Swift Microwave Verrucae
Advanced Verrucae Treatment
Swift is a new technology, developed
in the UK, which has been licenced 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.
Advanced Swift Technology
Microwave energy rapidly elevates tissue temperature and creates precise, localised cell destruction.
Infected tissue can exist several millimetres below the surface and can often be difficult totreat using traditional methods, resulting inveither untreated tissue or significant damage
Swift delivers a precise, highly controlled energy dose. As microwaves travel into the tissue, water molecules begin colliding and creating localised heat energy – quickly destroying all infected tissue within a predetermined depth.
CAN ANYONE RECEIVE THIS TREATMENT ?
With a few exceptions, most people with skin lesions would be able to have this treatment. We will carry out an assessment prior to treatment and be able to advise you on this.
DOES IT HURT ?
Like many treatments for skin lesions, some minor discomfort may be experienced. Before treatment your podiatrist or dermatologist may decide to reduce the lesion with a blade. Pain levels vary from person to person but most people undergoing Swift likenit to a pain similar to an injection or a scratch, lasting 2 – 3 seconds then quickly subsiding.
WHAT CAN I DO AFTER TREATMENT ?
In some cases the treated area may feel sore but will not 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 need
more than one treatment (these can be from 14 days to over a month part depending on the response). Your Podiatrist or Dermatologist will be able to discuss this with you.
