Falknor’s needling is a treatment method used to remove warts/verrucae from the feet. The area is numbed with local anaesthetic and the wart is punctured with a needle multiple times. The goal is to create micro trauma to the infected tissue, leading to an immune system response that will kill the HPV virus responsible for the wart.
Falknor’s needling is a low-risk and highly effective treatment for stubborn warts that have failed to respond to other treatments such as cryotherapy or salicylic acid.
Overall, Falknor’s needling is a safe and effective treatment option for warts especially on the soles of the feet or around the toes where traditional treatments may be less effective or pose additional risks. Chat with our podiatrists to see if this treatment option is suitable for you.
