Ignite Your Fight Against HPV Warts with Radiofrequency cauterization


Today, we’re zapping into a topic that may seem a bit shocking – HPV warts and how to get rid of them using electrocauterization. HPV or Human Papillomavirus is a widespread virus often responsible for those pesky warts that appear on different parts of your body. What makes HPV interesting (and a bit tricky) is that it’s not a one-size-fits-all kind of virus. With over 100 different types, some HPV strains can lead to warts on your hands, others on your feet, and some particularly mischievous ones in the genital area. However, there are some high-risk HPV types, particularly HPV types 16, 18, 31, and 33, which are associated with a high risk of anogenital, cervical, oral, and oropharyngeal squamous cell cancers.

Types of warts:

  1. Common Warts (Verruca Vulgaris): Typically found on hands and fingers.They’re often characterised by a rough, grainy texture with a rounded or cauliflower-like top.
  2. Plantar Warts: These develop on the soles of your feet and can be particularly uncomfortable as they tend to grow inward into your skin.
  3. Flat Warts: Typically found on the face, thighs, or arms, these warts are characterised by a flat top and often appear in large quantities.
  4. Genital Warts: They can be small or large, raised or flat, or even shaped like cauliflower. It’s crucial to get these checked out as some types of HPV associated with genital warts can lead to more serious health issues like cervical cancer in women.

While warts can cause discomfort and aesthetic concern, they’re generally harmless and– most importantly, treatable! Here’s where Radiofrequency cauterisation comes in. Despite its futuristic ring, it is a safe, standard, and effective method for treating many types of warts.

  1. Local Anaesthetic: First, a local anaesthetic is applied to numb the area around the wart. This ensures that you don’t feel any pain during the procedure.
  2. Radiofrequency Cautery Application: Next, the doctor uses a special tool called a cautery pencil. This tool sends a current of electricity to a wire or needle at the end of the pencil.
  3. Destruction of the Wart: The radiofrequency set causes the wire or needle to become superheated. The doctor then uses this heated tool to burn off the wart, effectively destroying the tissue. This might sound a bit harsh, but remember, warts are generally harmless skin growths – they’re not part of your body’s normal, healthy tissue

Why Choose Radiofrequency cauterisation?

For starters, it offers higher precision and effectiveness – your doctor can target the wart without damaging the surrounding healthy skin. This makes it an ideal solution for treating warts in sensitive or hard-to-reach areas.

Moreover, electrocautery is a minimally invasive procedure, which means less pain and faster recovery times compared to other surgical methods. It typically doesn’t require stitches, and the heat used can cauterize blood vessels, minimizing bleeding and promoting healing. The procedure is quick—often requiring just a single visit, allowing you to zap those warts away and still have time for lunch.
