MOLES AND VARUCA
Viral warts are an irritation that from time to time appear on our body and tend to affect all of us at some point during our lives. Some people will try to remove them in the early stages using creams or perhaps ‘old wife’s remedies’. These are generally proven to be ineffective and employed either without treatment, or perhaps when previous treatments have failed where it is possible that one wart leads to another.
Laser treatment is a proven treatment solution and a specialism of our clinic that can eliminate warts, removing them in seconds completely painlessly, and generally patients are overwhelmed by the effectiveness of the procedure.
WART REMOVAL LASER TREATMENT
This procedure is short and is performed by the doctor without the need for a local anaesthetic by the doctor. We work with a CO2 laser, the laser beam is pointed at the infected tissue, which causes warts to die, “says MUDr. Allen Dimov, surgeon at Chirkoz SK. During the procedure it’s important to get deep into the tissue to ensure effective treatment of the root in order to avoid any possibility of reappearance. A scab appears naturally on the treated area, which falls off after a short period of time. “Laser treatment is also highly effective when performed on more difficult areas to access, notably around the eye and intimate parts of the body” adds Dr Allen Dimov.
Due to the relatively high costs associated with laser technology, regular surgical and dermatological clinics tend not to use this cutting-edge treatment. Patients therefore need to consider private clinics such as CHIRKOZ SK for access this advanced treatment for effective wart removal.
SPOON “Curette Method”.
Our clinicians occasionally use the procedure known as the ‘Cuvette Method” for viral wart removal.
The procedure which also removes warts permanently is as follows:
The treatment area is thoroughly disinfected, and a local anaesthetic applied. After the local anaesthetic takes effect the doctor removes the wart in depth and in full using a sharp specialised instrument known as a ‘Cuvette’ which resembles a spoon, hence the name. However, the wound does not require stitches, instead the doctor applies antibiotic cream to accelerate the healing process. Within 10-14 days the wound heals, and new tissue will grow to cover the potential scar.
Occasionally, in more extreme cases, the “wart“ requires surgical treatment, this is especially applicable for larger or deeper growths. The procedure is still performed under local anaesthetic and typically takes around 20 minutes to perform. If the wart is removed from the sole of the foot, there are some restrictions on movement that we recommend to the patient for a limited period.
