Mesotherapy can be used to address everything from dehydration, fine lines, cellulite and hair loss.

Factors that increase the risk include use of public showers, working with meat, eczema , and a low immune system. The virus is believed to enter the body through skin that has been damaged slightly. A number of types exist, including common warts, planter warts , filiform warts, and genital warts. Genital warts are often sexually transmitted.

Procedure

Keratolysis, of dead surface skin cells usually using salicylic acid, blistering agents, immune system modifiers ("immunomodulators"), or formaldehyde, often with mechanical paring of the wart with a pumice stone, blade etc.

Electrodesiccation

Cryosurgery or cryotherapy, which involves freezing the wart (generally with liquid nitrogen), creating a blister between the wart and epidermal layer after which the wart and the surrounding dead skin fall off. An average of 3 to 4 treatments are required for warts on thin skin. Warts on calloused skin like plantar warts might take dozens or more treatments.
