If you have tried over the counter wart removal treatments with no success, your doctor or dermatologist may recommend laser wart removal. This type of treatment is most commonly used for warts on the feet.
During laser surgery, an intense beam of light is used to burn and destroy the wart tissue. It is a fairly common and quick procedure but unlike most other wart treatments, it cannot be done at home. Although it is usually reserved for the largest and most difficult cases of warts, it is important to keep in mind that laser wart removal does not guarantee results. The recovery time after laser wart removal can be long and it is common for the treated area to be painful for several days afterwards. Occasionally, several treatments are required. Laser for wart removal can also be quite expensive.
