Needling is the use of a needle to pierce the verrucae & wart lesions multiple to create a cellular response and inflammatory response at the site of the lesion.
When there are multiple lesions the primary and largest are targeted.
This procedure is completed under local anaesthesia.
Once the area is numb, any overlying hard skin is reduced. The area is cleansed, a needle is used to pierce the verrucae, this is repeated over and over to the lesion. Once completed a light dressing is applied with a deflective pad which needs to remain in place and dry for 24hours.
