When my Podiatrist, Lauren Pete recommended that I have laser treatment at the Laser Nail Clinic, I agreed to try it but had to overcome my initial fear of the unknown. At my first appointment, I was a bit nervous and had all kinds of questions like… was it going to hurt? what would the effect of it be? and most importantly, would it make the skin virus on the soles of my feet go away? I’d never had verrucas or laser treatment before.
Prior to having treatment at the Laser Nail Clinic, I’d tried all kinds of other remedies, but nothing worked, in fact, the more different kinds of treatments I tried, the more the verruca virus spread.
Verruca pain is unreal – you’d never think something that started out looking so small, could cause such agony. For months, it was like walking on splinters of shattered glass, which made my everyday life and activities, a real mission.
My first Laser treatment experience was absolutely fine and my feet immediately felt an improvement. Finally, there was some relief and my journey to recovery had begun. During treatment, I hardly noticed the laser – sometimes my skin felt a tiny bit hot and that would only last for a second or two.
After several more treatments, the verrucas stopped growing and started to appear and feel more shallow. Eventually the pain became less and less. Today, I can walk flat on my feet, without the same agony of the verrucas that I once felt and the appearance of my skin shows very little sign of ever having the virus at all.
Thank you so much Lauren and John at the Laser Nail Clinic, for everything you’ve done to give me back my quality of life! I will be forever grateful for all your help. With great appreciation.
