This delightful client believed she had a corn on her foot and had been treating it at home using corn plasters but found little resolve. She came to see me and here you can see it was a verruca. In this video the treatment involved debridement, cryotherapy otherwise known as freezing, followed by salicylic acid application.By removing the core of the verruca it will allow the acid to penetrate and actively work on the verruca site. NON INVASIVE treatment is a good first tempt for verrucae removal. Sometimes people will only need one treatment and others will require more, this depends on how the immune system reacts to the treatment.
During this video the verruca was debrided and enucleated using a scalpel (15 blade) technique, pre and post anti- bacterial cleanse is used. The whole process is without the use of anaesthetics.
