Warts on the foot can be extremely difficult to treat (especially if they have been there for a while), this is believed to be because we have an extra layer of skin on the soles of our feet (Stratum Lucidium). Often overlying Callus (hyperkeratosis) also forms. This overlying callus causes more pain and may make the host more susceptible to the virus. Treatment may take weeks or months to complete.

We offer laser wart treatment at our Waterloo Foot Clinic Westmount location, available following an assessment/consultation with our team at any location. 

Laser Wart treatment includes the non-selective destruction of the epidermis, cauterizing tiny blood cells resulting in the absence of blood flow to the affected tissue. Eventually, the affected tissue without blood will fall off. This can usually be achieved in a single to very few treatments.

It is especially effective against those difficult warts that seem to never go away. Laser wart treatment can be done with or without the use of local anesthetic for patient comfort. Please contact us if you require any further information including costs.
