Some Warts Require Professional Removal

Posted .

Warts are typically caused by a dermal virus that causes an excess buildup of keratin in a localized area of skin. Most warts are gradually reabsorbed by the body after the immune system has mitigated the presence of the dermal virus.

However, this can be a long process. Which can have a negative impact on your self-image, if the wart appears on a highly visible part of your body.

Some hygiene manufacturers provide self-removal wart kits to help extract a cosmetically unappealing wart. However, many of these products are ineffective, or they can cause complications with skin damage, infection, and potential scarring.

In a situation like the wisest option is to set up a consultation appointment at Artistic Contours’s cosmetic surgery clinic. Dr. Mohammad Banki can then diagnose the nature and severity of the wart or warts.

There are different wart removal methods that he might recommend. This might include freezing the wart with spot specific cryotherapy or removing the unappealing wart with electrosurgery, or a cantharidin treatment.

In some cases, Dr. Mohammad Banki might recommend excising the wart with a scalpel.
