In the case of laser treatment, you will need 2 or 3 sessions to get the desired results. It is best to discuss your goals with the doctor during the initial consultation to avoid any future inconvenience.

Treatment Options for Warts Removal:
During the initial consultation, the dermatologist will tell you the treatment options, and you can select the treatment based on your goals and choice. Some of the best treatment options are:
In laser treatment, the skin expert may apply numbing cream or local anesthesia to avoid discomfort. He then directs the laser light towards the targeted area to destroy the wart. After completing the procedure, he may apply a soothing lotion to minimize the burning sensation. You may require multiple laser treatment sessions depending on the size of the treatment area and the number of warts.
Cryotherapy involves freezing warts by using liquid nitrogen. The dermatologist applies liquid nitrogen with the help of a spray or a cotton swab. This nitrogen will freeze warts, and it will fall off later. To get the best-desired results, you will need a few cryotherapy sessions.
Chemical peels are a non-invasive treatment for getting rid of warts. The doctor usually uses salicylic acid peeling solution. The chemical peel removes the upper damaged layer of the skin. And the warts are peeled off over time. The salicylic acid used in the solution also triggers the immune system to destroy the virus, which has caused warts.
In excision, the wart is removed with the help of the blade. It is a little painful procedure and should not be performed at home. Excision may lead to scarring if an unskilled person performs it.
