Frequently Asked Questions
What types of warts can I treat with Skin Clinic FREEZE ‘n CLEAR™?
You can treat two types of warts: Common warts (Verruca Vulgaris) and Plantar Warts (Verruca Plantaris). Common warts are small, grainy skin growths that occur most often on your fingers or hands. Rough to the touch, common warts also often feature a pattern of tiny black dots, which are small, clotted blood vessels. Common warts are caused by exposure to the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and can take up to 6 months to appear after exposure to the virus. Plantar warts are small growths that usually appear on the heels or other weight-bearing areas of your feet. This pressure may also cause plantar warts to grow inward beneath a hard, thick layer of skin (callus). Plantar warts are also caused by HPV. The virus enters your body through tiny cuts, breaks or other weak spots on the bottom of your feet.

How many warts can you treat with one applicator bud?
