Wart Removal

Warts are small rough growths on the skin. They are caused by a viral infection in the skin cells. The virus is called the human papillomavirus, there are more than 100 types of HPV.

How many different types of warts are there?

There are a number of types of warts. Below are some of the most common wart problems that the Sandalwoods Blemish & Wart Removal Clinic treat on a daily basis:

  • Common warts: Raised growths which have a hard and uneven surface, these are the most familiar type of wart and usually appear on the hands and feet.
  • Soles of feet: please see our "Wart Removal" page for more on Verrucas.
  • Periungual warts: Warts found around the tips of fingers or toes.
  • Subungual warts: These appear under and around fingernails.
  • Flat / plane warts: These are smooth warts with flat tops mostly occurring on the hands or face.
  • Seborrhoeic warts: These aren’t actually warts at all, they are non-cancerous growths appearing on the outer layer of skin, can start pale in colour becoming darker through to dark brown. See seborrhoeic keratosis.
What treatment is needed to remove warts?

To remove a wart from your skin, we use the latest Advanced Cosmetic Procedures, also known as Advanced Electrolysis. The treatment process requires the tip of a small probe to be used with a tiny energy current to remove the blemish.

The treatment itself is a little uncomfortable but easily tolerated.

Warts initially turn white and need to be kept clean post treatment.

What results can I expect?

Warts can be successfully removed, leaving a clearer, healthier looking skin. This treatment is suitable for men and women both on the face and body.
