Warts, medically known as verrucae, are a common dermatological issue that can affect anyone, regardless of age or lifestyle. These unsightly growths can not only be aesthetically displeasing but can also cause discomfort and pain. At The Foot and Ankle Clinic of Australia, we understand the challenges posed by warts and offer advanced treatment options to help you regain healthy, pain-free feet.

Understanding Warts

Warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), which enters the body through small breaks in the skin. Once inside, the virus stimulates the rapid growth of cells on the outer layer of the skin, leading to the development of warts. The appearance of a wart can vary depending on its location on the body and the thickness of the skin. Common symptoms include thickened skin, red or dark discoloration, raised and rough lesions, blisters, painful skin, and sometimes bleeding.

Treatment Options

At The Foot and Ankle Clinic of Australia, we offer a range of effective treatment options to address warts and alleviate associated symptoms.

Salicylic Acid & Debridement Therapy:

This treatment involves the use of salicylic acid combined with debridement to gradually remove the wart. Debridement is the process of removing dead or damaged tissue from the affected area. Salicylic acid is applied daily to the wart, while debridement is performed during weekly consultations. This therapy is typically pain-free and highly effective.

Cryotherapy:

Cryotherapy involves the application of liquid nitrogen to freeze the wart, causing it to die and eventually fall off. While some pain may be experienced during and after the procedure, cryotherapy is a cost-effective option that typically requires weekly appointments for optimal results.

Genesis Plus Laser Treatment:

Our clinic also offers Genesis Plus Laser Treatment, which utilises advanced laser technology to target and destroy the wart tissue. This treatment is highly effective and may require only one session, depending on the size and nature of the wart. With minimal contraindications and no downtime, Genesis Plus Laser Treatment offers a convenient and efficient solution for wart removal.

While some discomfort may be experienced during certain wart removal procedures, our team at The Foot and Ankle Clinic of Australia is committed to ensuring your comfort and safety throughout the treatment process.
