What Is Laser Wart Removal?

Warts are small, raised bumps caused by a common type of skin virus called HPV. While typically harmless, they can sometimes linger for up to five years, and patients may desire to have them removed. Ohana Aesthetics and Wellness uses Harmony XL PRO laser technology to remove warts through heat and light application. This safe, energy-based treatment involves a shorter, more comfortable recovery period than traditional surgery, healing the skin on the hands, feet, genital region, and other parts of the body. While laser wart removal may not neutralize all the virus particles causing warts, some researchers believe that laser wart removal is better than surgical removal at preventing warts from coming back. Treating patients in Orem, UT and the surrounding area, Ohana Aesthetics and Wellness is here to provide you with options for clearer, healthier skin.

Laser Wart Removal FAQ

What causes warts?
Warts are caused by human papillomaviruses (HPV) that cause skin cells to multiply erratically. This results in a raised bump on the skin. Warts are generally harmless, but some can be found in sensitive areas, causing itching or discomfort. Patients may wish to have them removed to eliminate this discomfort, or simply for aesthetic reasons.

How does laser wart removal work?
Laser wart removal is an HPV treatment that uses intense light to destroy the skin cells, blood vessels, or virus particles that make up a wart. There are several types of lasers our team may recommend, each targeting different components of the wart. The type used depends on the location and size of the wart, as well as other factors that may determine which treatment will be most effective. Essentially, the heat from the laser will eliminate damaged tissue and potentially even destroy the virus particles themselves. Some types of laser therapies require several treatments for results to take effect.

Is laser wart removal painful?
For smaller warts, patients should experience minimal pain. Some patients describe the heat of the laser as a rubber band snapping against the skin. Larger warts may require a local anesthetic to numb the area. After the procedure is over, you should experience little discomfort, but over-the-counter pain medications should suffice to eliminate any remaining soreness. Your skin should be healed in 2 – 4 weeks, sometimes with a small scar.
