In brief: Most of the time
Most of the time the treatment is permanent.
But in extensive cases or in people with poor local immunity it may be difficult to totally eradicate the warts.Early treatment is very important.

In brief: Genital warts
There is no single effective cure for removal of genital warts.
A number of treatment options exist; however, no treatment is 100% effective in eliminating warts and preventing them from coming back in all patients. It also is not possible to eliminate infection with human papillomavirus once it has occurred. Genital warts may go away on their own in about 10%-20% of people over 3-5 months.
