Swift microwave therapy
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.
Like many treatments for skin lesions, some 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 liken it to a pain similar to an injection or a scratch, lasting 2 – 3 seconds then quickly subsiding.
In some cases the treated area may feel tender, but will not prevent you undertaking normal daily activities. Dressings are not required and there is no need to keep the foot dry or to rest.
This is dependent on how you respond to treatment. In most cases, you may need more than one treatment (these are usually spaced 4 weeks apart depending on the response). Your podiatrist or dermatologist will be able to discuss this with you.
With a few exceptions, most people with skin lesions would be able to have this treatment. Your podiatrist or dermatologist will carry out an assessment prior to treatment and be able to advise you on this.
Swift Verruca treatment costs £100 per session. In most cases, you may need more than one treatment. Please contact us to discuss your individual requirements.
