Warning! Satisfying before and after photo coming up…

Now firstly you will see I’m a dreadful photographer, but hopefully, you’ll be able to see what we achieved! The verrucas seen in the first photo were present on this gentleman’s foot for the best part of 9 years.

I’m pleased to say that after one, yes just ONE dry needling treatment they have completely gone!

Toe with verruca



So What Is Dry Needling?

Dry needling is carried out painlessly under local anaesthetic. A sterile needle is used to cause a localised trauma to the verruca itself. The aim of this is to implant the virally infected cells deeper into the tissue where it is quickly detected by the immune system and an immune response is stimulated. This process has been around for nearly 40 years but it’s only recently reaching the shores of the UK from the United States. It is very effective and suitable for most verrucas.

The patient was very happy with the results and we are too! 

If you have any questions about any of the treatments at Sussex Foot Centre or are in need of some help with verrucas then please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
