Facial Warts Removal

All warts are infection of the skin surface by the human papilloma viruses. The commonly encountered warts on face are:

  • Comman warts

  • Plane warts

  • Seborrhoeic warts


Common Warts

They are round lumps with an uneven surface like that of a cauliflower, although sometimes they can have a smooth surface. They are very common on the hands and fingers, and frequently spread to other parts like the face by touching and scratching. Cases have been seen with warts on any parts of the face, including the nostrils.


Plane Warts

They appear as fleshed-coloured or pigmented, very slightly raised, well-defined and flat-topped lumps. They are particularly common on the face and hands. When they are small they are not very noticeable, but with time they will spread and become much larger, and numerous of these seem to appear suddenly and can be cosmetically alarming.


Seborrhoeic Warts

They are actually not warts and should be called seborrhoeic keratosis. They are caused by excessive growth of the top layer of epidermis and are related to skin aging and sun exposure. They are usually found in people over 30 years old, and tends to become more common and more numerous with age. They can be solitary or in clusters and appear light tan to black colour, with sizes range from a few mm to a few cm. It is unsightly when there are numerous of them appearing on the face. Removal is sometimes recommended not just for cosmetic reason, especially if they get irritated and bleed easily.

All of the above are easily removed by scrapping off with the based cauterized afterwards, or the whole thing can be burnt off by a CO2 laser. These are more effective than freezing treatments using liquid nitrogen. The wounds will heal up after about 1 week and there should be no scars.
