Verruca Treatments

I have a number of different treatments available for dealing with verrucas & warts. The treatments available will be discussed at the first consultation & the best treatment procedure will then be chosen for each individual. A short description of each type of treatment is listed below, more in depth details will be discussed in the clinic.


 

Swift microwave embulation, this is the top of the range treatment with the least discomfort, only a few seconds during application, little or no pain afterwards and no need for dressings or padding.

The key to effectively treating verruca is to trigger the body’s own immune response, rather than simply destroying the infected tissue. Independent clinical research has shown that microwave verruca treatment with Swift activates immune signalling pathways in the body, alerting the immune system to the presence of the verruca and clearing the infected tissue. Average success rate 85% after 4 treatments.

Needling technique, this involves the use of local anaesthetics to numb the foot & then the use of a needle to puncture the verruca, this works very well on mosaic verrucas (multiple cluster verrucas). The benefits of this treatment is that it has a high success rate with only 1 treatment & upto 95% success with 3 treatments.

The standard procedure is 2 treatments with an 8 week interval. Previous patients report little discomfort after treatment. The treated site will feel 'bruised' for a few days following treatment.

Needling to finger/hand warts is also very effective, so far I have treated several patients for finger warts and had a 90% clear rate after just 1 treatment.

Strong acids which are very effective but can be a little uncomfortable when applied, treatment course is usually an average of 6 treatments at 2 to 3 week intervals. Benefits -  cheapest form of treatment, good success rate with children, lower response with adults.
