Verruca Clinic

Effective Treatments for Clearing Stubborn Verrucas

Welcome to the Verruca Clinic at Yarm Podiatry, your dedicated destination for professional care and effective treatments for verrucas. Verrucas, or plantar warts, can be persistent and uncomfortable, affecting your daily activities. Our skilled team of podiatrists specialises in providing comprehensive solutions to help you achieve clear and healthy feet.

Whether you require a consultation, freezing (cryotherapy), laser treatment, or surgical intervention, our clinic offers personalised treatments tailored to your specific needs.

Treatment 1: Consultation Only

Our consultation services are available if you're seeking professional advice and guidance regarding your verrucas. During the consultation, our experienced podiatrist will assess your condition, conduct a thorough evaluation, and discuss suitable treatment options and preventive measures tailored to your needs. We will provide you with information on the various treatment options available and guide you toward the most appropriate course of action.

Treatment 2: Freezing (Cryotherapy)

Cryotherapy is a widely used and effective treatment for verrucas. Using liquid nitrogen, our podiatrists will apply controlled freezing to the affected area, causing the verruca tissue to freeze and subsequently slough off. This non-invasive procedure is generally well-tolerated and can be repeated if necessary. Cryotherapy aims to stimulate the body's immune response to eliminate the verruca, helping you achieve clear and healthy skin.

Treatment 3: Laser Treatment

Laser therapy has emerged as an innovative and highly effective approach for treating verrucas. Our Verruca Clinic offers advanced laser treatments that target and destroy the verruca tissue while leaving the surrounding healthy skin unaffected. This non-invasive procedure typically requires multiple sessions for optimal results. Laser treatment represents a safe and efficient option to remove stubborn verrucas.

Treatment 4: Surgical Treatment with Needling - Local Anaesthetic

For persistent and resistant verrucas that have not responded to other treatments, surgical intervention with needling may be recommended. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia, ensuring your comfort throughout the process. Our skilled podiatrists will puncture the verruca tissue with a fine needle, creating controlled microtrauma. This stimulates an immune response, encouraging your body to eliminate the verruca. Following the procedure, we will provide detailed post-operative care instructions to facilitate a smooth recovery.
