Warts, Walnut Creek

Wart removal treatment

Warts develop due to HPV, and they may be single warts or a cluster of warts that spread on the skin. They can become unsightly, especially when they develop in areas such as the face, hands, and feet. They may also rub and become uncomfortable if they form in certain areas of the face and body. Because of this, patients are often interested in how they can remove their warts. Dr. M. Christine Lee offers several methods of removal for warts:

  • Wart freeze – cryotherapy is often a fast and simple way to remove a wart in a non-surgical manner. It uses a special agent that is applied for a few seconds onto the wart to essentially freeze it. While it does not remove the wart right away, the wart will fall off within a week or so and will be fully treated at that point.
  • Wart heating – another option is to essentially “burn” the wart off. This may be chosen if patients have a cluster of warts that can be easily treated in this way.
  • Wart removal surgery – for larger or deeper warts, excision via surgery may be the primary option for a patient to quickly and easily remove the wart. Dr. M. Christine Lee provides this treatment and does her best to ensure that there is no scarring.
