Swift Verrucae Therapy
Swift microwave therapy is a revolutionary new treatment for verrucae. Swift uses microwave therapy which has been scientifically proven to eliminate verrucae. Swift Microwave Therapy offers local Podiatrists the opportunity to treat verrucae quickly, painlessly, and with high effectiveness.
What is Swift
Swift is a new technology that uses microwave energy to treat skin lesions. Originally developed in the UK and licenced for general use in Podiatry and Dermatology, Swift uses microwave energy which is delivered through a special probe applied to the skin to treat the affected tissue.
Infected tissue can exist several Millimeters below the skin and can be difficult to treat using traditional methods resulting in untreated tissue or further damage.
Swift delivers a precice energy dose. Microwaves travel quickly into the tissue causing localised heating and cell destruction within a pre determined depth.
In Just seconds the treatment is complete and the healing cascade begins immediately. Treated tissue is quickly replaced repaired and regenerated.
Does it hurt?
Treatments for skin lesions like verrucas are sometimes uncomfortable, but effective. Your podiatrist may remove some of the hard skin and clear the wart/verrucae with an antimicrobial solution. The most common side effect is a stinging sensation, but it’s only temporary. Pain levels vary from person to person but most people undergoing Swift liken it to a pain similar to an injection or a scratch, lasting 1 second then quickly subsiding.
After the treatment, you may feel some discomfort but this should not prevent you from undertaking normal daily activities. If soreness or redness persists or increases over the next 24-48 hours, please contact our practice so we can ensure you are being cared for appropriately. We look forward to seeing you on your next visit!
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
For the treatment to be most effective, patients need to respond well, meaning they have a positive reaction to the treatment. A Podiatrist will assess this and prescribe another 1-3 treatments if deemed necessary. Recent research suggests that up to 70% of patients see relief after 3 treatments.
Who Can Recieve This Treatment?
Almost anyone with skin lesions could have this treatment, with a few exceptions. Your podiatrist will carry out an assessment to see whether you are eligible for the treatment.
Is It Safe?
Microwaves are a vital part of our day-to-day lives. They can be found in a variety of places, including your kitchen and even your phone. Most wifi uses microwaves, and mobile phones, Bluetooth, and cordless phones all rely on microwaves to send data over short distances. In addition, most satellite communications systems (including GPS) rely on microwaves. We interact with microwaves in many ways every day.
