New Treatment for Verrucae
Podiatrist, Sara Williams BSC (Hons) is the first practitioner in North Devon to offer the Swift, Emblation Limited microwave therapy treatment.
Simple and highly effective
The therapy is simple and highly effective, a typical treatment just taking 5 seconds to administer, with no requirement for anaesthetic.
More effective then topical methods or traditional freezing with liquid nitrogen, following a course of monthly therapies a success rate of over 75% has been widely observed.
The Swift® system works using microwave energy to rapidly elevate tissue temperature and creates precise, localised cell destruction. Delivered to an exact and predetermined depth, microwave therapy creates accurate and precise ablation zones. Utilising innovative thermal management and measurement technologies, the system has been put through rigorous testing to ensure the highest possible levels of safety for patients.
The Swift® applicator is designed with a disposable tip, mitigating the risk of cross-contamination.
Podiatrist Dr Ivan Bristow, from the University of Southampton, remarked “As a clean technology, there is no plume or smoke during treatment and post operatively, as microwaves do not break the surface of the skin, no dressing or special arrangements are required. Patients find this particularly convenient.”
