What causes common warts?
Warts are skin growths caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). This common virus is transmitted through direct contact with an infected person or contaminated surfaces. While warts are mostly harmless, they can be aesthetically displeasing and cause discomfort, so it is advisable to get a proper wart removal treatment.
There are different genotypes of HPV that can cause warts in various parts of the body. The HPV genotypes most commonly associated with cutaneous warts are types 2 and 4, which typically affect the hands and feet. Other genotypes, such as types 6 and 11, are associated with genital warts.
At our dermatology clinics in Costa del Sol, we understand how frustrating dealing with warts can be. That’s why we offer an effective and safe treatment to eliminate them at the root.
One of the most advanced and successful methods we use is CO2 laser treatment. This involves the use of a high-precision laser to vaporize the tissue affected by the wart, completely removing it. Unlike other methods, CO2 laser penetrates deeper into the skin without damaging the surrounding healthy tissues, ensuring excellent results and a fast recovery. 
CO2 laser treatment offers multiple advantages. Firstly, it is a quick and non-invasive procedure that allows you to resume your daily activities without delay. Additionally, due to its precision, it minimizes the risk of scarring or damaging the surrounding skin. It is especially recommended for cases of warts resistant to other treatments.
It is important to note that, like any medical procedure, there may be potential side effects such as temporary redness and irritation in the treated area. However, these effects disappear quickly, and CO2 laser treatment is safe and effective.
