Warts are small skin growths that are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), which infects the top layer of the skin. There are more than 40 different kinds of HPV (other sources estimate more than 60, maybe as many as 80 different kinds). It can be transmitted from one person to another either by direct contact or indirect, when both people are in contact with a surface such as floor or desk. HPV can also be transmitted by the same individual from one place on the body to a different place.Laser treatment of verrucas has many advantages. The treatment does not corrode the skin around the verrucas like wart plasters and cold therapy do.
Laser has no side effects and is a sterile treatment. We have several types of laser treatments for verrucas, and a person can go on foot without problems soon after treatment.
