Dry Needling - This treatment is a surgical proceedure performed under local anaesthesia. It is particularly effective against long standing Verrucae allowing the immune system to innoculate the underlying tissue to resolve the infection. This treatment is for those who have tried every other treatment including laser or those who would like their Verrucae to go quickly.
