Cutting-Edge Treatment to Restore Foot Health
If you suffer from plantar warts and are looking for relief, you’re in the right place! At Milwaukee Foot and Ankle Specialists, we are now offering a brand new treatment for surface skin lesions. This state-of-the-art technology is called Swift® microwave therapy and it is an effective method to remove stubborn warts by treating their root cause. With no downtime and minimal discomfort, we are excited to offer Swift microwave therapy in Milwaukee, WI, to help you get relief!
How Does Swift Work?
Swift is a cutting-edge, FDA-approved technology that is highly effective for 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.
Swift treatment averages between 3-4 visits, with each treatment lasting 5-10 minutes. The treatments are spaced 4 weeks apart to match the body’s 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.
Is Swift Painful?
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!
Who Can Benefit From 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 take care of it, 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, a history of poor healing, medications that suppress the immune system, illnesses that affect the immune system, metal pins in the feet/ankles, having a pacemaker, or being pregnant. Our podiatrist will advise you during your consultation to ensure your safety!
