At the Aesthetic Derma clinic, Dr Nikolaidou combines medical and cosmetic dermatology to address certain skin concerns, including warts/verrucas. Verrucas/warts can be treated with various methods including topical treatments or cryotherapy (freezing the skin with liquid nitrogen spray). Our experienced doctor will guide you on the most appropriate threatment for you, according to your needs.

Both cryotherapy and diathermy are well-tolerated treatments. Following cryotherapy, any redness, swelling, blistering or discomfort will settle after 2-3 days and the area treated will scab and eventually fall off. Treatment may be repeated after 2-3 weeks if further work is required. Larger lesions usually require several treatments of freezing.

Following diathermy, the wound can take up to 6 weeks to heal and can leave a scar. This works in most cases, however please note that 20% of warts return within a few months, so repeat treatments are sometimes required.

Prior to the treatment

The doctor will identify the areas that require treatment. The skin will be thoroughly cleaned and prepared for the procedure. A local anaesthetic will be given.

During the Treatment

Excess skin is scraped away and the base is subsequently burned. Depending on the case, the doctor will either freeze or heat the area with an electrical current by using a sterile probe. Generally, 2 to 3 cycles of freezing are necessary to treat skin tags. The procedure takes about 20 – 30 minutes.

After the Treatment

You should avoid touching the area or applying any products for 24 hours after treatment to prevent infection. Specific post-procedure care instructions will be given to you on the day of your visit.
