Cutera® Genisisplus® Laser Treatments
Our Cutera laser treats Warts, Nail Fungus and Scar Tissue
What should I expect when treated with the LASER?
Most patients describe the LASER treatment as a rubber band snap against the skin. A black and blue discoloration usually settles in for a few days following the treatment. Most patients will be able to resume normal activities immediately following each of their treatments.
In general how many treatments should I expect until the warts have completely resolved?
Expect about 4 to 6, or even 8, treatments before seeing total resolution of your warts. Each treatment should be spread 2 to 4 weeks apart from the last depending on the recommendations of your doctor.
What are warts?
Warts are non-cancerous skin growths caused by a viral infection in the top layer of the skin. Viruses that cause Warts are called human papillomavirus, HPV. Warts are usually skin-colored and feel rough to the touch, but they can be, dark, flat and smooth. The appearance of a wart depends on where it is growing.
How do you get warts?
Warts are passed from person to person, sometimes indirectly, with a growth period of several months before becoming noticeable.
Do warts need to be treated?
Warts that are bothersome, painful, or multiplying should be treated. Warts in adults often do not disappear as quickly or easily as in children.
