Swift currently has the highest success rate on the market for treating warts. 

What are plantar warts?

Warts are a viral infection from the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) that manifest as a growth on the skin. There are over 100 kinds of strains of HPV, but only a few cause warts on your feet. The others strains are more likely to cause warts on other areas of your skin & body eg. hands, face or genitals. A wart that you find on the sole of your foot is called a verruca wart or plantar wart, which is the most common warts we treat. However, we are also able to treat any warts from the elbows down to the feet. 

Plantar warts can be painful and are very contagious, and easily spread to other parts of the body or from person to person, so it's important to have it treated swiftly. 

What is Swift Wart Therapy?

Swift uses medical microwave technology that is highly effective in resolving warts and verrucae. The machine allows us to deliver a focused direct microwave signal to a pre-determined depth into the skin, ensuring only the wart is treated. This is what sets Swift apart from other treatmention options. As these microwaves travel to a pre-determined depth, they do not damage the surface of the skin and instead causes the infected wart tissue to release proteins that illict an immune response from the body, to fight and cure the virus. Therefore, over the course of treatments your body becomes immune to the virus compared to other treatment options that just kill the wart. 

It rapidly heats the infected tissue to 42-45ºC over 2 seconds and this is repeated 5-8 times. This sudden increase in temperature can cause discomfort, however, as Swift treatments are very quick, discomfort only lasts a few seconds. Once the appropriate dosage has been delivered, the client can walk out without dressings and in no/very minimal pain. 

The benefits of Swift Wart Therapy

There are multiple benefits that differentiate Swift from other plantar wart treatments:

The treatment process

1. Dermatological Assessment

During this appointment, the podiatrist will confirm the presence of a wart and take you through the various treatment options. If Swift is chosen, the first treatment can be administered on the spot, as you can walk out without pain or dressings.

2. Swift sessions - Most people only require 3 appointments

Each session will be administered 4 weeks apart until the wart is resolved.
