Plantar warts are scaly growths of tissue that form on the load-bearing parts of the foot amongst those who are suffering from viral infections, specifically HPV (the Human Papilloma Virus). Plantar warts can develop into calluses and legions that are rough to touch and have a propensity to cut or bleed. Plantar warts usually dissipate after some time but they can be a nuisance for those who insist on being in top physical shape all the time and for whom being free of pain and discomfort is non-negotiable.

Swift Microwave Therapy for Plantar Wart Treatment

A spokesperson for Central Connecticut Footcare Center educates readers on the techniques available to cure plantar warts by saying, “There are a few options that you can try. First is over-the-counter medications. However, these take a long time to work and may not be fully effective depending on the extent of the infection. Cryotherapy is another popular method of getting rid of them. In cryotherapy, liquid nitrogen is used to cause a blister to form around the wart. The dead tissue then sheds off in as little as a week. However, it may require local anesthesia. Cryotherapy is also known to damage areas surrounding the infected growth, causing undue discomfort. Thankfully, Central Connecticut Footcare Center has now switched to the use of the revolutionary Saorsa Swift Microwave Treatment System that is the perfect solution for cleanly getting rid of plantar warts without pain and without requiring anesthesia.”

The Swift System is a surface-based device intended for the coagulation of soft tissue during non-invasive procedures. The Swift generator is a unique and compact design with a simple user interface that allows for a quick treatment setup. It produces microwaves that deliver a precise, highly controlled energy dose into the skin. Microwaves are a form of non-ionizing radiation, which means that they can’t cause damage to the DNA of living things making their use in treatments extremely safe. Unlike cryotherapy, salicylic acid, or laser ablation, the microwaves travel to a pre-determined depth and don’t break the surface of the skin beyond the point of application. The result is a fast, pain-free treatment that does not require anesthesia and also does not require any dressing of the foot post the procedure. The microwave therapy also does not produce any smoke, plume, or smells.

Central Connecticut Footcare Center also provides a range of other services and treatment for conditions such as Aetrex, ankle sprains, athlete's foot, bunions, custom orthotics, diabetic foot, Dr. Comfort diabetic footwear, corns, flat feet, Haglund's deformity, hammertoes, heel spurs, ingrown toenail, KeryFlex®, Morton's neuroma, plantar fasciitis, Quadrastep® System®, stress fracture, tendonitis, and toenail fungus.
