Wart LASER – Genesis Plus
- Health Canada Approved LASER Breakthrough Technology for Warts
- The new Health Canada approved GenesisPlus LASER for the targeted treatment of warts is now available. The Canadian Foot Clinic & Orthotic Centre is the first clinic to offer this breakthrough technology on a full time basis in the Niagara area.
- The GenesisPlus treatment works by using laser light that specifically targets the pigment within the blood supply to the wart to kill the HPV virus. The Genesis Plus LASER is the newest generation “smart” podiatry-specific laser using the 1064 nm Nd:YAG technology which specifically targets the warty structure for optimum patient safety and comfort. Older generations of LASERs such as CO2 devices cause significant tissue damage resulting in a greater chance of complications such as scarring.
- Older topical treatments such as acids, blistering agents and liquid nitrogen have been used with varying degrees of success. These typically must be repeated on numerous occasions with significant patient discomfort and potential down time with greater likelihood of complications.
- Leading scientists and medical professionals working together for 20 years with funding provided by the U.S. National Institutes of Health developed the technology in the patented Cutera Genesis Plus. Only the Genesis Plus LASER offers the latest advanced technology and safety features and is approved by both Health Canada and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treating warts.
- Treatment usually takes only a few minutes and most patients experience minimal to no discomfort. Your comfort and safety are our priority. The warty areas are typically iced prior to the procedure or if a large wart, local anesthetic may be required. Most patients can simply walk in, have the procedure done, and then walk right out. Typically only one or two treatments are required so you can get back to your activities and enjoy life again without reservations.
- The Genesis Plus LASER treatment is clinically proven, effective and safe. We at the Canadian Foot Clinic & Orthotic Centre are helping patients eradicate their embarrassing and often painfully stubborn warts. Call us today for a consultation!
