We offer the latest in technology, developed in the UK by Swift, for the safe and easy removal of warts and verrucae. It has been licensed for treatment of warts and verrucae in podiatry and dermatology.
How it works
Swift technology delivers microwave technology from a special probe which is applied to the infected area. The treatment lasts around 2 – 3 seconds and you may experience a little discomfort during the procedure – similar to an injection or scratch sensation. In some cases the treated area may be a little sore afterwards, but this will not affect your day to day activities. Usually one treatment is sufficient, however our Podiatry will advise you during your first consultation if a second treatment is likely to be needed. Second treatments usually take place between 14 and 30 days of the initial
Warts and verrucae can exist several millimetres under the skin, which is why they can be difficult to treat with traditional medication applied to the skin as much of the affected area is either left untreated, or becomes sore.
Swift delivers a concentrated and precise dose of energy to the wart or verrucae, as the microwaves travel in to the affected area water molecules collide and create heat energy in the specific area. This destroys all the infected tissue within the controlled area.
In a few seconds the treatment is completed and healing can begin straightaway and healthy tissue quickly replaces the infected area.
