Warts and Verruca treatment in Reading | Hilton Skin Clinics

Warts and Verrucas


Warts and verrucae are extremely common. They’re small, rough lumps that typically appear on the hands or feet, but some may appear on different parts of the body.

Verrucae are defined as lumps usually appearing on the soles of feet or in-between toes. Most people develop warts or verrucae at least once in their life, with children or teenagers tending to be more prone.



An infection of HPV (human papilloma virus) causes warts and verrucae, with many not even realising they have the virus as no other symptoms are usually present. HPV increases the amount of keratin produced by the body – the excess keratin develops in the epidermis (top layers of skin), and this is what causes warts and verrucae to occur.

Warts and verrucae are extremely contagious and can be passed on through close skin contact. They may take a few months to develop following the initial infection.



Here at Hilton Skin Clinics, we offer an advanced form of electrolysis for the treatment of warts and verrucae.

A tiny needle is inserted directly into the growth itself, with a tiny electric current being passed through the needle into the wart. Cauterization occurs, causing it to eventually scab-over and fall off.

Treatment typically takes around 15 minutes, but this strongly depends on the size of the wart or verrucae being removed.

They’ll typically fall off to reveal smooth, blemish-free skin within just one week of treatment, but some growths may be more resistant. This may then require more than one treatment over a period of time until removal is successfully achieved.

Treatment is generally very well tolerated among clients, with many reporting very little pain or discomfort.
