Warts and Verrucae

Warts and verrucae are rough lumps or growths which can appear anywhere on the skin caused by infection of your skin with the human papilloma virus (HPV). Verrucae are the same as warts but appear mostly on the feet and can look flatter than warts on the rest of the body. They can spread by direct skin-to skin contact or may be spread to another area of skin. There are multiple forms of warts and verrucae. On top of their unsighted appearance, they can cause pain and discomfort if they are on your feet or near your nail beds. Sometimes, common warts may crack and bleed.

Warts and verrucae are usually harmless away by themselves without treatment. and, in many cases, go away by themselves without treatment. However, this can take months, or even years, which is not usually acceptable for those who experience them. Over-the-counter treatments may be effective but can be recalcitrant and commonly recur.

Despite the wide variety of therapies available for warts and verrucae, no single treatment is completely effective for all patients. Successful treatment of warts is site-dependent, may require trial and error, and might necessitate combination treatment.

At the London Cosmetic Clinic we offer clinically-proven methods and techniques, to quickly and effectively remove your warts or verrucae, permanently.

Laser treatments for warts and verrucae

Laser treatment for warts and verrucae utilises a clinical device which offers a highly targeted beam of laser light, which is aimed at the skin lesion. This laser beam heats up the blood vessels which destroys the blood supply to the wart. This in turn, starves the wart of blood and nutrients, so it dies and fall off naturally within 1 to 2 weeks. The laser’s heat may also attack the virus that causes the wart. This method usually requires a couple of treatments to be most effective.
