Warts are more common than you may think. While anyone can develop a wart, they often cause embarrassment, and they can be painful. If you have developed a wart, Innovation Dermatology is pleased to offer a variety of effective wart treatments including wart removal, as well as treatments to create overall youthful, healthy-looking, and beautiful skin.
Warts are benign growths caused when a virus has come in contact with injuries to the skin. Warts are more likely to develop in areas where a cut or scratch has allowed the virus to enter the body and infect the skin cells. They are also contagious for a period of time and are very common.
Some warts will resolve on their own over time, without any treatment, whereas others are difficult to get rid of without treatment. If a wart is left untreated for too long, it can enlarge and spread.
In order to receive a consultation with a dermatologist, you will require a referral from another doctor. With a referral, your visit is paid for by Alberta Healthcare.
How a wart is treated depends on many factors. Innovation Dermatology can offer a variety of wart removal options including cryosurgery, medical, and laser treatments. Your doctor will decide what is best in terms of wart removal treatment.
