Wart Needling Procedure
Plantar warts (aka plantar verrucas) are skin lesions that develop along the bottoms of the feet or along the toes. They are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV) and often look like calluses. Depending on the size and location, they may be painful.
Why Needling? - Because the virus lives along the outside of the skin, the body does not recognize it, making it difficult to treat. Therefore, by needling the skin and underlying tissues, it pushes the wart cells into the underlying tissues. This will trigger an immune response and eventually the wart deteriorates.
