Do you have plantar warts?
Swift is the pioneering new microwave therapy device for skin. Plantar warts have long been a frustrating condition and finally there is an answer. Unlike other destructive treatment methods, Swift targets the root cause of the wart, the HPV Virus. Microwave energy is introduced into the skin, heating cells to between 43 and 36 degrees Celsius. This heat initiates an immune cascade which allows the body to detect and attack the HPV virus, ridding the patient of this painful condition.
Summary of Microwave Therapy
Below is a quick summary of the outcomes Swift has delivered to the nearly 40,000 patients that have been treated in the United Kingdom:
- 98% of patients continue daily tasks as normal following the Swift Treatment
- 70% of patients rated the treatment 10/10
- 95% of patients would recommend Swift Treatment to a friend
How does the treatment works?
Treatment protocol includes an average of 3-4 visits with each treatment lasting only 5-10 minutes. During each treatment you will receive multiple 2 second doses of microwave energy, total dosage will vary based on the size and age of the lesion. Visits are spaced 4 weeks apart to coincide with the body’s immune cycle, with follow up scheduled for 12 weeks following the final treatment. Complete resolution is aligned with the strength of your body’s immune response.
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 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 apart depending on the response). Your Podiatrist will be able to discuss this with you.
