Swift uses microwave technology to deliver a burst of localised energy. It is believed that the delivery of energy to the verruca triggers a protein to form that stimulates the immune system.
Yes. Microwave ablation (MWA) has been used to treat cancer cells for over 30 years. This technology is now being developed to treat other problems, with stubborn verrucae being one of the first.
A small probe is placed directly onto the skin. Treatment is momentarily painful before instantly subsiding. Several treatments are usually applied to each verruca in quick succession, after which then you are free to leave.
Although treatment is brief, pain is an individual experience. We can offer local analgaesia if treatment is likely to be excessively uncomfortable.
As Swift Verruca Treatment is considered a ‘clean treatment’, normal activity, including swimming and sports, can usually be resumed immediately after treatment. There is also no need to keep the foot dry in most cases.
We offer two options for Swift Treatment:
For convenience, it may be possible to have the first Swift Treatment at the same time as the Initial Assessment, whereby the cost of Swift Treatment would be added to the initial assessment fee.
2) Swift Package
(Pay-per-treatment equivalent £480)

At Leigham Practice our verruca services are led by a former NHS Verruca Service Manager and we are proud to achieve an extraordinary success rate of over 90% by the third Swift treatment, even for the most stubborn and resistant verrucae.
It depends on how much progress you’ve made.
If your progress has been good, and it seems further treatment might be likely to resolve your problems, further Swift treatment can be offered. Additional Swift treatment would be charged at £105 for customers who originally took the Package option, or the usual fee of £125 for pay-per-treatment customers.
However, if progress is very slow and further treatment might not be considered likely to provide further success, our team can discuss further medical strategies and options available.
