Swift® Verruca Treatment

Introducing Swift® Verruca Treatment

Have you got a stubborn verruca which will not respond to treatment? Then look no further than the newest in technology, quickest, easiest and most effective treatment – swift®. Our Podiatrist Louise has been using this treatment successfully since it was launched in 2016.

Have you got a stubborn verruca which will not respond to treatment?

“I never thought I would get rid of my verrucae, that I have had for several years and that at times were making it painful to go for regular walks. A friend recommended Louise’s podiatry practice and after consultation suggested using the Swift Verruca Treatment. Well, after 6 months and 3 treatments I am very happy to say that my verrucae have now gone and my foot completely healed. Without hesitation, I would recommend the very high quality professional services that Louise and her team have provided.”

What is swift® and how does it work?

Developed in the UK, swift® uses microwave energy to treat the verruca in a very precise and controlled way. Treatment takes up to 10 seconds per verruca. The main benefit is unlike many of the alternative treatments: there is no need for any anaesthetic or dressings, and you can continue to your normal activities straight away.

The microwave energy is delivered directly to the verruca at a predetermined depth. This means that, unlike other treatments, there is no damage to the surrounding healthy tissue. It heats the skin by around 4 degrees, targeting the water molecules and destroying the infected viral cells.

Is it safe?

Microwaves have been used in clinics for over 30 years, particularly in cancer treatments. They cannot cause damage to the DNA of living things, due to the DNA structure. So, much like the microwave in your kitchen, swift® is entirely safe!

How successful is it?

Unlike other treatments available (acids, cryotherapy, needling), swift® targets the cells which cause the verruca. This creates an immune response. Because of this, it has the highest success rate of all of the treatments available.


At West Berkshire Foot Clinic, we offer swift® as a package of three treatments. This is recommended by the manufacturer and has been shown to give the best results. These are spaced four weeks apart. Each treatment is up to 10 seconds per verruca treated in two-second blasts. There is some slight discomfort experienced, likened to a bee sting. This dissipates immediately and you are able to continue normal activities straight away.  Occasionally, additional treatments are required – particularly with long-standing verrucae. These can be purchased separately if needed.


What People are saying:

“Thank you for recommending the Swift treatment for my verruca. After years of going for foot treatments at beauty therapists being told my hard skin was due to underlying health condition, on visiting You it was diagnosed as a verruca.  I was initially hesitant about having the Swift treatment and started with a chemical treatment before then deciding to use Swift. I so wish I had undertaken this treatment initially as today less than 5 months after the initial treatment the verrucae have gone and my foot is smooth where verruca had been.
My foot feels and looks a thousand times better, and actually the cost of the treatment is probably the same or less than all the beauty therapist treatments over the years. Another bonus my shoes won’t wear unevenly where the hard skin was.”     February 2021


“You really have changed my life! I am still surprised, at times, that there is no pain when I put my foot on the floor. I realised when you initially explained the swift treatment and its success rate, that my monster verruca was going to be serious challenge for you. But I think you like a challenge and your constant patience,  kindness and encouragement have kept me going over the past year. I really thought I would  need to have a 7th or even an 8th treatment but I wasn’t going to give up because I knew you wouldn’t. I feel I have definitely had 5 star treatment. Thank you again for changing my life!” June 2020

“I am over the moon! I’m really happy, pleased and finally pain free!!! I’m not ashamed of my feet anymore. I went on holiday and could walk for miles, wore my lovely sandals for the day time and night time and no need for plasters or covering the bottom of my feet. I so thank you for helping me and always being positive and honest all the way through my treatment. I’m not going to lie but I was losing hope and thought I’d never be able to have my feet looking like they used to look like 10 yrs ago!! Once again Louise THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!” – September 2019
