Warts are growths caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), which commonly appear on an adult’s face, neck, or skin-fold areas. There are a total of 130 types of HPV, but the most common warts are caused by Type 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 10 and others.
These common warts carry low risk – they are different from genital warts caused by sexually transmitted diseases, nor are they related to cervical cancer or carcinogenesis.
It is impossible to eradicate warts completely by traditional laser treatments. In fact, theses treatments may even cause depressed scars on your skin. Compared to traditional electrocautery treatment, the carbon dioxide laser provides higher accuracy in mole and wart removal thanks to its flexibility in energy level and pulse duration control. This treatment can gasify redundant skin tissue layer by layer, resulting in smoothened skin without damaging the surrounding area. Only in very rare cases will carbon dioxide laser cause scaring.
Wart removal is a medical procedure. Contact your insurance agent for any potential insurance claim issues.
