Verruca Treatment Glasgow

Professional Verrucae & Wart Treatment in the Heart of Glasgow

Verruca Treatment Glasgow

Treatment options range from topical solutions that you can continue with at home to more advanced clinical options that are carried out by our fully trained podiatrists for optimal results. 

If you notice any unusual growths anywhere on your body, a professional should always examine it — especially if they appear on your feet. For these specific spots, a podiatrist will be able to diagnose the issue quickly and efficiently.

Most of the unusual lumps that form on feet are verruca’s. They are a common foot issue that will affect most people at some point during their lifetime.

Verruca’s are known for being difficult to treat, because the virus is so persistent. Although most of the time, verruca’s will disappear on their own after two years, sometimes patients want to speed up this process in order to get rid of it or lessen the symptoms. If you’re interested in treatments for your verruca, speak with our podiatrist team at La Preme.

Find out more about our treatment options below.

Treatment Options

Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy is the process of freezing the verruca or wart with liquid nitrogen to cause the lesion to shrink and resolve. This treatment is carried out every few weeks and would be recommended for finger warts or small verrucas.

Falknor’s needling

This soft tissue therapy works by creating a controlled inflammatory response, targeting and stimulating the immune system. This will encourage the body’s defence system to recognise and destroy the virus.

Verrutop

This is a topical treatment for the destruction of verrucas. It contains three different organic acids combined with copper and zinc salts and nitric acid to create a ‘nitric zinc complex’. This substance dehydrates, breaks down and weakens the virus.

  • This form of treatment has a variable cost, therefore prices are available upon request only.

  • Up to 3 needling treatments may be required. Each needling appointment will take approximately 1 hour and the check-up appointments will be 20 minutes.

    Single treatment for 1 foot =£279. This includes 1 needling treatment and follows up appointments 1 week later and 10 weeks later.

    The full package for 1 foot is £689. This includes 3 treatment sessions of needling and includes all the relevant follow up appointments.

FAQ’s

  • Verrucae are benign lesions that usually appear on the soles of your feet. You may hear them referred to as plantar warts. They are caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) that also causes common warts and cold sores.  The virus causes an excess amount of keratin production in the top layer of the skin (epidermis). This extra keratin production then forms the rough, hard texture of a verruca.

  • The virus spreads by direct human to human contact by a shared surface. It can be contracted from other people with verrucae, or from shared surfaces that have come into contact with someone infected with HPV.

  • No. Verrucas are not dangerous. Verrucae are harmless but can be uncomfortable and painful depending on where on the foot they develop.

  • We do not offer verruca treatment for children under the age of 10. This is because the treatments can cause discomfort which could be distressing for children. Secondly, there may be some scarring which could be problematic for your child as they get older.

    And finally, letting your child’s body fight the virus itself is a great way for it to create antibodies. These protect against further episodes of verruca’s in the future. Where possible, we would advise no treatment on a child’s verruca.  This allows their immune systems to fight the virus naturally.
