Professional Podiatry LLC, a podiatric care clinic in Kenneth Square, PA, is happy to announce that they have recently received their new Swift Microwave Wart Therapy machine that can be used for plantar warts treatment with minimal pain and fast results. The microwave therapy machine employs microwave energy to elevate the temperature of the infected tissue and this stimulates the immune system to attack the virus causing the wart. The Swift microwave machine represents an advanced method of effectively treating surface based skin lesions, mainly warts. Most patients want their plantar warts to be removed because these are painful since they are located on the soles of the feet and the pressure causes pain.
Dr. Erin Kutvoelgyi, owner of Professional Podiatry LLC, says, “Swift is a cutting edge, FDA cleared technology that has proven to be highly effective in the removal of plantar warts. It delivers low dose microwave energy through a specialized probe that targets and effectively treats the underlying HPV virus by stimulating a natural immune response in the body. We like to say that we’re addressing the root cause; not the symptom.”
Plantar warts, just like other warts is caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) virus. Under the skin, the plantar wart may have finger-like roots that reach down and grow, which makes it very hard to treat this wart effectively from the surface. However, the microwave energy is able to reach these roots deep down under the skin.
The Swift protocol requires 3 to 4 treatments that are four weeks apart in order to ensure that the treatment is aligned with the natural immune cycle of the body. Each treatment session will only last for 5 to 10 minutes. And the advantages are that there is no breaking of the skin, there is minimal debridement, and no bandages are required. And there is no home treatment required in between sessions. And patients can get back to their daily chores right after treatment. Furthermore, it has been observed that the Swift treatment has a substantially higher efficacy in contrast to other treatment methods because it makes use of the power of the patient’s immune system.
Most patients feel some pain or discomfort as the microwave energy elevates the tissue temperature rapidly during a two-second dose of energy. This level of pain or discomfort varies depending on the patient and the lesion but this will only last while the microwave energy is being applied. The pain or discomfort immediately subsides after the energy delivery is stopped. Furthermore, there is very little pain after the procedure, with some patients reporting an immediate decrease in pain levels. And all patients reported being able to continue with their daily activities right after treatment.
They want to advise people who feel they have a plantar wart to contact them and schedule a consultation. It is advisable not to wait too long because the longer treatment is delayed, the longer the wart will persist. There are a number of symptoms to look out for, such as: feeling of having “painful pebbles” in one’s shoes; presence of a circular flat spot with a depressed are in the center; pain felt when the sides of the wart are compressed; and more.
