Swift Microwave Therapy is the most convenient, effective treatment for stubborn plantar warts.

Do you have painful, unsightly or persistent plantar warts?

While traditional wart treatments like cryotherapy or salicylic acid are usually ineffective, painful and harmful to the skin; Swift Microwave Therapy is Australia’s most effective wart treatment with an 83% success rate. 

What is Swift Microwave Therapy?

Swift is a new technology, developed in the UK, which uses microwave energy delivered through a special probe applied to the skin to treat the affected tissue. This helps your body’s own immune system to finally recognise and attack the virus while being non-invasive so there’s no interruption to your daily life. You can even continue playing sports afterwards! In just one to three sessions, most patients see their warts completely disappear.

How Does It Work?


Warts live a few millimetres under the skin, so your body doesn’t recognise they’re there. Swift targets the root cause of the wart virus by delivering microwave energy directly into the affected tissue without breaking or damaging the surrounding skin.


Swift microwaves can be adjusted to focus on a defined area and depth. They generate thermal energy, heating the tissue and triggering a state of stress in the infected cells. Heat causes the release of signalling proteins which alert your body’s immune system to fight the virus.


Infected skin cells can now be recognised and eliminated by your body. New healthy cells regenerate and skin returns to normal.

Benefits of Swift compared to other wart treatments:

No Smoke
No Anaesthetic & Minimal Scraping
No Dressings & After Care Required
No Chemicals, Acids or Creams
No Time Off – Pain is Reduced Post Treatment
Fast Treatment Time

You can come in and walk out in as quick as 20 minutes.

Few Treatments Required

Most people require one to three treatments one month apart with a 3 month follow-up. You could see complete removal after a single treatment. 

Highly Effective

Swift treatment for warts has an 83% success rate and 95% of patients would recommend it – even those with partial resolution benefit from reduced pain or a reduced size and depth of warts. 

Suitable for Children

The research shows that children will resolve quicker, and in fewer appointments, than adults. Swift is a non-destrictive and non-invasive treatment that utilises the body’s own immune system to treat the virus.

Does it Hurt?

The rapid heating of the wart to 42-45C can cause discomfort – for some it is a sharp sensation similar to an injection and for others it feels like they briefly touched something hot. The sensation only lasts for a few seconds. The temperature range is a few degrees warmer than a hot bath and will not cause any serious tissue damage or scarring. In rare cases the treated area may feel a little sore but it won’t not prevent you undertaking normal daily activities including sports.

Is it Safe?

Yes! Microwaves have been used for many clinical purposes for over 30 years and are all around us in things like kitchen appliances, WiFi, mobile phones, cordless Bluetooth earbuds, and GPS navigation systems.

Microwaves are a form of non-ionising radiation, which means they can’t damage the DNA of living things. Swift delivers them with very low energy, targeting a small, precise area so only the wart is affected. The Swift microwave treatment is only capable of supplying enough energy to agitate water molecules and cause friction and deliver less energy into the skin than most laser and electrocautery treatments.

Swift is approved for safe use by the Therapeutic Goods Administration of Australia.
