SWIFT Verrucae Treatments

SWIFT Verrucae Treatments

Swift is a new technology, developed in the UK, which has been licenced for the general treatment of skin lesions in Podiatry and Dermatology. Swift uses microwave energy which is delivered through a special probe to treat the affected tissue. Package includes 3 treatments and a follow-up.
Verrutop Verrucae Treatment

Verrutop Verrucae Treatment

Verrutop is a new type of wart treatment. Unlike Cryotherapy or other chemical treatments, Verrutop does not act by freezing or burning the tissue. Instead it denatures the viral protein and desiccates the wart tissue, which then falls off the skin, leaving intact skin underneath.
Nail Surgery

Nail Surgery

Treatment for ingrown, distorted and/or fungal nails. An offending section of an ingrown nail will often cause pain, inflammation and in some cases, infection. It is therefore imperative that this problem is treated in a timely and efficient manner to avoid further complication. Price includes 2 x follow up appointments.
Fungal Nail Treatment

Fungal Nail Treatment

Lacuna treatment involves using a specially designed micro burr and painlessly drilling small holes within the nail plate across the fungal infected area to expose the nail bed. Application of anti fungal spray is then able to pass through the small drilled holes which can effectively treat the point of infection under the nail.
Diabetic Foot Screening

Diabetic Foot Screening

Having diabetes means you’re at much greater risk of developing foot problems. But understanding how diabetes affects feet can help you avoid these complications. Having an annual check up is very important.
Warm Wax Therapy
