Blog-Verruca Treatment

Plantar warts present as stubborn and often painful raised legions on the foot. A virus called the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) can lay dormant in the body for years until it decides to come out to the surface as a wart.

WHAT IS SWIFT?

Swift is a new technology, developed in the UK, which has been licensed for the general treatment of skin lesions, warts & Verruca in Podiatry and Dermatology.

Swift uses microwave energy which is delivered through a special probe applied to the skin to treat the affected tissue.

DOES IT HURT?

It is not uncommon for patients to feel a sharp sensation, similar to an injection. Unlike most treatments for verruca, pain felt during the treatment quickly subsides and only lasts a matter of seconds.

This is the most up to date technology in the treatment of verrucas. Swift Verruca Microwave Therapy passes cutting edge microwaves safely through the skins layers to ZAP that Verruca, leaving no burns or scarring without using any toxic chemicals allowing immediate return to full activity.

• No Need To Make Any Scalpel Incisions

• No Need Use Any Needles

• No Painful Burns From Using Toxic Chemicals

• No Need For Taking Time Off Work, Get Treatment During Lunch

• No Need To Stop Sports, Even Swimming.

• No Need For Fiddling With Daily Nuisance Plasters or Creams

There is no need for anaesthetics or pain relief medication.

WHAT CAN I DO AFTER TREATMENT?

There is no down time after treatment. No plasters. And you can return to activity & sport straight away. In some cases the treated area may feel sore but will not prevent you undertaking normal daily activities.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

The protocol for Swift treatment is 3 treatments,  4 weeks apart and a follow up appointment 12 weeks after the final treatment. Treatment success was achieved by 83% of patients following these guidelines. As each individual case is different some patients required further treatment after the 12 week period.

CAN ANYONE RECEIVE THIS TREATMENT?

With a few exceptions, most people with skin lesions would be able to have this treatment. Your Podiatrist will carry out an assessment prior to treatment and be able to advise you on this.
