Shawlands Chiropody & Podiatry is delighted to offer a new, specialist service to customers in our Glasgow clinic – Dry Needling.
Performed under local anaesthetic, once the area to be treated has been completely anaesthetised, a hypodermic needle is used to repeatedly puncture the verruca. This pushes verruca tissue from the top layer of skin (epidermis) through into the deeper layer of skin (dermis), thereby triggering an immune response. The appropriate antibodies are then produced and over the subsequent weeks the verruca undergoes a natural deterioration before ultimately disappearing.
