Warts are one of the most common skin conditions seen at City Dermatology Clinic. They can be found commonly growing on the hands, feet and groin areas. They are highly contagious and we encourage people who suffer from these to book a consultation with one of our experienced doctors for treatment or possible removal.
Surgical removal is the most effective treatment out there for the removal of warts, however we also provide cryotherapy (freezing). Please note freezing can require multiple sessions, whereas surgical removal is usually just the one session. For warts which are stubborn and unlikely to be cleared by cryotherapy or may require several sessions of cryotherapy, we will inform you about this during the consultation and may recommend a surgical removal. We recognise that all patients are different and depending on the location, size of wart and other factors we will provide you with tailored advice during the consultation.
We also provide a same day ‘see and treat’ service and allocate enough time should you wish to have both the consultation and procedure without waiting. All treatments and procedures performed are subject to consultation.
During the pre and post-operation consultation, Mr. Din was very supportive, extremely competent, and friendly. I am very happy about the results of my surgery, and I would highly recommend Mr. Din and his amazing team.

I found him as well mannered, listened to my reasons for seeing him, explained clearly his line of treatment, gave me enough time and managed my treatment in an excellent way; will always recommend him to others.

Doctor consultation is £100. We allocate enough time should you wish to have the procedure done straight after the consultation. Please note that all prices are dependent upon the size and location and are subject to a consultation.
A free follow-up following the procedure just to check and make sure everything has healed up nicely. All dressings required will be provided and advice is given on when to change them.
If there’s something you’re not sure about following the procedure, you can always come back to be seen by a doctor at no additional charge. Alternatively, if safe to do so your doctor can provide remote advice regarding the healing stage.
Removal of stitches service (if not dissolvable stitches). For biopsy results, you’ll be contacted by the team and the report will be sent to you as soon as we receive it. A GP letter is available should you request one.
Warts are highly contagious non-cancerous skin growths that appear on your body from the HPV virus transmitted through touch. They’re usually harmless and commonly are found on your groin, hands and feet.
Warts are highly common and are more likely to occur in children and teenagers, as opposed to adults. They take around 2-6 months to develop and appear as small skin coloured, pink or brown bumps on your skin.
A wart removal can take between 30-60 minutes based on the size and area of your wart. If time permits within your schedule, you can have your wart removed on the same day as your consultation.
Wart removals at City Dermatology Clinic are performed by proficient cosmetic surgeons and dermatologists, ensuring an effective and painless procedure. In addition to their highly skilled techniques, they use a local anaesthetic to ensure you don’t feel anything during the procedure.
You will likely be able to undergo topical removal of warts if you’re pregnant; however, it’s best to mention this at time of booking. At City Dermatology Clinic we do treat pregnant patients as well.
Usually, it takes 1-2 weeks for your skin to heal fully from the removal of your wart. During this time, we will provide a free follow up, where a cosmetic doctor will review your skin to ensure the area is fully healed.
There may be some slightly mild discomfort and redness the following day; however, it will quickly go away. If you have any concerns, we will discuss them with you in your complimentary follow-up.
You can contact us by phone, email, message, or simply fill out the ‘Callback Request’ form and we will call you back at your chosen convenient time. We look forward to taking care of you.
