SWIFT VERRUCA TREATMENT

What is Swift verruca treatment?

Swift is the pioneering new microwave therapy for verrucas. Swift technology, developed in the UK, has been licensed for the treatment of verrucas in Podiatry. Swift uses microwave energy which is delivered through a special probe applied to the skin to treat the affected tissue. With treatment times in seconds, Swift provides verruca sufferers with a new, precise and easy way of treating stubborn or recurrent verrucas.

Does it hurt?

Like many treatments for skin lesions a degree of discomfort will be experienced, therefore it is not recommended for children under the age of 12. Discomfort levels vary from person to person but most people undergoing Swift liken it to a sharp hot sensation, lasting 2 - 3 seconds then quickly subsiding. Normally, any discomfort ends as soon as the treatment is finished.  Post procedural discomfort can occur for 2 - 7 days after the treatment.

How many treatments will you need?

Swift Microwave Technology for Verrucae promises a MUCH greater success rate than any previous verruca treatments.  Independent research on treatment with Swift shows 76% of Verrucae are successfully cleared and of these, most clear within 3 treatments. It is therefore likely that no more than a maximum of three treatments will be needed. However, this is dependent on how you respond to treatment and the number of verrucas and a patients general health. In some cases, more than 3 treatments will be required when treating particularly stubborn, large or multiple verrucae.

Can anyone have Swift treatments?

With a few exceptions, almost anyone who has stubborn verrucas can benefit from Swift.
