Treating Plantar Warts with Swift Microwave Therapy
In most medical clinics, warts are still usually treated using either a chemical agent or liquid nitrogen to burn, peel, or freeze the wart. Although wart treatment using these methods is often effective eventually, it may require many treatment sessions to achieve the best results. Individual sessions can be
painful, and there may be bleeding, collateral damage to healthy skin, and annoying aftercare to deal with.
Swift Microwave Therapy is a revolutionary new technology that uses an innovative approach to deliver much faster, safer, more comfortable, and more convenient results.
During the appointment, your wart is lightly debrided (this is quick and painless), then a small device is used to bombard the area of the wart with microwaves to a predetermined depth for 2-3 seconds. This might cause some very brief and minor discomfort during those two to three seconds, comparable to a fast, hot sensation, but immediately dissipates.
The microwaves “excite” water molecules, which heat up to not only treat the infected tissue, but to draw the attention of your body’s immune system. Your body then naturally begins to attack and eliminate the virus, which will ultimately cause the wart to disappear on its own without needing to be cut out, burned, or frozen off.
Since Swift doesn’t break the skin, no bandaging or aftercare is needed. You can go right back to your normal activities.
A single treatment session typically lasts no longer than about 15 minutes. Some people only require one session, although 2-3 is more typical.
