What causes warts?

A wart results from infection with certain types of viruses, most notably the human papillomavirus (HPV). These viruses get into the skin, usually through small injuries or tears in the skin. When the virus enters skin cells, it causes those cells to divide uncontrollably, creating a growth called a wart.

HPV infection can be transmitted through direct contact with infected skin or objects contaminated with the virus. Some people are more susceptible to HPV infection than others because of their immune system, which could explain why some people are more prone to warts than others.

There are different types of HPV, and different types of warts can develop depending on which type of virus is causing the infection. Warts can appear on different parts of the body and often have a characteristic shape.

Conventional treatments to remove warts

There are several conventional treatments to remove warts that can be used depending on the type and size of the wart and the individual situation of the patient. Here are some of the most common methods:

cryotherapy

Cryotherapy freezes the wart to kill the affected tissue. This is done by applying liquid nitrogen to the wart, which freezes and destroys the affected cells. This usually involves using a cryoprobe or applicator to apply the liquid nitrogen to the wart.

After treatment, the skin around the wart will turn red and a blister may form. The skin around the wart may also be temporarily numb. Within a few days to weeks, the wart will die and fall off. However, it may be necessary to repeat the treatment several times to completely kill all wart cells.

acid treatment

Chemical cautery (also known as chemical cautery) involves treating the wart with an acid or caustic substance to destroy it. The goal is to destroy the wart and surrounding tissue, eventually repelling it.

The most common acids are trichloroacetic acid (TCA), salicylic acid and formic acid. They can be used as a solution or as a patch. It is important that the acid is only applied to the wart so as not to damage the surrounding healthy tissue - skin irritation and chemical burns are not uncommon here. The treatment usually has to be repeated several times until the wart has completely healed.

Surgical removal of warts

Surgical removal of warts is usually only recommended in severe cases where other treatment methods have not been successful. The surgery is usually performed in a doctor's office or clinic and requires local anesthesia. There are several methods of surgically removing warts, such as excision (cutting out) or curettage (scraping off) the wart. The choice of method depends on the size, location and type of wart.

Surgical removal of warts is usually very effective - however, there are risks such as bleeding, infection or scarring. It is therefore important to have the operation performed by an experienced doctor and to ensure careful wound care after the operation.

Phlebolysis for safe and quick removal of warts

Phlebolys is a medical procedure that causes water molecules to vibrate, thereby generating heat - These vibrations are created by a combination of high frequency radio waves and electrical current. In particular, tissue that contains a lot of water, such as blood vessels, reacts to this stimulus. However, the actual tool, the needle, remains cold and therefore cannot cause burns.

The affected area dies off due to the destruction of the cells, especially the blood vessels. The immune system recognizes the damaged tissue, which is not rebuilt due to the lack of blood supply. Instead, the body repairs the surrounding tissue, preparing for the rejection process. This can show up as scaling or shedding of the skin disorder.

Through the targeted application of electrolysis and high frequency to the affected areas, the pathogens are largely inactivated so that the immune system can trigger healing and the wart can be removed.

The wart can be removed without anesthesia, but some patients find it uncomfortable. Slight redness may occur after the wart treatment. So far, no lasting side effects or deterioration of the skin's appearance have been observed in the user study with over 1.000.000 documented cases.

Before treating warts, however, a doctor should always clarify whether surgical treatment is necessary, especially if cancer is suspected.

Benefits of phlebolysis:

  • no anesthesia
  • Scar formation not known
  • gentle and painless method
  • immediately visible reaction
  • applicable to any skin
  • Burns impossible because the tool is cold
  • no bleeding
  • no risk of infection
  • no threads, no pressure bandage
  • Patient is in no way restricted after treatment
