Removal of papillomas and warts in Kyiv
Papillomas, warts are benign formations on the skin. Human cells can become infected with papillomavirus, which contributes to the spread of these unattractive growths on the surface of the body. Violations of the integrity of the skin, weakening of the protective barrier or general immunity – all this is favorable conditions for the active development of infection with papillomavirus and, as a result, the spread of papillomas and warts.
What are the differences between papilloma and warts?
Despite many common features, warts and papillomas have many differences. First of all, these are structure, density, dimensions. Active growth of the upper layers of the dermis, provoked by a viral infection, leads to the appearance of warts. And papillomas appear on moist and warm parts of the body, where skin folds form. Most often this is the face (especially around the eyes), neck, chest, underarms, groin area.
Most often, papillomas are found in young people (25-30 years old). Small formations may not cause discomfort, but if the papilloma begins to grow, the increase in size is often accompanied by itching or burning. Large papillomas are easily damaged, even unintentionally, and this can cause bleeding.
Warts often disappear on their own without effort. This will not work with papillomas – they will leave only if they are “helped” in this.
Causes of the appearance of warts and papillomas
These formations can appear on the body of absolutely every person.
The likelihood of their occurrence is increased by:
- damage to the integrity of the skin;
- hormonal disorders;
- pregnancy (as one of the causes of hormonal disruption);
If a new formation is found, a dermatologist will help to establish that it is a wart or papilloma. In most cases, a visual examination is sufficient, and only occasionally it is necessary to carry out an additional research procedure – taking a histology.
Why papillomas need to be removed
Removal of papillomas and warts is recommended not only for aesthetic reasons, but also for medical reasons. Although they are benign formations, the cells in them can be infected with the papilloma virus, which will spread throughout the body, provoking the appearance of new formations.
Also, papilloma can be a consequence of the development of a precancerous condition in the body or an already progressive oncological skin disease. That is why you should not remove papillomas yourself – you need a visit to a specialist. If such an education is not treated at all (especially when it is located in traumatic areas – the neck, décolleté, waist), the papilloma can develop into a malignant one, and also cause other harm to the body: block the respiratory tract, interfere with the normal functioning of organs, in particular, the genitourinary systems.
How to treat it correctly
The easiest, fastest and most effective way to cure a papilloma is to remove it. The actual deletion takes only a few seconds. But beforehand it is imperative that a specialist (in this case, a dermatologist) conduct an examination, determine the type of formation and the nature of the lesion and dermatoscopy. Also, the doctor will select the best removal method and give recommendations for skin care after the procedure.
Sometimes it is necessary to conduct a histological examination to clarify the diagnosis.
How to remove papillomas and warts
Esteva Clinic uses the most effective methods of removing these formations today: radio wave and CO2 laser.
Removal of papillomas and warts by radio wave method
This is a quick and safe way of affecting the skin, in which, with the help of radio waves, the cells of warts and papillomas are destroyed, it becomes smaller and, as a result, is completely eliminated. This method can be used not only on the skin, but also on a more delicate area – on mucous membranes.
40-45 minutes before the procedure, a drug is applied to the affected area, which acts as a local anesthetic – this helps to reduce pain. When the anesthesia works, radio waves are applied – they pass along the surface of the wart, removing the formation. When removing on the hands or feet, curettage (scraping of tissues) is also carried out – this is a necessary measure that allows you to make sure that the wart is removed from the root, and not just its superficial part. If the root remains, the wart will soon grow back.
The site of removal heals within a week after the procedure.
Also, the radio wave method of removing papillomas has the following advantages:
- the skin surrounding the wart is practically not damaged;
- local anesthesia reduces the pain of the procedure to zero level.
Which zones are recommended to be treated with the radio wave method
- face area – here the aesthetic effect is especially important;
- decollete area, chest and armpits;
- hands, including palms
Removal of papillomas and warts with laser
This procedure is one of the most popular and modern, since it also removes the neoplasm effectively and without affecting healthy tissues. The principle of operation is similar to the radio wave, with the only difference that a laser beam is used here.
Nevertheless, it is the CO2 laser that is the optimal method for removing papillomas in difficult areas, namely:
- near the nail plates (both on the hands and feet);
- on the feet, including the plantar zone
The radio wave method and laser are the gold standard for removing papillomas and warts.
