WHAT IS SWIFT®?
Swift is a new technology, developed in the UK, which has been licenced for the general treatment of verrucae in Podiatry.
Swift uses microwave energy which is delivered through a special probe applied to the skin to treat the affected tissue.
DOES IT HURT?
Like many treatments for skin lesions, some minor discomfort may be experienced. Before treatment your podiatrist 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.
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 DO I NEED?
This will depend on how you respond to treatment. In most cases three treatments with four weeks between each treatment are recommended.
Your Podiatrist will discuss this with you.
CAN ANYONE HAVE THIS TREATMENT?
With a few exceptions, most people with skin lesions would be able to have this treatment. Your Podiatrist will carry out an assessment prior to treatment and be able to advise you on this.
