Oceanside Foot Doctor Reveals the Best Way To Get Rid of Those Painful Warts On Your Feet

When you find your first wart, it seems like a small problem that is easy to ignore. It’s ugly, but you hope it will just go away by itself.

The reality is that warts can quickly become much more bothersome than you first imagined.

Warts can spread. They can become bigger — at an alarming rate.

And as warts expand and grow, they can be extremely painful. Depending on where your wart is located, you may have a hard time going about your day to day activities. Warts on the bottom of your feet (plantar warts) can make playing sports (or even walking) uncomfortable or painful. If you have a wart, or a small cluster of warts, it is important to address the problem before it has a chance to get worse.

Treatments For Warts

There have been dozens of treatments for warts in recent years, ranging from medical options from a dermatologist, to at-home or over-the-counter remedies. Many of them have one thing in common: the fact that most of these treatments do not work at all.

Getting rid of most types of warts is extremely difficult, especially with warts that penetrate deep below the surface of your skin, like the plantar wart.

Treatment option for these warts would typically involve repeated painful freezing procedures and scraping and digging at your skin. You would often have to be subjected to this awful procedure every week until the wart was gone, which could sometimes take months.

But who wants to take the time to visit the doctor every week, for months on end, and subject themselves to endless freezing-and-scraping, simply hoping the wart will eventually give up and go away?

An Incredible (And Incredibly FAST and EFFECTIVE) New Treatment Option For Eliminating Warts

The times have changed, and we now have much better treatment options available to us. Lasers are now being used to treat all kinds of problems, and warts are one of them. A laser is one of the quickest and most effective ways to get rid of your warts for good.

But not just any laser is appropriate or properly fitted to the job. Many lasers on the market simply aren’t strong enough. Others fail to deliver the right kind of beam in the correct way. They are lasers, perhaps … but not the right lasers.

The correct laser has to be powerful enough to destroy the virus causing the wart as well as cut off the blood supply to the wart. And it needs to do this safely and effectively.

One type of laser is perfectly suited for this job: the Fotona Nd:YAG 1064nm long-pulse laser. This laser uses a wavelength that has the capability of deeply penetrating below the surface of your skin, ignoring the melanin there (the skin pigment that would otherwise build up heat on the surface of the skin instead of allowing it to penetrate). A Fotona Nd:YAG 1064nm laser is able to target the blood vessels beneath the surface of your skin and heat them in such a way as to effectively cook the wart virus dead and simultaneously cut off the blood supply to your wart.

Unlike most laser treatments, the Fotona Nd:YAG 1064nm long-pulse laser has just the right wavelength and design to create the perfect laser beam that targets your warts and the blood supply beneath them without burning your skin.

Other lasers just aren’t able to heat the blood supply long enough, precisely enough, or with enough power to achieve real results.

Will The Laser Treatment Hurt?

When you compare the laser treatment to the other options for treating painful plantar warts, the laser option is relatively painless. Because of the heat being delivered, and because it’s going at a wart (which is already quite sensitive), you are sure to feel a few zaps during the treatment. But it’s over quickly. And it’s not that big of a deal. It’s over and done.

Just as the wart is then over and done.

The most common method of removing warts from the feet in previous years involved freezing the skin around the warts, and then scraping away at your wart for a good 10 to 20 minutes with a scalpel. Both the freezing and the scraping were very painful, even if the freezing partially numbed the surrounding skin. And the results were minimal. You might have to come back for 10 to 15 more visits before your plantar wart was actually gone.

With the laser you will definitely be able to feel the zing of the laser, but the actually process goes by very quickly. No topical anesthetics are even necessary. Also, a laser wart-removal treatment only needs to be performed once or twice, so you won’t have to go through the pain and discomfort again and again for months.

When you have a wart that will not go away on its own, like a painful plantar wart on the bottom of your foot, you really need to have it looked at by a podiatrist. Your doctor will suggest various treatment options, but the Fotona Nd:YAG 1064nm long-pulse laser is definitely the best choice to make. The Fotona laser procedures are safe, effective, and one of the fastest working treatments available.

If you want to get rid of your plantar warts for good and in the shortest amount of time, Fotona laser treatments are the way to go.
