Microwave Treatment of Warts

Plantar Warts – Zap that Wart With Microwaves
…….A new use for an old technology

Briefly, warts are a virus which infects the skin and is invisible to your immune system. Remember this part it will be important a little later.


There are a number of treatment for plantar warts or warts on the foot.


For a more thorough discussion of these go to my wart page here.

What to Expect When Getting Your Swift Las Vegas Wart Treatment
Swift protocol involves between 3 and 4 treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart; aligning with the body’s natural immune cycle. Each treatment lasts only 5-10 minutes and is what we call a “sock off – sock on” treatment: Limited debridement, no breaking of the skin, no bandages. No home treatment is required between treatments and patients are able to resume daily activities immediately post treatment.

How Effective is SWIFT?
Due to Swift harnessing the power of the patient’s immune system to target the root cause of the wart (HPV), efficacy is significantly higher compared to other treatment methods.


Does it hurt?
While pain is variable and patient/lesion specific, most patients typically feel some level of discomfort as infected tissue temperatures are rapidly elevated over a 2 second dose of energy. The pain immediately subsides following cessation of energy delivery and there is very limited post procedural pain, in fact some report an immediate reduction in pain levels. All patients are about to continue on with day-to-day activities immediately following treatment.
