Warts are a harmless skin growth, but they can be unsightly and even uncomfortable depending on the location. Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates offers wart removal to patients living in Fairfax, Washington DC, Arlington, Annandale, VA, and surrounding cities.
What is Wart Removal?
Warts are a small skin growth caused by human papillomavirus. They are most commonly found on the feet, hands and genitals, but can grow anywhere. They are harmless and usually painless, but many patients choose to have them removed to achieve smooth, clear skin. They may also spread to other areas of the body or to other people if left untreated. Washing your hands regularly and practicing other good hygiene habits can help prevent warts — but when at-home solutions fail, it may be time to consider getting your wart removed by a dermatologist. Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates offers a number of wart removal solutions to help patients restore clear, smooth skin.
How Much Does Wart Removal Cost?
The cost of your wart removal at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates can vary, and may be covered by health insurance. If this is the case, we will determine your coverage during your consultation in order to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. In an effort to keep our treatments accessible, we are proud to accept CareCredit® financing in addition to traditional payment methods.
How Are Warts Removed?
Most warts can be removed using cryosurgery, which involves freezing the wart off. We also offer medicated pads that will gradually break down warts throughout use. For persistent warts, we can prescribe compounded creams that are used topically.
