Warts and Verrucas are extremely common and can effect anyone at any stage of life. Caused by a virus and therefore easily spread, treatments for warts and verrucas come in many shapes and forms and are readily available.
Over the counter topical medicines and sprays tend to be peoples first choice when it comes to removal, however these treatments can take several months to work through and are often ineffective. A chiropodist may offer to remove a wart or verruca by cutting/parring down the effected area, but this can be very painful. So why not try Fotona laser wart and verruca removal instead?
With warmer weather on the horizon (hopefully!) and our new found freedom from lockdown restrictions easing as the weeks go by, we know many of you will be racing to ditch the socks and boots in favour of flip flops and sandals to head away on holiday or socialise with friends once again. Fotona laser wart and verruca removal is one of the safest, quickest and most effective ways to be treated, so you’ll be summer ready in no time at all.
At the Dr Tanja Phillips Medical Aesthetic Clinic, our laser uses deep and selective absorption of energy, which will coagulate (cut off) blood vessels feeding the wart or verruca. As the blood supply is cut off, this causes the subsequent destruction of the wart or verruca. The laser energy can penetrate through thickened or calloused skin and is highly effective.
In addition to the destruction of the wart or verruca, the laser helps to promotes faster healing and will reduce the possibility of recurrence.
Depending on the size and severity of the wart or verruca, 1-3 treatment sessions may be required with 2 weekly intervals. However patients will start to see results after their first visit. Each session can take between 20-30 minutes and there is no need for local anaesthetic or post procedure skincare (Apart from our no1 rule of course, SPF everyday!)
Warts and verrucas are spread like most common viruses, so it is important to remember the following:
