Concord MA Podiatrist Practice Now Offers Advanced Wart Treatment for Getting Rid of Plantar Warts

July 15, 2022 at 17:46

Concord Foot & Ankle Center, a podiatry practice in Concord and Westford, MA, is happy to announce that they now have the advanced Saorsa Swift microwave wart treatment machine for removing plantar warts. Plantar warts are benign growths that can be found on the sole, heel, or ball of the foot. And just like other warts, they are caused the human papillomavirus (HPV). The Swift machine is an FDA approved device with a specialized probe for directing low dose microwave energy to the plantar warts. The microwave energy increases the temperature of the affected tissue rapidly, which is then expected to stimulate the body’s natural immune response.

The Saorsa Swift device is a cutting edge FDA cleared technology that has been shown to be highly effective in getting rid of plantar warts. It is through a special probe that a low dose microwave energy is delivered to the area that has bee infected by the HPV virus and this triggers the natural immune response in the body by elevating the temperature of the tissue. And to make sure that there is no risk of cross contamination, the Swift generator has an in-built sensor that will only enable operation when a new, unused tip is attached to the applicator.

The Swift procedure requires 3 to 4 treatment sessions and these are scheduled four weeks apart in order to ensure that they are in line with the natural immune cycle of the body. Every treatment session will only last for about 5 to 10 minutes. And the treatment will not cause any break in the skin and there is only minimal debridement, which means no bandages will be required. And patients can return to their daily duties immediately after the treatment. The Swift treatment has been observed to have a much higher efficacy when compared to other treatment methods.

It is important to note that treatment using the Swift machine is much faster compared to other treatments because of the use of microwave energy. And it allows for an accurate, highly controlled dose of microwave energy to a pre-determined depth into the skin. It is the pre-determined depth that sets the Swift treatment apart from other traditional treatments. There is no break on the surface of the skin nor any destroyed tissue at the point of application. This also means cleaner treatment since there are no bandages and no need for an anesthetic.
