Pioneering, precise and effective

At Footworks Podiatry, we understand how persistent a verruca can be. Frustrating, unsightly and sometimes painful – we’re committed to leading the way in finding innovative and groundbreaking treatments for this common problem.

Swift® is a cutting-edge technology that’s been developed after lengthy research and development and clinical testing in the UK. It uses microwave energy delivered through a probe that’s applied to the verruca. Unlike traditional verruca therapies, the microwaves only travel to the actual verruca so the skin around it isn’t affected. They cause water molecules to collide into each other and create heat which treats the infected tissue (the verruca).

The 5-second verruca treatment*

The name says it all as Swift® only takes around 5 seconds (depending on the size and number of verrucas). You won’t need any anaesthetic or dressings meaning you can get on with everyday life right away.* With its higher success rate and immediate recovery times, this revolutionary treatment is set to make all the difference for our clients.

Your questions answered

Why is Swift® quicker than traditional verruca treatments?

Using microwave energy makes this pioneering treatment quicker than treatments such as cryotherapy. Microwaves deliver highly-controlled energy to a very precise area (the verruca) to treat infected tissue only immediately.

Will I need more than 1 Swift® treatment?

Many of our clients need 3 treatments in total, delivered at weekly intervals. We’ll assess the verruca and talk this through with you so you know exactly what to expect.

Is the treatment painful?

Some clients feel minor discomfort for around 2 to 3 seconds during treatment. This may feel like a burning sensation.

Is there any downtime?

One of the great benefits of Swift® is that you’ll be free to carry on with everyday life as soon as treatment is over. As Swift® doesn’t affect any skin surrounding the verruca, you won’t need any bandages or dressings.

Can anyone have Swift®?

Most people are suitable for Swift® treatment. We’ll assess and discuss this during your consultation.

Is the treatment safe?

This is a very safe procedure that’s been thoroughly tried and tested. Microwaves have been in clinical use for over 30 years and are used throughout the world to treat cancer.
