- Quick treatments - your Swift treatment will last no longer than a few short seconds
- Clean treatments - no smoke, no smell, there is not normally any requirement for anaesthetic nor do patients usually require post-procedural dressings
How Does Microwave Therapy Work?
Infected tissue can exist several millimetres below the surface and can often be difficult to treat using traditional methods, resulting in either untreated tissue or leaving the potential for excess damage to healthy tissue.
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.
