How to get rid of Verrucas, Cambridge

SWIFT microwave technology - the new way to destroy verrucas!

We are proud to be the first clinic in the Cambridge area to offer this brand new technology.  SWIFT microwave technology is the breakthrough in verruca and wart treatment that Podiatrists and Dermatologists have been waiting for.  Recent studies have demsonstrated a 94% clearance rate in stubborn verrucas in 3 treatments.  The technology has been rigorously tested in trials for the past 2 years and became available to suitably qualified and trained podiatrists and dermatologists in 2016.

We love SWIFT because it does not involve weekly lengthy treatments, there is very little after pain, no wounds to care for and whilst a small amount of discomfort is felt it only lasts between 2-5 seconds.

 

The microwave heat the tissue to between 41-44C which causes Heat Shock Protein 70 production which stimulates production of an immune response including Langerhans cells and Interferon production which presents antigens to T-cells which begins the destruction of the virus.

 

The treatment does not 'shrink' the verruca it progressively 'thins' it until it disappears completely.

So how much does it it cost?  Well, as with a lot of new technology the equipment is expensive and every 'end piece' is disposable which makes this treatment more expensive than a topical verruca treatment.  Compare treatment options here:

 

Chemical Treatments typically <40% effective, weekly, painful, have to keep a dressing dry.  Average total treatment cost: £255 (6 treatments before deciding to cease)

 

Cryotherapy Treatments typically <50% effective, every 3 weeks, painful during and after, average total treatment: £213 (5 treatments before deciding to cease)

 

Verruca Needling typically <70% effective, every 8 weeks, painful, requires anaesthetic injections and dressings: £180 per treatment (up to 3)

 

SWIFT Microwave treatment >90% effective, usually monthly, 2-5 secs pain which does not last, no dressings: £150 initial, 1st £120* follow-up treatment, subsequent follow-up treatments £75* (*if required), lesions typically resolve in 1-3 treatments (varies in individuals according to skin dryness, longevity of lesion and health status).

 

IMPORTANT:  Not all patients are suitable verruca treatments. Every patient is subject to an initial consultation and consent form.  If we consider that your health or medication contraindicates treatment we will not be able to treat you.
 
 
SEE WHAT OUR FIRST PATIENT SAID:
 
"Well, yes, it did hurt a bit but it's only for 2 seconds and then it's over.  It's worth 2 seconds of pain so I don't have to keep coming back and I can continue my life and forget about it.  It's expensive but I'd rather pay and have it over and done with and not have all the hassle of putting stuff on every day that doesn't work and not be able to shower and do my classes".
