What are Warts?

Warts are common skin growths caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). They can appear on various parts of the body, including the feet, where they are known as plantar warts. 

These warts can be painful and uncomfortable, especially when walking or standing for extended periods. 

Traditional treatments for warts, such as cryotherapy or topical medications, can be time-consuming and may not always yield the desired results. That’s where SWIFT microwave therapy comes in.

What is SWIFT Microwave Therapy?

SWIFT stands for “microwave therapy,” a revolutionary treatment approach for warts. This technology uses a handheld device that delivers precise microwave energy directly to the affected area. The energy heats up and destroys the tissue infected by the HPV, effectively targeting the root cause of the wart.

How Does SWIFT Microwave Therapy Work?

During a SWIFT therapy session, your podiatrist at AC Podiatry will use a specialised device to apply microwave energy to the wart. The treatment is quick, typically taking only a few seconds per application. You may feel a mild heating sensation during the procedure, but it is generally well-tolerated by patients.

The microwave energy works by creating heat within the affected tissue, which destroys the HPV-infected cells. This targeted approach ensures that only the wart is treated, leaving the surrounding healthy skin unharmed. Throughout several sessions, the wart gradually diminishes and eventually disappears.

Benefits of SWIFT Microwave Therapy

Swift Microwave Therapy offers several advantages over traditional wart removal methods:

High Success Rate

Studies have shown that SWIFT therapy has an effectiveness rate of up to 83% within just 3-5 sessions. This means that the majority of patients experience complete wart removal after undergoing this treatment.

Minimal Discomfort

Unlike other wart removal methods that can be painful or cause significant discomfort, SWIFT therapy is relatively painless. Patients may experience a mild heating sensation during the procedure, but it subsides quickly.

Quick and Convenient

Each SWIFT therapy session takes only a few seconds per application, making it a quick and convenient treatment option. Patients can easily fit these sessions into their busy schedules without significant disruption to their daily routines.

Minimal Side Effects

SWIFT therapy has minimal post-treatment side effects. Patients may experience mild soreness in the treated area, but this typically does not interfere with their daily activities. There is no need for extensive downtime or recovery, making it a practical choice for wart removal.

Suitable for Most Patients

SWIFT therapy is suitable for most individuals with warts, including children and adults. However, it’s essential to undergo an assessment by a qualified podiatrist to determine if this treatment is appropriate for your specific case.

What to Expect During SWIFT Microwave Therapy at AC Podiatry

When you visit AC Podiatry for SWIFT microwave therapy, you can expect a thorough and personalised approach to your care. Our experienced podiatrists will assess your wart and discuss the treatment process with you in detail.

Most patients require 3-5 sessions of SWIFT therapy, spaced around four weeks apart, to achieve optimal results. This treatment schedule allows for thorough targeting of the wart and enhances the likelihood of complete removal.

After each session, your podiatrist will provide you with post-treatment care instructions. These may include keeping the treated area clean and dry, avoiding friction or pressure on the wart, and monitoring for any signs of infection. Our team will be available to address any concerns or questions you may have throughout the treatment process.
