The disposable/single use head attached to the Swift machine has a life of 15 minutes and so multiple sites can be treated during the same visit.
Most treatments are up to 5 seconds in length, some could be up to 10 seconds.
Discomfort maybe experienced ending as soon as the application finishes. Sensation will vary between individuals and there is rarely any lasting discomfort although tingling may be experienced at the site for 24hrs.
The Swift head is 7mm wide and larger warts will be treated in a series of overlapping applications.
There should be no scarring or other long term marking of the skin. In the days following treatment the warts may change colour, go dark and can look like a bruise.
Large warts may not disappear straightaway, but will reduce in thickness, or ‘de-bulk’, before resolving. Some warts simply peel off the foot.
Many resolve after three treatments although some may require more applications. It can take up to three months after the last Swift treatment for the warts to vanish as the immune response gathers pace.
