The whole session takes about 15-30 minutes. Prior to this treatment a local anaesthetic will be administered, to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment. The procedure involves the use of a surgical instrument called a curette to scrape off and remove the wart. This will create a wound and the base of the wart will be destroyed and cauterized using an electric needle. A small stitch may be required. Following the treatment, you can return to your daily activities immediately after your and a protective dressing will be applied, so that you do not rub or catch the skin.
Recovery from wart excision depends on the lesion’s size, shape, and location. You may be advised to avoid strenuous activities for 2-4 weeks to avoid trauma to the site. For plantar excisions, you may use crutches to relieve the pressure and pain.
It is very important to keep your wound clean with soap and water to prevent infection. You may cover it with a small bandage to protect it for a few days. If the bandage gets wet, change it with a clean, dry bandage. A soft scab will form over the treated area.
