Plantar Warts are quite a common condition seen by podiatrists.
Sometimes over the counter treatment options for warts provide little success to stubborn warts. Due to the wart being a virus known as the Human Papillomavirus it can easily spread between individuals. Often your body will become immune to different wart treatments.
The Needling Technique known as Wart Hyfracation requires the use of a Local Anaesthetic to numb the area, while puncturing the Plantar Wart with a sterile needle.
By undertaking this process, it will allow the body to create an immune response. This immune response helps to identify that the virus should not be present and as a result helps clear the wart from your system.
If you are having issues with a wart, book in for an assessment with one of our experienced podiatrists.
