FLASH LAMP PULSED DYE LASER

flashpulselaser.jpgOne of the most common skin ailments that is seen in a podiatrists office is verrucae, or warts. Clinical studies have proven that laser treatment for resistant warts is very successful as compared to acids, cryogenics, chemical agents and surgical excision. In one study, over two-thirds of patients treated with the laser therapy had their warts successfully removed in as few as two treatments. The laser treatment works by selective absorption of laser energy by the blood supply that feeds the wart. The treated area then separates from the dermis and gradually sloughs off. Depending on the size and the type of wart, some conditions will respond to the very first treatment. However, most will require additional treatment sessions spaced two weeks apart. Treatment consists of placing small hand piece against the surface of the skin and activating the laser. The laser is pulsed rather than a continuous action. As many patients describe it, each pulse feels, for a fraction of a second like a snapping of a rubber band against the skin. Some warts require more than one pulse. Anesthesia by local injection is never utilized. The laser no open wound following treatment, resulting in little or no chance of an infection. Due to no open wounds and minimal pain, patients can resume their active life-styles immediately. There will be discoloration of the skin at the treatment site. Over the 24 hours following laser exposure, the gray discoloration will darken to black.
