Hey everyone! Today, I wanted to talk to you about a treatment option for verrucas and warts: laser treatment.
Verrucas and warts are common skin conditions that are caused by a virus. They can be unsightly and uncomfortable, and in some cases, they can be difficult to treat with traditional methods such as topical medications or freezing.
Laser treatment is a relatively new option for verrucas and warts. It involves using a specialized laser to target the virus that's causing the growth. The laser emits a high-intensity light that penetrates the skin and destroys the virus without damaging the surrounding tissue.
Laser treatment for verrucas and warts is a safe and effective option for many people. It's typically done in a our clinic and takes about 30 minutes to complete. Most people require several treatments to achieve optimal results.
One of the benefits of laser treatment is that it's non-invasive and doesn't require any downtime. You can return to your normal activities immediately after the procedure.
If you're experiencing symptoms of a verruca or wart, talk to us about whether laser treatment might be a good option for you. They can help you determine the best course of treatment based on your individual needs and circumstances. With the right care and management, you can get back to having healthy, beautiful skin!

Verruca or Corn? We can tell you immediately which one it is. If you want to send me a picture I will be able to tell. Send it to this number preferably by WhatsApp.
Current treatments include cryotherapy, acid treatments, electrocautery, dry needling and surgical excision for verrucas and warts. You may be offered a combination of the above treatments. Getting rid of warts yourself can cause infection so seek professional advise.
For stubborn verrucas we can remove it surgically under local anaesthetic.
Removal of verrucas using cryotherapy is no longer available due to poor results and you will find not many clinicians including GP's offer this service.
The best verruca treatment for children is laser as it is not too distressing unlike other options and is relatively pain free. NHS verruca removal is no longer available, your GP will advise you to see a Podiatrist UK.
Laser therapy is very expensive costing between £200 to £500 per treatment but our Podiatrist in Northampton can offer you Laser Therapy for verrucas and Warts at a fraction of this cost, ring for prices.

My day is very varied from nail cutting, callus and corns to surgery.
