Warts are small, rough growths which are caused by certain strains of the human papilloma virus (HPV).  They can appear anywhere on the skin but are most commonly seen on the hands and feet.  Verrucae (also known as a plantar wart) is a wart on the sole of the feet.

Warts occur when the virus comes in contact with your skin and causes infection.  They are most likely to develop on broken skin because the virus is able to enter the top layer of skin through scratches or cuts.  Certain people are more likely to get warts than others, dermatologists still don’t know why.  Children get warts more often than adults because their immune systems have not yet built up their defences against numerous types of human papilloma virus that exist.  Warts are contagious.  

Cost

These are very hard to remove and we cannot guarantee the amount of treatments that will be needed. We currently recommend 2 treatments with 3-4 weeks of each other, but it may need more.

Size also plays a part, small regular Warts/ Verrucae cost £75 for 2 treatments, larger ones will cot more and free consultation will determine this.
