Swift is a cutting-edge, FDA-approved technology that is highly effective for removing plantar warts. Swift microwave therapy is a new technology developed in the UK, for the treatment of skin lesions in Podiatry and Dermatology. Swift makes use of microwave energy to treat the affected tissue in the skin. Reducing the time needed for treatment to minutes, Swift is a pioneering technology that provides an easy and precise way of treating a variety of skin lesions. Swift can be an effective treatment for warts and plantar warts, which are caused due to the HPV virus. The swift technology gets to the root of the problem by activating the immune system of the body against the HPV virus.
While the traditional treatment for warts involved destroying the skin, Swift emits a short amount of microwave energy into the skin, without breaking the skin. There is no scarring, dressing or breakage of skin involved in the procedure. The procedure can be completed in a short amount of time and patients can get back to normal activities immediately afterwards. The number of treatment sessions needed to complete the procedure varies from patient to patient.
Swift microwave therapy offers a cleaner, faster and efficient manner of treating warts and verrucae. The four ways in which the new Swift technology is different from past treatment procedures includes:
Some of the key benefits offered by the Swift microwave therapy include:

The Swift microwave therapy offers a quicker and faster treatment for warts and verrucae. The use of microwave energy allows for the faster treatment of the skin lesions. With the help of Swift, there is a precise, highly-controlled energy does to a pre-determined depth into the skin. This is what sets this form of treatment apart from the traditional methods. Since the microwaves are able to travel to a pre-determined depth of the skin, they do not break the surface of the skin and destroy the tissue from the point of application, similar to the method of cryotherapy. From the time of the treatment, microwaves work within the determined field and no deeper. The water molecules within the skin tissue begin colliding and create localized heat energy-allowing for the quick treatment of the infected tissue within one area of the skin.
Microwaves have been widely used clinically for over 30 years, and are used globally in the effective treatment of cancer. One of the first published papers on the use of microwaves in medicine was in 1986 – where researchers from Japan described a method of treating liver tumours. Those techniques have advanced significantly since then, and Emblation – the company behind Swift, is a key technology supplier to the largest medical device company in the world operating in this space. The same fundamental technology that powers Swift, is also being used in the treatment of lung, liver, kidney and breast cancer in countries all over the world.
