What are Warts?

Warts are benign growths that can emerge on virtually any part of the body. They can vary in color and texture, appearing flesh-colored and rough or dark and smooth. Typically transmitted through skin-to-skin contact, they tend to manifest on areas where the skin is compromised, such as around the fingers, nails, and backs of the hands.

Although warts are harmless, individuals often opt for removal due to discomfort or cosmetic concerns and to prevent spread to others. At Metro Dermatology, we offer patients the necessary treatments and guidance to eliminate unwanted warts and deter their recurrence.

What Causes Warts?

Warts are caused by a viral infection, specifically by the human papillomavirus (HPV). When this virus enters the skin through small cuts, breaks, or weakened areas, it triggers the rapid growth of cells in the outermost layer of the skin. This leads to the formation of warts, which can vary in appearance depending on the strain of HPV involved and the location on the body. While warts are not usually harmful, they can be bothersome or unsightly, prompting many individuals to seek treatment for their removal.

How can Metro Dermatology Help?

At Metro Dermatology, we recognize that while warts are not dangerous, their presence can be unwelcome. These growths can appear in areas where clothing causes friction, resulting in significant discomfort, or in conspicuous locations, impacting one's appearance.

Our clinic offers comprehensive treatment options designed to remove these unwanted warts. It's essential to understand that warts stem from a virus that may remain dormant within the body, necessitating possibly multiple treatments for complete removal.

We encourage you to contact Metro Dermatology to arrange a consultation with our skilled team of specialists. Addressing your skincare concerns is our top priority, and we are committed to helping you achieve a clearer, healthier complexion.
