Though benign and essentially harmless, warts can still be annoying to look at. Their rough texture and unpleasant appearance make them an unwelcomed addition to one’s skin. If you have a wart and want it removed, our team at Sagebrush Dermatology can help. We provide liquid nitrogen for fast removal and spotless results.
What Causes Warts?
Warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). While some strains of HPV are contracted through sexual contact, others can be spread through casual touch or shared objects like towels. Biting your nails can also cause them to appear on your fingertips and spread through the rest of your hands.
What Are the Signs?
These small growths can be identified easily by their characteristic grainy, rough texture. Warts tend to be flesh-colored in most instances but can also appear white, pink, or tan and feature small black dots. Whether you have them on your fingers, on your face, or on your feet, the experience is never pleasant.
Treatments for Warts
One of the most effective treatments for warts is the use of cryosurgery. At our Mesa office, we rely on a liquid nitrogen solution to freeze warts. This effectively destroys them, leading to their gradual removal from the body without harming surrounding areas.
