Warts and verrucas
Remove the problem before it spreads
Warts and verrucas don’t always need clinical treatment. Sometimes painting on a medicated liquid every day works, and sometimes they’ll just disappear by themselves. But either method can take a really long time – if it works at all – and in the meantime, the virus can spread and cause new problems.
If you’d rather not wait and hope, we can quickly and successfully treat both warts and verrucas in our clinic. We can’t guarantee you’ll never get any more, but we can definitely kill the ones you have, and stop spread in its tracks.
Why choose us?
We’ve been treating patients with lasers for twenty years. Because of that valuable experience, other clinics come to us for training and qualifications – we’ve really earned our reputation for excellence in laser treatment.
It’s well-documented that after treatment, warts and verrucas that weren’t lasered disappear alongside ones that were. That’s because the laser breaks down the virus, dispersing fragments into the bloodstream, where the immune system ‘notices’ them and attacks the virus throughout the body. It’s another bonus of laser treatment over topical solutions, or the wait-and-see approach.
What does treatment involve?
It depends on the exact type of lesion and how well-established it is. Some warts and verrucas will disappear completely a few weeks after treatment, while larger or older ones might take several sessions to remove.
The treatments we offer are:
- Diode laser: a high-power laser suitable for smaller warts and verrucas, especially on the face.
- Pulsed-dye laser: ideal for bigger lesions, the pulsed-dye laser uses a lower power over a larger area.
- Nd:YAG laser: this laser penetrates further into the skin than the others, which makes it ideal for some deep verrucas.
To give you the best possible result, we might use a combination of treatments.
