Verruca Treatment

At Hamilton Foot Clinic
Verruca Treatment

Verruca Treatment

A verruca is essentially a collection of skin cells infected by the Human Papilloma Virus or verrucae virus. These infected cells remain in the outer layers of the skin (the epidermis), away from detection by the body’s immune system; explaining why verrucae can be so resilient.

The needling procedure is carried out painlessly, under local anaesthetic administered by our new, no needle, Dermo-Jet technology which affectively numbs both the verruca and surrounding skin.

After establishing that the verruca and surrounding tissue is numb, the podiatrist will carefully needle/ puncture the verrucae repeatedly, implanting the virus into the deeper layers of the skin (dermis) and adipose tissue, stimulating an immune response, thus destroying the viral/ verruca tissue.

Dry needling is the latest in verrucae treatment and has been clinically proven to be the most effective treatment for such lesions in the U.K. At the Hamilton Foot Clinic dry needling of verrucae will take around 45 mins with follow up appointments lasting 10-15 mins.

Patients will be followed up 1 week after their dry needling treatment and a second visit will be scheduled 8 weeks after treatment. Each needling treatment will cost £45 per session this includes all after care dressings and first follow up appointment
