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.
