Warts are caused by a virus called Human Papillomavirus (HPV). This particular virus attacks the top layer of skin that causes warts to grow rapidly. You can get this virus if you damage or cut your skin and touch someone who has it afterwards. In addition, you can also get this virus from sharing razors, towels, and many other personal-care items. Today, we will discuss how to get rid of skin warts using some quick tips.
One of the things you can use to get rid of warts is acetic acid. This particular substance irritates the affected zone by provoking the activation of natural immunity. It is advised to limit the usage if there’s a strong irritant effect. Acetic acid can be used to treat warts on your hands, feet and body. However, you shouldn’t use them to treat your face. You can use this acid in its pure form or in recipes.
If you want to remove your warts quickly, then you can try electrocoagulation. Electrocoagulation removes warts by using high-frequency current. It is important to remember that this method is painful. You do not need to worry though because it is done under the influence of anaesthesia. The scab you might get after the procedure will be gone in a week. However, there is a high risk of getting scars; which is why this method is not used to remove warts on the facial area.
You can also have a cryotherapy for a quick wart removal. In this therapy, cryogenic nitrogen is used to remove a skin formation. The process of this therapy can be aggressive and soft. The aggressive variant will cause the formation of subdermal blister while the soft variant will activate the local immunity as well as make the defect red. The water blister you might get can be removed along with warts. However, if you decided to let it be, it will be gone in a few days. Moreover, this method is not painful, especially if your wart is small.
Another thing you can try is laser therapy. Laser therapy is done under the influence of local anaesthesia, just like electrocoagulation. There are some types of laser that can be used to remove warts, they are:
- Yttrium Aluminum Garnet Laser or YAG. This laser has a lower scarring possibility in addition to having a smaller zone of the thermal lesion. However, it is not used to remove warts on face.
- Pulsed Dye Laser has a painless procedure. This laser rarely leaves any scar.
- Carbon-Dioxide Laser is used to treat subungual or periungual warts.
Those are some wart removal tips; laser therapy, cryotherapy, electrocoagulation and acetic acid. To undergo cryotherapy, electrocoagulation, and laser therapy, you can contact an aesthetic clinic and consult them about your warts to determine which method is the best for you.
