Wart / and mole removal

Warts are protrusions that appear on the skin's surface. Despite their historical reputation for being 'unattractive', warts are just a result of extra skin layers forming small, uneven patches on the skin.
The human papillomavirus (HPV) instigates these skin alterations, but despite this, warts typically pose no significant health risk and may not require medical intervention. Nonetheless, warts can negatively affect a person's self-confidence and can pop up in inconvenient locations, such as the hands, fingers, or arms. Their presence can interfere with daily comfort, getting snagged on clothes and jewelry and causing discomfort. Even though they typically form on the hands, feet, and face, warts can develop anywhere and come in numerous varieties. For instance, warts that surface on the feet are commonly known as Verrucas.

These are caused by the HPV virus as well and are often contracted in damp and humid environments like shower areas and public pools. Both warts and verrucas can spread from person to person and from one body part to another. When you touch a wart, you can transfer the virus, which can lead to warts on other parts of your body. It should be noted that warts are fairly common, affecting nearly one in ten people at some stage in their lives, usually during childhood or adolescence. Apart from damp, warm common zones, skin-to-skin contact can also lead to warts and verrucas.

 Warts can have varied appearances. Some may look like small lumps, subtly raised from the skin, others might expand to a couple of centimeters wide. At times, warts can be somewhat troubling due to their size, as they tend to snag on garments or accessories such as watches and jewelry. There is a wide array of wart types; however, their removal is typically straightforward. There are a variety of effective methods for wart eradication.

Wart removal techniques

Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy is a therapeutic procedure that leverages very low or freezing temperatures. This treatment method can be used to eliminate warts and other skin conditions, including skin tags, through a process of freezing them off from the skin's surface. Though there are diverse ways to implement cryotherapy, the most prevalent method utilises liquid nitrogen. Liquid nitrogen represents nitrogen in its liquid state at a significantly reduced temperature, typically around −196 °C or −320 °F. At warmer temperatures, nitrogen exists as a gas and constitutes over three-fourths of the surrounding air. When the temperature becomes extremely low, nitrogen converts into a liquid state. Due to its extreme cold, liquid nitrogen requires storage and transportation in specially fabricated containers designed for chemical use.

How cryotherapy is used on the skin

Cryotherapy is used in the treatment of many skin conditions, with the extremely low temperatures being used in a targeted way to ‘burn’ off warts, skin tags and other legions. Primarily used to treat benign skin conditions, cryotherapy is used in the removal of viral warts, sun-damaged skin patches – known as actinic keratoses, and other non-serious skin lesions. There are other skin conditions, associated with skin cancers, that are treated with cryotherapy. These include Bowen’s disease, superficial cell carcinoma and some forms of non-melanoma skin cancers.

What happens during Cryotherapy treatment?

A Cryotherapy session is conducted during a scheduled appointment, eliminating the need for hospital admission. Patients can receive this treatment within the span of a typical consultation, and no special preparation is needed beforehand. The procedure can be performed by either a clinician or a nurse without complications. In a cryotherapy session, the lesion or affected skin area is treated with liquid nitrogen using precision tools. These tools might range from a metal gun or probe to a pen-like instrument for smaller spots. Occasionally, a cotton swab may be used to apply the liquid nitrogen, depending on the specific circumstances.
The actual application of the treatment is quick, taking only a few seconds, and is generally painless, thus not requiring a local anaesthetic. The duration of treatment can vary based on the size and depth of the lesion – warts in this context, but the procedure itself is brief. After undergoing cryotherapy, the treated area of the skin turns white and feels frozen temporarily. It takes a short while for the skin to warm back up to its normal temperature. Once the skin's temperature normalizes, the healthcare provider will evaluate the effectiveness of the treatment to determine if additional applications are necessary or if a single treatment is sufficient.

If needed, another round of freezing may occur right after the first one. Post-treatment, a scab will form over the treated area, healing naturally like any regular scab, usually within two weeks. Healing might take slightly longer for treatments on the legs, but the recovery is relatively quick. After the scab falls off, the underlying skin in most cases returns to its normal state.
However, treatments on the legs could potentially leave some scarring or discoloration. The response of each wart to treatment can vary. While many warts are successfully treated in just one session, some may require additional treatments. Your clinician will provide guidance on this after evaluating the initial treatment outcome.

Post-treatment care

Your clinician will prescribe you a course of cryotherapy after care. This will most likely be a non-medical process and will require you to take care of the treated area by keeping it dry until a scab forms. You may be advised to apply a moisturiser, in the form of petroleum jelly. If a scab becomes wet, it should be patted dry gently with a soft tissue. Please do not rub or be abrasive with the area of treatment.

To ensure that you prevent against scarring as much as possible, it is critical that you do not try to pick the scab or rub at it. Not only will this be more likely to result in scarring, but it would greatly increase your chances of infection.

It is not usual to require a plaster or a dressing, however some treatment areas may benefit from the added protection if they are in an area that might rub on another part of the body or clothing.

Are there any side effects?

Immediately post-treatment:

  • There may be some pain or discomfort – cryotherapyis a non-invasive treatment; however, some lesions may require deep freezing to make sure that they have been treated properly. It may increase any discomfort felt during the treatment and for some time thereafter, although this can depend on the patient. Paracetamol may be taken for the first 24 hours following the treatment, while you may alsotake may relieve that discomfort. You may wish totake an analgesic an hour before your treatment to reduce discomfort.
  • Swelling and redness – a normal, natural response to cryotherapy. Any swelling and redness will settle and return to normal within a few days and your clinician may provide a steroid ointment to boost recovery. Sometimes, the treated area can ooze and cryotherapy undertaken in the eye region may induce puffiness in the lower lids. This will return to normal within a few days.
  • Blistering – Blisters is a normal side effect of cryotherapy. Blisters can often be a part of the healing process and form before the scabs eventually replace them. Blistering may depend on the individual, rather than the treatment or the lesion that is being treated. Blisters are a normal part of the healing process and should be tolerated. A blister may fill with blood; however, this is harmless. If a blister becomes extremely painful, it may help to alleviate the pressure by applying a sterile needle. Please seek medical advice before attempting this.
  • Infection – While unlikely, infection may occur, as with any treatment or procedure. It will likely render the treatment area more painful and you may experience pus. Please consult your clinician for advice and possible antibiotic medication.

Following initial healing:

  • Scarring – Depending on the lesion and amount of treatment required, scarring may form. However, this is not a common side effect of the treatment.
  • Pigmentation changes – Skin in and around the treatment area can change in colour, becoming wither lighter or darker. This can be more prevalent in people of colour. While it may lessen over time, it may remain.
  • Numbness – When freezing, it may be possible for the treatment to touch a superficial nerve. It may lead to numbness in the area of skin around the nerve, but normal feeling will return in a few months.
  • You may only require one treatment; however, it may not be totally effective. You may need to undertake further different treatment. The wart may also, on occasion, return.

Different types of warts

Filiform

These are unusual-looking warts that appear on the neck and face, especially around the eyelids, neck and lips. They resemble a tree-like branch or twig. Narrow and skin-coloured, they can grow quickly and relentlessly. They can be hugely embarrassing to the person involved as they are often in such a noticeable part of the body. Filiform warts can also spread quickly and will get worse without treatment. However, filiform warts also respond well to treatment and can be removed in one procedure.

Seborrheic

Seborrheic warts are not caused by the HPV virus. Rather, they are a low-level, thick build-up of epidermal cells that have a rough surface. They can range in colour, from skin colour to black and can vary widely in size and surface area. Commonly associated with the aging process, seborrheic warts as also known as senile warts. Most commonly found on the face, they can also form on the torso and can form on clumps or join colour. Left untreated, they become more integrated into the skin, as they penetrate the skin more deeply through fibrous tendrils. Treatment can be very effective and the skin recovers well. As with blood spots and age spots, we recommend swift treatment of Seborrheic warts.

Plane

Plane wart removal is very straightforward and sees the removal of small, slightly raised warts. Most usually found on the face and the back of the hands, plane warts are skin or brown coloured warts and are most common in children and adolescents.

Common

Cauliflower-like in appearance, common warts are raised, rough growths which are most often found on the backs of hands, fingers, toes and on knees. They may have a set of black dots, called seeds. Seeds are viral clotted blood vessels which can be responsible for the spreading of warts by touch. Children, young adults and those with a weakened immune system are more prone to common warts. Often disappearing of their own accord, People prefer to have them removed for cosmetic reasons or to improve their self-esteem. Common wart removal may require more than one treatment.

Periungual

Periungual warts grown under or around the nail. While forming, they are tiny raised bumps that cannot be seen, but patients can soon notice rough-looking bumps with irregular edges. Periungual warts can appear in groups and can generate varying degrees of pressure on the nail. Untreated, they can become painful or grow large enough to make the nail come away from the nail bed. Although uncommon, periungual warts should be treated to prevent permanent nail damage or scarring. More than one treatment might be required to remove a perifungal wart. Although this is uncommon, it can happen, and is likely to cause permanent nail damage and scarring. More than one treatment session may be required.

If you like to take care of your skin, you might find that there are some things that you can’t – and shouldn’t – try to scrub or exfoliate away.

Although Moles are a normal part of our skin, they can have a dramatic impact on self esteem and can make you feel self-conscious. You may have a mole that is simply in the wrong place for you and it is really getting you down. You can try to cover it up with make-up, but that just makes you feel even more conspicuous and obvious. For such a small thing, it can cause a lot of angst.

You might also have a mole that is catching on your clothes on a daily basis. It can become uncomfortable and you may long to simply pull on a jumper without that sudden pinch of pain as the material hits your mole. The same applies to shaving. Moles do need some extra tender loving care and your patience might be wearing thin.

Have you ever thought of getting rid of your troublesome mole altogether?

Mole removal takes just one treatment and is a pain-free procedure that gives instant results. Mole removal treatment doesn’t require an incision or stitching and so scarring is negligible. With one quick and simple procedure to full healing within 6 weeks, mole removal could have you looking and feeling better in weeks.

Your Mole Removal Consultation

At Newcastle Wart Removal, we will spend time talking with you before the procedure and a trained, qualified nurse will examine the mole. Moles can appear anywhere on the skin but are most frequently found on the arms, face and neck.

Your nurse will check your mole and look for even, brown pigmentation and a regular outline. Facial moles tend to be lighter in colour and less heavily pigmented. They may have hairs and are most often benign.

If your nurse feels for any reason that your mole requires further examination, we will use our state-of-the-art skin scanner to examine your mole in greater detail. Following your mole examination, we will then discuss the most appropriate method of removal, making sure that you are comfortable with the treatment before proceeding.

If your nurse identifies a clinical need for further investigation into your mole, it can be excised and sent for clinical analysis.

Please feel free to speak to our Newcastle Wart Removal Team, where we are happy to help with any questions or queries you have.

Mole Removal methods

  • Radio Frequency Mole Removal – The most common form of mole removal and used to remove moles that protrude above the skin’s surface. A radiosurgery electrode loop gently removes the mole, layer by layer, from the surface of the skin.
  • Laser Mole Removal: An advanced laser system that removes birthmarks or moles [compound naevi] from the face, with superb cosmetic results and negligible scarring.
  • Cryotherapy Mole Removal: A more traditional treatment that uses liquid nitrogen remove moles by freezing. Liquid nitrogen kills cell tissue and can be a laborious and uncomfortable way to remove moles. You may require multiple treatments and is not our recommended option.

Following Treatment

Mole removal treatment requires little healing. While the skin’s surface may be slightly elevated or lower than the skin’s surface, this does even out in time. You may find that moles regain some of their pre-treatment pigmentation, but this is a rare occurrence. We do ask that patients use SP30 sunblock after treatment.

Harmless moles

We take mole health very seriously. Happily, most moles are harmless and they are removed purely for cosmetic reasons and to increase self-esteem. Other moles may get in the way of everyday life or sporting and leisure activities.

It is always best practice to consult your doctor if you have any concern whatsoever about a mole.

Moles can sometimes be confused with warts. Warts tend to develop on the hands or feet and are small, rough bumps. Warts are non-cancerous, but they can be thick and unsightly. Caused by HPV [human papilloma virus], warts tend to strike in childhood and the teenage years, often lessening in adults. The HPV virus causes an abundance of a protein, known as keratin, to develop on the epidermis, or top layer of skin. Warts can vary in thickness and may appear as single warts or in small groups. Verrucas are warts that appear on the soles of the feet. Most people will experience a wart or verruca at some stage and, although harmless, they can be an irritation
