SWIFT microwave technology – the new way to destroy verrucae!
If you’ve tried acids, freeze spray, duct tape etc and you are still struggling to shift your verrucae then swift is the treatment for you.
What Is A Verruca?
Verrucae are plantar warts that commonly occur on the soles of the feet or around the toe area. They are caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) which is highly contagious through direct person to person contact. There are various forms of HPV which all relate to various parts of the human body.
What Can I Expect?
Before your treatment, your podiatrist may remove some of the overlying hard skin on the verruca. The Swift probe is held in contact with the skin, and the treatment lasts approximately 2 seconds. This is then repeated by your clinician multiple times to until the desired energy is delivered to the site. Pain levels vary from patient to patient, but most people liken the sensation to a pain similar to an injection or scratch lasting 2 – 3 seconds then quickly subsiding. There is no need for an anaesthetic and or for a dressing.
What Happens After the Treatment?
Most people leave pain free without the need for dressings. In some cases the area may feel tender, but will not prevent you from undertaking normal daily activities.
How Many Treatments will I Need?
This is very individual and can’t be predicted. Everyone’s response is different, but most cases will require three treatments. In some cases, you may need more than three sessions (these are usually 4 weeks apart depending on the response). Your podiatrist will discuss this with you and devise the best plan.
How much does the treatment cost?
Each single treatment with Swift costs £150.00 or the recommended course of 3 treatments, if paid together is £400. If you require more than three treatments, the subsequent treatments are £100.
