SWIFT is a revolutionary system which uses microwave therapy to stimulate an immune response and fight verrucas.
Anyone with a verruca who wants to try the most effective treatment available to eradicate the infection. One of the great things about SWIFT is that even if you have multiple verruca on one or both feet, only the largest verruca needs to be treated. The treatment does not need to be applied to each verruca individually, this is because if the treatment works it will stimulate a response to clear the viral infection which will clear all the verruca.
SWIFT involves the application of microwave therapy directly to the verruca through. A generator leads to a probe which is applied to the verruca.
An average of 3-4 treatments are required, treatment should be performed around four weeks apart, although some may require more/less treatments.
There is no local anesthetic needed prior to SWIFT, and patients aren't required to apply any home treatments or interventions in between appointments - just attend for the SWIFT treatments. There are no dressings applied post treatment and there will be no wounds or lesions around the verruca.
