All You Need to Know about Verrutop Verrucae Treatment for Children & Adults at Deva Podiatry Foot Health Clinic Chester
Deva Podiatry Foot Health Clinic Chester are pleased to announce the introduction of an innovative new therapeutic treatment for verrucae- VERRUTOP ©
A treatment that is applied in clinic, by our professional lead podiatrist to ADULTS and CHILDREN as young as 6 years of age.
How Does Verrutop © Work?
Verrutop © acts by denaturing the verruca proteins through a caustic effect ( mummification).
Verrutop © causes a reaction and generates nitrites by denaturing viral proteins. Protein degradation is accelerated by salt compounds contained in the verrutop © formulation .
Verrutop © is safe and under clinic conditions its application is straight forward. Following application it does not interfere with a patients daily routine.
Verrutop © is supplied in a sealed glass ampoule containing 0.1ml of Verrutop © Complex. Your podiatrist will break the ampoule before administering it to the affected area. This area will have been prepared for treatment with specialist sterilised podiatry instruments.
One ampoule contains sufficient product to apply to 2 to 3 medium sized verrucae.When a patient presents with clusters of verrucae it may be necessary for additional ampoules to be required. In such an instance the patient will be advised of this. See pricing structure below.
