It can be really frustrating to live with the unsightly appearance of warts on your body, but it can be even more frustrating trying to get rid of them. The fact is that not every treatment will work for everyone. Some treatments take longer than others to work. Then there are those treatments that appear to work, removing the visible appearance of the wart, and yet the wart returns as soon as treatment ends. If you want to avoid the hassle of trying to find a treatment that works or if you want to skip the hassle altogether and head straight to a proven treatment, laser wart removal is the answer.
What Is It?
Laser wart removal, unlike many other treatment options available to you, is not a superficial treatment. Rather, the laser penetrates through the skin to the layers of skin where the wart originated. It targets the source of the problem for a direct and effective result. This is an FDA-approved treatment option that is known to give results. However, you should expect a treatment session to last about ten to thirty minutes, and you likely will need to plan on attending more than one treatment session for full removal of the wart.
Is There Pain?
There is a small amount of pain associated with laser wart removal. Many people describe the feeling to be similar to a bug sting or hot grease splattering on you. While most people can tolerate this pain just fine without anesthetic, most laser treatment sessions offer the option to have a topical anesthetic applied prior to the laser therapy. This will help significantly to lessen the pain, and so many will opt to have this anesthetic applied as a preventive pain control measure.
At one time, laser wart removal was associated with scarring and a lengthy healing process. However, laser therapy has come a long way, and now this option is widely known for offering results that include complete removal of the wart with generally no scarring. Each person is different, and so you should not trust an absolute guarantee of no scarring. However, most people today do not experience scarring, and most people heal from the laser therapy session completely in just a few days. This truly is a great way to get rid of your wart, and it is generally considered to be safe on most parts of the body, too.
Ok now that I’ve explained how laser treatment works, I can now say that this option for genital warts should be the worst case scenario. I’ve spoken to a number of people who’ve had the treatment done and they all said it was the worst experience they’ve ever had AND their warts returned a couple months later.
Instead of burning your warts away via a laser, I would recommend rubbing some Wartamine onto them instead. Trust me you’ll see the exact same results as you would with laser treatment.
