Huntington area patients who struggle with the appearance of warts on the facial area often are embarrassed by these unsightly skin formations. Warts come in a variety of types, and are caused by the human papilloma virus. Warts can appear anywhere on the skin, but are most common on the hands. Warts are contagious, and the virus can spread if others touch the exposed wart. These growths can take months to form after exposure, making it difficult sometimes to determine where exposure occurred. Warts on the facial area may make patients self-conscious about their appearance. This is when they call a dermatologist to discuss removal of the wart.
There are no specific medical concerns in regards to warts apart from possibly spreading the virus to others. Warts often disappear on their own within a few months. However, warts on the face or other parts of the body that are embarrassing or unsightly can be removed with the help of Dr. Roger Koreen of Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Center.
There are several options for removal of warts on the body, and some are more beneficial than others. These include excision, cryotherapy (freezing), or laser treatment.
