Cryosurgery is increasingly becoming the favoured option because of better results in most patients. The technique involves creating an immune response by freezing the Verruca to. Temperature of -89ºC. This treatment has an average success rate of 75%. Cryosurgery is possible with most patients but there are exceptions to this. In some instances Cryosurgery is not possible.
