Verruca Removal

NEW for 2017: Swift microwave treatment for verruca – simply, the most effective available.

Stamp-out painful, spreading and stubborn verrucas – FAST, with state-of-the-art Swift,  treatment that’s hassle-free and safe. Add in 16 years experience and a FREE Chiropodist consultation and you’ll see why patients pick Pod.

VERRUCA TREATMENT OPTIONS

Leaving the wart to go away itself is an option, however you may want treatment if your verruca is painful, is spreading or is causing you distress or embarrassment.

We now use Swift Microwave Therapy to treat 90% of verruca cases. We have experience in providing other treatments too:

  • MICROWAVE TREATMENT: This is by far the most popular option amongst patients for a number of reasons:
    • Most effective of all treatments
    • Fast treatment time (5 seconds!)
    • Little / No Impact on lifestyle
    • No drugs
    • No chemicals
    • No needles, scalpels or injections
    • No dressings or home care necessary
    • Can be used in a number of medical conditions
  • LASER TREATMENT: Highly effective treatment however can be painful; this makes it unsuitable for large, or mosaic verrucae. Local anaesthesia injection is often required. The disadvantage of the anaesthetic is that you are unable t0 drive due to numbness, for up to 12 hours after and therefore need to allow for this.
  • FREEZING (Cryosurgery): This uses Liquid Nitrogen to freeze skin infected with the virus treatment; it is usually painful, both during AND after treatment. Dressings are required as blistering usually occurs.
  • FREEZING (cont) The treatment involves frequent check-ups at intervals of 7-10 days which may not suit a busy or active lifestyle. Pain-killers are usually required. Often requires numerous repeat applications.
  • SALICYLIC ACID MASKS: Unlike acid containing products available from Pharmacies, this treatment involves placing a strong acid on the verruca then applying padding and dressings to the foot. This “mask” stays in place for 5-7 days during which time, it MUST be kept completely dry and activity should be avoided; for these reasons it is less popular than our other options.
  • PHARMACY TREATMENTS: There are a variety of applications available from pharmacies both over-the-counter or on prescription. They are often similar to each other in that they contain acids but not as strong as those used by Chiropodists. They can must be used with care and the treatment is often laborious with frequent application, filing and dressing of the affected area; improvements to the condition often take a long while. Their use is not advised in diabetes. Freezing treatments from Pharmacies are generally not as cold as the those used by Chiropodists so are generally considered less effective.
  • SURGERY: Invasive methods like surgery have downsides such as pain and long recovery times and they can therefore impact on lifestyle.

MICROWAVE VERRUCA TREATMENT

Swift is the pioneering new microwave therapy for verruca; it’s quick and hassle-free: no drugs, needles, paints or potions, just state-of-the-art tech and over 16 years of experience in providing verruca removal in Leicester.

  • Swift is a new technology, developed in the UK, which has been licenced for the general treatment of skin lesions in Podiatry and Dermatology. Swift uses microwave energy to remove verruca and is applied using a handheld.
  • Minor discomfort varies from person to person but most people that have had  Swift say that its similar to a prick or a scratch, lasting 2 – 3 seconds then quickly fading. Some minor discomfort may be experienced. Before treatment our podiatrist may need to reduce the lesion with a blade.
  • In some cases the treated area may feel tender but will not prevent you undertaking normal daily activities.
  • The number of treatments required to remove verruca is dependent on how long you have had them, there location, how many you have, and how you respond to treatment. In some cases, you may need more than one treatment (these can be from 14 days to over a month apart depending on the response). Our Podiatrist will be able to discuss this with you.

Watch How - The Science.

  • VERRUCA TREATMENT FOR CHILDREN – Swift treatment allows us to safely treat children from age 8 years upwards, subject to check-up (CRB Checked)
  • Most people with verrucae are able to have this treatment and our Podiatrist will carry out an assessment prior to treatment to confirm.
  • Microwaves treatments have been in use for over 30 years, and are used globally in the effective treatment of cancer.
  • 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.
  • Aside from the kitchen appliance, microwaves are used in a number of everyday applications. Standard wifi uses microwaves; mobile phones, bluetooth, and cordless phones all use microwaves to send data over short distances. Furthermore, most satellite communications systems (including GPS navigation systems) are also based on the use of microwaves – we interact with microwaves in more ways than we know, every day.
  • A clinical study carried out by the University Of Southampton recruited 32 adults with one or more persistent verruca for a course of upto 4 treatments, roughly 4 weeks apart. In order to be eligible for the research, patients had to have had their verruca for at leat 1 year and failed to respond to previous treatments. The results showed that out of 54 warts treated with swift microwave therapy, 76% of verrucae had resolved, 94% of the resolved verruca cleared after 3 treatments or less. 

Cost of Swift verruca treatment

Prices start from £125 per treatment for up to 3 verrucae depending on the  severity of the condition. We provide a FREE consultation to assess the condition and answer any questions you may have. There is NO OBLIGATION to have treatment after this consultation.
