A verruca is a wart on the foot. They are generally on the sole, but can be found elsewhere on the foot.

They are caused by HPV, or Human Papiloma Virus, and usually disappear of their own accord after two to three years, particularly with children. Verrucae are contagious and are generally caught from walking through communal changing areas. One thing you should never do to verrucae is file them. Some over-the-counter treatments will tell you to do so, but we find this seems to spread them.

We have invested in the latest technology to help you! We are proud to be a certified Swift Provider. Swift is an award-winning verruca treatment that uses microwave energy to treat the affected area.

Swift is a verruca treatment with a difference. Unlike other verruca treatments, Swift uses microwave energy, which is delivered through a special probe applied to the skin, to treat the affected tissue. As Swift does not break the surface of the skin, there is no need for bandages or dressing, leaving you to carry on your day as normal. If you’d like to see exactly how this treatment works take a moment to watch the video below.
