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.
It is not uncommon for patients to feel a sharp sensation during the 2 second treatment. Unlike most treatments for verrucas, 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 affect your from performing your normal daily activities.
This is dependent on how you respond to treatment and how may or large your lesions are. In some cases, you may need more than one treatment (these can be from 14 days to over a month apart depending on the response).
With a few exceptions, most people with skin lesions would be able to have this treatment.
