Wart treatment and removal Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire

Wart removal – Beaconsfield

The way warts are treated is either with Plaxel Plasma or more likely, by using our medical-grade CryoPen Cryotherapy. With CryoPen, a fine jet of nitrous oxide, freezes the membrane within the wart lesion at minus 89 degrees, causing the supply of blood to the wart, to stop. The wart will eventually fall off over the coming weeks.

Common warts or Plantar warts, are most commonly found on the hands, especially the fingers, hands, knees, scalp and the face.
