Warts are incredibly common, but they can be very embarrassing as they are often resistant to home DIY treatments.

Most patients will have already seen their GP or tried cryotherapy (freezing) and wart creams at home with little or no success.

At Cosmedics we can get rid of warts that occur in common areas such as the face, neck, fingers, hands and feet. Our experts also can treat more sensitive areas such as the genital areas. See genital wart removal.

Wart Removal FAQ: Questions & Answers

What is the best home treatment to get rid of warts?

Close Icon

Treat them early and properly. Simple measures are effective but need to be done regularly and often for 4-6 weeks. We would recommend the following self-help or home treatment:

  • Pare the wart down with emery board or sandpaper until almost bleeding DAILY
  • Apply OCCLUSAL solution (salicylic acid 26%) DAILY
  • Wrap the wart in duct tape DAILY
  • Continue for 4-6 weeks

What is the best treatment to remove warts?

Close Icon

The best treatments for warts depend on the wart and its position on the body.

  • Topical creams – takes months, only useful for small thin warts. Cryotherapy for freezing off the wart helps with smaller warts and some thicker ones but in between, you would need to do the above home treatment.
  • Laser surgery – the most effective, removes wart in a single session in most cases. Laser surgery for warts is our speciality. This is more invasive but removes the wart in one session. Requires local anaesthetic which numbs the area. Healing takes up to 2 weeks. Occasionally can leave a small scar but most patients prefer this to a wart on their fingers or face.
  • Surgery for larger/more resistant warts
  • Freezing – a possible option for smaller warts, but takes multiple treatments. You may also need 2-3 freezing sessions normally 2-3 weeks apart.
  • We also treat genital warts and that often sexually transmitted infections

Where do I start with warts?

Close Icon
  • Verruca – acid creams from the chemist are the first step. If this does not work then our doctors can offer to freeze or laser them off.
  • Facial Warts – These more commonly occur in men around the chin and mouth area as warts flare up due to shaving. The best treatment is laser surgery.
  • Finger/Hand Warts Removal – For finger and hand warts which are common in adults as well as children, treatments include acid remedies from the chemist alongside paring down and covering. A quicker option is freezing and/or laser surgery.

Why do we get warts?

Close Icon

Warts are commonly transmitted from person to person as they are a Human papilloma virus and easily spread via contact. Often you will pick up the virus and not know it and then the wart will appear at a later stage. It is very common.

Why have I got warts?

Close Icon

Mostly just bad luck and the key is to treat them early before they get ‘roots’ and become very ingrown. In the genital area warts are often sexually transmitted.

Will warts just go?

Close Icon

In some cases yes but this can take up to 18 months before the virus burns itself out. Unfortunately, if they don’t the wart can have grown quite large and thick which means it will be difficult to remove.

Wart treatment options

Close Icon

For plantar warts (verruca), acid creams from the chemist are the first step. If this does not work then our doctors can offer to laser them off.

Facial warts more commonly occur in men around the chin and mouth area as warts flare up due to shaving. The best treatment is laser surgery.

For finger and hand warts which are common in adults as well as children, treatments include acid remedies from the chemist alongside paring down and covering in duct tape. A quicker option is freezing and/or laser surgery.

Professional wart and skin tag removal are extremely effective. There are 3 options used by Cosmedics, depending on the problem. Laser, surgery or cryotherapy (freezing treatment).

Wart removal consultation

Close Icon

Doctor consultations are £50 with one of our highly experienced team.

Prices for treatments carried out in the same appointment as the consultation will include the £50 consultation fee (note: same-day procedures are only undertaken where the procedure is deemed appropriate to do so AND the patient understands the full extent of the costs, risks and potential side effects and is consenting to proceed on that knowledge).

Wart Histology/Testing

Close Icon

**We may advise patients to have their skin lesions sent for histology/testing. We charge the lowest prices possible for histology as we realise patients often feel it is not required, but occasionally rare or suspicious things are detected early on in lesions that can look normal, which is why this is good practice. We make no financial gain from this service.

Any test results or correspondence will be sent to your email account via an encrypted system called Egress. Should this not be preferable, please let us know at your appointment.

Do you treat genital warts?

Close Icon

Yes, we do and have treated a great many patients who didn’t know where else to turn. Our doctors and surgeons can treat all genital areas including penis, vagina, groin, pubic and anal areas. Find out more about genital wart removal.


Close Icon

Wart removal often leaves a wound like a small graze. These typically heal over 1-2 weeks. They can be slightly sore for the first few days so can take some paracetamol or ibuprofen. The wounds ideally need to be covered for the first week and then they can be let open to the air.

If the wound shows signs of getting more painful after a week then let us know as this may indicate an infection.

Warts are particularly stubborn and can recur, so if this is the case then it may need a follow up treatment.

Wart Removal Methods

Our experts use a variety of wart removal techniques, according to their diagnosis of the lesion.

1. Laser wart removal and wart removal surgery

This option is used for resistant warts that have failed to respond to all other methods and used specifically for thick larger warts. It involves an injection to numb the warty area and then the whole wart is literally burned off leaving a wound that will take 1-2 weeks to heal.

2. Surgery (minor)

Minor surgery is also a common option for skin tags. They can sometimes be numerous in number and in delicate areas that freezing skin tags may not be ideal for. The procedure is normally done with some anaesthetic so no pain is felt and is very simple and quick to do by simply snipping them off and cauterizing the base to stop recurrence.

3. Cryotherapy / Freezing

For small warts and skin tags, freezing is sometimes the simplest method of removal. This usually involves applying some liquid nitrogen spray onto the lesion which then blisters for a few days before scabbing and falling off. With resistant warts sometimes a daily regime of paring down (with an emery board), then applying Occlusal cream to burn off the wart and then wrapping in the tape is also required.

Warts can be commonly confused or labelled as skin tags and vice versa so for more information see skin tags. If you are unsure of the exact nature of what you need please call us on 0207 386 0464 and our experienced advisors will be happy to help answer your queries.
