Genital warts are common with both men and women and are easily treatable so don’t worry.
The main cause for warty lesions on the penis, vagina, groin, pubic and anal areas are from transmission during sex. They can take many years to appear and not necessarily from a recent contact or partner.
If you have a concern about any other sexual health issues NHS sexual health clinics are able to offer discrete rapid full set of screening tests for STD’s (sexually transmitted diseases) or STI’s (sexually transmitted infections). If you do need treatment the NHS can provide creams and some sessions of freezing but these are limited. Privately we are able to offer more comprehensive freezing laser and surgical options for quicker and more effective results.
At Cosmedics we have no waiting lists and can see patients privately very quickly and treatments can be performed on the same day for peace of mind.

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%.
