Verruca treatment

Verruca or plantar warts are caused by the Human Papilloma Virus.

They may be single or multiple mosaic verruca.

They have become very resistant to conventional treatment so we therefore use a combination of treatments depending on pain, position and size of lesion.

Treatments include cryotherapy (freezing) and chemicals.

The aim of these treatments is to stimulate the body’s immune response.

Introducing our new Swift microwave system to treat verruca

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 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. The majority of patients liken the discomfort to an injection or scratch, lasting 2-3 seconds.

What should I expect after treatment?

In some cases the treated area may feel sore but most people will have no pain after the treatment and can continue their day-to-day activities.

How many treatments will I need?

This will be dependent on how you respond to treatment. In some cases you may need more than one treatment. If this is the case we will be able to advise the best treatment plan for you.

Can anyone receive this treatment?

Most people with skin lesions will be able to receive this treatment. An assessment will be carried out prior to treatment to determine suitability.

Healing rate
There is a 92% healing rate after 3-4 treatments.
