Seborrheic Wart Removal
Safe Removal of Benign Growths
- Qualified doctor completes treatment quickly
- Less risk of scarring
- Downtime is minimal
Seborrheic warts also known as seborhheic keratoses, are removed at Bodyvie using PlexR to cauterise the growths.
Sebhorrheic warts are very common after reaching the age of 40. They begin to develop with a flat and pigmented appearance and overtime can develop a raised and waxy or scaly texture. These growths can appear as tan, brown or black with a round or oval shape.
Despite their name, seborrheic warts are not like viral warts and are not contagious and because they are not harmless, it is not vital to remove these growths. If seborrheic warts are bothering you due to their appearance or how they feel, you can have them cauterised to remove them. This treatment is performed by a doctor to ensure a safe removal and less risk of scarring.
Using plasma energy, the PlexR device ionises gases in the air to create a tiny electrical arc to heat the targeted area of tissue, stimulating rapid contractions, tightening the skin fibres to remove the growth.
Due to the effect of cautery, this treatment does not cause bleeding and only requires a topical anaesthetic resulting in very little downtime and less risk of scarring compared to treatment requiring incision.
You will have a thorough consultation with your doctor before proceeding with treatment. This allows your doctor to carefully assess your unwanted growth(s) to determine it is in fact a seborrheic wart. If it is confirmed you do have a seborrheic wart, your doctor will discuss the procedure of removal and its pre and post care requirements to ensure you achieve optimal results and this will allow you to book your treatment to best suit your schedule.
You will only need one treatment to remove your seborrheic wart, however, it is greatly raised, your doctor may advise another treatment for a safe removal and minimal scarring.
You will see results immediately after treatment. The growth will be removed and you will have a scab on the treated area which will be apparent for 1-2 weeks.
