Verrucae can be described as warts on the feet caused by a viral infection, they commonly affect children, but can affect any age group.
Here at Randell’s Footcare, we specialise in the treatment of Verrucae. There are many different treatments available; ours range from acid preparations to cryo-surgery. Cryosurgery is a course of therapy which involves freezing the Verrucae.
We are fortunate to be one of the first practitioners in the country to be able to offer Swift Microwave Therapy. Swift is a new technology, developed in the Uk. Swift uses microwave energy which is delivered through a special probe applied to the skin to treat the affected tissue. The number of treatment sessions required is determined by the type and number of verrucae present.
Swift Therapy information
Microwaves have been in clinical use for over 30 years, and are used globally in the effective treatment of cancer. Now in 2016 for the first time, this technology has been applied for use on skin lesions such as verrucae. Infected tissue can exist several millimetres below the surface. Swift delivers a precise, highly controlled energy dose. As microwaves travel into the tissue, water molecules begin colliding and creating localised heat energy – quickly destroying all infected tissue within a predetermined depth. In just seconds the treatment is complete and the healing cascade begins immediately. Treated tissue is quickly replaced, repaired and regenerated.
