Warts do not represent only a health problem, being also a highly unaesthetic one. They appear as small bumps in the skin, being caused by a virus called the Human Papilloma Virus, in short, HPV. There have been identified more than 100 types of HPV, among the most common being the genital warts and verrucas. Their surface is relatively hard and unaesthetic. Although they are usually painless, they can cause itching or burning sensations. Warts can affect any part of the body and affects both in men and women.

HPV is transmitted by direct as well as indirect contact, and although there are various skin treatments available for it but not all are 100% efficient or appropriate to anyone suffering from it. At Renew Skin & Health Clinic, our doctors have obtained excellent results in the treatment and permanent wart removal, especially with genital warts and verrucas, using the radiosurgery method.

Radiosurgery is one of the latest treatment techniques against soft tissue conditions, starting from the skin surface to deeper tissues. Instead of using the scalpel, radio waves do the cutting. Although it resembles electrosurgery and the laser technique, radiosurgery is much more efficient as it doesn’t cause any tissue damage and has far superior cosmetic results. And Renew Skin & Health Clinic has both the necessary technology and its specialists’ experience in treating these problems.

As mentioned above, genital warts and verrucas are a frequent problem in both men and women. In the latter’s case however, the HPV which causes them can have serious consequences, determining alterations in the cervix which can lead to cervical cancer. That’s why, it’s better to prevent this from happening, and the Renew Skin & Health Clinic in Leamington Spa is the perfect place to do it. The radiosurgery procedure is simple, quick and painless.

First of all, the genital warts or verrucas are covered with an isopropyl alcohol based agent and then injected with 2% lidocaine (anesthetic) – the needles used being only a few millimeters long and very fine, so there will be minimal discomfort – after which they will be removed with a radiosurgery electrode. During this treatment against genital warts and verrucas, the affected areas are cauterized while being removed. This means that there will be no bleeding from the treated areas which can hence be prepared for the application of a triple antibiotic based ointment and then covered with a dressing.
The warts’ cutting effect is made without crushing the cells. The heat is generated by the tissues’ resistance to the passing of a radio frequency wave which disintegrates and volatizes cells in its path. This determines the tissue to split as if cut by a sharp blade. Another equally significant advantage is that the electrode is auto-sterilizes during its use, diminishing thus the risk of post-operative infection. The treatment against genital warts usually lasts approximately 15-30 minutes depending on their number, size and hardness.

Following the radiosurgery intervention, all you need to do is keep the treated areas clean and dry until they are covered by a scab which generally happens in 7-10 days. Anyway, the specialists at Renew Skin & Health Clinic are available to offer you all the necessary information both before and after the procedure to ensure the best possible results.
