What is a Wart? Warts are small raised lumps on the skin’s surface, which are caused by a viral infection. Warts usually appear on the hands and feet, however, they can spread to other areas of the body. Verrucas are warts that develop on the soles of the feet. Warts vary in appearance and may develop singly or in clusters. What causes warts? Warts are an infection in the top layer of skin, caused by a virus called the human papillomavirus (HPV). This virus invades the outer layer of skin, causing a rapid growth of skin cells, which form the bumpy and hard texture of a wart. Warts are contagious and the infection can be easily spread by skin contact. How Can Warts Be Removed?

Our team of expert dermatologists are experienced in removing warts from the face, body and even sensitive and hard to reach areas. How long does the removal take? Most wart removal London techniques are quick and usually last no more than 20 minutes, however, removal time varies depending on the size and deepness of the wart. Warts and verrucas do have a habit of returning, so your treatment may need to be repeated to permanently remove them. During your consultation, your dermatologist will examine your wart and be able to advise on the number of treatments you may require. Is the removal process painful? The level of discomfort is dependent on the removal technique. For the excision method, the area is numbed with a local anaesthetic. After treatment, the skin may be tender for a few days and will need to have a dressing applied. Will it leave scarring? After treatment the skin may be slightly tender and pink for a few days and we recommend covering the area with a dressing. Once the area has healed, you may notice a slight scar or darker area of skin, however this is temporary and will fade in time. How many sessions will I need to see a difference? This will vary depending on the size and depth of the wart. During your consultation, your dermatologist will examine your wart and be able to advise on the number of treatments you may require. Will the wart return? If the virus that caused the initial wart or verruca to grow is still active in your body, then there is a chance for regrowth.
