Verrucas can be painful to walk on and painful to treat using traditional methods.

Why you might need it

Verrucas are a type of wart which affect the sole of the feet and look like small rough bumps, sometimes with a black dot (blood vessel) in the middle. They can be painful to walk on and painful to treat using traditional methods.

Low level laser therapy is a virtually pain free verruca treatment for patients of all ages, including those who are pregnant.

Laser verruca treatment is available all week through the Spire Hartswood Hospital physiotherapy team.

Spire Hartswood Hospital offers low level laser therapy as a virtually pain free verruca treatment for patients of all ages, including those who are pregnant.

Often 5-10 sessions are recommended and each session is 30 minutes long and approximately two weeks apart.

Your verrucae will be re-assessed at each session to check the progress and the treatment programme tailored as necessary.

Infection control and laser safety processes are in place throughout your treatment in a clean and safe private hospital environment.

Patients will leave with medical tape covering the treated area and are advised to continue applying tape in between treatments for 50% of the time, leaving time for the skin to breathe in between applications.

There is no need for a GP referral. Simply call 01277 266 780 to book your appointment.
