Warts are benign (non-cancerous) skin growths, most commonly found on the hands and feet. They are caused by viruses (there are around 60 known wart-causing viruses in existence). Warts are highly contagious as the affected skin cells release the viruses, so hygiene is of the utmost importance if you are affected.
Warts can be contracted by physical contact or indirect contact with a contaminated object, e.g., hand towel or work surface. After you have been infected, it can take weeks or months for the wart to appear on your skin. They tend to affect humans from the age of three and up, with the biggest proportion affecting 16-18 year-olds.
Warts commonly appear on the fingers and around fingernails. They often have a cauliflower-like appearance, but this depends on the type of wart. Typical types of wart are: common, plane, mosaic, plantar (verrucae), filiform and periungual.
Veruccae only tend to appear on the feet. They are flat and thick in appearance, hard around the edge and have a small black dot in the centre. Often, they feel sore when touched or stood upon. Verrucae are highly contagious and are frequently passed on via swimming pools due to people walking barefoot.
Whilst the majority of warts and verrucae will go away by themselves given time, they may leave marks behind and re-infections can occur.
If you are suffering with a wart or verruca, BEAUTONICS offers a safe, effective treatment that will remove the offending object and restore soft and flawless skin. Laser treatment is the most common removal method and targets only the verruca or wart, not the surrounding area.
