We are the only Podiatry clinic in Gloucestershire who has the Swift microwave technology, and are delighted to announce that the treatment is now available to our patients.
This innovative treatment is the most effective treatment available for verrucas with treatment times in seconds ideal for busy individuals.
What is Swift?
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.
Does it Hurt?
Like many treatments for skin lesions, some minor discomfort may be experienced.
Before treatment your Podiatrists may decide to reduce the lesion with a blade.
Pain levels vary from person to person but most people undergoing Swift liken it to a pain similar to an injection or a scratch, lasting 2-3 seconds and then quickly subsiding.
What can I do After Treatment?
In some cases the treated area may feel sore but will not prevent you undertaking normal daily activities.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
This is dependent upon how you respond to treatment.
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 Have This Treatment?
With a few exceptions, most people with skin lesions would be able to have this treatment.
Your Podiatrist will carry out an assessment prior to treatment and be able to advise you on this.
How Much Does This Treatment Cost?
We can offer our patients 2 payment options:
1: Package of 3 treatments for £270
2: Pay as you go treatments at £100 each
