Verruca or warts are skin lesions that mostly develop on the hand or plantar foot. (There are other types of verruca, however this is written with hand and foot warts in mind). They are produced by a virus called a human papilloma virus (HPV). 

Verruca can be painful or cause distress by being unsightly, and they can also be difficult to treat with standard treatments. Most over the counter products are not particularly effective. 



SWIFT therapy for verruca uses microwaves to heat the tissue just above normal temperature.  Swift is a UK researched and produced technology introduced and licensed for use for verrucae in 2016.  

 What are the benefits of SWIFT treatment ?

Consistency - SWIFT THERAPY  consistently cures your verrucae with a high cure rate

Cleanliness - no more dressings or toxic chemicals, and you can go back to all your activities on the same day

Convenience - SWIFT therapy only takes a few minutes for each treatment 

Confidence - in the knowledge that your verruca(e) will be gone for good


Does it hurt?

There is a discomfort for a couple of seconds, however most patients can tolerate this quite easily. We can adjust the settings if you are very anxious however.

Is it safe?

microwave treatment has been used safely over the last thirty years in cancer treatment. We are also surrounded by microwaves daily as mobile phones, blue tooth technology and kitchen appliances all use microwaves. 

The very low energy used in the SWIFT system is only enough to agitate the water molecules, and does not carry enough energy to alter DNA.
