Wart / and mole removal

Warts are noncancerous growths that emerge on the skin's surface. Long dubbed as unsightly blemishes, warts are essentially an overgrowth of layers of skin forming small, coarse patches. The culprit behind these aberrations is the human papillomavirus (HPV), though warts pose little danger to overall health and can often be left untreated without issue.
 Despite their benign nature, warts can have a psychological impact, denting one's self-confidence, especially when they crop up on more visible areas such as the hands, fingers, or arms. They can interfere with daily life, snagging on clothes and jewellery, causing discomfort or even pain. Warts can manifest anywhere on the body and come in a myriad of forms. Take Verrucas, for instance, which are essentially warts on the feet, commonly contracted around communal showers and pools due to the spread of the HPV in warm, moist environments.

 Contagiously enough, both warts and verrucas can hop from person to person or spread to other parts of the individual's body upon contact. Indeed, it's quite common for people—around 10% at some juncture in their lives, particularly in childhood or adolescence—to experience warts.

One might acquire them from shared facilities or through direct touch.Variety abounds in the world of warts; some are tiny raised bumps, and others can sprawl out several centimetres wide. Their irregular sizes mean they might catch and tear on fabric or get entangled with personal accessories.
Though the thought of warts may be troubling, rest assured they can be dealt with quite straightforwardly. There exists an array of effective treatments for wart removal, offering relief to those who find them bothersome.

Wart removal techniques


Cryotherapy is a medical procedure that involves the use of extremely cold temperatures for therapeutic purposes. It is particularly effective in removing warts and treating other skin conditions such as skin tags by freezing them off the surface of the skin.
While there are various techniques to apply cryotherapy, the application of liquid nitrogen is the most widely adopted approach.Liquid nitrogen, which becomes a liquid at very low temperatures, is notably cold – reaching temperatures of about −196 °C or −320 °F. Nitrogen, which constitutes over 75% of the Earth's atmosphere, exists in a gaseous form under warmer conditions.
When subjected to these extreme temperatures, it transitions to a liquid state and must be stored and transported in specially designed chemical flasks to ensure safety and preserve its low temperature.

How cryotherapy is used on the skin

Cryotherapy employs intensely cold temperatures for the specific purpose of removing warts, skin tags, and other lesions by essentially 'freezing' them away. It is chiefly utilised for the eradication of benign skin anomalies, such as viral warts, patches of skin damaged by the sun known as actinic keratoses, and other minor skin lesions. Additionally, cryotherapy is utilized in the treatment of certain skin conditions related to skin cancers, including Bowen's disease, superficial cell carcinoma, and some types of non-melanoma skin cancers.

What happens during Cryotherapy treatment?

A Cryotherapy session is conducted at a scheduled time without the need for clinical admission, allowing the patient to receive treatment during a single consultation. This procedure does not demand any special preparation and can be performed by either a clinician or a nurse.In the process of cryotherapy, liquid nitrogen is precisely applied to the skin issue or lesion using specific instruments. These may range from a metallic gun or probe to a more refined, pen-like apparatus for smaller areas, and sometimes, a cotton bud might be used for application, depending on the lesion's size and treatment location.The duration of the actual cryotherapy is brief, taking only a few seconds to complete, and generally does not require a local anesthetic. The length of treatment can vary based on the lesion's dimensions, such as with warts, but it is typically very quick.Post-treatment, the treated area turns white and feels frozen, gradually warming back to the usual skin temperature after a short while. At this point, the medical professional will assess the treatment's effectiveness, determining if additional freezing sessions are necessary or if a single application was sufficient. Any further sessions needed are carried out immediately following the initial treatment.After undergoing cryotherapy, a scab will develop over the treated spot. This scab naturally heals and falls off within about two weeks, though healing might take slightly longer for treatments on the legs. Once the scab has cleared, the skin usually restores to its standard appearance, though there can be instances, particularly on the legs, where some scarring or discoloration endures.Wart responses to cryotherapy vary; many can be completely removed in one session, while some might need additional treatments. You can discuss the potential need for further sessions with your clinician after your first treatment.

Post-treatment care

Your medical professional will provide you with instructions on how to care for the cryotherapy-treated area post-procedure. This typically involves a non-medical routine where you will need to keep the treated spot dry until a scab forms. You might also be instructed to apply a moisturiser, likely petroleum jelly.
If the scab gets wet, you should gently dab it dry using soft tissue, being careful not to rub or cause irritation to the treatment area.For the best possible healing process and to minimize the risk of scarring, you must resist the temptation to pick or scratch at the scab. Doing so not only heightens the likelihood of scarring but also significantly increases the risk of potential infection.
 While it's not typical to require a bandage or dressing, some treated areas may benefit from this added layer of protection, especially if the area is prone to friction against clothing or other parts of your body.

Are there any side effects?

Immediately post-treatment:

  • There may be some pain or discomfort – cryotherapyis a non-invasive treatment; however, some lesions may require deep freezing to make sure that they have been treated properly. It may increase any discomfort felt during the treatment and for some time thereafter, although this can depend on the patient. Paracetamol may be taken for the first 24 hours following the treatment, while you may alsotake may relieve that discomfort. You may wish totake an analgesic an hour before your treatment to reduce discomfort.
  • Swelling and redness – a normal, natural response to cryotherapy. Any swelling and redness will settle and return to normal within a few days and your clinician may provide a steroid ointment to boost recovery. Sometimes, the treated area can ooze and cryotherapy undertaken in the eye region may induce puffiness in the lower lids. This will return to normal within a few days.
  • Blistering – Blisters is a normal side effect of cryotherapy. Blisters can often be a part of the healing process and form before the scabs eventually replace them. Blistering may depend on the individual, rather than the treatment or the lesion that is being treated. Blisters are a normal part of the healing process and should be tolerated. A blister may fill with blood; however, this is harmless. If a blister becomes extremely painful, it may help to alleviate the pressure by applying a sterile needle. Please seek medical advice before attempting this.
  • Infection – While unlikely, infection may occur, as with any treatment or procedure. It will likely render the treatment area more painful and you may experience pus. Please consult your clinician for advice and possible antibiotic medication.

Following initial healing:

  • Scarring – Depending on the lesion and amount of treatment required, scarring may form. However, this is not a common side effect of the treatment.
  • Pigmentation changes – Skin in and around the treatment area can change in colour, becoming wither lighter or darker. This can be more prevalent in people of colour. While it may lessen over time, it may remain.
  • Numbness – When freezing, it may be possible for the treatment to touch a superficial nerve. It may lead to numbness in the area of skin around the nerve, but normal feeling will return in a few months.
  • You may only require one treatment; however, it may not be totally effective. You may need to undertake further different treatment. The wart may also, on occasion, return.

Different types of warts


These atypical warts, which manifest on the neck and face, particularly around the eyelids, neck, and lips, bear a resemblance to the branches or twigs of a tree. They are slender and match the color of the skin, and they have a tendency to grow swiftly and persistently. Being located on such prominent areas of the body, they can cause significant embarrassment for the affected individual. Without proper treatment, filiform warts can spread rapidly and become more severe.Nonetheless, filiform warts are highly treatable and can typically be eliminated in a single session.


Seborrheic warts are not caused by the HPV virus. Rather, they are a low-level, thick build-up of epidermal cells that have a rough surface. They can range in colour, from skin colour to black and can vary widely in size and surface area. Commonly associated with the aging process, seborrheic warts as also known as senile warts. Most commonly found on the face, they can also form on the torso and can form on clumps or join colour. Left untreated, they become more integrated into the skin, as they penetrate the skin more deeply through fibrous tendrils. Treatment can be very effective and the skin recovers well. As with blood spots and age spots, we recommend swift treatment of Seborrheic warts.


Plane wart removal is very straightforward and sees the removal of small, slightly raised warts. Most usually found on the face and the back of the hands, plane warts are skin or brown coloured warts and are most common in children and adolescents.


Cauliflower-like in appearance, common warts are raised, rough growths which are most often found on the backs of hands, fingers, toes and on knees. They may have a set of black dots, called seeds. Seeds are viral clotted blood vessels which can be responsible for the spreading of warts by touch. Children, young adults and those with a weakened immune system are more prone to common warts. Often disappearing of their own accord, People prefer to have them removed for cosmetic reasons or to improve their self-esteem. Common wart removal may require more than one treatment.


Periungual warts grown under or around the nail. While forming, they are tiny raised bumps that cannot be seen, but patients can soon notice rough-looking bumps with irregular edges. Periungual warts can appear in groups and can generate varying degrees of pressure on the nail. Untreated, they can become painful or grow large enough to make the nail come away from the nail bed. Although uncommon, periungual warts should be treated to prevent permanent nail damage or scarring. More than one treatment might be required to remove a perifungal wart. Although this is uncommon, it can happen, and is likely to cause permanent nail damage and scarring. More than one treatment session may be required.

If you like to take care of your skin, you might find that there are some things that you can’t – and shouldn’t – try to scrub or exfoliate away.

Although Moles are a normal part of our skin, they can have a dramatic impact on self esteem and can make you feel self-conscious. You may have a mole that is simply in the wrong place for you and it is really getting you down. You can try to cover it up with make-up, but that just makes you feel even more conspicuous and obvious. For such a small thing, it can cause a lot of angst.

You might also have a mole that is catching on your clothes on a daily basis. It can become uncomfortable and you may long to simply pull on a jumper without that sudden pinch of pain as the material hits your mole. The same applies to shaving. Moles do need some extra tender loving care and your patience might be wearing thin.

Have you ever thought of getting rid of your troublesome mole altogether?

Mole removal takes just one treatment and is a pain-free procedure that gives instant results. Mole removal treatment doesn’t require an incision or stitching and so scarring is negligible. With one quick and simple procedure to full healing within 6 weeks, mole removal could have you looking and feeling better in weeks.

Your Mole Removal Consultation

At Manchester Wart Removal, we will spend time talking with you before the procedure and a trained, qualified nurse will examine the mole. Moles can appear anywhere on the skin but are most frequently found on the arms, face and neck.

Your nurse will check your mole and look for even, brown pigmentation and a regular outline. Facial moles tend to be lighter in colour and less heavily pigmented. They may have hairs and are most often benign.

If your nurse feels for any reason that your mole requires further examination, we will use our state-of-the-art skin scanner to examine your mole in greater detail. Following your mole examination, we will then discuss the most appropriate method of removal, making sure that you are comfortable with the treatment before proceeding.

If your nurse identifies a clinical need for further investigation into your mole, it can be excised and sent for clinical analysis.

Please feel free to speak to our Manchester Wart Removal Team, where we are happy to help with any questions or queries you have.

Mole Removal methods

  • Radio Frequency Mole Removal – The most common form of mole removal and used to remove moles that protrude above the skin’s surface. A radiosurgery electrode loop gently removes the mole, layer by layer, from the surface of the skin.
  • Laser Mole Removal: An advanced laser system that removes birthmarks or moles [compound naevi] from the face, with superb cosmetic results and negligible scarring.
  • Cryotherapy Mole Removal: A more traditional treatment that uses liquid nitrogen remove moles by freezing. Liquid nitrogen kills cell tissue and can be a laborious and uncomfortable way to remove moles. You may require multiple treatments and is not our recommended option.

Following Treatment

Mole removal treatment requires little healing. While the skin’s surface may be slightly elevated or lower than the skin’s surface, this does even out in time. You may find that moles regain some of their pre-treatment pigmentation, but this is a rare occurrence. We do ask that patients use SP30 sunblock after treatment.

Harmless moles

We take mole health very seriously. Happily, most moles are harmless and they are removed purely for cosmetic reasons and to increase self-esteem. Other moles may get in the way of everyday life or sporting and leisure activities.

It is always best practice to consult your doctor if you have any concern whatsoever about a mole.

Moles can sometimes be confused with warts. Warts tend to develop on the hands or feet and are small, rough bumps. Warts are non-cancerous, but they can be thick and unsightly. Caused by HPV [human papilloma virus], warts tend to strike in childhood and the teenage years, often lessening in adults. The HPV virus causes an abundance of a protein, known as keratin, to develop on the epidermis, or top layer of skin. Warts can vary in thickness and may appear as single warts or in small groups. Verrucas are warts that appear on the soles of the feet. Most people will experience a wart or verruca at some stage and, although harmless, they can be an irritation
