Verruca And Wart Microwave Therapy (Swift)

One highly effective treatment for verrucas and warts is Microwave Therapy. We use Swift Microwave Therapy as it offers a fast, non-invasive verruca treatment that provides rapid relief for painful and unsightly issues.

What is Swift®?

Swift is a new technology, developed in the UK, which has been licenced for the treatment of Verrucas and warts in the hands by podiatrists.

Swift uses microwave energy which is delivered through a special probe applied to the skin to treat the affected tissue. Multiple verrucas and even warts can be treated at a single session. The treatment is quick, efficient and no anaesthetic or dressings are needed.

No Dressings

Alternative Verruca Treatments

We also offer verruca needling as an alternate form of treatment to Microwave Therapy. Verruca needling involves using a small needle to puncture warts and verrucas. The procedure causes them to bleed, which triggers the body’s natural immune system so the problem resolves itself. Due to the nature of the treatment it does involve bandages, which will need to be redressed by the patient for the ten days following the procedure.

Laser Therapy

Another highly effective treatment we utilise at Northwich Foot Clinic is laser therapy. This ingeniuos method of treating verrucae is particularly good for children as it is pain-free and much less unsettling for them than other options.

What Our Patients Think

Absolutely 1st class from my phone call this morning to my treatment from Claire this afternoon. I cannot recommend them enough!!!

JANE BLACKBURN

Before physio I couldn’t manage a 4m run. Post physio I’m clocking 15m.
I have the confidence to finish the marathon. I’ve entered now; not only that but I can stand up and sit down without wincing which is always a bonus!
Worth every penny and I won’t hesitate in returning in the future if needed.

FAQs

Verrucas that go untreated will usually clear on their own, however, it can take a prolonged period of time. While your body is fighting the infection causing the verruca you may experience pain, discomfort and embarrassment, particularly if swimming.
While verrucae can clear up on their own if left untreated, they may also continue to grow. As they grow they cause more pressure when standing. Once a verruca reaches a centimetre wide, with a border or cover of hard skin, they can become painful as standing will force the verruca into your foot.
Warts are caused by a viral infection that causes the development of small lumps on the skin. Verrucas are a form of wart that is caused by the same virus. While warts can appear all over the body, verrucas specifically develop on the soles of the feet. Most people experience warts at some point during their lives.

Like many treatments for skin lesions, some 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 microwave therapy liken it to to a sudden heat, lasting 2 – 3 seconds but quickly subsiding. Some people choose to apply an anaesthetic numbing cream available from our reception 45 minutes prior to each session.

In some cases the treated area may feel sore but will not prevent you undertaking normal daily activities. No dressings are needed and you can get your foot wet.

With a few exceptions, most people with skin lesions would be able to have this treatment. It is suitable for older children and low risk diabetics who have good circulation and sensations. Your podiatrist will carry out an assessment prior to treatment and be able to advise you on this.
