  Fungal Nail Treatment Wart treatment  

Warts are benign epithelial neoplasms of the skin and mucosa resulting from human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. They are a common dermatologic complaint, with an estimated incidence of 10% in children and young adults.

Even if disease progression is naturally self-limited, the course of the disease is unpredictable, and treatment may be necessary. Several treatment methods are available for treatment of warts; however, most methods have specific disadvantages and side effects. Invasive methods have the drawbacks of pain and long recovery periods. Topical management requires the application of drugs for long durations and treatment success is, therefore, highly dependent on patient compliance.

Laser treatment is based on the principle of photodermal or photomechanical destruction of the target tissue. Long-pulsed Nd:YAG lasers are a safe and effective treatment for warts, with response rates higher than those obtained with conventional therapies. Laser is more expensive per session than other treatments, however, as over 90% of verrucaes disappear within only 2 to 3 sessions overall it works out as more cost effective.
