WARTS

  • Treat Plantar & Palmer Warts in a matter of seconds

    No more weeks of bandages and medication


    Plantar and palmar warts can now be treated virtually painlessly with the help of CryoPen®. CryoPen® is a medical procedure which involves the application of nitrous oxide gas under high pressure to the skin where the unwanted lesions are frozen and destroyed.

    The tip of the Cryopen® may reach as low as -89°C, this has the effect of crystallising the contents of the body cells leading to destruction of the skin lesion. The duration of the treatment is dependent on the size and nature of the lesion, but generally each lesion just takes a matter of seconds. Some lesions can be treated in as few as 1-2 sessions

    What Causes Plantar & Palmar Warts

    Plantar warts and palmar warts are noncancerous skin growths, caused by a viral infection in the top layer of the skin. The culprit is a strain of virus called human papillomavirus or HPV.

    The HPV strains that cause plantar warts aren’t highly contagious. So the virus isn’t easily transmitted by direct contact from one person to another. But it thrives in warm, moist environments. Consequently, adults and kids may contract the virus by walking barefoot around swimming pools or locker rooms. If the virus spreads from the first site of infection, more warts may appear.
