With treatment times in seconds, Swift provides a precise and easy way of treating skin lesions.
Swift is a new technology, developed in the UK, which has been licensed 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.
It is not uncommon for patients to feel a sharp sensation, similar to an injection. Unlike most treatments for verruca, pain felt during the treatment quickly subsides, and only in rare cases is there any prolonged pain.
In some cases the treated area may feel sore but will not usually prevent you undertaking normal daily activities.
This is dependent on how you respond to treatment. In some cases, you may require a course of treatment (treatment regime is determined by your clinician and your Podiatrist will be able to discuss this with you).
With a few exceptions, most people with skin lesions would be able to have this treatment. Swift is not recommended for use on diabetic patients, patients with implanted electronic devices or electrodes or for use close to metallic objects (i.e. metal foot implants, jewellery etc)
All information read here is based on Patient Information Sheets created by trained, registered Clinicians who are experienced with the product and treatment protocol - Before undergoing treatment ensure your Podiatrist or Dermatologist is registered and has given you the full range of options available.
Microwave energy rapidly elevates tissue temperature and creates precise, localised cell destruction
Infected tissue can exist several millimetres below the surface and can often be difficult to treat using traditional methods, resulting in either untreated tissue or significant damage.
Swift delivers a precise, highly controlled energy dose. As microwaves travel into the tissue, water molecules begin colliding and creating localised heat energy - quickly destroying all infected tissue within a predetermined depth.
In just seconds the treatment is complete and the healing cascade begins immediately. Treated tissue is quickly replaced, repaired and regenerated.
