Warts are benign (non-cancerous) skin growths, most commonly found on the hands and feet. They are caused by viruses (there are around 60 known wart-causing viruses in existence). Warts are highly contagious as the affected skin cells release the viruses, so hygiene is of the utmost importance if you are affected.
Typical types of wart are: common, plane, mosaic, plantar (verrucae), filiform and periungual.
This procedure can be done under local anaesthetic. The wart or verrucae is removed immediately in this treatment option.
