What Is Swift Therapy?
Swift therapy is performed by a medical device known as SWIFT. It emits a targeted microwave signal into the skin that works to eradicate verrucae, warts, and papillomas. The microwave signal is set to a specific depth that ensures that only the wart is treated.
During the treatment, a process known as Heat Shock occurs. This is what happens when a wart releases specific proteins into the circulatory system. This then triggers the immune system to register the source of HP Virus infection.
It is then fought off.
What to Expect from Swift Therapy Treatment
With Swift therapy, you won’t feel any pain. The rapid heating of warts can cause a little bit of discomfort. Though, this only lasts for less than a second and is not painful. The temperature is only a few degrees warmer than a hot bath.
It will not cause any tissue damage or scarring. In saying this, patients have varying levels of pain tolerance or discomfort tolerance. While most patients won’t need pain relief when they’re receiving treatment, there is the option for pain relief should you want it. Depending on how you respond to the Swift therapy treatment, you may need 3-4 treatments 4 weeks apart or less.
Your podiatrist will be able to discuss your treatment plan with you to get the best results possible with no downtime, no self-care, and no dressings. With very few exceptions, most people can have Swift therapy treatment. Your podiatrist will ensure that an in-depth assessment is carried out before treatment to advise you of this.
When it comes to the benefits of Swift therapy, you will enjoy treatment without dressings, no need for self-care at home, it is highly effective, and you only need a few treatments.
