- This causes the cells to die and naturally fall off.
- In the case of seborrhoeic keratosis, we sometimes use our Laser treatment.
- The intense beam of light from the laser burns and destroys the growth.
- The spot size for a laser is large which means the area is treated within minutes.
- A cooling device is used to cool the skin before, during and after Seborrhoeic Keratosis Removal.

- The treatment is finished with Witch hazel on the Warts to prevent post-treatment infection.
- The area is cooled and aloe vera gel applied to prevent any post burning sensation.
- A bandage or plaster is applied on the area, particularly after the Advanced Electrolysis procedure as there’s likely to be some minor bleeding.

What are Warts?
- Warts are small and usually painless growths on the skin.
- They come in many forms and sizes.
- They are typically raised and circular in shape with a rough surface.
- They are a different shade to the surrounding area, and can sometimes be partially or totally grey or black.
- They are usually non-cancerous.
Are Warts Infectious?
- Most Warts are infectious apart from Seborrhoeic Warts. People catch warts from other people. The most common way is direct skin to skin contact, such as shaking hands with someone who has warts.
- You can also get them from indirect skin contact such as sharing towels with someone who has warts. The virus is more likely to cause warts when they come into contact with skin that is damaged, cut or wet. After you become infected it can take weeks to months for a wart to appear.
Types of Warts
The following are viral warts that are infectious, they are caused by the virus HPV.
- Common warts: These most often occur on the hands, and are rough, dome-shaped, and gray-brown. They are an infection in the top layer of the skin caused by the virus HPV.
- Plantar warts: These grow on the soles of the feet and are hard and thick with dark specks. They can be painful when you walk. Unlike other warts they grow into your skin, not out of it.
- Flat warts: These can grow on the face, arms, and thighs. They’re small, have flat tops, and may be light yellow, brown, or pink.
- Filiform warts: These can grow on the face, usually around the mouth, nose, or chin. They are the same colour as the skin, but they have thread-like growths sticking out of them.
- Periungual warts: These occur under and around the fingernails and toenails. Many times, warts will go away on their own, but sometimes they can be stubborn and stick around for much longer than you’d like.
- Genital Warts: small fleshy growths that develop around the genital area. They can spread during sex.
Seborrhoeic Warts/Seborrhoeic Keratoses
- Also called senile warts these lesions often appear flat and the colour varies from shiny/glossy skin coloured, white, brown, black and wine coloured. The surface might appear rough and thread-like and raised patches can sometimes be felt like lumps in the skin surface layer.
- These warts are not contagious and are caused by a combination of hereditary reasons, sun damage and ageing. This is the only wart that is not caused by an infection of the human papillomavirus (HPV).
- Seborrhoeic warts are fibrous growths, a little mass of keratinized tissue, which sometimes have a vascular supply, more often they do not. This skin imperfection is connected with a slowing down of the basal rate of mitotic activity in the skin. As the skins ability to regenerate slows down with age, it seems that the incidence of these imperfections increases. They usually occur from the age of 40 onwards.
Flat Seborrhoeic Warts
- Flat Seborrhoeic Warts have a flat top and look like they have been scraped.
- They give the impression that they have been stuck onto the skin.
- Their size varies from one centimetre to several centimetres across.
What causes Warts?
- Warts are an acquired condition.
- Warts are caused by a virus called the Human Papilloma Virus or HPV for short.
- Warts can be received through skin-to- skin contact.
- A person with damaged or wet skin is more likely to catch the virus; this is also true for those that are in regular contact with rough surfaces.
- If you have a weak immune system then you have a greater chance of acquiring Warts and for the Warts to spread.
- Warts will begin to form between a few weeks and a couple of years after you have contracted HVP.
You should see your doctor if:
- You have warts on your face or another sensitive part of your body (e.g., genitals, mouth, nostrils)
- You notice bleeding or signs of infection, such as pus or scabbing, around a wart.
- The Wart is painful.
- The colour of the wart changes.
- You have warts and diabetes or an immune deficiency, such as HIV/AIDS
