The new Health Canada approved GenesisPlus LASER for the targeted laser wart treatment.
The laser wart removal works by using laser light that specifically targets the pigment within the blood supply to the wart to kill the HPV virus. The Genesis Plus LASER is the newest generation “smart” podiatry-specific laser using the 1064 nm Nd:YAG technology which specifically targets the warty structure for optimum patient safety and comfort. Older generations of LASERs such as CO2 devices cause significant tissue damage resulting in a greater chance of complications such as scarring.
Older topical treatments for wart removal such as acids, blistering agents and liquid nitrogen have been used with varying degrees of success. These typically must be repeated on numerous occasions with significant patient discomfort and potential down time with greater likelihood of complications.
Leading scientists and medical professionals working together for 20 years with warts funding provided by the U.S. National Institutes of Health developed the technology in the patented Cutera Genesis Plus. Only the Genesis Plus LASER offers the latest advanced technology and safety features and is approved by both Health Canada and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for laser wart removal. Laser wart treatment usually takes only a few minutes and most patients experience minimal to no discomfort. Your comfort and safety are our priority. The warty areas are typically iced prior to the procedure or if a large wart, local anesthetic may be required. Most patients can simply walk in, have the procedure done, and then walk right out. Typically only one or two laser wart treatments are required so you can get back to your activities and enjoy life again without reservations.
The Genesis Plus LASER treatment is clinically proven, effective and safe. We at Ruba Bar Laser & Skin Care are helping clients eradicate their embarrassing and often painfully stubborn warts. Call us today for a consultation for your laser wart removal!
Aftercare laser wart removal at Ruba Bar Laser & Skin Care:
After laser wart removal, you may have a small wound or scab. If this part of your skin is not properly cleaned, on a regular basis, it may become infected. In most cases, simple soap and water should be enough.
In addition to keeping your wound or scab clean, you will also want to keep it covered. This will help, not only to keep it clean, but it should also prevent an infection from forming. When covering the wart area, it should be enough to use a regular bandage. Once your wound has started to heal, a scab may begin to form and new skin may start to grow. When this occurs, it is important that you leave everything alone. In fact, that is why it is advised that you always keep the area covered after laser wart removal. Picking or even touching the area could not only create an infection, but it could also hurt the healing process. If the healing process is interrupted, you may end up developing a permanent scar. With laser wart removal, there is a chance that a scar could develop. To lesser your chances of having a scar, you need to refrain from messing with the scab or new skin that begins to develop.
