Treating Verruca’s with PinPointe FootLaser
PinPointe laser machine is FDA cleared for the treatment of verrucae and warts. The laser beam works by destroying the blood supply to the wart without causing damage to the skin. The laser energy heats up the wart or verrucae, sealing its blood supply and causing the lesion to die.
There are no drugs or unpleasant side effects with the laser treatment and most patients only feel warmth during the treatment.
The depth of the verruca will largely determine how many treatments are required. The laser beam penetrates to a maximum depth of 4mm which means that each treatment effectively treats to that depth. In fact, it is not quite as simple as that, some verrucae are more difficult to eradicate than others so there is no hard and fast rule about how many treatments will be needed.
