Warts are generally benign (non-cancerous) skin growths caused by viruses which develop on different parts of the body, coming in various forms. Warts can be transmitted by touch. Children and younger adults are more likely to contract common warts (people with weakened immune systems). Warts are extremely common; almost everyone will have or has had a wart at some point in their life.
Though warts are generally harmless, they can put a real damper on your complexion and have an effect on your confidence. Boston Common Skin Center offers innovative solutions to age-old problems like warts.
Common Wart Properties:
- Small, grainy, fleshy bumps
- Flesh-colored, pink, white, even tan in color
- Rough to the touch, snags on clothing
- Peppered with black pinpoints (clotted blood vessels)

Laser Wart Removal Recovery
After your treatment, the wart will usually exhibit a black, crusty appearance within a day or two. We might encourage you to use an ointment of choice and apply non-stick dressing for enhanced comfort. Blisters may develop, which should be treated accordingly. Treated areas will usually slough within 1-4 weeks. More than one treatment might be necessary for advanced cases (4-6 weeks apart). We’ll give you the post-treatment care you need at Boston Common Skin Center.
Laser Wart Treatment Cost
The cost of wart treatment will vary from patient to patient and from case to case. We have flexible options for payment that can fit most any budget. Our non-surgical skincare and beauty treatments are designed to be shared with the masses and are far less costly than surgery.
