Wart Removal in Oklahoma City, OK

Warts are small skin growths that usually occur on the fingers or hands. It’s important that you can identify when a wart is bothering you and begin treatment immediately because warts are transmitted through touch. There are many different ways your dermatologist at Gawey Dermatology in Oklahoma City may recommend removing a wart that’s bothering you, so it’s important to talk to them as soon as possible to figure out which form of removal is right for you.

Wart Removal Procedure

First, your dermatologist will examine the wart to be sure that it’s a wart that is bothering you. Once they’ve confirmed that, they can help recommend forms of treatment to remove the wart and help you feel comfortable again. Warts can go away without treatment however it can take a year or two and may cause other warts to develop around that area. Your dermatologist will take the location, severity, and preferences into account when figuring out which form of treatment will work best for you.

Some common forms of removal include:

  • Salicylic Acid- Your dermatologist may recommend a medication that contains salicylic acid. This method will remove small layers of the wart one at a time until it is completely removed. This is usually most effective when it’s combined with freezing.
  • Freezing (Cryotherapy)- Your dermatologist will apply liquid nitrogen to the wart which causes a blister to form around and under the wart.
  • Minor Surgery- Your dermatologist may be able to cut off the affected tissue and remove the wart.
  • Laser Treatment- The laser will burn the affected tissue so that it cauterizes, and the wart will eventually fall off.

Wart treatment varies for each person, depending on the severity and location of the wart, and can help you feel comfortable in your own skin again.
