Laser surgery is a commonly used treatment for warts. The laser is used to destroy the blood vessels that supply the 疣, causing the wart to die and eventually fall off. This procedure is typically done in a doctor’s office or clinic and is typically performed by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
It is often considered more effective than other 脫疣 methods, such as freezing or topical medications, and has a lower risk of scarring. However, it can be more expensive and may require multiple treatments for complete removal.
Understanding the procedure of 激光脫疣
The procedure for laser surgery to remove a wart typically involves the following steps:
The area around the wart will be cleaned and numbed with a local anaesthetic to reduce pain and discomfort during the procedure.
The laser will be directed at the wart, destroying the blood vessels that supply it. This will cause the wart to die and eventually fall off.
After the procedure, the area will be dressed with a bandage to protect the treated area.
The procedure typically takes only a few minutes to complete, and patients can return to their normal activities immediately afterwards, but with some care and precautions.
As the wound is healing, the patient should keep the area clean and dry, and avoid exposing it to excessive moisture or heat. Patients may also be given instructions on how to care for the treated area at home.
Multiple treatments may be needed to completely remove the wart, and your doctor will advise you on the number of treatments required.
The procedure is generally considered safe, but like any medical procedure there are some risks associated with laser surgery, such as infection or scarring. Your doctor will discuss these risks with you before the procedure.
Pulsed dye laser for warts
Pulsed dye laser (PDL) is a type of laser therapy that can be used to treat warts. PDL uses a concentrated beam of yellow light to target the blood vessels that supply the wart, causing them to constrict and eventually die.
This leads to the death of the wart and it will eventually fall off. PDL is a safe and effective treatment option for warts and is often used as an alternative to other treatments such as cryotherapy or topical medications.
The procedure for PDL treatment for warts is similar to the procedure for other types of laser surgery. The area around the wart is cleaned and numbed with a local anesthetic to reduce pain and discomfort.
The laser is then directed at the wart, and the procedure typically takes only a few minutes to complete. After the procedure, the area will be dressed with a bandage to protect the treated area.
PDL can be effective for all types of warts and is particularly useful for larger or more resistant warts. It may be less effective for warts that are in areas with thin skin such as the face, because it can cause more burns or pigmentation changes. However, it is safe and has minimal side effects, such as pain, redness, and swelling.
It’s important to note that multiple treatments may be needed to completely remove the wart, and your doctor will advise you on the number of treatments required. Your doctor will also discuss the risks and benefits of PDL treatment with you before the procedure.
