Our Genital Wart Treatments

A consultation is required before proceeding with any treatment option (not included in the cost of treatment/tests/vaccine).

HPV-Wart Consultation: £50

Extended HPV-Wart Consultation: £125 (for same day hyfrecation treatment)

1. Hyfrecation

  • Effectiveness: 94-100%
  • Length of treatment: 1-2 visits (for most patients)
  • Price: from £250

Often called ‘Instant Wart Removal’, hyfrecation is a highly effective procedure that treats your genital warts by carefully and safely burning them off using electrocautery. Most of our patients are cleared of their warts in one session.


Please request an Extended HPV-Wart Consultation (1-hour long) if you would like the procedure immediately after the consultation. Only available in Birmingham.

2. Cryotherapy

  • Effectiveness: 44-75%
  • Length of treatment: 6-10 visits (appointments are one week apart)
  • Price: £100/weekly-session

The temperature of your genital warts are lowered to -170 degrees C, in a controlled manner. With repeated freezing and thawing the cells that produce the warts are killed. Warts may shrink and shrivel over days and weeks, and may finally disappear.

  

Some local discomfort and burning is occasionally felt during and for few hours after the treatment.

3. Local Creams

  • Effectiveness: 60-70%
  • Length of treatment: 4-16 weeks
  • We issue a private prescription

We will ask you to apply the cream yourself on your warts. You will need to apply the box of creams for 4-16 weeks for the full effect to take place.

This treatment is not recommended during pregnancy or if you’re planning to conceive.

Do nothing

Some genital warts may disappear by themsleves within 12 months of having them. This means it can be very important to know whether a genital wart is new or old (which can be helped by taking a detailed medical & sexual history) and keeping a close eye on your genital area.

Step 2: Discuss various treatment options.

Step 3: Proceed with the treatment

Step 4: Follow-Up with an appointment in 2 weeks

Areas treated

For men: pubic, peri-anal, anal, scrotal & penile warts.

For women: pubic, peri-anal, anal, vulval, vaginal & introital warts.

Warts and similar lesions anywhere on the body (including face, around eyes, neck & thighs) can be treated.

Aftercare

We will offer you a follow-up appointment to make sure that your lesions have healed well and answer any remaining questions that you may have.

This is done within 2 weeks after your procedure and is included in the cost of your treatment (for Hyfrecation only).

FAQs on Genital Wart Removal

Which treatment is for me?

The right treatment option can be discussed during your consultation (which is carried out before any treatment is given).

Our Hyfrecation treatment is especially loved by those who have tried various methods over months and years, at a great cost of time and money, without the desired results.

Can I get treatment on the same appointment?

If you have booked an hour-long appointment, then we can proceed with the Hyfrecation procedure in the same appoinment, if it is safe to do so.

Can I get these treatments from my GP or the NHS?

Please check with your local GP/sexual health clinic for further information.

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.

Will my warts come back?

Like with all wart treatments, your warts may come back. We will give you advice on measures you can take to prevent (or slow down) the regrowth of your warts.

Do I need a referral letter from my GP?

No. You can book directly with us.
