Wart Removal Treatment At Skincare Clinic

What are warts?

Warts are small skin growths that can form on the feet, but this isn’t the only place you’ll find one. They can appear anywhere on the body. The most common areas are the hands and fingers, according to Mayo Clinic.

The human papillomavirus (HPV) causes warts. It’s a contagious virus that spreads from person to person through direct and indirect contact.

Interestingly, some warts don’t immediately develop after exposure to the virus. Sometimes it can take up to 6 months after exposure for one to appear.

Also, not everyone exposed to the virus develops a wart. If you have a strong immune system, your body might be able to fight off the virus.

Some warts can look like corn, in that they’re small, flesh colored, and rough to the touch. A key difference, though, is that warts appear grainy, too, and have black dots or pinpoints sprinkled around them.

Warts can be painful and develop in clusters, yet they’re harmless and gradually disappear on their own.

How many types of warts are there?

There are five major types of warts. Each type appears on a different part of the body and has a distinct appearance.

Common warts

Common warts usually grow on your fingers and toes, but can appear elsewhere. They have a rough, grainy appearance and a rounded top. Common warts are grayer than the surrounding skin.

Plantar warts

Plantar warts grow on the soles of the feet. Unlike other warts, plantar warts grow into your skin, not out of it. You can tell if you have a plantar wart if you notice what appears to be a small hole in the bottom of your foot that is surrounded by hardened skin. Plantar warts can make walking uncomfortable.

Flat warts

Flat warts usually grow on the face, thighs, or arms. They are small and not immediately noticeable. Flat warts have a flat top, as if they’ve been scraped. They can be pink, brownish, or slightly yellow.

Filiform warts

Filiform warts grow around your mouth or nose and sometimes on your neck or under your chin. They are small and shaped like a tiny flap or tag of skin. Filiform warts are the same color as your skin.

Periungual warts

Periungual warts grow under and around the toenails and fingernails. They can be painful and affect nail growth.

Who are at high risk for warts?

Anybody can develop a wart or a corn, yet certain people appear to have a greater risk.

Since a virus causes warts, having a weak immune system can make you susceptible to these growths. Those at risk include:

  • Children
  • Young adults
  • Those living with chronic conditions that weaken the immune system, such as HIV

Risk factors for a corn include wearing ill-fitting shoes or having a bone deformity in your feet, like a bunion or hammer toe. This can cause your toes to rub against each other or on the sides of your shoes.

When do you need to see a doctor for a wart exam?

You should see your doctor if:

You have warts on your face or another sensitive part of your body (e.g., genitals, mouth, nostrils)

You notice bleeding or signs of infection, such as pus or scabbing, around a wart
the wart is painful

The color of the wart changes

You have warts and diabetes or an immune deficiency, such as HIV/AIDS

Can I treat warts at home?

Although warts usually go away on their own, they are ugly and uncomfortable, so you may want to try treating them at home. Many warts respond well to treatments available at the drugstore.

Some things to remember:

  • You can spread warts to other parts of your body, and they are contagious to others. If a treatment requires that you rub the wart with a fingernail file or a pumice stone, don’t use that utensil on any other part of your body, and don’t allow anyone else to use it.
  • Don’t try to treat warts on your feet if you have diabetes. See your doctor. Diabetes can cause loss of sensation in your feet, so you can easily injure yourself without realizing it.
  • Don’t try to remove warts on your face or another sensitive part of your body (such as your genitals, mouth, or nostrils) with at-home treatments.

Freezing treatments

These over-the-counter treatments spray concentrated cold air (a mixture of dimethyl ether and propane) onto your wart. This kills the skin and allows you to scrape away the surface of the wart. These treatments are a good choice if you want to try to remove a wart quickly, but they aren’t strong enough to remove all warts.

Treatments and patches containing salicylic acid

You must use these products every day, often for a few weeks. They’ll work best if you soak the wart in water for about 15 minutes before you apply the treatment.

Duct tape

Some people have had success treating warts with duct tape. The process involves covering the wart with a small piece of duct tape for several days, then soaking the wart, and, finally, rubbing the wart to remove the dead skin. This approach can take several rounds of treatments to work.

How do doctors treat warts?

If your wart doesn’t respond well to at-home treatments, your doctor may be able to help. Remember, always see your doctor if you have diabetes and have warts on your feet.

Liquid nitrogen

Your doctor may freeze your wart with liquid nitrogen. This can be a bit painful, but usually works well. More than one treatment may be required. Freezing causes a blister to form under and around your wart. This lifts the wart away from the skin within about a week.

Surgery

Surgery is usually only considered if a wart hasn’t responded to other treatments. Your doctor can cut away your wart with a surgical knife or burn it with electricity. You’ll need to receive a shot of anesthetic first, and these shots can be painful. Surgery may also cause scarring.

Can warts be prevented?

There are ways to prevent warts and keep them from spreading to other parts of your body if you already have one. Follow these simple guidelines:

  • Wash your hands regularly, especially if you’ve been in contact with someone with warts.
  • Don’t pick at your warts.
  • Cover warts with a bandage.
  • Keep your hands and feet dry.
  • Wear shower shoes (flip-flops) when in a locker room or communal bathing facility.

0-09-2019 "I would love to thank Dr. Hun Kim Thao and her amazing staffs for helping me through a skin improving journey over an almost year while I was staying in HCM. I received acne facial and peel every other week and the service was superb! Each procedure was well explained and Dr.Thao was very attentive. I loved her holistic way of approach to improve patient's skin. Not only she prescribed very effective acne gel but also shared great tips such as reducing the amount of simple carb intake, cutting down sugar, and most importantly highlighting the importance of getting enough sleep. She even recommended a well known doctor in town who could help me with my sleeping problem. In addition, the price was very reasonable and I was very happy with all the service I got from Grace Skin Clinic. Oh Dr. Thao even asked her staff to make me a cup of tea one day as she she thought I looked overly exhausted. I was very moved. How warm hearted she is! I will definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to check up their skin and improve their skin. Amazing place!"

Youngjoo Shin – Expat living in HCM 

This place is amazing; they help me improve my terrible skin condition which had affected my identity, and my confidence for many years. I have been visiting Grace Clinic during summer time for the past two years, and every time I am here, they create a different program in order to fit my skin condition and my limited time. Furthermore, people from Grace Clinic always greet me with warm hearts. They once invited me to have boba tea with them which made me no longer feel like a customer but a friend which it has created a friendship overtime. I cannot stress how highly I would recommend this place. Again, they are amazing and very professional. There is one thing, you can do walk-in just fine but it would be better if you schedule the appointment so they can prepare and create the best service for you.

An Nguyen – HCMC University Student (Overseas)

I absolutely love the ladies of Grace Skincare. I was staying in Saigon for 6 months and came here with acne and a congested skin from my travels. So happy I found them! Their prices are reasonable compared to other “expat” clinic that I went to. I bought the 10 facial package for a really good price and am really happy with the result of my skin after following all of their consultations. Acne has cleared up and now we’re focusing on my other skin concerns such as dark spots and hyperpigmentation. I highly recommend this clinic. They truly want you to walk out with skin you feel confident in. I’m going to miss this place and the ladies I got to connect with during my time here.   Amazing results · Expert facials · Great deals · Professional products ·Licensed skin care professional · Experienced skin care professionals

Deanna Hong – HCMC, Yoga Instructor

Hey guys it’s been 3 weeks since we came for our treatment. I can honestly say it’s the best I have had done.  Andrew and I look fresh without being overdone. We both had people say how refreshed we look after our holiday. Honestly they wouldn’t be saying that if they knew how much beer and yummy Vietnamese food we consumed when we were there. I can honestly say Andrew and I will be back. And I am telling all my friends how fantastic you guys are and how professional the consultation was. I have yet to find someone in Australia who is so thorough. Thank you, Kylie

Ms Kylie, HCMC, tourist

I had a acne treatment here last month and now it's improved a lot. I must say that this place is very professional, modern equipment, especially the thoughtful doctor! I'm impressed!  

Ms Nana, HCMC, tourist

Grace Skincare Clinic has a great and friendly service and that have a centrally located clinic. I highly recommend them!

Alexis Linh Ly, HCMC- Business Owner

The owners are wonderful people. I had a good experience and can sincerely and highly recommend everything about Grace Skincare Clinic!

Sandra Menhart – New York, NY, Visiting Profesor

I was so embarrassed with the scars and pigmentation marks on my face. These are from old sports injuries and harsh products on my legs from childhood accidents. I am fed up with using so much concealer makeup on my face and am never able to wear a skirt with confidence. I heard about the Grace Skincare Clinic pigmentation lightening treatment from a friend.  I took 6 treatments & used skincare product as Dr. Thao  instructed  and now my skin is beautiful and permanently clear. It was worth every penny.

Laura May

as Tet is coming, I highly recommend this place for a weekend retreat, skin detoxing or even an urgent package to soothe and smooth your skin. I got back my healthy skin after just 02 week following the instruction of Dr Thao Hun and it cost me 200,000 for medical consultation fee only. Wonderful!
