Warts are caused by different strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV). Plantar warts are some of the toughest to treat. They are flat, tough, and thick lesions that appear on the palms and soles. Diagnosis is usually made by looking at the skin, sometimes with the aid of a specialized instrument called a dermatoscope. Though they are not a serious health concern, they can severely affect a person’s quality of life. Dermatologists have relied on a few popular wart treatments over the years which differ in terms of their cost to the patient, complexity, recovery time, the number of sessions required, and more.
Cryotherapy, one of the most widely available and popular treatments for warts, uses liquid nitrogen to freeze and destroy them. Saliylic acid is a topical medication applied at-home that leads to peeling of the affected skin cells over weeks of use. Cantharidin is a topical derived from the blister beetle that treats the wart by forming a blister that crusts over and peels off. Finally, injections with candida antigen, chemotherapy medicines, or antiviral medicines are sometimes performed for resistant or widespread warts.
However, all of the aforementioned treatments have drawbacks that lead to complaints from patients such as excessive pain and discomfort during the procedures, unreasonably long recovery times, or impreciseness which damages healthy surrounding tissues.
The Saorsa Swift Microwave Therapy system has been designed to address these concerns and offer an alternative that is overall cleaner and safer. The Swift system uses the unique properties of microwave energy to raise the temperature of the affected tissue. Since the microwave energy is highly targeted and travels only in straight lines to a depth of no more than 6.5mm, there is no lateral spread or excessive penetration, leading to a highly controllable treatment zone.
For patients, the Saorsa Swift Microwave Therapy procedure means faster pain-free treatments that produce no smoke, require no anesthetic, and no post-procedural dressing. Recovery times are also much lower as compared to conventional wart treatments. Moreover, microwaves are a form of non-ionizing radiation and have been used in medical procedures for decades, making their use for plantar warts removal completely safe.
Central Dermatology Center is one of the select few clinics across the United States that is equipped to offer the Saorsa Swift Microwave Therapy procedure. The North Carolina-based dermatology clinic bills itself as a provider of “skin care for childhood to beyond retirement.” Readers can keep up with news and announcements from the clinic by following its Facebook page at the link: https://www.instagram.com/centraldermatologycenter/.
