Verrucae are very common and can generally be self-treated with “over the counter solutions” from a pharmacist. However, some verrucae are stubborn particularly in adults and instead need professional attention. In such cases we offer:
Dry Needling where the verruca is broken down using needles. Whilst the patient is under Local Anesthetic we take a small amount of the verruca to a deeper layer of the skin, allowing the body to recognise and attack it.
Cryotherapy uses liquid nitrogen to freeze the verruca and remove it. Local Anesthetic is used if required.
