Verrucas are warty growths on the foot caused by a virus, and as such are difficult to treat effectively. Verrucas can be contracted in communal areas, such as swimming pools and changing rooms. They are contagious therefore to reduce the risk of catching them, precautions should be taken. Avoid walking around barefoot in communal areas. Verrucas are one of the most common foot complaints amongst patients in the UK, causing pain, embarrassment and irritation. Notoriously difficult to get rid of, traditional treatments can be painful, invasive and protracted. A revolutionary breakthrough has been made in the treatment of verrucas that offers a faster and more predictable outcome.
Swift® is a brand new technology, developed in the UK, which has been licensed for the general treatment of skin lesions in Podiatry and Dermatology. Microwave energy is delivered through a special probe applied to the skin to treat the affected tissue. Infected tissue can exist several millimetres below the skin and can be difficult to treat using traditional methods resulting in untreated tissue. Using the Swift probe we can deliver a precise dose of energy deep into the affected area. Microwaves travel quickly into the tissue causing localised heating and cell destruction within a pre-determined depth. Seconds later the treatment is complete and the healing cascade begins immediately. Treated tissue is quickly replaced repaired and regenerated.
