In brief: It could

Very cold temperatures can kill the cells that give our skin color, so liquid nitrogen (ln) can sometimes leave white spots, particlularly on darker skin types.
In dark skin (or light), i often remove genital warts with an electric needle (after numbing). This technique usually heals well, and faster, in my experience.
