We offer medical treatment of genital warts of all shapes & locations in men and women.
Discreet Billing & Location
We conduct ourselves professionally and ensure your discretion at every stage.
What methods of treatment are available?
Whilst numerous methods of genital wart removal exist, we only utilise Hyfrecation treatment at our clinic due to it’s effectiveness.
What areas can you treat?
As a general rule of thumb, if we can feel or see your genital warts, we can treat them.
However, like all medical procedures, this is subject to clinical assessment.

How does it work?
Doctor appointments are approx. 30-45 minutes long. This is enough time for most patients to have the consultation + receive treatment in the same appointment (saving another visit), but this entirely depends on how long is required on the consultation part of the appointment and whether it is safe to proceed with the treatment.
Patients with a larger set of warts may need an additional appointment (this will be included in the cost of the overall treatment).
1. Assess Warts
We must confirm the diagnosis of genital warts and make sure they are safe for treatment.
We will then give you a quote for the overall cost of the treatment.
You can also receive a quote online here.
2. Discuss Treatments
We will then discuss any questions you may have about HPV, Genital warts and the treatment options (including not treating).
If there sufficient time left in your appointment, we will proceed to remove your warts.
3. Offer Procedure
We will apply some local anaesthetic to numb the area. Once you are comfortable, we will then proceed to remove your warts using Hyfrecation (learn more).
After your procedure, we will offer you an after-care pack with advice and wipes to keep the treated area clean.
Do I need a consultation?
We understand that some you may have been to your GP or GUM clinic for an examination (and possible diagnosis) and/or treatment.
However, before we offer any treatments it is essential that we have a thorough understanding of your medical health.
A few of these reasons include:
Confirming that you do in fact have genital warts, as we often see patients who have been told they have warts but in fact do not.
Ensuring that you do not have warts in areas which you have not noticed – e.g. we see patients who have their pubic warts diagnosed, but scrotal warts missed. This can mean you receive treatment for one area of the
Discuss how you can prevent getting genital warts again.
Can I get treatment in the same appointment?
Doctor appointments are approx. 30-45 minutes long.
This is enough time for most patients to have the consultation + receive treatment in the same appointment (saving another visit).
However, this entirely depends on how long is required on the consultation part of the appointment and whether it is safe to proceed with the treatment.
I am pregnant. Can I still get treatment?
We can offer you the above treatments during pregnancy, however the size and location of the warts can affect the treatment options suitable.
It is also important to note that warts recede soon after delivery, therefore you may wish to wait until after delivery.
Can my genital warts come back?
Genital warts can recur after treatment because the treatment only eradicates the symptoms of HPV, but not the HPV infection itself.
There is no cure for the HPV infection, you will still have the infection in your body despite any treatment you may have had for genital warts. The main way of clearing the infection is via a natural process, although it can be a chronic and long lasting infection for others.
Do I need a referral letter from my GP?
No. You can book directly with us.
