Verruca Treatment Edinburgh

Personalised Verruca Treatment

One of the most common treatments we offer at Active Feet is verruca treatment. A verruca is a plantar wart that is most frequently found on the soles of the feet or in the toe area. They are most common in but are not limited to children and young adults and can be passed on simply by walking barefoot across the same surface as someone with a verruca. The virus that causes a verruca is harmless with the only issue being when the wart itself begins causing pain or discomfort. This typically only occurs when the verruca is located on a weight bearing area of the foot, but many people opt for verruca removal regardless of this to eliminate the chance of growth or spread and because they can be unsightly.

During your verruca consultation, one of our expert podiatrists will examine your plantar wart and guide you through your treatment options. We are the leading provider of verruca treatment in Edinburgh due to our use of the latest and most effective technology. At Active Feet, we offer Swift microwave therapy which is a brand-new technology that has been developed in the UK and specifically designed for the use of verruca removal. Swift verruca treatment involves microwave energy which is applied to the skin through a probe and targets the affected tissue. Like many verruca treatments, you may experience some minor discomfort however this is only temporary, and you will be able to return to everyday life almost instantly. The number of sessions of microwave verruca treatment varies from patient to patient but one of our podiatrists will discuss this with you during your consultation.

If you wish to find out more about the various treatments available, then get in touch with our team today and we will be more than happy to discuss these with you. Alternatively, book a consultation where one of our podiatrists can offer advice which is more tailored to your specific needs. Our wealth of knowledge allows us to provide all types of verruca removals and makes us the leading provider of verruca treatment in Edinburgh.

Like many treatments for skin lesions, some minor discomfort may be experienced. Before treatment your podiatrist may decide to reduce the lesion with a blade. Pain levels vary from person to person but most people undergoing Swift liken it to a pain similar to an injection or a scratch, lasting 2 – 3 seconds then quickly subsiding.
This is dependent on how you respond to treatment. In most cases, you may need more than one treatment 3 to 4 weeks apart depending on your body’s response. Your Podiatrist will discuss this with you at your appointment.

Can’t recommend Active Feet highly enough, their service is friendly, efficient and organised. Calvin in particular really helped me to resolve the issue I had with my foot. His assessment was thorough, treatment plan well-explained, and he was really friendly and personable.

I've had 2 appointments with Calvin and he has improved my walking and pain through the use of orthotics and exercises. I'm really impressed by the thorough assessment and follow up and the results I've had. This has been a hugely positive experience and Calvin and reception team are very professional and friendly. Would highly recommend

After spending a lot of time and money trying off the shelf orthotics, a couple of visits to Calvin at Active Feet, and professionally modified insoles, appears to have sorted the problem. I can't recommend him highly enough.

I cannot recommend this place highly enough. My son who is autistic had problems with his toe nails, he was seen by Jamie who was so good and patient with him. He took his time and talked him through what was happening putting my son at ease. Top class service.

I went to them to treat a verruca on my foot. They were very honest about the situation and they told me it will take too many sessions before we start see any results. They were very professional and very careful about looking after my foot, totally recommend them. Update, after 3 sessions using Swift my foot started to get very itchy but the verruca did not change in size at all. I called the GP and it gave me Daktacort cream. After a week, the verruca started to disappear. I continued using it once a week after that and the verruca completely disappeared. Daktacort cream is not used for verruca but it had a magic effect on it. They should start using it for verruca, less pain and less money.
