Warts on hands and feet (Verruca vulgares et plantares)

Viral warts are mainly localized on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet, whitish to skin-coloured, usually the size of a pea.

Virus warts are transmitted through direct physical contact, smear contact or – if localized on the feet – indirectly via warm, damp surfaces such as bathroom mats, in swimming pools or in the sauna.

Due to the continuous strain on the soles of the feet, these grow into the depth of the heel or sole of the foot and can be painful when walking (so-called plantar warts).

Genital warts (Condylomata acuminata)

Genital warts are a type of viral wart and affect the genital and anal area. Unprotected sexual intercourse favors transmission. In women, HPV 16, 18, 31, 33, 35, so-called high-risk viruses, are particularly involved and can promote the development of cervical cancer (cervical carcinoma).

How do you treat viral warts?

There are various ways to treat viral warts.

Commercially available solutions or cold stamps are supposed to destroy the virus warts directly. As the viruses are not only located in the warts, but also microscopically in the skin, these treatment options are often not promising. The warts quickly grow back due to the virus residues present.

The most effective treatment option for viral warts is laser treatment. In the case of large warts, it may be necessary to first remove them superficially – e.g. with a sharp spoon – after a short pre-treatment with an anesthetic ointment.

The ablative function of the laser then gently removes the wart and the heat destroys the remaining virus particles under the skin.

Follow-up treatment with a prescription solution is often necessary to increase the success of treatment after laser treatment and to prevent recurrence of the warts.

Our private practice at Schweizer Platz in Frankfurt specializes in laser treatments and wart removal. Make an appointment now and have viral warts treated effectively.

Age warts (Verruca seborrhoica)

Age warts are black or brown pigmented skin lesions with a fissured surface that usually occur in older patients.
Microscopically, these are so-called horn cysts and horn pearls, which store pigment but do not produce any pigment themselves. It is important to distinguish these age-related warts from melanoma (black skin cancer).

The diagnosis is made on the basis of the clinical picture (below).

Wart laser treatment - remove old warts

The most effective treatment option for age-related warts is to remove the wart with a laser. In the case of large (age) warts, it may be necessary to first remove them superficially – e.g. with a sharp spoon – after a short pre-treatment with an anesthetic ointment.

The wart is then gently removed using the ablative function of the laser.

Treatment of benign skin changes with the Erbium:YAG laser

The Erbium: YAG laser is particularly suitable for the removal of benign skin lesions such as :

The Erbium: YAG laser is the gold standard for highly precise, fully ablative or fractional ablation of the skin.

The laser is used for surgical treatment and is well suited to selectively removing unwanted tissue without damaging surrounding tissue. Erbium laser treatment does not leave any scars on superficial skin changes.

The treated skin areas are treated with a plaster or a small bandage after the procedure. Over the next few days, a crust forms, which falls off after about 10 days, so that the wound healing is completed with new skin tissue.

The use of the erbium laser in fractional mode for non-surgical upper and lower eyelid tightening, facial skin rejuvenation and the treatment of acne scars has a similar effect.
