The Podiatrist will begin by injecting a local anaesthetic into the foot to ensure that you are pain free throughout the procedure. Once the foot is numb the verrucae will be punctured using a sterile needle to disrupt each individual papillae in the verruca – this will encourage the body to initiate an immune response, allowing the body to deal with the verruca itself.
The lesion will then be cleaned and dressed and a follow up appointment will be made for you. Following the procedure there is very little aftercare involved. There should be very little discomfort and you should be able to resume your normal activities shortly after your appointment. We do advise you to organise transport to and from your appointment as your foot may be numb following the procedure.
