Warts are harmless growths which are small in size. They are the result of a viral infection caused by the Human Papilloma Virus family. There are nearly 60 different varieties of the Human Papilloma Virus. Each type prefers a particular part of the body.
How and to whom do warts Spread?
Warts normally occur on the skin or on the mucous membrane. Warts can spread from one part of the body to the other and from one person to the other. As such warts are quite a common problem with children, young adults and women. Normally the virus enters the body through the skin or mucous membrane. Symptoms of warts do not occur for at least 1 to 8 months of infection.

There may be minor discomfort after the treatment; however, most patients are able to return to normal daily activities almost immediately. You will experience some temporary discoloration of the skin at the treatment site. Over the 24 hours following laser exposure, the grey discolouration will darken and may persist for 1-2 weeks.
