. It typically occurs on humans’ hands or feet but often in other locations. Warts are caused by a viral infection, specifically by one of the many types of human papillomavirus (HPV). It is possible to get warts from others; they are contagious and usually enter the body in an area of broken skin. We are having excellent track record of completely healing any extend of lesion using long pulsed Nd YAG laser machine.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

CORNS/PLANTAR WARTS


 
 
Plantar warts are hard, grainy growths that usually appear on the heels or balls of your feet, areas that feel the most pressure. This pressure also may cause plantar warts to grow inward beneath a hard, thick layer of skin (callus). Plantar warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). Plantar warts are treated by occlusive dressing with high concentrated salicylic acid and the lesion debrided every third day till it becomes very thin and narrow ideally for laser treatment. It is finally removed either by Co2 laser or Nd YAG laser.
