Needling is a minor surgical procedure.
The goal is to implant infected cells into the dermis thus stimulating an immune response and, therefore; destruction of the virus. Often only one session is needed but a course of of needling may be needed for stubborn warts/verrucae. Success rates are higher than traditional treatments like cryotherapy (freezing). Follow-up consultation is included in the price of treatment.
Local anaesthetic is injected into the toe or ankle.
The area is cleansed with iodine and a sterile needle is used to puncture the verruca lesion and dermo-epidermal junction multiple times.
aA sterile dressing and padding is applied. We will then see you within 2 weeks for a follow-up. Final result is not usually seen untill a few months fter the procedure.
Includes a follow-up appointment
