A skin wart is an infection by viruses in the human papillomavirus (HPV) family. A skin wart can grow on the face or anywhere on the body, and its appearance depends on its location. It can look like a small cauliflower or a small solid growth with a rough texture. Plantar warts affect the feet, and on pressure areas they get pushed into the skin, giving them a flat look. These can prove to be painful.
The traditional method to treat skin warts was to use an ablative laser to destroy the wart. However, to carry out a complete removal, the surrounding skin will also get damaged, leaving a depressed scar. The newer method I now practice is to use a vascular laser to cut off the feeding blood vessels to the wart. The wart itself dies and the surrounding skin remains intact.
