Swift is the pioneering new microwave therapy system for wart removal. With treatment time in seconds, Swift offers patients significantly faster, easier and more effective results for wart removal than previous methods like surgery, cryotherapy or chemicals. Unlike these other methods, Swift is highly effective boasting a cure rate of greater than 85% and a recurrence rate of less than 1%.
Swift wart removal offers clean and quick treatment with no bandages, at home care, or patient downtime. Southeastern Dermatology is the only provider of Swift in the greater Knoxville area.
How Does Swift Wart Removal Work?
Warts are caused by a virus. Instead of destroying the tissue where the virus lives like most treatments, Swift works by delivering low-power microwave energy that stimulates the body’s immune system to remove warts from the inside out. With the Swift treatment, your body is alerted to the presence of warts and it quickly builds up an immunity to the strand of HPV causing them. The body then replaces the wart with new healthy tissue without leaving a scar like destructive methods typically do.
Is the Swift Treatment Painful?
Aside from the moderate discomfort during the 2-3 seconds of treatment time, the Swift treatment does not produce any lingering pain. Since Swift is non-surgical, no anesthetic is required and no downtime or follow up care is needed. Patients can resume normal activity immediately. Patients usually need 3-4 treatments, 4 weeks apart for complete resolution.
Where can Swift be used?
Swift can be used on all types of warts on almost any body part. Since Swift generates an innate immune response to warts, it is not necessary to treat every wart. This is great news for patients who have multiple warts on various parts of their body.
