PLEASE NOTE: Treatment results are unpredictable, no technique is 100% effective.
Verrucas can clear on their own as the body develops an immune response without any treatment. It is impossible to say how long this will take sometimes months or years. They can spread both on the affected foot and to other people, and occasionally become painful.
The overlying hard skin is reduced so that the solution supplied for home application is more effective.
The verruca is frozen then allowed to thaw six times to initiate a wave effect so increasing the likelihood of eliminating the infected skin cells containing the verruca virus. Up to three verrucas can be treated at one time.
The verruca is first rendered pain free with a local anaesthetic, then repeatedly agitated with a hypodermic needle, the idea being to stimulate an immune response so an immediate result does not occur; resolution takes place some weeks or months later. A major advantage of this method is that only one small area requires treatment so is ideal for multiple or mosaic verruca.

Microwave energy is used to elevate tissue temperatures and create precise, localised cell destruction.
Infected tissue can exist several millimetres below the surface and can often be difficult to treat using traditional methods, resulting in either untreated tissue or significant damage.
Swift delivers a precise, highly controlled energy dose. As microwaves travel into the tissue, water molecules begin colliding and creating localised heat energy - quickly destroying all infected tissue within a predetermined depth.
In just seconds the treatment is complete, leaving the body to absorb and replace the treated tissue.
