The treatment uses a non-invasive method, placing a probe over the verruca, emitting microwaves approximately 5mm deep into the tissue.
The treatment may cause some discomfort; those who have undergone SWIFT have described it as a sharp sensation, however, the degree of pain depends on teh individual. This discomfort usually only lasts a couple of seconds before disappearing.
SWIFT usually takes around 30 minutes and most individuals need up to 3 sessions, however, some people may require more to fully eliminate the virus. It will take a couple weeks after the treatment for a change to be seen.
