The Best Verruca Treatment – A New Verruca Treatment Using Microwaves
Verruca is a skin infection caused by The Human Papilloma Virus. Verruca can be very painful and can appear on any part of the body. The best verruca treatment available today is the new Swift Microwave Verruca Treatment. This is a new pioneering technology, developed in the UK. Swift uses microwave energy which is delivered through a special probe applied to the skin to treat the affected tissue.
How many treatments will I need?
This is very much dependent on how you respond to the treatment. We aim to provide three or four treatments. Your Podiatrist will be able to discuss this with you.
Who can receive this treatment ?
With a few exceptions, most adults and children with skin lesions would be able to have this microwave verruca treatment. Your Podiatrist will carry out an assessment prior to treatment and be able to advise you on this.
Is it safe ?
Yes. Microwaves can’t cause damage to the DNA of living things. The Swift system delivers very low energy levels when compared with other electromagnetic energy forms. The Swift treatment is only capable of supplying enough energy to agitate water molecules and cause friction, as opposed to damaging DNA. It delivers less energy into the skin than most laser treatments.
Every medical product that is available in the UK and Europe must go through stringent regulatory processes to ensure compliance with the Medical Devices Directive (MDD). This is a comprehensive standard that ensures the safety of patients and users. Swift has been designed, developed and manufactured in the UK.
We interact with microwaves in more ways than we know, every day! Aside from the kitchen appliance, microwaves are used in a number of everyday applications. Standard wifi uses microwaves, mobile phones, bluetooth, and cordless phones all use microwaves to send data over short distances. Furthermore, most satellite communications systems (including GPS navigation systems) are also based on the use of microwaves.
How effective is the treatment ?
Swift is the most effective treatment for Verruca that currently exists in medicine.
Independent clinical trials conducted by Dr Ivan Bristow from The University of Southampton demonstrated success rates at 76%. This trial is supported by research published by Professor Mike Arden – Jones from The University of Southampton’s Faculty of Medicine. This proves how microwaves induce an immune response and thus; clear Verruca.
We believe that this is the best verruca treatment available. If you would like to consider treatment for verrucae please contact the Clinic and make an appointment for an Initial Assessment.
