Swift is a cutting edge technology proven to be highly effective in the removal of plantar warts. Rather than destroying a wart by burning it, freezing it, or pouring corrosive acid over it, Swift delivers a highly controlled dose of microwave energy directly into the tissue millimetres below the surface of the wart. This microwave energy elevates the skin temperature and destroys the underlying HPV virus that causes the plantar wart. 

During treatment, it is not uncommon for patients to feel a sharp sensation (like getting an injection). Patients undergoing Swift treatments see a significant reduction in pain after each treatment; rarely is there any prolonged pain or discomfort afterwards. With a few exceptions, most people with plantar warts are able to receive this treatment. Your chiropodist will do an assessment prior to treatment and advise you on this.
