Swift® microwave therapy provides a safe and effective way to treat and eliminate plantar warts. Instead of using traditional methods like cryotherapy or salicylic acid, Swift uses advanced technology that’s minimally invasive and pain-free. At Hunter Foot & Ankle Associates, PLLC, Roderick C. Hunter Jr., DPM, AACFAS, offers Swift microwave therapy to people of all ages. To make an appointment at the practice in Plano, Texas, call the office today, or click the online booking feature.
Swift microwave therapy is a minimally invasive treatment for plantar warts. It uses FDA-cleared microwave technology to target the HPV virus. Aside from eliminating the virus, Swift encourages your body’s natural immune response.
Swift microwave therapy is much safer than traditional treatments for plantar warts. There’s no breaking of the skin or bandages. Following your appointment, you can return to work and other daily activities right away.
Swift microwave therapy is an outpatient procedure. At the beginning of your appointment, Dr. Hunter has you take off your socks. Next, he places a handheld probe on top of your wart. The probe directs low-frequency microwave energy beneath the surface of your skin, coming into contact with and destroying the virus.
To ensure long-lasting results, it’s important to undergo a series of three or four* treatments. After each appointment, you wait a month before returning to Hunter Foot & Ankle Associates, PLLC. The break between treatments encourages your body’s natural immune response.
Swift microwave therapy is safe and usually well-tolerated. The treatment itself feels very similar to cryotherapy or an injection. For example, you might experience a sharp pain that lasts for a few seconds and then subsides immediately.
Following your appointment, you can return to work, exercise, and other normal activities. If you experience any pain or tenderness, take over-the-counter pain medication or apply an ice pack to your foot.
Swift microwave therapy offers various benefits, including:
What’s more, you only have to visit Hunter Foot & Ankle Associates, PLLC once a month.
Only a qualified podiatrist like Dr. Hunter can determine if you’re a candidate for Swift microwave therapy. Following a review of your medical history, a discussion of your symptoms, and a comprehensive foot exam, he can develop a custom treatment plan that aligns with your needs.
