Swift Microwave Plantar Warts Q & A
What are plantar warts?
Plantar warts are small, roughly textured growths that develop on the soles of your feet. They’re caused by a virus called human papillomavirus (HPV) and easily spread from person to person. All it takes is a small cut or scrape on the bottom of your foot to allow this virus to gain access.
Some signs you might have plantar wart include:
- Sensations of having pebbles or rocks in your shoes
- Areas of hard, thickened skin on the soles of your feet
- Lumps or bumps on the soles of your feet
- Painful or tenderness when you walk or place pressure on your feet
Because plantar warts grow inward into your body, they can be very uncomfortable. Because there’s no way to avoid putting weight on the soles of your feet each day, many people find plantar warts to be painful and disruptive to daily routines.
How can Swift Microwave therapy help treat plantar warts?
The Swift protocol uses carefully controlled, low-dose microwave energy to target the plantar wart tissue. Treatment focuses on creating heat that damages the wart and prompts your body’s natural immune response.
The heat created during short treatment sessions damages the wart, even the portions deep within your skin. That damaged tissue is cleared away through your lymphatic system and eliminated from your body just like any other form of tissue debris.
Treatments take just a few moments. There’s no need for advance preparation and no recovery time. You won’t need any form of anesthesia during sessions. Depending on the size of your wart and how your body responds to treatment, you may need a series of short treatment sessions to achieve desired results.
Is Swift Microwave therapy a painful process?
There is no significant pain associated with Swift Microwave therapy. Some people report a brief sensation like a quick sting, burn, or scratch. Others liken the experience to the pinch felt during a vaccine injection.
These sensations occur only briefly and are easily tolerated by most. Some people experience pain relief from plantar warts immediately after their first Swift Microwave therapy treatment.
