Swift Verruca Treatment

Swift Verruca Treatment

What is Swift®?

Swift is a new technology, developed in the UK, which has been licensed for the general treatment of skin lesions 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 in rare cases is there any prolonged pain. Before treatment your Podiatrist or Dermatologist may lightly reduce your lesion with a blade (debride).

What can I do after treatment?

In some cases the treated area may feel sore but will not usually prevent you undertaking normal daily activities.

How many treatments will I need?

This is dependent on how you respond to treatment. In some cases, you may require a course of treatment (treatment regime is determined by your clinician and your Podiatrist will be able to discuss this with you).

Can anyone receive this treatment?

With a few exceptions, most people with skin lesions would be able to have this treatment. Swift is not recommended for use on diabetic patients, patients with implanted electronic devices or electrodes or for use close to metallic objects (i.e. metal foot implants, jewellery etc).

All information read here is based on Patient Information Sheets created by trained, registered Clinicians who are experienced with the product and treatment protocol – Before undergoing treatment ensure your Podiatrist or Dermatologist is registered and has given you the full range of options available.
