What are warts and verrucas?

Warts and verrucas, common skin growths caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), present as small, rough growths on the skin and specifically on the soles of the feet, known as verrucas or plantar warts.

HPV infiltrates the skin through tiny cuts or breaks, triggering cell overgrowth and wart formation.

These growths are highly contagious, spreading through direct contact, particularly thriving in warm, moist environments like communal showers and swimming pools.

Despite their typically harmless nature, the challenge lies in their resilience to simple home treatments and the decreasing availability of wart treatment services in GP practices.

At Freyja Medical, we address this concern by offering effective wart and verruca treatment options, including topical medications, cryotherapy, and laser therapy, to alleviate symptoms and facilitate their removal, ensuring comprehensive dermatological care for our clients.

Cryotherapy is a highly effective treatment for warts and verrucas, involving the application of extreme cold, with liquid nitrogen, to freeze and eliminate the affected tissue.

This quick procedure disrupts the virus responsible for the growth, causing the wart or verruca to blister and eventually fall off.

Administered by a dermatologist, cryotherapy offers a safe and efficient solution with minimal discomfort and downtime for patients.

What causes warts and verrucas?

Warts and verrucas are primarily caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), which infects the outer layer of skin through tiny cuts, abrasions, or breaks in the skin’s surface.

Once the virus enters the skin, it stimulates the rapid growth of cells in the affected area, resulting in the formation of warts or verrucas.

HPV is highly contagious and can spread through direct contact with an infected individual or indirectly through contaminated surfaces.

Additionally, various factors can increase the likelihood of developing warts and verrucas, including:

  • Weakened immune system
  • Skin trauma
  • Prolonged exposure to warm, moist environments like swimming pools or communal showers
Can they be cured?

While warts and verrucas can be effectively treated, they may not always be completely cured.

Treatment options aim to remove the visible growths and eliminate the underlying virus, but recurrence is possible, especially if the immune system does not fully clear the HPV infection.

However, with proper treatment and follow-up care, many individuals experience successful resolution of warts and verrucas.

Consulting a dermatologist is essential for determining the best treatment plan.

How long does it take to see results from warts and verrucas treatments?

The time it takes to see results from dermatological treatments for warts and verrucas, such as cryotherapy and laser therapy, can vary.

Some individuals may notice visible improvement within a few days to weeks after treatment as the growths begin to shrink or disappear.

However, depending on factors like the size, location, and severity of the growths, multiple treatment sessions may be necessary to achieve complete resolution.

It’s important to follow the dermatologist’s recommended treatment plan and attend follow-up appointments as needed to monitor progress and ensure optimal outcomes.

Are the treatments painful?

Treatments like cryotherapy and laser therapy for warts and verrucas may cause discomfort. However, most individuals tolerate them well.

Are the treatments safe?

Yes, wart and verruca treatments like cryotherapy and laser therapy are generally safe when performed by trained dermatologists.

While they may cause temporary side effects such as discomfort or redness, these treatments have a proven track record of effectiveness in treating these skin conditions.

It’s important to follow your dermatologist’s guidance and attend follow-up appointments for optimal results and to address any concerns.

Are there any side effects from the treatments?

Yes, both cryotherapy and laser therapy for warts and verrucas can cause temporary side effects such as:

  • Pain
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Blistering
  • Changes in pigmentation at the treatment site

These side effects are typically mild and tend to resolve on their own.

While serious side effects are rare, it’s crucial to follow your dermatologist’s instructions. Report any unusual reactions following treatment promptly.
