Warts & Verrucae are no longer a pain to treat
They used to be difficult to treat, persistent, and unsightly. Some can persevere for years, growing deeper and impacting more and more on daily activities.
Around 10% of the population have a verruca. Most people have tried some form of treatment… but it hasn’t worked.
The good news? Swift Microwave Therapy is a scientifically proven solution that attacks the verruca & wart virus at its heart.
Swift is the pioneering new microwave therapy for skin. With treatment times in seconds, Swift provides Podiatrists and Dermatologists with a new, precise and easy way of treating soft tissue lesions.
What is 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.What Causes Verrucae & Warts?
The human papilloma virus or HPV causes warts & verrucae.This virus effectively hides it's existence from the body’s immune system by creating a microenvironment in the skin that encourages the survival and reproduction of the virus.
There is clinical evidence that shows the longer the infection has persisted, the worse the cure rate. Verrucae that present on the feet are particularly difficult to resolve. The statistics tell us that 42% of verrucae will disappear within 6 months, but if the condition persists for longer than 6 months, the chances of the virus clearing up without treatment drops to just 8%.
While warts and verrucae are not life threatening, they do cause pain that can limit activities, and they can spread across the hands, feet, and to other areas of the body. This leaves many long-standing sufferers in the UK with limited options.Liquid nitrogen & acid treatments have shown poor cure rates of only 14% in some studies. Surgical hot lasers have similarly poor cure rates with the added risk of causing blistering & lasting pain, whilst also risking permanent scarring.
The aim of all these traditional treatments is to destroy the wart or verruca. From a clinical research perspective, all of these methods show low efficacy in clinical studies and trials.
Why is Swift Microwave Therapy different?
The key to effectively treating verrucae & warts is to trigger the body’s own immune response, rather than simply destroying the infected tissue. Swift Microwave Therapy causes an immune response that not only kills the virus in the wart or verruca, but also the virus particles lying dormant in surrounding skin. Meaning a vastly more effective cure rate. Independent clinical research has shown that microwave verruca treatment with Swift activates immune signalling pathways in the body, alerting the immune system to the presence of the verruca and clearing the infected tissue. This independent clinical research was published in the European Journal of Dermatology, showing an effective cure rate of 75.9% in persistent, chronic verrucae in just 3 treatments."
