Warts are caused by a virus called Human Papilloma (HPV). When you contract the virus on your hands and face, a small “cauliflower-like” growth appears, known as a wart.
We only treat warts on the face or hands. The wart is curetted and then cautery or a hyfrecator is used to stop any bleeding. A scab forms that may last for 7-10 days and then hopefully there will no longer be a wart. However, in some cases, 1-3 treatments may be necessary for clearance of the wart.
Whilst the success rate of this treatment is very high, it is not 100% as some warts fail to respond despite our best efforts.
There is a consultation fee of £50 with Dr Patel, which is refundable against the cost of the treatment.
