Swift Verrucae Therapy
Swift therapy is a new revolutionary medical microwave technology used in the treatment of verrucae. Swift uses microwave therapy which has been scientifically proven to eliminate verrucae. Swift verruca treatment offers local Podiatrists the opportunity to treat verrucae quickly, painlessly, and with high effectiveness.
What is Swift Microwave Therapy?
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?
Swift Treatment 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 but patients have been known to find relief after a single treatment.
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. Swift wart treatment and swift verruca treatment are the most common.
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. Swift have simply revolutionised the technology to be able to help us and make swift verruca treatment available.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does a SWIFT Verruca therapy session last?
The duration of a SWIFT treatment depends on the size and number of verrucae present. Typically, a session will last between 5 to 10 minutes, with no recovery time, so that patients can resume their everyday activities immediately after a session.
Are there any side effects associated with the treatment?
The therapy is generally considered a safe treatment option. However, as with any medical procedure, some possible side effects come with the SWIFT treatment. The potential side effects include blistering, redness, mild discomfort/pain and, in rare cases, infection or scarring.
It is recommended to consult with a podiatrist before you begin your course of treatment, who will assess your situation before proceeding.
Can SWIFT verrucae therapy be used for children?
The treatment can be used on children. However, the suitability is determined by their age, overall health and severity of verrucae.
Does insurance cover SWIFT verrucae treatment?
It is recommended to consult with your insurance provider before proceeding with the treatment to clarify whether they cover SWIFT therapy.
Can I remove verrucae at home with over-the-counter treatments instead of SWIFT verrucae treatment?
Over-the-counter treatments for removing verrucae, such as salicylic acid or cryotherapy kits, are available. However, they are not as effective as SWIFT therapy.
SWIFT Verrucae Therapy offers effective and fast verrucae removal, with a much higher success rate than over-the-counter treatments.
