If you're still unsure, or what you need to know isn't covered here, then please contact us and we'll answer any questions.

Do you treat/remove verrucas?

Verucca are caused by a viral infection and cannot be removed, only going when they are ready. During the treatment the verruca category is identified, overlying skin is removed to help relieve pain. A cryogenic agent may be used to freeze the verucca or a mild caustic agent applied to stimulate the body's own immune reaction. Home treatment may be needed to reduce repeated visits.

I'm embarrassed about my feet. Should I be?

We're trained to work with feet and enjoy working with feet that need our help. We've dealt with feet that have all manner of problems, shapes and sizes. If your feet are a bit smelly rest assured we soak your feet at the beginning of the treatment, which is also a really relaxing break in your day.
