There’s nothing quite like the appearance of a foreign bump on our skin to throw us into a panic. Could it be a rash, an insect bite, a … wart? Skin irregularities like warts cause a great deal of distress and embarrassment. Thankfully, warts are easily treated at Cutis.
Warts have a hard scaly surface and often contain a black dot in the centre. Where they appear on the body depends on their cause. Seborrheic keratoses or senile warts differ from viral warts. They appear with age, beginning as slightly raised pale or brown spots which progress into thickened, dark, wart-like lesions. They can appear anywhere on the body.
Warts are caused by infection with any of 70 strains of the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). In the case of seborrheic keratoses, there is no established cause. It is considered a degenerative condition for which some people may be genetically predisposed.
As a centre of aesthetic dermatology and facial cosmetic surgery, Cutis is equipped to treat and remove viral warts (location dependent) and senile warts. A professional consultation will establish the appropriate treatment plan to suit your needs. Methods and procedures to treat warts may include cryotherapy, electrocautery, excision and/or prescription medication. Solutions for wart removal at Cutis are safe and effective to make short work of these irksome growths. We welcome you for a consultation or wart treatment. Call us today.
