Verrucae and Warts are commonly seen in our practice, they are a viral skin infection. Unlike treatments like caustics, which may require numerous applications, needling only requires one, making it ideal for busy people. It also requires no bulky dressing to be left on, you can go swimming the next day if you like!
It is carried out painlessly under local anesthetic and most people report only minor soreness for a few days.
Needling for verrucae is a relatively simple treatment. At Happy Feet we offer a range of treatments depending on age, health and lifestyle of our patients. Since 2015 we've had success with a treatment technique called "needling" with 97% of our treatments resolving with one treatment.
Needling is an innovative and effective treatment for stubborn verrucae. Most treatments, like freezing, burning, or chemical caustics work by creating a thermal or chemical burn in and around the verruca. This increases the chance of the verruca resolving by creating lots of inflammation and swelling around it and the immune system fighting the virus.
Needling is different. By disrupting each individual papillae in the verruca and creating a portal from the viral tissue to the adipose tissue, it allows the immune system to attack the lesion directly. It has been effective where past treatments have failed on long standing verrucae of over 10 years.
We’re so confident in the effectiveness of this treatment that if it does not work first time, we’ll do the second application absolutely free. That’s how good this treatment is!
If you have a verruca that you had given up on ever getting rid of, don’t waste any more time or money!
