Wart Treatment Laser & IPL

Warts are unseemly blemishes that appear on our skin out of nowhere. One day we may have clear, beautiful skin only to wake up the next day plagued with an ugly wart. There are many types of warts and each can be eradicated with laser wart removal treatments.

What are warts?

Warts are an infection that affects the top layer of skin, generally caused by strains of HPV. The human papillomavirus attacks the outer layer of our skin through a cut or scratch. Once the virus enters the body, it leads to the growth of cells on the outer layer of skin. Because the cells grow rapidly on the outer layer, warts can form so quickly that you will not see them coming.

laser wart treatmentLaser wart removal treatments are ideal for all types of warts:

  • Verruca Vulgaris: the most common type of wart, found on the nails of the hands and feet
  • Verruca Filiformis: usually grow on the face and neck
  • Periungual: grow around the fingernail or toenail, if left untreated can lead to loss of cuticle and fungal disease
  • Subungual: grow under the nail and cause damage to the nailbed when left untreated
  • Plantar: effects the balls of the feet and heels

What treatments are recommended for wart removal?

At IGBeauty we use the Lumenis IPL laser and the Nd:Yag laser. Both laser wart removal treatments are FDA and Health Canada approved, safe for all skin types and require minimal downtime after the procedure. Nd:Yag and Lumenis IPL lasers are non-ablative which means they do not cause any harm to the skin’s surface because only the targeted areas are affected by the heat of the device.

Lumenis IPL: How does it work?

This type of laser treatment is ideal for removing plantar, Verruca Vulgaris and Verruca Filiformis warts. Lumenis IPL (intense pulsed light) uses special filters to determine which part of the dermis (the skin underneath the top layer) can absorb the light enough to disintegrate the wart. Then, the tissue is targeted and heated, causing damage to the wart. The wart will vanish completely after 3-4 sessions. In some cases, plantar warts respond to the first round of treatment and disappear without requiring follow-up sessions.

Nd:Yag: How does it work?

One of the most popular laser wart removal treatments for the periungal and subungal type, the Nd:Yag laser uses dual-wavelength technology to heat the affected area. The heat is strong enough to weaken the parasitic fungi that is causing the wart without triggering damage to the surrounding skin and tissues. After one treatment you will see a difference in the size of the wart and after two treatments the wart will disappear. The Nd:Yag laser also prevents the wart from reoccurring and leaves the skin smooth without any scarring.

If left untreated, warts can damage your skin and leave you more susceptible to fungal and bacterial infections. Please contact IGBeauty to book an appointment for laser wart removal treatments.

Love the atmosphere and the service in this salon! More than a year ago I tried hair removal and the result was amazing!
