Falknor's needling procedure is an innovative and effective treatment for verruca. It's a form of soft tissue therapy which is intended to break down the verruca and create a controlled inflammatory response which, in turn, stimulates the body's immune system to recognise the virus and destroy it.
Needling is different from most other treatment modalities (such as caustics which can entail dozens of applications to be effective) as it only requires one or occasionally two applications, making this an ideal treatment for busy people.
It works by puncturing the verruca with an empty sterile needle many times, This pushes the the viral particles directly to the fatty tissue beneath the skin where the body is rich in immune regulators. Here, the immune system can recognise and destroy the virus. The procedure is carried out painlessly under local anaesthetic and only mild soreness the following day has been reported by a few patients, although the majority of patients feel no discomfort at all following treatment.
