What is Swift

WHAT IS SWIFT®?

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.

DOES IT HURT?

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.

WHAT CAN I DO AFTER TREATMENT?

In some cases the treated area may feel sore but will not affect your from performing your normal daily activities. 

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

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). 

CAN ANYONE RECEIVE THIS TREATMENT? 

With a few exceptions, most people with skin lesions would be able to have this treatment.
