Warts are a result of infection by human papilloma virus of the epidermis of the skin. The infection renders the epidermis to become extremely thick and rough. If left untreated, warts can spread to adjacent skin or distant areas. Multiple treatment modalities are used depending on the size and age of the patient including cryotherapy, cantheron, and curettage. Elimination of warts requires multiple treatments usually every 2-3 weeks. Depending on the mode of treatment, there may be significant down time or pain. Most treatments will not result in significant scarring. Book an appointment with us to find out more.
