How Does Swift Microwave Therapy Work?

Swift is a recent advanced technology, originally developed in UK and is used for treating lesions on the skin. In podiatry, this is the first effective treatment that is used for treating warts and verrucas, unlike other treatments which have failed previously.

In this therapy, a focused microwave signal radiates into the skin right at the point where the wart has originated. This signal has a temperature of around 42-45 degrees celsius and heats the infected cells surrounding the wart from within. As a consequence, this triggers the wart to release particular proteins in the circulatory system and enables the immune system of the body to identify the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) so that it can immediately fight and provide relief from the painful condition.

After how many sessions will it be effective?

Swift microwave therapy requires 3-4 sessions of about 10-15 minutes each. During each session, you will receive multiple microwave energy doses which will last for 2 seconds approximately. However, the number of doses varies since it is dependent on the size and condition of the wart. Each session is scheduled by your podiatrist with a gap of 4 weeks to harmonize with your body’s immunity system.

Is this treatment painful?

Some minor discomfort can be felt while the treatment is going on. However, it is not the same with everyone. Swift microwave therapy is a quick treatment that lasts for only a few seconds. Moreover, there is no need for dressing afterwards. There is no scaring after treatment.

Can anyone avail of this treatment?

After the treatment, how will the wart/verruca appear and will it work quickly?

It is important to know that there won’t be any immediate change in the appearance of the wart/verruca. So don’t panic if you see no change in the appearance! Nonetheless, you will notice a change only after a few days. The radiation of microwave signals triggers the immune response of the body. The immune system requires some time to set a response and fight the HPV virus. As you continue to attend the treatment sessions, the verruca/wart will shrink in size and have a reduced thickness.
