What are Warts?

Plantar warts (aka verrucas) are skin lesions that develop along the bottoms of feet and/or along the toes. They are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV) and often look like a callus. Depending on the size and location, they may, or may not, be painful.

Why Does Needling Work?

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.

The Procedure: What to Expect

  • The skin surrounding the area of the wart will be numbed up first with local anesthetic

  • The wart will then be punctured several times and then covered

  • Aftercare instructions will be dispensed and follow-up appointments will be made at 10-14 days and again 6-8 weeks after the procedure to see how you are progressing
