Belmont Anderson & Associates Podiatry, a Las Vegas podiatry clinic, is pleased to announce they have acquired a new Saorsa Swift microwave therapy machine to be used for treating plantar warts. They offer various services such as: hammer toe treatment; bunions treatment and bunion surgery; diabetes foot care; plantar fasciiitis treatment; diagnostic ultrasound for feet; heel spurs treatment; heel pain treatment; treatment for toe nails or toe nail deformities; and more.
Dr. Belmont Anderson, founder of Belmont Anderson & Associates Podiatry, says, “Plantar warts are an infectious disease in the skin that are actually contagious. These painful little monsters can be unsightly and spread easily. We employ very effective treatments that will zap those warts for good.”
The Saorsa Swift microwave therapy machine utilizes a low dose of microwaves directed at the wart to speedily increase its temperature. This temperature rise activates the natural immune response, which will then act to eliminate the underlying cause of the wart, which is the HPV virus. The Swift machine is generally safe not just because it has been approved by the FDA for use in the US but also because it only employs only a low dosage of microwave energy. In addition, it is important to note that microwaves have already been in use in medicine for 30 years in various countries around the world. It has been used for the treatment for various types of cancer, such as lung, liver, breast, and kidney cancer.
The Saorsa Swift microwave therapy machine has also been designed to avoid cross-contamination. Its applicator, which is shaped like a pen to allow easy control for the podistrist in directing the microwaves to the affected tissue, is provided with a disposable tip. This tip has be replaced for each new treatment session. If not, the machine’s in-built sensor will not allow the machine to operate, thus preventing possible contamination.
The treatment session using the Swift microwave therapy machine is also convenient because it usually lasts for only 5 to 10 minutes, which is definitely much shorter compared to the typical one-hour sessions. The complete Swift protocol only needs 3 to 4 treatment sessions. The sessions have to be spaced four weeks to ensure that the treatment is in line with the natural immune cycle of the body.
Furthermore, the Swift therapy session will not cause any cut on the skin, in contrast to other typical wart treatment approaches. Thus, there will be no bandages or dressings. There is only minimal pain during the treatment and no post-procedural pain. This means the patient can immediately return to whatever they have been doing before the treatment, meaning no downtime.
