Genital wart removal
Genital warts are generally caused by catching HPV (human papilloma virus) via sexual intercourse at some point since you were sexually active.
The virus can stay dormant for many years and then due to stress, bad luck or local trauma such as shaving the virus can present as warty lesions on the penis, vagina, groin, pubic and anal areas.
It can be extremely embarrassing especially as its impossible to say whether it was a recent or previous partner who had passed it on so trying to identify that contact is somewhat futile.
Same day treatments
Wart treatments are available at NHS clinics however for some patients who have resistant warts that are more severe or want quick treatments then visiting a skin clinic like Cosmedics is the best option.
Privately, we are able to offer more comprehensive freezing laser and surgical options for quicker and more effective results. Treatments can be performed on the same day for peace of mind.

Prices are a guide to the costs and the exact price can only be determined once the doctor has examined you in person. Most warts don’t need histology testing. However, in certain circumstances if the doctor thinks it is necessary, then they will discuss this with you and the related costs.

Your genital wart removal questions answered
How did I get genital warts?
Genital warts are caused by human papilloma virus (HPV). Most people don’t even know when they contracted the virus that causes genital warts (HPV), as the warts can take years to show on the penis or vaginal areas. It is important to remember that it was most likely caught from a earlier partner without realising it.
Similarly, you cannot rely on the visual presence of genital warts to determine if someone is infected with HPV. In some cases, genital warts never appear or can appear years after contracting the virus.
Where do genital warts appear?
In women, genital warts appear inside and outside of the vagina (vagina – labia majora and/or pubic area) and inner thighs.
In men, genital warts can appear on the penis (shaft and/or base), scrotum, testicles, anus, groin and thighs.
In both, they may also occur in or around the anal area (anus)
Do genital warts appear in anal areas?
Sometimes anal warts can also be present but this is rarer. The most common areas for genital warts to appear are around the genitalia (penis/vagina).
Do you offer STD/sexual health screening?
We offer private treatment for genital warts and anal skin tags. However, we do not offer full sexual health screening services. NHS sexual health clinics are able to offer a discrete rapid full set of screening tests for STD’s (sexually transmitted diseases) or STI’s (sexually transmitted infections). You can speak to your doctor first if you prefer, or else book direct at most sexual health clinics. It’s best to research local facilities online or call your GP surgery for initial advice.
Who will I see?
Your consultation and treatment will be with a GMC registered doctor. There is no pre-screening by a layperson and you will only need to discuss your warts with the person who would potentially be providing treatment.
Can I request a male or female doctor?
Most of our clinics have both male and female doctors, so if you have a particular preference we will do our best to accommodate it.
Does genital wart removal hurt?
We use numbing creams and/or local anaesthetic to make the procedure pain-free throughout. You may have some discomfort when the anaesthetic wears off, but this can be managed using normal painkillers (paracetamol).
Genital wart patient reviews
“I was embarrassed and it took a while to call but I am so glad I did as the doctor removed all the warts in one go. It took a few days to heal after the laser treatment but just happy not to have them any longer.”
Mike B. London
“I tried a cream over the internet that burned the skin around the wart but did not remove it depsite using it for weeks. Wish I had just seen a professional in the first place and after trawling the internet found Cosmedics whose doctors all do freezing, laser and surgery for warts. Mine required a bit of everthing but all done in one visit and they have not come back thank god.”
Aiden M. Surrey
“Wish I had done it sooner as got so worked up about it. The treatment involved a laser or some machine that simply burnt the wart off there and then. You can see it vanish and just left a small scab that healed in few days.”
Kim B. Berkshire

How Do Genital Warts Start?
Genital warts tend to be raised little firm bumps on the skin in the pubic, groin, vulva, penile areas. They often start as tiny innocuous little pinhead-sized lesions that protrude from the skin and are easily confused with skin tags or other blemishes in that area. The main difference is that they often spread in number and grow in size albeit slowly and can often just suddenly appear over a few months. They are sexually transmitted, however it impossible to say when you contracted them, as the HPV 9human papillomavirus that causes the lumps can remain dormant for many years. They often tend to emerge when people are run down, stressed and local trauma to the area such as close shaving can cause them to begin or spread.
Genital Warts Treatment
The good news genitals warts treatment in the UK is easy and quick. The NHS is only able to offer creams and occasionally cryotherapy (freezing) to treat genital warts which are slow painful and can take many months. Cosmedics specialise in the best genital wart treatments using a variety of laser wart removal and delicate surgical procedures that ensure genital wart removal. Our doctors understand the sensitive nature of how to treat warts so there is little or no marks afterwards.
Genital wart treatments in men often mean the pubic area at the base of the penis and the penile shaft itself are the most common areas to require treatment. In women, the most common areas are the labia, pubic and perineal areas. They can affect one’s confidence as they are embarrassing and make sexual relationships difficult due to their anxiety.
At Cosmedics we fully understand all of this and that’s why we offer ‘See & Treat’ same-day appointments to remove all genital warts so you can get back to normal life as soon as possible. Our consultations are very discrete and confidential and there’s no need to be embarrassed as our doctors are very experienced and have ‘seen it all before’. Once you have been examined you can decide whether you want the treatment there and then which most people opt for as they just want them gone.
The best genital wart treatments depend on the nature, position and size of warts. Genital wart treatments are much quicker than people expect often only taking 10-15 minutes. The areas are numbed with anaesthetic so that the treatment whether its laser or soft surgery it is completely painless. The warts are completely removed and the areas just heal like a graze over 7-10 days for which we give you some cream to apply. After this, any tiny red marks will fade quickly as the genital skin heals brilliantly and often leaves no marks whatsoever.
Normal sexual relationships can resume 7-10 days after the treatment with no cause for concern to your partner’s health. As the virus is in your body and can take time to be eradicated by your immune system there is a small risk of recurrence in which case the treatments can be repeated. We are also now using a revolutionary microwave device that is the first use of its kind in the UK to immune modulate the wart virus so that the risk of recurrence is reduced by up to 90%.
