Warts and verrucae



We have a selection of proven-effective removal methods for warts & verrucas, including cryotherapy and surgical excision.

Understanding Cryotherapy for Wart Removal:

Cryotherapy involves the use of extreme cold to freeze and remove abnormal tissue, making it a popular choice for wart removal. Liquid nitrogen, which has an extremely low temperature, is typically used in cryotherapy to freeze the wart, causing the affected tissue to die and eventually fall off.

Key Benefits of Cryotherapy for Wart Removal:

1. Non-Invasive Procedure: Cryotherapy is a non-invasive method, meaning it doesn't require surgical incisions. This makes it a preferred option for those who wish to avoid invasive procedures.

2. Quick and Efficient: The cryotherapy procedure is usually quick, with each treatment session lasting only a few minutes. Multiple warts can be treated in a single session, making it a time-efficient solution.

3. Minimal Discomfort: While patients may experience some discomfort during the freezing process, it is generally well-tolerated. The procedure is brief, and any discomfort is temporary.

4. Versatility: Cryotherapy is versatile and can be used to treat various types of warts, including common warts, plantar warts (on the soles of the feet), and flat warts.

The Cryotherapy Procedure:

Consultation: The process typically begins with a consultation with Rebecca . The type, size, and location of the warts are assessed to determine the suitability of cryotherapy.

Preparation: The affected area is cleaned thoroughly to remove any dirt or oils that could hinder the freezing process. A local anesthetic is not usually required for cryotherapy, given its minimally invasive nature.

Application of Liquid Nitrogen: Using a cotton swab or spray, the healthcare professional applies liquid nitrogen to the wart. This freezes the wart and the surrounding tissue, causing a blister to form beneath the wart.
Post-Treatment Care: Following the procedure, patients may experience redness, swelling, or a burning sensation in the treated area. Over-the-counter pain relievers and proper care of the treated site can help manage any discomfort.
