Some people have warts that are very painful and bleed as well. This is why Wart Removal in Dubai has become a popular treatment to get rid of warts permanently.
Here’s all you need to know about the treatment.
Warts Removal Candidates
You can be a good candidate for Warts Removal treatment if:
- You have one or more warts on your body.
- Your warts bleed or cause pain when bumped.
- Your warts are easily irritated.
- Your warts are spreading to other areas of the body.
Warts Removal Goals
The aim of a Warts Removal Treatment in Dubai is to give you a smooth and clear skin by:
- Removing any skin warts through cryotherapy, laser surgery, or chemical peels.
- Eliminating pain and skin irritation associated with warts.
- Prevent the warts to spread to other areas of the body.
- Causing no or minimal scarring associated with wart removal.
Wart Removal Techniques
Warts can be annoying, as well as painful. In many cases, they may also spread to other areas of the body and even bleed. They are contagious to the extent where they can be transferred to another person on contact. Thus, it is best to get them removed at a surgeon’s clinic. This ensures that you remain free of infections and other health issues.
A wart can be removed through a number of techniques, including the following.
- Cryotherapy (Freezing) –Cryotherapy involves freezing a wart using a very cold substance, usually argon gas or liquid nitrogen. During the treatment, a medical professional applies the solution onto the wart, either through a spray device or a cotton swab. This causes blisters to form in and around the wart. The dead tissues then slough off within a week or so.
- Laser Surgery – For warts that are large or widespread, a laser treatment can be ideal. It involves applying a local anesthetic on the skin and then using an intense beam of laser light to burn and destroy the wart tissues. The laser passes through the upper layer of the skin (the epidermis) and kills the small blood vessels that feed the wart near the dermis (the middle layer of skin). This starves the wart until it dries up and falls off. The laser only kills the wart affected area and does no damage the surrounding tissue.
- Chemical Peel with Salicylic Acid – Chemical Peel performed with Salicylic acid is an effective treatment to get rid of warts. Salicylic acid is basically a keratolytic medication, which means it can dissolve the protein that makes up the wart and the thick layer of dead skin that surmounts it. When combined with cryotherapy it can give excellent results.
During your pre-op visit, our plastic surgeon will review your medical history, discuss the available options and will enlighten you on the process. He will also provide a thorough list of pre-surgical instructions. Some steps that you will have to take before wart removal surgery in Dubai are:
