Do pesky warts leave you feeling embarrassed and frustrated? Are you desperate to get rid of them, but dreading the pain, inconvenience, and low cure rates of most common treatments?
We feel you. Fortunately, we have some great news! There’s a newer, better way to deal with those warts. It’s called Swift, and we’re excited to be able to provide it for our patients.
What is Swift?
Swift is a state-of-the-art, FDA-cleared treatment system that has proven not only extremely effective at getting rid of plantar warts, but does so with minimal discomfort and maximum convenience.
Instead of burning or freezing a wart off, a low dose of microwaves is sent into the upper layers of skin for just two or three seconds, using a specialized and completely non-invasive probe. This draws the attention of the immune system, which rushes to the area to eliminate the underlying infection.
In other words, you’re not “removing” the wart, you’re healing it. Once the infection is gone, the wart disappears on its own.
What Can I Expect?
A single appointment lasts only a few minutes, and does not require any incisions, injections, or chemicals of any kind—not even anesthesia.
The wart is gently debrided, then the microwave therapy is applied for 2-3 seconds. It might feel like a scratch, injection, or sudden heating sensation, but any discomfort you might feel should be mild and extremely short-lived.
Once finished, you can go back to your regular activities. There is no need to keep you at the office, and no aftercare at home is required. There should be no lingering pain, and you don’t even need a bandage.
A typical treatment course involves 3-4 treatments on a monthly schedule.
Because Swift heals the underlying infection rather than simply addressing the symptoms, warts that are eliminated using this treatment are less likely to recur.
Ready to Say Goodbye to Your Warts?
Getting started with treatment as soon as possible will not only help you get the results you’re looking for sooner, but also reduce the risk that your warts will multiply or spread in the meantime.
And because Swift is painless, effective, and has no noticeable side effects of any kind, you have nothing to worry about!
