    Verruca Needling

    A verruca is a harmless virus that lives in the layers of the skin, it comes from the same family as warts. Verrucae (multiple) often present with small black dots which are blood capillaries and can be rough in appearance, they are contagious and can sometimes be painful, uncomfortable and unsightly causing embarrassment.

    Verrucae are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV) they spread when the skin comes into contact with contaminated areas. If you have a weakened immune system or stressed, you may be prone to verrucae.

     

    What is Verruca Needling?

    Verruca needling was first described by Gordon Falknor in 1969. The process involves causing physical trauma to the area using a sterile needle, the aim is to reintroduce the verruca cells into the blood stream to gain an immune response.

     

    How many treatments will I need?

    You will need an assessment appointment by a podiatrist to ensure you have the correct diagnosis of a verruca and suitable for needling treatment. This will then be followed by 3 appointments. The first appointment will be the needling procedure, we will then see you 1 week later to review the area and debride any uncomfortable eschar and deflect pressure. The third appointment will be 8 weeks later for final inspection to review if the verruca has resolved.
