Verrucas

Verrucae or Plantar Warts are lesions found particularly over the pressure areas of the feet.  A Verruca starts as a tiny pink area speckled with black dots but can become dark with a rough crumbly layer of skin with a 'pepper pot' appearance.  Verrucae vary in size from a pin head to a large mosaic Verruca covering a whole section of the sole and can be extremely painful and resilient to methods of removal.  A verruca or wart is usually diamond in shape and, for quick success, needs both the surface and the root treated which is achieved with the Advanced Cosmetic Procedure of heat from a fine micro-probe which destroys the cells which create the verruca at the base as well as destroying the core and tip of the verruca.

SOME COMMON CAUSES OF VERRUCAS....
Verrucae are viral and highly contagious.  Socks, shoes and towels used should be kept non-contaminated and for individual use only. Eventually verrucae will disappear naturally but take longer in an adult, that being anything up to about 3 years during which time they can become very painful.

WHY CHOOSE US

The Advanced Cosmetic Procedure can only be carried out at our clinic on persons over the age of 18.
The energy is released over the whole surface area of the Verruca by the small probe releasing heat over the affected area and a slight stinging sensation will be experienced.  The probe is then inserted a number of times into the Verruca and a sensation will be experienced.  Treatment is a little uncomfortable but highly effective although sometimes more that one treatment is required. If a second or further visit is required, this will not be until 6 weeks after the first.

Following treatment you may experience:
   -   A slight reddening and/or swelling of the skin in the area.
   -   Sensitivity and warmth in the area that has been treated.
   -   The appearance of the Verruca may change once treated, a scab may form and eventually fall away naturally (about 6 weeks)
   -   The skin may itch as the healing process takes place.

Aftercare is discussed and notes are given when the procedure is carried out.
