Cutera GenesisPlus Laser Therapy

At Northeast Foot & Ankle, we use laser technology every day to help our patients overcome painful, embarrassing, and frustrating conditions. Lasers are not only highly effective for many applications, but also extremely safe!

It sounds like science fiction, but it really isn’t. Lasers, after all, are simply focused beams of light. Light is a form of energy, and that energy—when harnessed correctly—can be used to achieve many medical benefits. Pain relief, swelling reduction, even fungicidal!

One of the lasers we use at our office is the Cutera GenesisPlus Laser Therapy, and it has become an important component of our treatment protocols for warts and scars.

Cutera GenesisPlus Laser Therapy

Cutera GenesisPlus for Plantar Warts

Laser therapy is also an extremely effective option for eliminating pesky foot warts, and one that is much more comfortable and less risky than traditional remedies like cryotherapy or using peeling acid on the skin.

The energy and heat emitted by the laser can essentially seal off the blood vessels that are supplying the wart, cutting it off from the nourishment it needs to survive. Once it’s completely cut off from the blood supply, the wart will simply disappear on its own—no need to cut it out or freeze it off.

Getting laser therapy for your wart is mildly uncomfortable—comparable to a bee sting—but it is less painful than most other options and the symptoms dissipate very quickly.

As with other treatments, you may need several sessions spaced out over a few weeks to fully eradicate the wart, but the good news is that there’s no bleeding, no downtime, and no home care required. The laser only targets the wart and doesn’t cause any collateral damage to healthy cells, either.

After your 10- to 15-minute appointment, you can go straight back to your regular activities.

Cutera GenesisPlus for Scar Tissue Reduction

This particular laser is also incredibly useful as a way to reduce the appearance of scarring from wounds, surgical incisions, burns, and other sources. It can even reduce raised scars (hypertrophic scars) and keloids.

The light pulses from the laser stimulate natural collagen production, which accelerates the regeneration of upper layers of skin—and in turn causes your scars to fade. Treatment sessions can be repeated every 2-4 weeks as necessary to achieve the best results.

As with other uses of the Cutera GenesisPlus Laser Therapy, side effects are extremely minimal, there’s no downtime, and no special home care instructions you’ll need to follow. There may be mild swelling, and slight reddening of the skin after a treatment session. This is normal and temporary.
