Are you fed up with Painful Verrucae's / Plantar Warts? Ashamed to take off your footwear and show your feet? Swift has an 83% resolution rate*. Higher success than any other wart treatment. Your Foot Headquarters have invested in Swift Microwave Technology and are trained Swift users, for the treatment of Verrucae and warts. It is a new treatment designed to use microwaves which heat up the infected tissue, break the barrier around the verrucae and allow the body's immune system to fight off the viral infection. The beauty of the verrucae treatment is that it is quick, no dressings or after care are needed between appointments and there is only a second of pain during treatment, we work hard to distract you at this moment. It is important to remember that it can take several months for the body's immune system to help clear the verrucae with this treatment. Initially a course of 3 swift treatments at 4 week intervals is required, with follow up appointments at 3 and 6 months. The Swift verrucae treatment is available following assessment by our Podiatrists at Your Foot Headquarters, to see if Swift therapy would be the best treatment for you.

What is Swift Therapy?
Swift is medical microwaves technology that is highly effective at resolving warts, Verrucae or papilloma's. A focused microwave signal is emitted into the skin to a predetermined depth to ensure only the wart is treated. A process called Heat Shock occurs within infected skin cells. This causes the wart to release certain proteins into the circulatory system, allowing the immune system to recognise the infection and begin to fight the virus.
Will I feel anything?
The rapid heating of the wart to 42-45 degrees Celsius can cause discomfort, however this lasts for only a second. The temperature range is merely a few degrees warmer than a hot bath, and will not cause any serious tissue damage or scarring.
