Pulsed dye laser for wart treatment

The pulsed dye laser can penetrate deep into tissue and eradicate stubborn warts.  It is fair to say that a few treatments are necessary, but some patients will respond in a single session.

Wart Treatment with Pulsed Dye Laser Varies

Good question, but unfortunately there is not one answer.  Warts can be very difficult to treat, no matter the method.  I sometimes have great success with using a pulsed dye laser (PDL) when other treatments have failed, and sometimes no success at all.  The PDL is not my first choice or even 2nd choice when treating warts but can be a useful option.  Best of luck.
