Verrucae Dry Needling

Welcome to Sole Sister Podiatry in Brighton!!

From October We will be offering a new treatment For Verrucae.

Falknor`s needling procedure is a form of soft tissue therapy which is intended to break down the verruca and create a controlled inflammatory response which, in turn, stimulates the body’s immune system to recognize the virus and destroy it. The treatment has been around for over 45 years. It works by puncturing the verruca with an empty sterile needle many times, the viral particles are directly exposed to the fatty tissue beneath the skin where the body is rich in immune regulators. Here, the immune system can recognize and destroy the virus. As this immune response is often systemic, treatment of only one Verruca is required even where there are many lesions as spontaneous remission occurs in all, or most, Verrucae at the same time.

The procedure is carried out painlessly under a local anesthetic and only mild soreness the following day has been reported by a few patients, although the majority of patients feel no discomfort at all following treatment. 3 follow up appointments are required over a 16-week period. It is an ideal treatment for a busy person. Please call the clinic for further information.
