With no downtime and minimal discomfort, we are excited to offer Swift microwave therapy in Flagstaff, AZ, to help you get relief!
How Swift Therapy Works
Swift is a cutting-edge, FDA-approved technology that is highly effective at removing plantar warts. Plantar warts form on the heels or balls of your feet and are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). These types of warts grow into the foot, making them difficult to treat from the surface.
Swift addresses this by delivering low-dose microwave energy through a probe that targets the root of the problem — the underlying HPV virus. By stimulating a natural immune response in the body, the microwave energy prompts the immune system to attack the HPV virus, therefore eliminating the wart.
Does Swift Therapy Hurt?
There is minor discomfort associated with this treatment. Pain varies between patients, but most people feel some discomfort for 2-3 seconds as tissue temperatures are elevated. No anesthesia is needed and any pain immediately subsides after the probe is removed. There is very little post-procedural pain and no need for at-home care.
Swift treatment averages between 2-3 visits, with each treatment lasting 5-10 minutes. The treatments are spaced 4 weeks apart to match the body’s natural immune cycle. Between visits, the wart will gradually shrink as your immune system goes to work.
Since Swift does not break the surface of the skin, no bandages are required and you can go about your day as normal after each session. Our podiatrist will discuss when, and how many, follow-up visits should be scheduled based on your specific case. Our team will carefully evaluate your progress during each treatment.
Who Should Get Swift?
Swift can benefit anyone who is suffering from warts and is looking for the most effective solution to remove them. If you are concerned that you may have a lesion and want to have it effectively removed, our podiatrist will help diagnose you and see if Swift is the right treatment for you.
There are certain conditions that have contraindications with microwave therapy. These include peripheral neuropathy, medications that suppress the immune system, a history of poor healing, illnesses that affect the immune system, metal pins in the feet or ankles, having a pacemaker, or being pregnant. Our podiatrist will advise you during your consultation to ensure your safety!
