Verrucas are very contagious and can be passed on by skin-to-skin contact or indirectly.
Knightsbridge, London (PRWEB UK) 25 March 2013
Beauchamp Foot Care is now offering a new treatment for the removal of verrucas and warts. Although there are a number of treatment options available, the one that Beauchamp Foot Care now usually recommends is laser treatment.
Verrucas are warts that can develop on the soles of the feet. They are often painful and may be unsightly. They are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV) which produces a high amount of the hard protein keratin. The keratin causes a rough, hard texture to develop. Verrucas are very contagious and can be passed on by skin-to-skin contact or indirectly at places like changing rooms or public swimming pools.
There are a number of treatment options available, which can be explained by the podiatrists at Beauchamp Foot Care. These include cryotherapy or freezing, surgery, or the application of chemicals. The treatment that is provided by Beauchamp Foot Care is a non-invasive laser treatment.
The laser treatment uses a laser light beam to target and destroy the verruca without damaging the surrounding skin. Patients begin with a chiropody treatment to prepare the feet then subsequent treatments follow. Because verrucas and warts can be difficult to remove, several treatments will usually be required and the infection may sometimes return.
The first appointment includes a chiropody session and laser treatment for £250. Each follow up treatment is £150 each. For more information contact Beauchamp Foot Care on 0800 907 0093 or visit http://www.beauchampfootcare.com/other-services/verruca-removal
