Chicago’s Wart Removal Experts

It’s no surprise that the body’s largest organ hosts an equally large number of unusual growths. Bumps and discolorations can spring up from light exposure, diet, air quality, genetics, and too many other causes to list. But warts have a unique origin—the human papillomavirus (HPV). This most common STI (sexually transmitted infection) can be passed through contact or from our parents during childbirth. Even those who had the HPV vaccine can grow warts—large, raised bumps that compromise our confidence and our comfort.

Thankfully, at Skin MD, LLC, in Chicago, IL, we’re armed with the latest, most effective wart removal methods to help you reclaim your skin. Warts can last for months or even years at a time. In that span, other warts may sprout nearby. For your comfort and your peace of mind, a quick, in-office wart removal procedure is the easiest option. Don’t let large, unsightly warts hold you back from living authentically. Schedule your wart removal appointment today and let the expert dermatologists at Skin MD take care of it.

Types & Locations of Warts

As an STI, HPV can cause genital warts. But these large, skin-colored bumps can emerge nearly anywhere and may be triggered by cuts, infections, nail biting, and excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).

While there is no cure for HPV, there are many effective treatments for its symptoms. It’s important to remember that you can develop warts even if you’ve had the HPV vaccine.

Where Warts Grow:

  • Genitals: These warts can grow on or around the vagina, penis, or rectum.
  • Face: Warts can grow near our mouths or on our noses, cheeks, and foreheads.
  • Hands: Warts are most common on the hands.
  • Feet: When warts grow on the soles of our feet, they’re called plantar warts.
  • Fingernails/Toenails: Also called periungual and subungual warts, these form around our nail beds.

Regardless of where your warts grow, one thing’s for sure—life would be better and more comfortable without them. Let the expert dermatologists at Skin MD match you with a wart removal treatment today. Contact us to learn more.

Leading Wart Removal Options

Temperature extremes, powerful peeling agents, lasers, and even small surgeries are proven methods for wart removal. These leading treatment options quickly resolve existing warts and can even prevent new warts from growing nearby or elsewhere.

Wart Removal Methods:

  • Cryotherapy: Most often used for adult patients, cryotherapy for warts involves applying liquid nitrogen to the affected site. This freezes and kills the wart cells, allowing the immune system to take over and discard the wart.
  • Powerful Peelers (Acids): Salicylic acid and trichloroacetic acid encourage cellular turnover. These chemical agents may be combined with cryotherapy or other solutions to kill warts over several treatments.
  • Surgical Removal: Surgical removal of warts is quick, comfortable, and effective. This common option involves excising the wart tissue.
  • Laser Treatments: Light energy is heat energy, and heat can be used to cut off a wart’s supply of oxygenated blood. This causes the wart to wither rapidly.
